New Nokia N900 PR1.3 firmware available for download!

October 25, 2010 21 comments

I’m typing this from my N900. I don’t know why but everytime I’m hundreds of miles away from home or uni (for another nokia thing most of the time) a new Nokia firmware comes out that I cannot download. ha.

Anyway, the little update flashy notification thing buzzed and confirmed that indeed the new firmware PR1.3 is available. No idea what changes will come about. Will update possibly tomorrow when I get to my lappy and check it out myself or get the change log.

Event: The Commuter Premiere tonight in London – the long awaited Nokia N8 movie

October 25, 2010 1 comment

Tonight in London will be the Premiere of ‘The Commuter’, a film shot entirely on the Nokia N8. It’s directed by the McHenry Brothers and has an all star cast including none other than Dev Patel (Skins, Slum Dog Millionaire, Last Air Bender), Pamela Anderson, Ed Westwick and Charles Dance.

If the train schedule works out ok I’ll be there myself to take some snaps and interview the McHenry Brothers (director of the recent Jackboots on Whitehall, dubbed the British Team America by some). I know it’s late and should have asked you guys last week but if you have any questions you want asked comment below and hopefully i’ll get that in time through email notification.

It kicks off at 7 and finishes around 10 though the red carpety bit happens around 5. I think anyway.

 

blogged from n900. No netbooks required.

Nokia N8 showcased on thetrainline.com’s coming soon mobile app! (Android ignored)

October 25, 2010 6 comments

Interesting that the whole "Nokia" brand feels sort of diluted - there are some great smartphones but there are also may cheapo disposable Nokias. On the upside, it's the only manufacturer brand here. I do like how Android is totally left out. haha. It's just there with "most other mobile phones"

When I was booking my tickets the other day, I noticed that in the mobile app section, instead of the always present iPhone, the Nokia N8 appeared to demo the trainline app.

Thetrainline.com is a leading independent retailer of train tickets in the UK. It’s a useful website to check train times as well as purchase tickets in advance. (Alternative services include nationalrail.co.uk). Annoyingly the mobile web version (which it always directs to) is quite frustrating to use so I’m looking forward to this mobile app. (Based on the screenshot, it looks very touch-friendly)

There is an app currently available for S60 5th Edition devices called “UK Rail” where you can check train times WITHOUT the need for the web version.

Video: Priyanka Chopra on the Nokia N8

Indian Actress and former miss world Priyanka Chopra confesses her love for the Nokia N8. Well she is a Nokia brand ambassador. When asked is this Nokia’s come back phone, Chopra answers that “I don’t see it as a come back. Nokia never went anywhere”. Ha.

Chopra says she’d prefer a nerdy techy to a hot non-techy. I’m not sure if she’s really all that techy, but who cares :D.
