How to: Downloading Ovi Store .sis installation files from Desktop Web Browser for offline phone install

November 22, 2010 10 comments

Here’s a very quick and useful tip from Iain Wallace of doitdifferent.wordpress.com on how to download the .sis/.sisx installation files directly from Ovi Store. Now why would you want this? Well you might not have WiFi or mobile data on your phone but may have access to a desktop with internet.

I’d sure as heck like a PC download and installation of apps as my uni accommodation this year has pants signal and NO WiFi. (Come on Ovi Suite!)

Videos: Nokia X2-01 and Nokia C2-01 (launches today.)

Below are a couple of official Nokia ads for the Nokia X2-01 (budget QWERTY) and the Nokia C2-01 (most inexpensive new 3G from Nokia) sporting a very classic Nokia candy bar style. And according to Nokia Conversations, BOTH have launched today with the X2-01 expected around 80 EUR and C2-01 around 70 EUR but prices will vary depending on local taxes and operator subsidies. X2-01 is available this quarter  and C2-01 is expected around Q1 2011.

Gallery: Nokia N8 by Nokia N8: White Background Macro Photography (and using Photo Editor’s Highlights and Shadows)

November 22, 2010 14 comments


Prior to the Nokia N8 I relied on the N82 for product shots. Yes, I could have used a digicam but I just like the simplicity of sending a bunch of photos over bluetooth. No looking for wires, removing any memory cards, just click and send.

Anyway, I was checking out the N8 to see how it would fare and thought I’d share some of the raw unedited photos as well as on board photo editing. You can see full sized pics by clicking at the gallery at the end of this post.

The selection here are of the black and white shots of another Nokia N8. Being already black there’s not really that much of a drastic change.

Video: Classic Snake II on the Nokia N8 (for Symbian^3 and S60 5th) at Ovi Store

November 22, 2010 1 comment

The World’s most popular phone game SNAKE is available for download at the Ovi Store. This isn’t an official Nokia one but it sure as heck is a lot of fun, especially as it looks like the original 3310 version, complete with the pixelated snake and green-tone black and white LCD. I’ve only tried on N8 but Ovi Store says it will work for S60 5th too.

  • Works really well with touch (not sure if it will accept keys, e.g. N97). Press the screen in the direction you want the snake to move. With touch it’ll take some getting used to to get those super quick snake U-turns.
  • Move the snake in the direction of the food. Avoid hitting yourself or obstacles. Can pass through one side of screen from other (Snake II)
  • You can set the speed of the snake from 1 (very slow) to 10 (very fast).
  • Works in portrait
  • As usual as you progress, you’ll unlock different levels (20 in total) with obstacles in the way
  • You can even switch the appearance of the snake to resemble
