This out of the Nokia Press Bulletin Board... Snake, the most iconic mobile game franchise of all time, was the inspiration behind what could be arguably the world’s longest human snake. The streets of
Lisbon, Portugal set the scene for the stop-motion film titled ‘Get out and play’ where more than one thousand volunteers took part in forming the famous snake.

The application fetches you the latest text messages from your connected Nokia device. Naturally, the latest messages are displayed first. A gadget for Windows Vista, Nokia Text Messenger comes in two different sizes. If you want to place the application in your Windows Sidebar, you can opt for Nokia Text Messenger in a smaller size. The sidebar gadget lets you view three text messages at a time. See more at http://www.nokia.com/betalabs/textmessenger
This comes from Beta Labs Blog... Nokia Step Counter does what it says on the tin: it counts the number of steps you take by analyzing how you ’shake’ your phone. Since most people have their phone with them everywhere they go, it is natural to use the accelerometer in an S60 product to track your daily activity.

With Nokia Location Tagger, you can automatically tag your location data to your pictures. As you take a picture, your GPS coordinates are saved to the EXIF header of the JPEG file. You can use this data later, for example, to locate your pictures on a map. Try it out!
Are you a mobile camera power user? If so then you know about Shozu (I hope) if not then you should, particularly if you like to blog your photos, flickr them or share them with others. Shozu recently updated to R4 and the geotagging support has been enhanced - to date I was never really happy with the results. Over on the Shozu Blog the team has provided a nice primer on how the shozu GeoTagging works and provides a cool tour of San Fran - see also shozu.com
