In this podcast we cover:    

  • Angry Birds wins 'best game' on Ovi Store. Why is Angry Birds not on older Symbian devices?
  • Nokia N8 pre-order
  • Discussion of Qt on Samsung (and Sony Ericsson)
  • Vodafone Mobile Clicks competition
  • Listener questions (all leading to some additional discussion):
    • @Ew4n: How would America react to Nokia announcing 2-top of the range Android handsets (answer: it wouldn't ever happen, but if it would... not much).
    • @PhotoProLive: Is FizWoz legitimate?
    • @BigBrova: What do you think of the quality of software for Nokia services (Ovi Store, Nokia Messaging etc.) ?
    • @JamesBurland: How should Nokia advertise the N8 in the mainstream media?
    • Debate on the impact quality has on 'user experience'. So... would you rather have a device as buggy as the N97 with the UI of the iPhone, or a device that looks like the N97 with almost perfect quality?
  • Nokia N8 developer day in London
