The N-Gage Platform Showroom - N-Gage coming soon

Recall the N-Gage platform will be launching in December.. Nokia has a showroom where you can get a glimpse of what's coming. See
I can't wait to try connected, multi-player, location-enabled gaming... wow!

Another Nokia N95 up on Ebay.. when will it end?

Looks like Ed Parsons has joined the growing number of ex-N95 users and hopped on the iPhone bandwagon - no real surprise really as Ed comes from the Google camp is likely pressured internally to drink the cool aid! Too bad although ed does have some good points... indeed the second iteration of the N95 is much superior to the original (too bad I still have the original N95 -- and I'm one the biggest advocates of the N95.. go figure!). Ed's reason.. usability and you can't blame him.. Nokia smartphones indeed have the ability to run much more software and the applications available for the S60 ecosystem are plentiful to say the least. Here in North America no carriers (that I know of) are boasting the N95 whereas AT&T is pushing the iPhone.. no doubt some politics as it's THE smartphone of choice for the company to promote.. add to the fact that the AT&T CEO is not big on Nokia and feels the devices are full of flaws and he's also majorly ticked off that us here in North America get the latest Nokia devices months after they come to Europe. I'll still never be able to figure out Nokia's plans for North America and once again it seems that they are letting the iPhone steal more marketshare from themm just wait til next year when Android enabled devices come to market.. will there be any Nokia and Symbian OS faithful left in North America?

Take your N95 Geolocated photos into Google Maps via Geo-RSS with ease!

This may be old-school for some of you, others will appreciate this simple tip. If you use a GPS-enabled cameraphone (like the Nokia N95, N82, Nokia Navigator etc...) then you can easily post your photos to flickr or other online services (use a tool like Shozu to help with this). But did you know that Flickr creates a Geo-rSS feed from your photo stream? Even better, you can simply copy and paste your Geo-RSS feed location into the google maps search bar and voila... your photos are now available via Google maps to share with others, save to your mymaps or whatever the heck you want to do. Simply look at the bottom of your flickr page, you'll see options like RSS, GeoFeed and KML - yes you can easily open your photos in Google Earth too!

AT&T CEO on Symbian smartphones in the US

A great interview over at engadget has the CEO of AT&T on the hotseat. He apparently doesn't hold back and is ticked off because the Europeans get all the cool devices months ahead of us and he cites devices that are full of flaws as another reason for devices like the N75 and E62 dragging their heels getting to market in the US. Sounds like a lame excuse to me... hey de la Vega, start stocking some freaking Symbian smartphones at AT&T will ya!! More on this over at symbianone or see the interview at Engadget

T-Mobile USA with more flexible customer contracts

This from T-Mobile.. perhaps some relief from those pesky contract penalties... T-Mobile USA, Inc. has announced upcoming changes that will result in a new and more flexible policy for customers entering into contracts for service with T-Mobile USA. Under the company’s new guidelines, early termination fees (ETFs) will decline during the course of a customer’s contract with T-Mobile. The new ETF policy, and the specific details of the policy, are expected to be finalized and introduced in the first half of 2008. When they become effective, the terms will apply to new customers as well as current customers renewing contracts with T-Mobile. We'll wait and see what happens with this!

Boopsie, smart, local search

I just ran into a very cool new local search app called Boopsie. The app supports all major mobile platforms (even S60 3) and offers a great search tool for mobile users. I'm still testing but one cool feature is a mobile gateway to your facebook account.. providing access to all your friends and you can poke them or message them from your mobile.. this is very nice for me since facebook mobile doesn't support t-mobile but this application does. There's loads of other search channels providing fast access to common questions... like what's the score in the game, what's the weather, etc... you can grab teh free download for you r mobile by visiting on your mobile browser- all you can eat data is recommended!
