i sold it to my brother to help him more than anything,he had a limited budget so i decided to help him.i sold it to him for a good price.i wanted to try new things at the same time and if i don't find something i like well I'm buying a new n82.I fell in love with the touch screen of the lg vu! thats why i wanna buy another touch screen.
i know nokia has one in Europe and Asia,the date of release in north America is still pending!if it was available i would buy it for sure!

OK I see,I had a a couple of touch screen phone's. I loved it at first,but got tired of it.  :P
The Nokia touch screen joint is nothing special,it's a budget model.

Sony Ericsson predict their handsets to sport 20 MP cameras,
Full HD video recording, and XGA displays in four years

http://www.mobile-review.com/fullnews/main/index_eng.shtml


Ericsson, one half that forms the collective unit Sony Ericsson, predict huge things for their handsets in four years time. Ericsson is going on record, in saying that, in 2012, the following features will be seen in Sony Ericsson's mobile phones:

12-20 MP cameras
Full HD (1920 x 1080) video recording
XGA (1024 x 768 pixels) dispays
Up to 100 Mbps LTE connectivity
Processors up to 1 GHz
 

At the rate technology moves, all of this theoretically possible, to be seen if all of these features are implemented into Sony Ericsson phones in four years time. Overkill as some of it may seem, a phone which sports all of these features will have its fans for sure.

So me and my buddy switched phones...i used his iphone 3g...and he used my HTC diamond


After the week..he wanted my diamond..and I wanted my diamond back

Iphone is dope..but its not really that cool. You can do so much more with a Windows Mobile device..and the Touchflo 3d on the Diamond just kills it.

Diamond > Iphone...actually..it alll comes down to preference and what you want to do with your phone.

Fake iPhone Flip doesn’t look that bad
http://www.intomobile.com/2008/11/27/fake-iphone-flip-doesnt-look-that-bad.html

We’ve seen quite a few iPhone clones in the past. However, today we’re presenting you with “something completely different.” It’s the iPhone Flip or at least the Chinese unofficial version. As you can see from the image above, the device doesn’t look that bad at all. Sure some details could be done better and if Apple ever decides to go for the clamshell phone, we’re sure they’ll make it look stunning — but the overall design of this ripoff is quite appealing. This is, of course, not to say you should get one of these. We’re talking about serious copyright infringements here, something we at IntoMobile NEVER support.

As for the specs, the clamshell sports a VGA camera, 2.6-inch QVGA (240×320 pixels) screen, media player and some games. It measures 105×53x17 mm, and weighs roughly 110 grams. The best thing is the price - $100, but again, we’re not saying you should buy it. The quality just isn’t there…

Motorola MOTOZINE ZN5
http://www.motorola.com/motoinfo/product/details.jsp?globalObjectId=242


MOTOZINE ZN5
is the first mobile phone to combine Motorola’s ModeShift Technology and KODAK Imaging Technology redefining the quality,
convenience and connectivity of mobile imaging devices.

Redefining Mobile Imaging
Simply slide the lens cover open to illuminate ModeShift Technology, transforming the full-featured mobile phone into an ultra-fast 5 megapixel camera,
complete with auto-focus, low-light optimization, and a bright Xenon flash.
ZINETM ZN5 is the only mobile phone to have KODAK Imaging Technology that can be instantly combined with
KODAK PERFECT TOUCH Technology for brighter, more vivid pictures on the spot which look noticeably better than pictures created without the technology.
Users can take advantage of multiple capture modes, including panorama,
which automatically stitches together continuous shots taken on the horizon line into a single, extended image1.

Snap and Share – Instantly!
No other phone from Motorola puts image capture first,
with a high-resolution landscape screen and one of the fastest click-to-click times available for 5 megapixel camera phones.

Auto-focus locks in less than one second and there are no delays when taking one photo to the next.
With one touch, users can view all their photos right from the home screen; no menus, no searching.
ZN5 is optimized to work with KODAK EASYSHARE Software and provide one-touch access to KODAK Gallery1
or other Web sharing sites2, by using ShoZu1 to easily move pictures off the device, allowing consumers to print, share and enjoy their photos whenever they want.  Share images with Edge or Wi-Fi connectivity 1,3 via Web sites directly from the device2
and display instant slideshows on your TV4 to friends and family with just one cable.
Printing photos via Bluetooth® Wireless Technology5 is easy with KODAK Picture Kiosks and KODAK All-in-One Printers.

Tell us All About it
In phone mode, ZN5 features Motorola’s proprietary CrystalTalkTM Technology to help users hear and be heard, even in noisy environments.
Stereo Bluetooth wireless technology enables pairing with compatible Bluetooth-enabled accessories,
such as Motorola’s stereo Bluetooth-enabled headsets as well as Bluetooth-enabled KODAK All-In-One inkjet printers5.

Nokia N97 - Nseries with touch and QWERTY
Published by Rafe Blandford at 8:17 UTC, December 2nd 2008
http://www.allaboutsymbian.com/news/item/8590_Nokia_N97-Nseries_with_QWERTY_.php

Nokia today announced the launch of  the Nokia N97. It is the first touch-enabled Nseries device and has a horizontal tilt-slide form factor. It transforms from a touch slate to a landscape QWERTY device. The device, which has an Internet and entertainment focus, runs on S60 5th Edition, has a customisable, widget-based, home screen and full support for Ovi services.

It features a 3.5 inch (360 x 640 resolution) touchscreen with haptic feedback, 5 megapixel camera (with Carl Zeiss optics and dual LED flash), A-GPS and compass sensors, comprehensive connectivity options (WiFi, tri-band HSDPA, Bluetooth and USB), and 32GB of internal flash memory. Read on for more.


The N97 is the most feature packed Nseries device to date and, by adding touch, it moves Nokia's high end Nseries into direct competition with touch devices such as the Samsung Omnia, LG Renoir, Apple iPhone and G1 Android Phone.

Here are first few hand-ons impressions: In the hand the N97 feels pleasingly solid, with an extremely impressive slide mechanism - it is obvious a lot of testing has gone into the hinge mechanism. In slide closed mode it is equally solid, with no give. The keyboard, while limited by design constraints, feels good, though as ever it's difficult to come to any final conclusions with prototypes. Subjectively, the 'feel' and the design of the handset screams high end with materials that can not be fully appreciated in pictures (it has that caress-ability x-factor).



It is a relatively large device, especially length-wise, but that's inevitable given the size of the screen and the inclusion of a QWERTY keyboard. There's the usual plethora of hardware features, including sensors (accelerometer, compass sensors and proximity sensors), integrated A-GPS, and connectivity options (tri-band 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth and USB). The large screen is a definite highlight - its widescreen 16:9 resolution is ideal for watching videos, but also works well for browsing the Internet. The touch screen is very sensitive, and there have been further refinements to the home screen to enable easier finger touch usage (the larger physical screen also helps with this). The UI can also be driven from the keypad using the D-pad on the left hand side of the keyboard, together with the on-screen softkeys and home key.

S60 5th Edition has been updated to Nseries specifications for the N97. Extras include UPnP, Internet Radio and Nokia Photos applications and we can expect to see a lot more in this area before the phone is released.

We'll report in greater detail in due course.

Runs S60 5th Edition. You can read more about S60 5th Edition in our Nokia 5800 preview. However, the N97 will have the Nseries version of S60, which means there will be a number of extra applications including Internet Radio, FM transmitter, Home media (UPnP) and Photos.
 
The home screen can be personalised with Internet-aware widgets (based on WRT technology). Examples included in the press photos include weather forecasts, social networking (Facebook, Friendster, My Space) status summaries, and media collections. There are also indicators for time, profiles, email, application shortcuts and so on.
 
Text input is via on screen keyboard (full screen QWERTY, pop-up QWERTY and alphanumeric), as is standard on S60 5th Edition, or handwriting recognition or via the QWERTY keyboard.
 
Fully compatible with Ovi services including Maps, Music, Share and Games. Nokia Music store can be accessed from the device (touch optimised version) or from Nokia Music for the PC (an iTunes -Windows application). Nokia Maps now supports high resolution satellite imagery, 3D buildings (selected buildings) and richer map meta data. Pedestrian route finding and turn by turn, voice guided car navigation, are available as premium services.

Internet focus with WebKit based browser, comprehensive RSS feed support and runtime technologies including Flash, WRT (widget).

Introduces the social location (So-Lo) concept; the N97 has software that allows you to automatically update and share your location with friends and popular social networks.
 
'N-Gage compatible' device, which indicates that the N-Gage platform will be touch enabled by the release date of the N97.

The devices being demoed at Nokia World are running an early version of the software. In the six months leading up to the release date it is likely to evolve considerably.

Hardware:
Physical dimensions: 117.2 x 55.3 x 15.9 mm (18.25 mm at camera area), and weighs approximately 150g.
 
Tilt form factor with horizontal slide to reveal full QWERTY keyboard. The upper half of the device slides away from the bottom half and moves upwards in a diagonal direction. The slide is impressively smooth and when closed feels very solid in the hand (so much so its not immediately apparent it is a horizontal slide device).   
 
There are three keys on the front of the device: send and end keys and a home/menu key. On the left side of the device there is a slider lock and a microUSB port, on the top of the device is the power and 3.5mm audio jack and on the right hand side are the volume keys and the camera capture key.
 
3.5 inch, 360 x 640 (nHD) resolution resistive touch TFT screen with 16 million colours. The device can be driven using finger touch or stylus, or from the QWERTY keyboard.
 
Haptic feedback for screen touches. This is provided via general vibra feedback, as on the Nokia 5800.
 
5 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics and dual LED flash. The camera is covered by a sliding lens cover similar to that found on the N85 and N79.

The camera is also used to record videos at VGA at 30 frames per seconds, but I've seen a demo of it recording and playing video back in a 16:9 resolution mode (also as on the 5800). The usual Share online application is present for uploading images and video to online services such as Flickr and Share on Ovi (available services likely to be expanded before launch).
 
Integrated A-GPS and compass sensor (magnetometer) means that the N97 'intuitively knows where it is' and this is used by Nokia Maps, and for social location; also embeds location information into images and video.
 
3.5 mm audio jack (also used for TV-Out) and built in stereo speakers. Music playback time of one and half days (36 hours). There's also an FM radio and FM transmitter.
 
microUSB jack (USB 2.0 HiSpeed) and supports charging over USB
 
32GB or 64GB of internal flash memory
 
microSD card slot with support for SDHC cards up to 16GB in size (giving total potential memory of 80 GB)

 
WiFi, 3.5G (tri-band HSDPA - 900, 1900 and 2100 Mhz), quad-band GSM and Bluetooth connectivity (various profiles including HID, SAP, A2DP and AVRCP).
 
1500 mAh battery (BP-4L - the same monster as that used in the E71, E90, 6650 and N800).
 
There is no stylus built into the phone, but one will be included in the box.
 
The Nokia N97 is expected to ship in the first half of 2009 (presumably in June) with an estimated price of 550 Euro before taxes and subsidies.




The N97 (117.2 x 55.3 x 15.9 mm) is larger than the 5800 (111 x 51.7 x 15.5 mm). Compared to the iPhone (112 x 56.9 x 12.5 mm) is a little taller, but slightly mm narrower. Quite impressive given the incluion of a QWERTY keyboard. N78 also shown.

Press release extract:

Nokia today unveiled the Nokia N97, the world’s most advanced mobile computer, which will transform the way people connect to the Internet and to each other. Designed for the needs of Internet-savvy consumers, the Nokia N97 combines a large 3.5” touch display with a full QWERTY keyboard, providing an ‘always open’ window to favorite social networking sites and Internet destinations. Nokia’s flagship Nseries device introduces leading technology – including multiple sensors, memory, processing power and connection speeds – for people to create a personal Internet and share their ‘social location.’

“From the desktop to the laptop and now to your pocket, the Nokia N97 is the most powerful, multi-sensory mobile computer in existence,” said Jonas Geust, Vice President, heading Nokia Nseries. “Together with the Ovi services announced today, the Nokia N97 mobile computer adjusts to the world around us, helping stay connected to the people and things that matter most. With the Nokia N97, Nseries leads the charge in helping to transform the Internet into your Internet”.

Why phones get cancelled?
http://www.mobile-review.com/articles/2008/cancel-phone-en.shtml

There are dozens of spy photos of various phones that can make your mouth water floating around the Web - astonishingly beautiful, with very robust feature packs and all-around likable they seem to have what it takes to become your next flame. But for some obscure and idiotic reasons (they must have gone crazy!) phone makers cancel them, occasionally at the very last moment. In this write-up we'll tell you why these seemingly illogical decisions aren't always unfounded and why vendors are less short-sighted and careless than they may seem from time to time.

Land Rover Contracts with Sonim to Make Branded Phones
http://www.phonescoop.com/news/item.php?n=3681


Land Rover and Sonim Technologies have entered into an agreement to develop and launch co-branded mobile phones.
A total of three phones are already in the works,
with two -- the Land Rover S1 (pictured) and Land Rover S2 G4 -- slated for launches in the first half of 2009, and the third following later in the year.
The phones will be rugged, submersible, and certified to withstand salt, fog, humidity, transport and thermal shock
and a 1.6-meter drop to concrete from any angle.
Land Rover and Sonim are working with designer Scott Wilson to create the products, which will use GSM-based radio technology.

Nokia unveils three new accessories
http://www.intomobile.com/2008/12/03/nokia-unveils-three-new-accessories.html


Finally, it’s not just the uber-cool N97 Nokia has unveiled at their Nokia World. They also went out with three brand new accessories:
Nokia Home Music is a music device for home which brings internet radio, podcasts, and FM radio at the touch of a button.
It can connect to mobile phone, PC or a compatible digital music player.
Specs wise, there’s WiFi radio on board, and an array of connectors
— including standard 3.5mm headphone jack, 3.5mm line-in, USB, Ethernet, SPDIF Optical output, RCA line-out.

Nokia Internet Stick CS-10 - the Finnish giant’s latest HSPA modem that supports up to 7.2mbps in downlink and up to 2.0mbps in uplink speeds.

Finally, Nokia Extra Power DC-11 is an external battery for those that need an extra juice from time to time.
It features two separate charging connectors, allowing simultaneous charging of up to two devices via micro USB and/or Nokia’s 2mm charging interface.

And that’s about it. I like that Home Music system, especially. I could easily envision it sitting at the table in my room. Until next time, I’ll keep hating the wires…

a good way to make better use of your phone is to overclock the processor. my blackjack II is overclocked to 275 mhz and makes it run like a fuckin champ  8)
