Nokia CEO : Focusing on rural India

During his recent visit to India ,Nokia CEO Olli Pekka Kallasvuo, spoke about what plans they have for India.

Microfinance is going to be one of the pillars of Nokia's strategy. The idea is that while India may be adding 8-million subscribers a month, the country still has a huge untapped base thanks to the initial costs of buying a mobile phone.

Nokia : "I Love you too" in templates

Don't see it in my N95 but seems like this new "I love you too" template has been included in the new S40 phones. Now thats not much of an effort as its easy to create a new template ourself but don't recall creating a template ever, though I've used the existing ones some times.

Whatever, this new inclusion "I Love you too" will surely save some texting time ;)

Found this here.

S60 tips

Web Browser tip:
- If multiple windows are open in the browser the easiest way to close the open window is to press the 'C' key, instead of 'Options->Window->Close Window'.
- Do bookmark this link ( , it lists all google products available for mobiles. iGoogle is the latest addition
Gmail app fast startup:
If your gmail app is taking too much time to startup (mine took more than 2 mins) there is no way to tweak it up for fast startup the only thing that can be done is remove the app and install it again. This too will eventually slow down so again reinstall.

N95 : Wear & Tear

11 months back I got my N95. I handed it to my wife , in top notch condition , some 6 months back when my N958GB arrived. This is how the N95 looks now

The battery cover lid used to fall off , some how the clips which hold on the lid from the inside got loose which I pulled out a bit to fit it tight again. Out of the three clips one broke coz of my pulling but still the lid holds on and the battery does not fall of like it did. The slider is not as smooth as it used to be.

That was for the N95, but even though I take good care of my N958G somehow the silver coating on navigation pad has come off

Wish I'd given the N95 to my wife with a case/cover :(

Mobiles phones expose human habits

The title comes straight from BBC. Its not about good or bad habits but about human movements. Nothing to do with GPS but they've used data from the mobile base station whenever a SMS or a call is recorded.

Conclusion : "humans are creatures of habit, mostly visiting the same few spots time and time again"

More sensors :
"There are so many sensors that you could conceivably attach to a phone that you could do all kinds of monitoring activities with,...
For example, Nokia have put forward an idea to attach sensors to phones that could report back on air quality. The project would allow a large location-specific database to be built very quickly."
