Nokia OVI maps 3D

I never knew Nokia was still investing into their mapping technology, I used to own a N95 for many years and that was by far the best smartphone in it’s hay days, infact, the camera on it ( 5mb, this is back in 2007) is still considered to produce the best quality photos (it uses Carl Zeiss lens).  So when I installed the plugged and tried out the 3D maps, I was quietly surprise and simply blown away by the quality.  The texture mapping and 3D models are photo realistic and simply stunning.  They still need to improve the controls as it’s not as easy to move around the map.  Anyway, give it a good, I’m sure you’ll be as surprise as I was.  Check it out here.

Nokia Booklet 3G

Nokia have released their own version of the Netbook with the Booklet 3G.  This little device is well, like any other netbooks, does what other netbook does.  The only major difference is that it come with 3G support.  So you can  now stick your 3G SIM card in the booklet and hit the road.  I saw a demo unit at bestbuy and they do look very good, much thinner than other netbooks out there.  Overall, the design is very good but too expensive, well over the $400 mark.  Check out a review here.
