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 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.
Recently installed Skyfire, which is a mobile browser for Symbian phones. This a great piece of software as it allows for playing flash video. Did a little test on it, was streaming twit.tv live on my N95. Looks sweet. Check out Skyfire here.

A sneak peek at the upcoming Nokia N96 flagship smartphone. Much the same as the N95 with more features like keys for N-gage games and even a pop out TV-stand for videos. Sweet…..
At least in February anyway. The result is based on Krusell, a mobile phone case manufacturer who reports on cases sold for each month. Nokia dominated 7 out of 10 in the top 10 list. Check it out here.
