This sounds promising. I hope it's true. That could mean that from now on, phones are less likely to be "abandoned", like the Nokia N93 was (Nokia stopped releasing new firmware versions of it 2...

The software in the N93 was S60, which is now being made open source. Neither of us know if this includes older versions (such as that used by the N93) or just the current versions.



Yes, that...

You're flat out wrong, I'm afraid. Open source means that everybody has access to the code, and are able to modify it. Let's take the case of Linux as an example of an open source product. If Linux...

Then I shall provide you with a reason: The HIP factor.

Andriod is seen as hip. Symbian is not. Take a look at what the hip factor did for the iPhone despite its initial lack of basic smartphone...

Interesting, but probably not as "open" as you might think.

This is very interesting - but perhaps not as interesting as one might think.

If Symbian really would go "completely" open source, then that would mean that I'd be able to create a new firmware...

The part about Nokia not allowin Python apps in Ovi Store is a bit misleadingly phrased here. What Nokia has said is that they won't initially support Python, but they want our input on the matter....

This is not just a problem with games on S60, it's a problem with 3rd party applications on S60 in general.

I was a PalmOS (PDA) user from 1998 to 2005. Even in 1998, there were thousands and...

Differences between 5800 and N97?

I have preordered a N97, but now my old N93 is literally falling apart. I need a replacement now. I either wait for the N97 to become available and use my old Nokia 6310i in the meantime, or I could...

Nokia preparing to drop N-gage support for N93 / N93i / N73?

The Devices page on n-gage.com still lists support for N93, N93i and N73 as "coming soon", but there is now also this little blurb at the bottom of the page:

NOTE: Nokia reserves the right to...

Yes, by now it's obvious that they haven't released N-Gage support for the N93 (and I don't think they ever will). But why on earth did Nokia send me these SMSes out of the blue like that?

N-Gage released for N93?

I just received an SMS to my N93. The SMS is from "Nokia", and reads:

"Are you ready to play? Click on the link in the next message to check out N-Gage. To opt out of future SMS messages please...

It means that the phone is 15.9 mm thick, except for the (protruding) area around the camera lens, where the phone is 18.25 mm thick.

The camera is also used to record videos at VGA at 30 frames per seconds

That's exactly what the N93 does. So how does my old N93 beat the N97 on video capture? Are you...

No dedicated number keys on the keyboard. That's too bad. But you can't have everything. I'm glad I cancelled my N96 preorder - this is the phone I want.

However, Nokia did promise that the...

The way I understand it, you have to pay extra for "Comes with Music" (around 100). It's not included in the price of the phone. So, if you don't want it, don't buy it.

Touch screen phone with QWERTY slider?

I wonder if Nokia will eventually release a touchscreen phone similar to the 5800 (what a stupid generic name), but with a QWERTY slider like the E75? That would be my ideal phone, I think. The large...

Your idea is not completely without merit, but do you realise how small the playing area would be? It would be about 30% of the screen.
