  • Hey N97, let's be friends (its not me, its you)

    This post has been an idea in my head, bouncing around while I debate what to write about my Nokia N97. I was hoping I could tell you that the phone performs even better than I expected, satisfies all my needs and is undoubtedly the best phone ever … like, ever! Sadly, I can’t do […]

  • Nokia launches the N97, N86 8MP and Ovi Store in South Africa

    Nokia launched the much anticipated N97 as well as a hot little camera focussed phone, the N86 8MP at a launch hosted at Turbine Hall in Newtown, Johannesburg on Thursday, 16 July 2009. It also made a number of announcements about the Ovi Store and a competition launched for local developers. I captured some of […]

  • Looking under the hood – the Symbian OS

    I have been given an opportunity to chat to David Rivas, Nokia’s Vice President Product & Technology Management about the Symbian operating system. There has been quite a lot of talk about how shoddy the series 60 user interface is and it got me wondering about the operating system itself, under the UI, so I […]

  • How the Seattle Coffee Co. (Killarney Mall) ripped me off!

I’ve probably been a Seattle fan since the chain opened in Joburg and I have had pretty much the same thing for most […]

  • I love the new iPhone 3G S

    Oh boy, I dig the new iPhone 3G S! This is what the iPhone should have been last year and possibly even when it first launched. I think Apple has actually produced an iPhone I could see myself owning, happily. I have been excited when Apple launched its previous two iPhone models and was disappointed […]

  • Awesome new Nokia N97 videos

    I just watched this new ad and it is brilliant. Watch for the variation of the welcome screen at the beginning of the video – love it! (via @LeoMckay) Update: I just came across these two videos which are pretty cool too. The one focuses on the N97’s Facebook application functionality and the other on […]

  • I found N: first impressions of a Nokia N97

    I received a pre-release Nokia N97 from Nokia SA yesterday to take a look at and test for a couple weeks. The version I received is not the same version that will be shipped but it is probably pretty close. In a sense this is a release candidate so there is still a chance the […]
