December 10, 2010 26 comments

Have you hard reset your Nokia N8? Did you happen to lose Ovi Store?

Here are instructions as well as a how to video on how to get it back.

Before you start, you’ll need:

1. Nokia Qt Package from wiki.forum.nokia (consist Nokia Qt 4.6 and Nokia Qt 4.7)
2. Nokia Qt SDK
3. USB Cable

“Leo The Lion” from LeoTech89 has produced the following step by step on how to get it done. I’m not sure if it works but the two comments so far in the video seem to indicate that it does.

  1. Download Nokia Qt Package from wiki.forum.nokia and extract the package. There will be Qt 4.7 for Symbian^3 and Qt 4.6 for Symbian^3

Tweets Sent from Nokia N9 and Nokia N9 Widget?

December 10, 2010 29 comments

This is from @davidgilson's Gravity app taking a screenshot of @SimonLR's tweets.

I don’t know what this is about but Adnan sent in a screenshot from @SimonLR who’s twitter says he’s tweeting from Nokia N9 and Nokia N9 Widget.

  • -WOW
  • -I’m just going to leave this tweet here and see what happens
  • -There’s home screen widgets
  • – This keyboard is spacious
  • -Ovi Store doesn’t work

Simon’s friend, @MikeMacias: says:

I don’t know if @SimonLR got his hands on N9 today but don’t think he’d kid. Simon resigned from @mobile_fanatics and TMF doesn’t have it

Those tweets aren’t up any more. But plenty of people have seen it. Twitter fault/masking?

update: The original batch of tweets still there, sent 13h ago (hence why not in recent block of tweets).

Additional details:

  • Nokia fans, save your money for the next few months
  • Android and iOS don’t have shit on this. Not even close

My Dream Nokia #7 – Nokia N8-01 Touch and Play

December 10, 2010 7 comments

Dream Nokia #7 is sent in as a video by Iffan Morasilp from Thailand and is called the Nokia N8-01 Touch and Play.

  • 3.7″ Gorilla Glass display
  • 8MP Carl Zeiss
  • 1080p recording and playback
  • D-pad and gaming keys
  • HDMI
  • 4G
  • Dolby Digital Plus

It is N86 in design so I don’t know if they want a slide up keyboard. (UPDATE:intention is slim candybar)

This could also be our first Dream Nokia based on Symbian. Everything else thus far has been MeeGo (which btw, if you want Android/WP7/iOS that’s ok because it is just a “dream” :p)

Remind you of the recently leaked Nseries prototype?
