Bah, Patrick Troughton was an annoying little man next to Jon Pertwee. So was Tom Baker, come to that.

In Australia it launched at $750 (which is about 449 pounds, give or take) and is now at $500 from online stores, $450 if you go to an eBay store. And its contract price has more than halved.

I got my N95 when they were dumping stock because the 8GB was in, and so it was cheaper. I'm still using it, and hardware problems are restricted to not being able to read the keyboard any more (I...

That is probably the single most sensible article ever written about mobile device interfaces.

The "single/double tap" problem is so baffling that when I heard about S^3 being "single tap...

This thread really does illustrate that there is no such thing as a single solution to please everyone.

I'll be the first to say that Nokia makes too many different models, but at least you get...

What disappoints me most about mobile phone manufacturers is that they're so unimaginative and unadventurous. The last really interesting innovation in design was the dual slider. Everything else has...

The main advantage touch-screen phones have is, of course, that they're more fun to play with.

Not recognising this fun factor is clearly why Nokia are being punished in the uninformed public...

It's also very handy to be one step back off the bleeding edge :)

The Debian Linux distribution has "unstable" and "testing" repositories for exactly that reason, and they both come with "if they...

That right there is a reason Symbian is losing market share to iPhone and Android which, let's face it, is chasing iPhone not Symbian.

Symbian may be a great power-user platform if you know how...

Sadly, the reason I am progressively less and less likely to buy Nokia next is clearly represented by the way their devices are grape-shot either side of the line, and the yet-to-be-launched N8 is...

One slight performance problem, here.

The big reason S60 Search sits unloved on my home screen is that on my N95-1 it's infuriatingly slow and clunky. I could see its potential as soon as I had the patience to actually work out what it...

As these are the two phones I'm struggling to decide between, I'm very, very grateful you did this, Steve.

It didn't help much, however, giving an almost dead heat :P

I'm also wondering if the...

There would be a lot of background noise for the phone to contend with! ^_^

Of course, the biggest problem with using a capacitive screen with gloves is that GPS becomes set-and-cope-with.

Hey, if this is really pressure sensitive, that does that mean we'll be able to go back to using waterproof covers, gloves, pens, paper-clips, cold fingers, dry fingers and nice, narrow, stylii?

Okay, update: Apparently, it's not available for N95, presumably therefore FP1.

It would be helpful if Ovi Store returned "Content was found that is not compatible with your device".

Entertainingly, when I went into the Store client on my N95-1 and searched for "polarbit" I got a grand total of no results. Zero. Nada. Zip. Zilch. Theyre not in the first screen of Recommended or...
