Nokia, ugly devices

It hits me really, week in European seminar and I am holder of ugliest devices here. As I have E90 and E61i with me, others are cooling with their iPhones and Blackberries. Nokia, what you do about it?

Nokia, you devices are lacking and still looking like Engineering Sample - compared to others. They are delivered late, they try to include everything - but still limited by S60 (especially it's browser).

Your Linux phones should be here now, community has the power now and you are keeping them out with your outdated and cumbersome S60 platforms.

Maemo is only thing in my 810 which is impressing peoples here, for my S60 fleet they are laughing..

It's not so great to be Finnish anymore :(

E90 updated

Updated my Mocca E90 to latest software version with NSU and yes, now it's like it should have been from a start. I also downloaded new Maps 2.0 application, but navigation license is still off from this deal.

Why I would like to pay navigation, while Google Maps in E90 brings working routing and GPS plotting on the Google Map? It's not voice guidance and it's not autorouting, but still it's manually very usable and have guided me to various places for free. Think about it Nokia.

After upgraded my curret phone, I swiched my company E90 off and equiped it with suitable sticker (as can be seen from attached picture)...

And yes, now we just wait for those Linux phones from Nokia. I just can't wait to get my hands on those.

Still for N810 and GPG

To clarify one blog comment of N810 support for GPG, I just want to say that my plans included some application building inside N810 where encryption plays significant role. But as N810 in built GPG does not support encryption, I think I should compile full version of gpg to N810 by myself ?

Strange world, but I kind of like it ;)

vmware installation to ubuntu 8.04

I did vmware installation with these instructions. It was easy and now I am able to run that one and only windows software I need. One compiler. So, thanks for community for giving fast response in vmware installation and of course, vmware for such a great product.

Now I just wonder, where to find ubuntu upgrade descriptions?
