Turn your iPhone or iPod's display to 3d using i3DG

By // No comments:

i3DG is a playful analog extension to an iPhone, converting its 2D display into a layered 3D view. Using the very old technique of placing a halfsilvered mirror at a 45-degree angle in front of an image, in a novel new context, the project serves as a timely critique of the popular memes of 3D displays and iPhones. As a gadget peripheral, i3DG can support a wide range of different applications, ranging from simple 3D videos and animations to accelerometerbased games.
The only downside though is for your to turn your iPhone's display to 3d, you have to clip on this big accessory infront of your device, and also, the image, movie or game should be split to 3 parts.

Flexible plastic processor

By // No comments:

Fabricating the 25-micrometer-thick chip starts with a substrate made from polyethylene naphthalate—a plastic. ”You could compare it to the material that you use to wrap your sandwiches,” says Genoe. ”It’s very flexible.” On top, the team placed a 25-nanometer-thick layer of gold, patterned to make the circuit. Above that sits an organic dielectric, followed by a second patterned gold layer, and finally the organic semiconductor, made of pentacene.
This breakthrough could lead to more thinner, cheaper, lighter and exciter mobile products in the future. There are numerous number of use cases from car dashboards, to heads up displays, environment monitors to mass consumer devices such as e-books and mobile phones.

Nokia C2-01 - latest affordable 3g enabled phone for P4,950

By // No comments:
Image taken from GSMarena.com
Nokia C2-01

Nokia C2-01 is a small but more feature pack compared to Nokia X2-01. The main difference between C2 and X2 is that the C2 has 3g connection (lets discuss this later) and X2 has only GPRS, and, X2 has a QWERTY keypad while C2 has the classic t9 keypad format.

Technical specs
240 x 320 px , 2" display
43mb storage, expandable up to 16gb using microsd cards
bluetooth
3.2mp, 2048 x 1536 pixels
Stereo FM with RDS
MP3 player
3.5mm stero jack

Just like any typical s40 phone from nokia, this phone is simple yet functional. It can basically call and text contacts. Capture 3.2mp images using the camera on its back (dont expect too much from this though). Play MP3 files or even stero FM. It also has bluetooth which can be used to transfer files conveniently or use other bluetooth pheriperals such as wireless headset/headphones easily. BUT, the main selling point of this device is the 3g connection. Don't be confused though, that 3g necessarily means fast. Although this device sports a 3g connectivity, it doesnt support HSPA/HSDPA which are able to download at 1mbps or more. The maximum download speed this phone can achieve is around 384kbps.

For the record, 384kbps bandwidth is more than enough to handle mobile sites but don't plan on using this phone as a modem and then tethering it to laptop or other computers. Since the max speed it can get is around 384kbps (and the market benchmark = 500kbps), there's no problem dealing with small pages such as m.facebook.com it will be painfully slow to visit website such as engadget and other slow loading sites not optimized for mobile consumption.

Intel disappointed with Nokia's strategy, still backs MeeGo

By // No comments:
While we are disappointed with Nokia’s decision, Intel is not blinking on MeeGo. We remain committed and welcome Nokia’s continued contribution to MeeGo open source.

Our strategy has always been to provide choice when it comes to operating systems, a strategy that includes Windows, Android, and MeeGo. This is not changing.

MeeGo is not just a phone OS, it supports multiple devices. And we’re seeing momentum across multiple segments – automotive systems, netbooks, tablets, set-top boxes and our Intel silicon will be in a phone that ships this year.

While Nokia , slightly not-abandoning MeeGo project, and with very little support for interested developers now for smartphone apps, Intel is still decided to go on with the project. Since MeeGo is not just a phone OS, even without nokia, the development will still continue as it (MeeGo) penetrates automotive system, netbooks, tablets, and set-top boxes.

Nokia still plans on releasing a MeeGo product later this year.

The features of s^3 that i wanted to see on a Windows Phone

By // No comments:
Of course this article won't include things that are already mentioned by Nokia-Microsoft such as ovi maps etc.

1. Optimized for multi-tasking
S^3 devices even with less powerful processor and small amount of memory, can handle multiple load of running application. This is one of the reason why I always buy symbian smartphones. I can't close my messenger, browser, music player playing in the background while i'm playing games just when someone texts me.

2. USB-on-the-go
This is a nifty feature, it saved me a lot of times such as:
a. Copying contents from other devices without needing a pc or laptop
b. Recharge my other phone
c. Recharge my bluetooth headset
d. It can even power USB fan

3. Memory card support
standard 16gb on board storage are not enough these days.

4. HDMI
Its HD era. This is a must.

5. Easy to customize
Create personal themes, re arrange home screen widgets

6. Powerful file manager
Easily manages file , supports also compressed zip files.

7. Multimedia extras such as image and video editor, web tv, flash (im not sure though if there is a flash support on windows phone 7 already), internet radio

8. copy-paste
Smartphones must have copy and paste (plus cut too)

9. Mass storage and bluetooth file transfers
Windows phone 7 does not support this yet, im not sure with bluetooth file transfer though. I need mass storage to just simply copy videos or pictures or use my phone as a backup of files.

10. FM transmitter
This is hardware specific though, is not a necessity for most people but me. I've been using this on my friend's car that doesn't support bluetooth music streaming. and also on cars that has bluetooth streaming support but is really hard to pair with bluetooth devices.

How about you, what features do you want to see?

What will happen to symbian? meego? Now that windows phone wil be there major platform

By // No comments:
I was able to inquire to a Nokia representative about the plan for S^3 and Meego. Read the answers below
At some unspecified point in time, Windows Phone will displace Symbian inside Nokia but we have 200 million existing Symbian users and target sales of approximately 150 million more. We do no know exactly when the last Symbian device will ship or be sold but we will continue to modernize the Symbian experience with a selective programme of enhancements and we will launch more devices on the Symbian platform.
Q: What will happen to S^3 UI update? Will Nokia still be providing updates for S^3 devices:
A: We will continue to leverage the value of Symbian as we build our Windows Phone business. We will continue to modernize the Symbian experience with a selective programme of enhancements and we will launch more devices on the Symbian platform.

Q: What will happen to MeeGo?
A: We will transition the MeeGo open source project to focus on exploration of future platform disruptions and next generation devices, platforms and user experiences. We expect to deliver a MeeGo-related device later this year but that device is best defined as an 'opportunity to learn'.

In other words, symbian will be killed, but in a distant future(I believe they still want to get the ROI for symbian). while MeeGo will continue as a experimental and innovation rich platform.

WTF! Nokia embraces Windows phone 7, symbian still continues on the next few years, meego to be open source

By // No comments:
And another reason why i'm telling you that Android won't work for Nokia... Read the press release below


  • Plans for a broad strategic partnership with Microsoft to build a new global mobile ecosystem; Windows Phone would serve as Nokia's primary smartphone platform.
  • Windows Phone as its primary smartphone platform, Nokia would help drive the future of the platform by leveraging its expertise on hardware optimization, software customization, language support and scale.
  • Nokia's application and content store would be integrated into Microsoft Marketplace
  • Symbian becomes a franchise platform, leveraging previous investments to harvest additional value
  • MeeGo becomes an open-source, mobile operating system project. MeeGo will place increased emphasis on longer-term market exploration of next-generation devices, platforms and user experiences.

New macbook pro shows up on best buy's inventory system

By // No comments:
The Macbook Pro line of products is getting a bit outdated since the last refresh was April 2010 (unibody). Apple is known to be refreshing its product every 1 year and the macbook pro will not be an exemption.

Image from 9to5mac.com
One great evidence that a new macbook pro is coming is due to the dummy SKU shown on Best Buy's inventory system. Another would be the depleting stock of the product (supplies are becoming short because the manufacturer is not shipping new products anymore). If you're going to launch a new set of product, its only logical to clear up your inventory from the old one to give space for the new one .

Nokia X2-01 review

By
We featured a promotional video before about Nokia X2-01.

Now GSMArena made an extensive review about this phone and according to them:
If you do, you’ll be getting an entry-level messenger which is probably worth every penny you paid. A decent screen and an awesome keyboard, social skills and messaging and a music package complete with a 3.5mm audio jack and a microSD card slot. For the right user, the Nokia X2-01 is the perfect package at the perfect price – about 75 euro.
The Nokia X2-01 is bottom of the food chain and proud of it. The right attitude will pay off.


SymTorrent - a bittorrent client for symbian OS, works also on S^3

By // No comments:
SymTorrent is the first and currently only BitTorrent client for Symbian OS. It supports downloading multiple torrents at the same time, is capable of both downloading and uploading and can save the status of your unfinished torrents, so you can resume the downloads after restarting the application. You can also check the status of each file inside a torrent along with several other statistics and properties during download. Torrents can be started from the browser, and selecting the files that are downloaded from multi file torrents is also supported.

I've tested this application on my nokia n8 and it works great. I even used a public wifi hotspot (its a bar by the way) and the speed is superb. You don't have to transfer large files from PC to your mobile phones because you can now download directly to your symbian phones.
