calibrate compass

Penny pinching !

I entirely agree with the whole article, and also always carry a spare battery with me and a Power Monkey mobile charger, just in case, for my N97. However for 18 I purchased a 1900mAh battery for...

My top ten

Well I have a few from the list, but it's obviously a somewhat subjective subject as it's dependent on the user. I don't use Skype a lot except on PC or may try it abroad if I can find wifi, but as a...

Choice !

I entirely agree that people should have choice, and not everyone uses their phone the same way, my personal preference is to have both and I'm happy to accept the 'bulk' in fact I'm hoping my next...

And the solution to the debate is a hybrid phone so you can have the best of both worlds ! My N97 is obviously not the best example , but the form factor is , I think , perfect . So I really hope a 4...

Great read as usual Mr L, my 'mature' phones all seem to follow the same path, I have contact handsets (which I'm considering changing after 10yrs and maybe going 'unlocked' , but that's another...

apple response.

I am no way an Apple fan, but I honestly thought the response was extremely good, from a customer service point of view I really can't see what else they could have done. As an N97 user I wish Nokia...

Much faster

I've found it much much faster than the current Opera mobile, and not really much hungrier with RAM usage, also can set it as default browser on N97, it doesn't work on all apps, but does open email...

Nokia follows Waze ?

Good addition, and very similar to the way Waze updates there data, as long as people use it , could bring great improvements :)

Whatever you're 'used to'

As someone who has been a full time resistive screen user for over 12 months, I think the main point is familiarity !! I'm a bit of a phone geek (surprise surprise) and so, often friends will ask...

Anti Touchscreen

I'd been anti touch screen ever since I first saw one and so put off trying one untill I found the N97 , in which I saw the safety net of the qwerty keyboard (which I'm using now) so N97 problems and...

Symbian N series

Don't know if it's only me, but the statement seems to say that there WILL be Nseries running Symbian in the future, that Symbian^4 will be used, and as no-one has seen it yet it can hardly be argued...

Interesting article as ever, and sadly as an N97 user I'm fully aware of the need for both a bigger C memory and much much more RAM :( Really hope Nokia start 'over engineering' there handsets so...

C Robber

Find it a slight improvement, but why oh why do Nokia insist on everything loading on C something which is very lacking on my N97. I have dozens of apps installed on E which work as fast and often...

Battery Life.

Completely agree steve, I've had to charge my N97 on a daily basis from new, and several times it's died mid-afternoon, so I bought a 1900mAh battery which gave me a bit more time and juice, but...
