I had a lot of fun playing Dalton The Awesome on Nokia N9, spends lots of hours playing it. So stumbling on Dalton The Awesome Realoaded and buying it at the moment on my Nokia N8 was obvious. I bought it right away. But how was the experience? Let’s find out.
Update: 13th May, 2012
Nokia nailed down the problem with “Download failure” it will be fixed on Monday (14 Apr 2012), and users will be able to download 1.0.0 version safely. Please do NOT press “Download” button more than 10 times to avoid double charges. More info at their official site: http://fm-radio.mobi
Nokia N9 FM Radio application for N9 unlocks FM receiver functionality for Nokia N9 phones. New version has 2 different themes and RDS support, it is far most popular radio application in the OVI Store.
Previously FM Radio (Retro) was shared for free as Beta version with many users, after testing was done, author gathered a lot of important feedback and made improvements in the backend. For instance, it would be impossible to support so many different headsets without Beta testing. Retro design was recognized by users as well, so new version has got a clear Fallout style theme. FM Radio was the first radio application in the store and after the public release became most popular very fast.
First OVI Store version was obviously lacking RDS support and in despite of good looking UI did not fully fit into Nokia N9 style. But version 1.0.0 change the situation completely. Now user can choose between Retro style and new Nokia N9 theme. New version has automatic channel search and supports favourite channel list.
After the introduction, let’s check available features:
Recently we show video of Wazapp in action. Recently, developer announce on their website that he is going to release first public version of Wazapp on May 1st.
Are you excited to receive WhatApp client of one of the most popular messaging platform on MeeGo?
Oh Well! I’m rest assured that our MeeGo and Maemo friends would be glad to see this. Over the past few months, there has been an online movement (a kinda petition) for the porting of WhatsApp to the MeeGo family. While I was playing in the “NokiaTips Lab” 🙂 I stumbled upon a post by our friends at MeeGoExperts
With the interest of the global village at heart, the community folks at talk.maemo.org have joined forces together to port this wonderful IM solution called WhatsApp on devices running the Meego Harmattan and Maemo OS. The image above shows the development being tested on one of the devices. Additionally, we hear that the beta is expected to be released anytime next week.
You can monitor the development process here: http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=82384
You can as well contribute on its development as it would help in creating a wonderful app.

A work of art and a beauty to behold. That is how I will label the Nokia N9. I have had a trial unit courtesy of Nokia Connects for a few days. The unit I have is Blue.
Those are the exact words of “The Brand Evangelist”. He is Jesse by name and he is a mobile enthusiast. He has handled quite a number of mobile phones in the past.
What prompted me to trial this device is what I have heard about Swipe being addictive. After using it for a few days, I can tell you how addicted i have been to Swipe. I tend to Swipe each time on my Nokia N8 too.
On Messaging, here is what Jesse concluded:
I find the Messaging integration of the Nokia N9 very fascinating. The design of the sms UI and the speed with which the OS responds makes me want to keep texting. The touch keypads are well spaced and very responsive also.
Using Skype, Facebook and Gtalk chat feels like you are chatting using an iPhone. It is fast and clean.
On the Nokia N9’s native Browser, this is what Jesse says:
The native browser is HTML5 enabled. If you sign in to Twitter, you will get the mobile web app version of twitter.
Ofcourse you can navigate to Jesse’s blog as there are more to uncover. 🙂
In addition to Jesse’s wonderful write up, here’s “a bit extra” courtesy of Nokia Conversations featuring the Nokia N9.
