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. And there were lots of great games. Flash-forward to today. Thanks to an open-source emulator called DOSBox, you can now run those oldies-but-goodies on [...]


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.

And with a Guitar Hero-ish [...]

Bug: “Curse of Silence” Hits Nokia S60 Phones

A new vulnerability is hitting certain Nokia phones: the “Curse of Silence” affects Nokia S60 devices running 2.6, 2.8, 3.0, or 3.1, and blocks your phone from receiving SMS and MMS messages. Unfortunately, you can’t solve the problem with a simple power cycle – according to the advisory, you need to perform a factory reset [...]

The Handy S60 Phone Shortcut List

This month’s official S60 newsletter included a nice little “tip of the month” column that highlighted the quickest way to add a carriage return (enter key basically) to your text messages/notes: just hit the 0 (zero) button three times. So simple, yet so effective.
