MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan based Nokia N9 announced
|At the CommunicAsia 2011 event today, Nokia has announced the new Nokia N9 based on MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan. Not just beautifully designed, the N9 also offers a wide range of powerful and advanced features. |
It all comes together beautifully with the scratch-resistant glass merging perfectly into the smooth one-piece body. And there's innovation in every detail. The vivid AMOLED display brings everything to life right on the surface, plus the curved glass makes it easy to swipe the touch screen as you move between apps.
It all comes down to a simple swipe. This one idea makes everything feel effortless and completely natural as you use your phone. There are no back or home keys – just a continuous flow as you move from app to app. Swipe any edge of the screen to go home, then move easily between three home views.
Three views with everything you need. Start something new in the familiar Applications view, or go to the Open applications view to jump from one live app to another – great for picking up where you left off. The Events view is the place to see what’s happening right now in your world. Live Facebook updates and Tweets, real-time emails and other notifications, all in one place.
Get to where you want to go with free walk and drive navigation and turn-by-turn voice guidance. Find the best of everything in your city, including cafes, shops, concerts, hotels and more, with public transportation line views for over 80 cities worldwide. As maps for your region are preloaded, you can get started right away and save on data costs. Plus the dedicated Drive app is optimised for in-car use with simple touch controls.
Nokia N9 features a fast mobile web browser, so pages load on your screen in no time. And with HTML5 support you get the best of the web including rich apps and fast video playback. Everything is quick and highly responsive, plus you can keep multiple pages open at the same time and move easily between them.
A photo opportunity can come and go at any moment. Use the 8 MP camera with Carl Zeiss optics to take a great shot, or start filming in stunning high definition. The wide-angle lens means you get more friends in the picture – just tap to focus and shoot. Instantly share online for everyone to enjoy, or touch another NFC-enabled phone to share with someone close by.
Nokia N9 comes with quality must-have apps straight out of the box, including Skype, Facebook, Twitter, Accuweather and AP Mobile. You also get Angry Birds Magic to keep you entertained for hours, plus there are other essential apps and games at Ovi Store.

Forum Nokia becomes Nokia Developer
|Forum Nokia has been renamed to Nokia Developer together with a new website design.|
Quote from the announcement: "While this website might look a bit different now, we think you will agree we have made it simpler to understand. Whether you plan to develop and deploy mobile apps using Qt, Web or Java – or if you plan to begin crafting apps for Nokia with Windows Phone – you will notice that it is easy for you to reach any of the mobile development-related resources that you need to do your work quickly and efficiently. As you will see, this is part of an overall movement by Nokia to offer our global developer community a single point of service to design, develop and distribute mobile apps and content to consumers using the latest Nokia phones worldwide.
You will find a new developer library, as well as more space for timely news and updates that are important to you; and you will see improvements coming soon to the events and training section of this site, too." Read more...

T7-00 and 702T - two Symbian ^3 phones for China
|Nokia China has launched two Symbian &3 based phones for the Chinese market: the T7-00 and 702T.|
The T7-00 is very similar to the N8, with the most apparent difference being a camera 'downgraded' to 8 Megapixel EDOF one. On the other hand, it features a screen 'upgraded' to Clear Black. It has aluminium casing, 3.5" screen, and integrated battery, just like the N8. Specific for the Chinese market is an additional text input method, handwriting recognition.
The 702T is a Chinese version of the new E6 (with QWERTY keyboard and 2.46" VGA resolution touch screen, stainless steel body and hardened glass on the display), also featuring an 8 megapixel EDoF camera with dual-LED flash and HD 720p video recording. Both devices are based on Symbian Anna and support TD-SCDMA (Chinese 3G variant).
Both devices will be available in Q3 on China Mobile. More information (in Chinese).
Pinch - social app with messenger and location based services
|Pinch is meant to combine messenger and location based services. Smartphone users wil be able to interact with friends using animations, pictures, emoticons and notifications. Pinch will also enable users to send data messages across platforms (iPhone, iPod Touch, Android, BlackBerry, J2ME devices and Symbian) without incurring any SMS/MMS charges. Further, the app supports animation across platforms and offers over 475 emoticons.|
Nokia Play To - multimedia playback over DLNA
|Nokia Play To lets you show photos and videos taken with your mobile to your friends wirelessly on your TV. Or you can listen to your favourite music stored on your mobile with your home audio system. Just launch Play To, select the device and media you want to play. No configuration is needed once WLAN is on and all devices are connected to the same network. A network with WLAN access is needed as well as a DLNA capable playing device (e.g. TV, A/V amplifier, Blu-ray player or PS3 game console). All devices including mobile must be connected to the same network.|
