OnMobile ICON

I work for OnMobile Global Ltd.
Yesterday I was awarded OnMobile ICON award :D

Cheers again. Feels gr8.

Post upgrade : v20.0.015

My N95 rebooted twice after upgrading v20.0.15.
Cause 1: I just unplugged my headphone while listening to radio and tada reboot.
Cause 2: Was trying if the headset for 5310 works for the N95 , wanted to check if I can change radio with that button. I put the headphone jack and tada reboot.

Tried several times to reproduce the thing but worked fine then.

Anyone faced the same issue?

But indeed the bootup is zappy, stability improved, keypress bug not encountered yet, snapping photos is faster, n-gage looks good, moving around in gallery is faster, camera application starts faster, button for last snap taken (next to cam) opens up the gallery faster, search is on the active screen now but don't know if I will ever use it.

I was outside Mumbai and GPRS wasn't working, I started the Maps application for the first time after upgrade. Trying to exit the app just hung the phone. Needed to restart. This happened twice. Back to Mumbai and with GPRS works fine.

Also talks about technologies like Blue-Ray disk, gps and Flash.

New N95 firmware : Coming Soon

Finally this post on Symbian-Freak shows that a new firmware for the N95 is on its way. I straight away went to the RDA site to reserve my time for that particular N95 (pic alongside). But will have to wait as my reservation is after 6 hrs from now :(

So good news for all N95 owners. Vaibhav Sharma and Steve, this upgrade is really worth waiting for with all your features like demand paging and RAM optimization seem to be taken care of :D
Its time to plug the N95 everyday to the NokiaSw Updater for a check.

Have you made a difference at your workplace with some witty activity. Then post your story here and stand a chance to win the latest E51.

(only for APAC that too only Australia,Thailand and Singapore listed as entrants)

E50 : What a catalog

I've been using the E50 for a couple of days and must say that the 'Catalogs' application seemed to be really impressing. Never saw so many applications for download on the N95 catalog. Here's what the catalog tree on the E50 looks like:

Nokia Extras:
Complementary Applications
--Golf pro Contest
--Mobile Magnifier lite

--Blackberry Connect 2.1
--Mail for Exchange

--Mobile Search

Office tools
--Active Notes

Trial Applications
--Wayfinder Navigator 6

--Oxford Dictionary
--Font Magnifier
--Phone screen

-Live Smarter
--S60 Themes
--Smart guard
--Mobile search
--SMS Spam manager

-Connect Smarter

--Motion Dice box
--Golf Pro Contest

Mostly J2ME games here

Ringtones , wallpapers etc.. (all mobile content)

Hungama mobile
Again Mobile content

Business news/Market etc...

This is all paid stuff but nice applications - VnC+ Virtual Network Computing for Mobiles , OfficeSite S60 4 3rd Ed, Expenses 1.1 , Papyrus , Animated SMS , ZOOM+ , DIY Photo Themes, etc....

This is the first catalog I've really liked.
Although I always go for free stuff, something like iRemote is worth buying. I am now using iRemote to control my TV, its a trial version now but I think I will buy it. I impressed my in-laws yesterday when their car's audio players remote wasn't working and the iRemote came in handy ;). I've spent a lot buying a new TV remote every 6-9 months, dunno why I always drop my remote and never my mobile.

Psiloc iRemote on my E50

During my 2nd Edition days with the 6630, I always wanted to use the iRemote with my TV. But 6630 doesn't have an infrared port :(
I tested the iRemote for the 3rd Edition on the E50 , and it works just fine.
The setup is pretty simple check it out here , download it here.

N95-1 users , guinea pigs?

There's an interesting post on ForumNokia, it says that N95-1 users have been used as guinea pigs and after they reported all the features needed in this phone in which hey have put their hard earned salaries Nokia came out with N95-2.
Checked out the petition url and was surprised to see 200+ people already signed it. But it seems that the guy is right in a way, N95 does come close to what low-end laptops come now a days. There are people who would just buy another phone and there are people who must have waited and saved their salaries to get their dream phone, the N95.
I am one of the earlier people who got the N95 , I am with version 12 now and I surely know that with v13 the keypress bug will be gone and there will be lots of improvements. But what about that wobbly slider. A friend of mine who just bought the N95 does not have it, in fact he bought it even cheaper. I really hate the wobbly slider, if I would've dropped my phone and had the slider gone wobbly I wouldn't have minded it much. But it came that way. I really really hate it. I also wish the battery was better.
I think I should sign the petition too.

Here's the link.
