There isn’t a lot of applications for the Nokia N900 at the Ovi Store, so it’s kind of a big deal when new apps show up. The latest one I noticed is called WikiHow. It lets you access over 60,000 how-to articles on several topics. For example, I just learned how to practice proper sushi etiquette. I like what WikiHow is trying to do, but I have a couple of things to complain about their app.
I’ll have more impressions and write a review in the near future, but for now, feast your eyes on the Nokia 5800 Navigation Edition and my unboxing. There are a lot of things inside the box, but I managed to keep this video short and to the point. Take a look.
2G/3G Mode Selection Applet works exactly as it sounds. Installing this applet adds 3 buttons to the Nokia N900′s status menu that lets the user change between 2G only, 3G only, or Dual (3G priority) connection. This is a really quick way to change modes without going through other settings. I made a video to show you how it looks.
I’ve been using the second beta to Nokia Messaging for Social Networks the weekend before today’s official announcement. If you need a reminder, the first beta was released at Nokia World, supporting only Facebook. The new version adds new options for Facebook and adds support for Twitter. Read on for some of my feedback.
The Booklet 3G is Nokia’s first netbook, but they’re trying not to label it as such. It’s supposed to be a mini laptop for all-day mobility allowing up to 12 hours on a single charge. It looks great, too. The Nokia Booklet 3G’s chassis is made from a single piece of machined aluminum, similar to Apple’s Macbooks. How do I like it? Read on for the review.
It’s hard to like the S60v5 again after using a Maemo device like the Nokia N900. I’ve been trying to use the Nokia N97 mini to write a thorough review, but I always ended up putting it down quickly. Want to know what I think in one sentence? The Nokia N97 mini looks damn good and packs a lot of features, but I would recommend other devices before this one.
Hey, it’s not a netbook! I’ve got the brand new Nokia Booklet 3G for AT&T in hand and it’s not hard to see that it’s a beauty. The chassis is made from a single piece of machined aluminum, weighs only 2.76 lbs, and .78 inch thin. If it didn’t have a Nokia branding on it, I would have thought it was a mini Apple Macbook. I’m working on the review right now, but here’s some unboxing photos to whet your appetite.
On Monday I met up with a few Nokia folks for some time with the Nokia Booklet 3G for AT&T in the US. We bowled afterwards too, but I won’t tell you how bad I scored. Instead, I’ll give you an overview of the Booklet, thanks to Nokia’s Joe Gallo who didn’t mind getting in front of camera for our blog readers.
