Angry Birds for Symbian^3 Hits The Ovi Store!

Sep 29, 2010

Angry Birds was first available for the Nokia N900, but later, as Nokia pushed Qt forward, Angry Birds was ported to Symbian^3. These are really great news for Nokia, not only because more Nokia users can now enjoy one of the best mobile games ever, but because Qt is really encouraging developers to create apps since they can serve a wide range of platforms with...

New Ovi Maps 3.06 Brings Tons Of Improvements

Sep 14, 2010

Today at Nokia World we had a Q&A session with Pino from the Ovi Blog. He showed us the new Ovi Maps 3.06 running on his black Nokia N8. The v3.06 is still a beta, but it brings an impressive amount of improvements to Ovi Maps. Among my favorite ones is the way in which now the search function works; it is more powerful and complete. The main new feature,...

Confirmed! N8 Will Come With New, Redesigned Ovi Store

Aug 5, 2010

Update: seems like the new Ovi Store is still coded in WRT, lets see how that will work… Well, at least it passed as a Qt app for a couple of days! I knew the Ovi Store was a fail as soon as I opened it. A catalog, which is basically what Ovi Store is, that is *really* annoying to browse.

Foursquare Client For Touch Nokia Devices Enters Beta

Aug 4, 2010

I personally don’t use Foursquare, but many of the people I follow on Twitter are constantly checking-in and earning badges in different places. Seems fun, but not my type of thing.

Nokia N8-01 Leaks: Similar N8 But With QWERTY and Less MPs

Jun 25, 2010

If you are following me on Twitter you have probably heard about the Nokia N8-01, which is not the same N8 we all know.

I imagined that it was the pic we all saw some months ago, here it...
