One man Barbershop vocal group daniscool99 has entered the N8Producers competition (To win a zero gravity flight experience!) with his own arrangement of “I’ll be seeing you”. Filmed four separate times with four separate singing parts, it all combines into a quartet Acapella.
The video certainly looks great, one of the clearest Dan has uploaded. I’m not sure what he used to record the audio though since there’s a big ass microphone there. Although it is possible to hook up microphones to the N8. Would have been nice just to demonstrate the stellar audio recording capabilities of the N8.
I wish more YouTube vlogger folk got an N8 and were made aware of this competition.
The parent company is a behemoth, allowing Samsung to produce their own displays, processors and memory at their own pace.
Apparently, the next 12 months is crucial. I don’t know if these figures are correct but Korea Times says Samsung plans on selling 11 Million smartphones in 2011 over their 2.5 million in 2010? I’m sure Samsung has sold more than that?
The next 12 months is possibly more important to Nokia than ever with the launch of its long awaited MeeGo powered handset and new Symbian UI. For quite a long time Nokia has given its competitors such an EASY ride with quite half hearted products (hello N97). Hardware wise, they could have produced something more than the bare minimum Symbian requires. 2011 is no such year for compromises, Nokia. Will we still see you as Number One come 2014? Maybe the world has already ended in 2012.
After a few months off the grid, I thought it best to offer a short post to show Jay, Andre and the rest of the MNB gang that I’m still around…
With my next upgrade coming up in the first few months of 2011, I’ve been pondering my options for my next handset. I’m keen to stick with a Nokia handset, and was hoping that by the time 18 months had passed after buying my N900 that something that truly excites me would come along. I’ll share some of my thinking with you…
Mobile documents is a great app that lets you see heavy email attachments with ease; large emails and large documents are no longer a mobile-web waiting issue.
- Mobile picture viewer handling 71MP images on the fly
- PDF viewer that supports pinch and zoom, FULL SCREEN view (why the one installed on N8 can’t go full screen, what a fail), and also text flow – with just the text in a single column.
- Share attachments from email without prior downloadand reupload. It is an instant send.
Note, you must sign in first with your Nokia account to try betalabs stuff.
The first two are very, very blurry but the third by Camb078 from blog-n8.fr is a little clearer.
You can get this from gameloft OR the easier route from Ovi Store. My bills have increased as it’s just too easy to purchase stuff from there :p. You WILL need to download this via WiFi as it is HUUGE! 168MB, much bigger than Avatar.
It’s priced at 3GBP or som how 3EUR. Apparently some of you are seeing these priced at 2.5CAD. Hmm…I’d like some price unity.
It supports multitouch controls and is in full 3D.
The 12MP Symbian Flagship, has apparently reached 4 million sales. I don’t know how accurate these figures are. The last time Nokia numbers were publicised, they were wrong (N900 selling only 100,000 when that was the figure in a few weeks – a geek “niche” device for tinkering, not for the masses which Nokia claims the N9 should be).
Anyway, from BloomBerg:
Dec. 29 (Bloomberg) — Nokia Oyj, the world’s biggest maker of mobile phones, may have delivered as many as 4 million of its N8 smartphones this quarter, Helsinki-based equity research company Inderes Oy said on its website today.
Inderes cited guidance given by chip makers, N8 search volumes on Internet search engines, additional recruitment at Nokia’s Finnish factory in Salo and media attention to the phone.
. What do you think of 4 million? I think that’s pretty decent response about a new Symbian handset.
Although we’ve heard about the N8 since early Jan of this year and officially late April, the N8 has only really been on sale from Mid October Read more…
Well relatively major. N97 and N97 mini maybe receiving integrated Yahoo! powered Ovi Chat as part of the PR3 and PR2 update.
Hurray, they have not been totally forgotten! Though with the big brother, some (like the team working on it!) might have prefered it to be a distant memory. I’d also like to see some major performance updates. I don’t know how much UI could be improved given the anorexic internals – it struggles as it is with it’s dry, bland navigation.
Qt integration as mentioned?
