MyNokiaBlog Weekly Post Roundup (Ep 3) Nokia Soars, N90000 and #symbiancountdown

January 30, 2010 Leave a comment

Some highlights of the final week of January 2010: we saw a fantastic game for the N900 called Numpty Physics, and Hiren showed us how to send MMS from the N900. WOMWorld played guess who with 40 Booklet 3Gs whilst Symbian put out a mysterious countdown (still ticking down – iz gonna be big apparently) and Apple announced a feminine hygiene solution.

Nokia set the record straight for Steve Jobs about definitively being number one in the mobile industry, exceeding expectations with increased market share and profits. We also saw some MS paint mockups of a 4/row, tilted screen N900, as well as the tablet N90000 and N900 XL :p. Out of 198 votes, you guys crowned the Laptop as the most productive device, second was the N900/Smartphone. iPad came last with a shameful 8% of the votes…across the web, even die hard Apple fans couldn’t see the practicality behind it.

Finally, FireFox 1.0 became available for N900 users.

Countdown.Symbian.Org: 108 – Secret over at Symbian #symbiancountdown

January 27, 2010 13 comments

Last night, Symbian tweeted about a Symbian countdown, which you can now see over at

It’s not like last week with an actual clock counting down; all we can see here is a static 108 and tweets that use the hashtag #Symbiancountdown

What does it all mean?

October 8? August 10? 108 units of time? 108 countries? Countdown for what? New device/Symbian^2/3? Who knows. On the horizon, something’s happening update wise with Nokia Messaging today. Also: new firmware of the N97’s supposed to be coming tomo, 28th right?

[update, scroll down, for some reason we’re now at 61 and we’ve got rainbows, unicorns and hello kitty :S]

Freeware: 7 free (flash) apps/games for your Nokia N97 – Stopwatch & Countdown/Pacman/Kitty Cannon/Helicopter Game /Spank The Monkey/Touch Type/Hardest Game in the World

August 26, 2009 1 comment

flash app

Here are some popular online flash files for your  N97/5800/5530- basically most S60-flash capable devices, although some will only work with Touch/keyboard/D-Pad (though an onscreen D-pad is available). All app menus are accessible via touch

It’s advisable to set flash quality to “low” for increased frame rate on the games and then set to full screen (open keyboard up in N97)

1. Stopwatch

The online stopwatch is my favourite stopwatch app. It’s simple and has a countdown with alarm too.

Input: Touch



MNBx000161MNBx0001622. Pacman

The classic game – complete with iconic sound effects such as the timeless “wakka wakka wakka” 🙂

Input: D-Pad



3. Kitty Cannon

[Kitten Cannon] Aim the cannon and launch the cat. Try to get the furthest distance by hitting bombs, explosives and trampolines. Avoid sharp spikes and cat-eating-plants. Good animation and good sound effects.

Warning: Contains cartoon violence to cats.

Input: D-Pad (or virtual D-Pad) – Spacebar to fire/continue




4. Touch Type

You will need a keyboard for this. You can either create your own text or select a pre-generated text from 15 different lesson sets. Type as fast and as accurately as you can. Get a key wrong and you won’t progress until you’ve pressed the correct one a hand appears suggesting what digit you should use but of course, not applicable on thumbboards.

Input: Keyboard





5. Helicopter Game

Another classic game. Navigate the helicopter by holding down on controls – has the chopper sounds.

Input: Touch.



6. Spank the Monkey

Drag the hand around and flick from right to left, making sure you let go of the hand to Spank the Monkey. The faster the better. Surprisingly fluid, with sound effects/music. Go beyond 200MPH and you get a little song to celebrate.

Input: Touch





7. The Hardest Game in the world.

A series of puzzles where you must move the red ball from one location to predefined positions.

Input: D-Pad or on screen D-Pad
