In case you’ve been living under a rock, the Google Nexus One was announced, available for purchase, and shipped at the same time just a couple of days ago. Mine was just delivered and the first thing I wanted to do is compare it in size with Nokia’s own super-phone, the Nokia N900. Take a look.
Setting up Google Sync on my Nokia 5800 after reading the announcement on Wednesday made me very happy! Whatever I edit or add on my phone’s calendar or contacts automatically show up within minutes in my computer. This works from computer to phone as well. Since the data is stored by Google, it is also accessible from any computer I use with internet connection. The best thing about this is I don’t need to manually sync each time I make any changes. Thanks Google!
I previously talked about using SpinVox to read my voicemails, but since I use a lot of Google’s products anyway, why not try the new Google Voice as well? Its main purpose is one new number will ring all your phones at home, office, etc. However, I don’t want to give my friends a new number and I already carry my Nokia phone everywhere. I just want to use the voicemail-to-text service. I’ll show you how to set it up.
I get frustrated whenever Nokia Maps cannot find places I search for. I end up opening Google Maps instead which finds them every time, but it doesn’t have turn-by-turn voice navigation that I want from Nokia Maps. I’m glad that the two apps share bookmarks or favorite places to fix that problem.
Google released a search application for S60 last month and it has been very useful. I just press the pencil button on the Nokia N95 home screen, then a Google search form shows up ready for my query. Let me tell you how it helped me and my classmates remember the names of the seven dwarfs.
