@Biggles - as I said, it's no more or less dangerous. If you hack your phone to install unsigned apps then you're explicitly inviting anything and everything on to your phone. Any unwanted...

@Biggles,

Sorry, you're wrong. The only way to update binaries is through the software-install mechanism. Updates need to be signed as well. Taking updates from a developers server is no more or...

Surely the model preferred by Steve is that the application checks for updates when you open it? If you haven't opened it then you don't need an update because you aren't using it. As soon as you do...

No, the N97(s) have that as well. Not sure why the non-N Series devices (other than the C6) don't though.

That's a meaningless comment, because these phones aren't loss leaders being pushed out for the sake of marketshare. The margins may be thin, but they do make money for Nokia. This may not be the...

2.) OpenVG as a rendering system is much more power efficient...

Hi Richard,

It's quite common to put downloads behind a sign-in. Nokia do it, Apple do it, we do it. It's probably there because otherwise it wouldn't be with all the other tools. I'll pass the...

You know, somehow I don't think they're shooting at the DSLR crowd with this one. So the more pertinent question is - "Name me one person who doesn't want to worry about remembering to pack a compact...

You're absolutely right, and I said the same. It would be worthwhile to find a class 6 card and see how that does, just to see though.

It seems that SEMC PR (or the company they use)...
