I think at least some of the speed issue in the music player is software-related, not hardware-related. I say this because I recently upgraded my trusty 5800 to the latest v50 firmware which I think...

Well, I guess that's what I mean by 'well-written'. J2ME has supported pointer events from the start. So a competent programmer would write code which catered for both touch and non-touch devices...

I have a 5800 and don't bother with the in-built iPlayer for the reason you describe. Instead, I download onto my PC or Linux netbook using iplayer-dl (Google for it) to save a local copy without...

Is this from FlyingBird software? If so, there's a version for S60 5th edition. It crashes my 5800 but your mileage may vary. Alternatively there's my own personal finance software JabpLite which...

That's what I thought, which means that there's some (older) touchscreen-enabled software that will be hard to use on this device - compared to the N97 or 5800. Won't be a problem for most people,...

SS50 is definitely not H264, Steve, as you can see from the attached jpgs. It's regular MPEG-4. That's why the P1i and W960 play it just fine.

We've had several discussions about encoding with the H264 codec, how H263 just doesn't give the same quality etc. Several UIQ users asked Steve to reconsider, since UIQ phones (which are Symbian...
