12 Jan , 2013  

Swype_Logo_Web_300px

As we reported at No More Swype For Symbian Now? , Swype stopped working on Symbian almost one and a half month back. However, as said at Fix For Swype For Symbian Is Available , we got a fix for it but it required hacking.

Guys at Swype did promise about a new update extending the beta trial.  Finally, we have received a new beta build which is working, again.

Hey there Symbian users. We’ve made a small patch for those of you who’ve experienced the timeout on S^3 and S60. Click that download link over there to find the update. We’ll be watching the forums so reach out if you experience any problems.  Thanks Symbian Swypers for all of your dedication, and I hope your Swyping finger isn’t too lazy from the holiday feasting.

In the spirit of Symbian and 2013, we’re giving away some Swype gear at www.facebook.com/swype. Head on over and try your luck 🙂

More to come!

Peter @ Swype

Head to Betalabs to download the new built.

I was one of those who was lazy to hack and use a fix. Finally after 40 days, it feels great to be back on swype, what about you?

Phone Freezing While Browing with Default Browser After Belle Refresh Update?

31 Aug , 2012  

I guess most of the Symbian Belle users out has received Belle Refresh update and rest of them are about to receive it. As @ctrohin said in previous post, indeed, Belle Refresh is not a great update. We got few more widgets (and most of them were already available separately), an updated browser and a new UI in music player. Not much, huh? Especially when you are expecting a better VKB, slightly overclocking and some other nice fp1 features. I was, too, disappointed with update.

Well, here I’m not going to talk about how good or bad update is actually. Belle Refresh brought an updated browser. I’m not really impressed with how they removed that menu screen having icons, with just text option menu. After the update, this browser is really causing trouble to me. I don’t browser much on my phone. I use clients of most of the services, but yes, we are on Symbian, dying (or dead already? ) platform, we don’t have clients for many services. So, sometime I have to use Browser and access their Mobile Web service.

While surfing using this new browser, phone suddenly freezes, nothing works! Only way to get my phone working is hard reboot, by pressing and holding power button for 8 sec. This is  very annoying. I wouldn;t consider this an issue if it had happened once, twice or thrice. But I face is almost every time I am browsing. It has happened 6 or 7 times so far ( and I haven’t used browser more than 8-9 times ). This bug is crazily annoying. I am not sure if other are facing this bug. I updated my Nokia N8 to Belle Refresh with OTA update.

Please feel free to comment any of you have faced this issue or just let me know your feedback on this issue. You can also discuss with us @NokiaTips.

GSMArena’s Blind Test Result Revealed: Nokia 808 PureView Wins!

18 Jun , 2012  

GSMArena put up the blind test for camera quality of different device. It was a blind test, means the names of the contenders were not revealed. They put several comparison pics taken using several unknown devices in different situations and asked their users to vote for the best results. They went through 1000+ comments and prepared the result.

Nokia 808 PureView won by a huge margin. Though it was surprising that Nokia N8 was at 4th position! More surprising was HTC One X!

We have seen several comparision where Nokia N8 scored more than iPhone 4S!

Whatsoever, but Nokia 808 PureView was outstanding as expected. Nokia will surely never let any one win Camera phone’s race. 😉

Your thoughts?

Low noise, fast apertures, good flash exposures & even decent video capabilities. Recently I got my hands on the Nokia N8 – The N-Series Nokia device & was excited to have a look at its camera.
