Nokia N9 Announced: Packs MeeGo, 8 Megapixel Camera, and Swiping

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything really worthwhile on this blog. Then again, it’s been a long time since there’s been any worthwhile Nokia news. And so, after a four-month hiatus, it’s time again to look at one of Nokia’s latest phones: the oft-rumored N9.


How-To: Play DOS Games On Your Nokia N97 [DOSBox]

Before there was Windows, there was DOS. A command-line interface with nothing but text, text, and more text. During the ’80s and ’90s, DOS was the OS of choice for gaming.

Nokia’s Booklet 3G: Possibly a New Standard for Netbooks

Well, the rumors were true: a Nokia netbook is coming. Called the Booklet 3G, it’s a super-sleek, super-thin Atom-powered portable PC. Even though it’s almost 2 years late to the game (typical Nokia modus operandi), I have to admit – I’m intrigued.

How-To: Hack Your Nokia N97 In 16 Steps [HelloOX2]

The latest version of HelloOX has been released, and it’s easier than ever to get unsigned software working on your N97. But let’s step back a bit: unsigned software is simply any kind of application that hasn’t gone through the Symbian Foundation’s rigorous signing process. Most freeware is unsigned, mainly due to the costs involved [...]


How-To: Change Your S60 Phone Key Mappings With VirtualKey

I recently discovered the S60 gem VirtualKey after going on the hunt for a good key remapping application. It’s easy to use, sufficiently powerful, and best of all, it actually runs on S60 Fifth Edition.
