Summer is approaching and ending for others, but it won’t stop me from fishing for apps at the Ovi Store. It’s time again to share my catch. All of them are totally free and published by the company, Offscreen. There were lots of worthy paid apps, but I know most of you are more eager to see good free apps.
Mobile Review got their hands on the Nokia N8 and wrote a preview before an official announcement came out from Nokia. They are disappointed with the device’s software, Symbian^3, but the hardware could lure cameraphone fans: 12mp camera, xenon and LED flash, HD video recording, video stabilization, HDMI output.
The Nokia E72 has been in the market for a while now, but I haven’t personally spent time with it yet. A review unit just arrived and I’ve prepared some unboxing photos and video to go along with it. I’ll spend some quality time with the E72 and share my thoughts afterwards. Check it out.
Power users can drain their devices of battery life within a couple of hours if they wanted to. One solution from Nokia that can help extend the battery life of your devices is the Nokia DC-11 Extra Power charger. Not only does it provide up to one charge, but its slim design and rugged build quality make it really easy to carry in your other pocket or just throw in the bag.
My Nokia phones need to find my position accurately and quickly since I use location services like geotagging photos, checking-in on Foursquare, or navigating with Ovi maps. Fortunately there’s a revolutionary app called Maps Booster that helps your Symbian phone find your location really fast no matter what other applications need it. That’s right… I said revolutionary. If you don’t believe me, watch Steve Jobs explain the awesome technology behind the app.
Morpho QuickPanorama showed up in the Ovi Store for the Nokia N900 this week. It lets you take panoramic photographs by only moving the camera to capture a wide landscape. Users don’t need to snap multiple pictures and join them later on. The ease of use will definitely attract more people towards panoramic photography.
If you know anyone else who makes better car mounts, let us know, because ProClip is definitely up there. The latest device holders they sent for me to review are for the Nokia N97 and N97 mini. Not only are the fit and build quality top-notch, but they also allow you to slide the devices open to use the keyboard if needed.
I can’t give you proper reviews of Nokia devices if I don’t try other phones from other manufacturers for comparison. I’ve been using the Google Nexus One in the past 30 days and have been really enjoying it. I’ll share my review of the Nexus One with lots of comparisons to Nokia’s current superphone, the Nokia N900.
