MyNokiaBlog Weekly Post Roundup (Ep 16) Have you heard of the new Nokia N8?

May 2, 2010 2 comments

Just wanted to say thanks for dropping by on, reading our posts, retweeting our stories and even finding our posts good enough to track back to (thanks also to our sources!). This week was our busiest week ever, in terms of posting and traffic with over 60,000 views. One of our posts 8 Reasons to Love the Nokia N8 got over 4000 views on its first day and helped reach a new personal best that day.

Apart from Llaadd’s awesome C2 finding and a couple of N900 videos, everything this week was all about the Nokia N8. Starting with the initial drama for dear Eldar (with another midweek Eldar blip), then the official launch and somewhat of a huge turn around in opinion (considering the disappointment from the leaks/and scathing “previews), with much excitement for Nokia’s newest Nseries.

Without further ado here are this week’s post in case you missed anything 🙂

MyNokiaBlog Weekly Post Roundup (EP 15) MyNokiaBlog suspended on WordPress; X6, 5800 Firmware and Brain Party

April 25, 2010 2 comments

We got suspended from today. I don’t know why, (I hope it had nothing to do with the previous post cus I’m not too keen on that phone design!) haha. It’s not btw. WordPress support says it was a mistake.

Everything should be backup except the RSS might have gone a little screwy.

Thanks for the support over twitter – apologies for the drama too.

It might have been cooler had we been suspended for more than half an hour at least (as no one even noticed it had gone) but very pleased that wordpress staff managed to sort this out fairly quick.

Anyway, here are this week’s MyNokiaBlog postings from llaadd and I.

MyNokiaBlog Weekly Post Roundup (Ep 14). New C3, C6, E5; fMMS N900 walkthrough and Interview with Antti Kujala

April 18, 2010 1 comment

This week was surprisingly packed on MyNokiaBlog (especially considering the previous week). Llaadd brought us a whopping great walkthrough video of an updated fMMS for your Nokia N900 as well as news of a minor update for Ovi Maps.

Nokia’s virtual event kicked off the week, launching the QWERTY phones for the masses: Nokia C3, C6 and E5. Other Direct Nokia highlights include MyNokiaBlog’s interview with Nokia’s Antti Kujala.

On the MeeGo front, we saw that several big name companies are backing the Intel-Nokia project. Furthermore, we saw MeeGo running on a range of devices and saw a glimpse of MeeGo on Mobile (device and screenshots)

We also ran a poll this week, asking if you agreed with mobile analyst Tomi A Honen that Ovi Store would beat Apple App Store and Android Market. Whilst Nokia were winning for the first 100 votes, as it got picked up on there was sufficient backlash to push “No” as the winning answer (at about 60% as it stands).

MyNokiaBlog Weekly Post Roundup (ep 13)

April 11, 2010 Leave a comment

Unlucky Episode 13 is the least busiest week here at mynokiablog in a long time. More due to my crushing deadlines than actual lack of Nokia stuff going on. Man, need more organization/time machine. Things should start picking up soon again. Though my time table should actually get even worse now that its revision time for the major final exams, I should be able to keep more up to date on what’s happening Nokia/Maemo/Symbian Universe wise as I’ll substitute eating breaks for blogging. haha :p

Roll on Friday! And then June when it’s all over!

MyNokiaBlog Weekly Post Roundup (Ep 5) :#Symbiangives, Symbian^4 screenshots, and N900 love from Carphone Warehouse.

February 13, 2010 2 comments

Some of this week’s highlights:

Symbian Launched a promotion called #symbiangives, whereby simply tweeting with the hashtag #symbiangives could win you prizes. Symbian also released some Symbian^4 screenshots whereby we saw a new font change and a new “app switcher” button for Symbian.

The X6 got reviewed by Stuff Magazine and also saw a firmware upgrade to V12.0.091.

The N900 got a custom stand, was compared with SE’s Satio, was given much love and attention from Carphone Warehouse. Finally we looked at how to get custom bootup videos on the N900 as well as the exciting Push N900 project.

MyNokiaBlog Weekly Post Round Up (Ep 4): N97 V21 firmware update, Symbian fully open source and Golden Retrevo Award

February 6, 2010 2 comments

This first week of February on MyNokiaBlog, we bookend with the Conversations app on the N900, showing you how to get more IM account to the default messenger app as well as the update which allows for facebook chat.

But this week has really been all about Symbian, starting with the long awaited update for the N97. The best thing about the update for me was that it fixed my long term frustration with failed bootup. I’ve got my N97 back on track again!

The Symbian countdown finally finished revealling that Symbian was now finally open soure, 4 months ahead of schedule.

There were a couple of cool apps on show from Nokia Beta Labs: Diagnostics and custom dictionary as well as a notable update for the Ovi Store.

Finally, thanks to all your support, we have reached 1 million views, broke 170,000 views in January and also coincidentally, won a Golden Retrevo award in the Mobile Gadgets Category.  We aren’t really a traditional tech/nokia Blog of sorts, just blogging with whatever Nokia story comes of our interest. Thanks so much for reading the randomness on ^_^

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.
