Opinion: The Nokia N900

by Dan Lane 13th November 2009

For some reason the mobile industry has started to bore me. There has been very little released recently that has actually excited me. No real revolution to speak of. There was a new revision of the iPhone in the iPhone 3GS, Android has continued it’s slow plodding march to world domination and there was that […]

by Ben Smith 5th November 2009

The much-anticipated Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 – an Android powered  touch-screen smartphone has been announced adding yet another platform to the Sony Ericsson stable.

Symbian Horizon: Here we go again…

by Ben Smith 4th November 2009

Criticising awful application stores has been a hobby of ours for some time now. Symbian Horizon‘s not an application store, but it should be much, much better… On this performance Symbian apps will soon be little more than an enthusiasts’ playground and a commercial train-wreck.

First Look: Kinoma Play for Symbian

by Ben Smith 30th October 2009

Kinoma Play is a media-consuming power-house of an S60 application. Fast and refined, even in this its first non-Windows Mobile incarnation it justifies a hefty $30 price-tag, giving my pre-historic N82 a new lease of life. When the initial pitch on an S60 application – especially an S60 3rd edition (non-touch) application – is referenced […]

We take a look at some of the VoIP calling features built-in to the Nokia N900. We used a WiFi connection in this video but it also works over 3G and 3.5G (sadly it’s a poor experience on anything less than 3G). This feature was brought to you in association with VoIP.co.uk. If you want […]
