Search for N: Clue 1

by Ben Smith 27th May 2009

After last week’s excitement the first clue made it to me in a surprising form today: Flicking through the book, I didn’t notice anything odd about it, other than Helsinki looks like a great place to head to for the next city-break.  I put it aside and went off to organise awesome things for our […]

App Stores: How hard can it be? [Nokia Ovi Store]

by Ben Smith 26th May 2009

With the launch of Nokia’s OVI store today many, including myself, were expecting – even hoping – that Nokia would re-assert its authority and roll out the ‘mother of all app stores’. The signs have certainly been positive – built-in operator billing (where operators wanted it) and a market that put content and apps side-by-side in an even more seamless way than Apple’s effort were all good news, but now it’s live I worry Nokia are clutching defeat from the jaws of victory.

T-Mobile's Content Block System: Broken

by Ben Smith 11th May 2009

Having got my Cupcake over-the-air firmware update for my G1 on Friday morning I was looking forward to a weekend of ‘spot the difference’ and loading my first widgets.  It would appear T-Mobile have different ideas… From about mid-afternoon on Friday access to the Android Marketplace and many websites has been prevented by their content-blocking […]

Nokia E52 announced: It's a winner

by Ben Smith 7th May 2009

Yesterday Nokia announced the E52 to relatively little fanfare (with apologies to the people in Warsaw at the event).  It’s an ultra-slim candybar unit with a huge battery (1500mAh – the same as the E71 / E63 and even the flagship N97) – effectively it’s the same as the E55 without the Blackberry-esque 20 key […]
