Buenos dias mi amigos! Comparing the N900 to other Symbian devices, we would see that it is a lot better in terms of the OS and hardware specs. But on the other side of having the pleasure of powerful and fast device is the lack of great support from Ovi Store. Yet, there are still apps that would surely wet our gaming instinct. So, here’s is my top 3 N900 games that I’m wishing to have on my Symbian devices—and some of these are already coming to future Symbian devices like N8.
- Angry Birds by Rovio – First of all, this is my favorite game and I’m considering of wasting my time just for this game. This is the most
peaceful, chaotic, destructive, but still the most cutest and excitemet-packed game I’ve had ever played. Where you will be going to play as the five angry birds each with unique capabilities and your goal is to destroy and puff these little innocent martian-look-a-like pigs. There are 3 level packs and each pack contains 21 stages and I’m betting that first timer can’t finish the 3 level packs in one day (evil laugh). This is one of the most anticipated games for Symbian, so better watch out for it!
- Bounce Revolution by Rovio – The success of bounce has written its name on the history and even on the Ngage 2.0, and now we have the latest of its kind. The game has one classic and one race level for demo, but the experience is really fantasitc because of the awesome graphics. The 3D capabilities is also present. I am wishing Rovio could expand their services for Symbian users.
- Brain Party by Hudzilla – If your smart enough to guess the title then you are ready to play it. It involves brain-twisting menu. From puzzle to simple touch games that will boost your brain efficiency. I played many games like this but this is one has different flavours to enjoy.
So what games are you wishing to have in your Symbian device?
At the moment I am an owner of a Nokia N97. I have been a Nokia user for many years and among other handsets, I owned an N95 with which I was very pleased actually. When I received the N97, I felt the N97 to be an improvement nevertheless.
Sadly, my N97 has continuous stability problems and it just doesn’t seem to work, although it was in repair two times now. This seems not to be a general N97-issue. In this particular case, there seems to be a hardware defect somewhere deep inside the device and the Nokia Care Point just isn’t able to locate it.
I took this for a reason to take a look around and check out the hot and new devices on the market:
It was just a matter of time till we, the SymbianWorld team, will jump on the Maemo train. And as we couldn’t cover Maemo here on SymbianWorld we decided to start a Maemo blog. The name was obvious and so we started MaemoWorld. Just like on SymbianWorld we try to deliver news, N900 downloads, tutorials and more with MaemoWorld. However, this doesn’t mean that we will neglect this blog. Thus, please stay tuned here on SymbianWorld and visit us on MaemoWorld.
Today Nokia and Qt released the Beta version of Qt 4.6.0. Qt is a cross-platform application and UI framework. Using Qt, one can write applications once and deploy them across desktop, mobile and embedded operating systems without rewriting the source code. The beta runs on S60 3rd Edition as well as 5th Edition devices. I’ve installed it on my Nokia N97 and it looks really impressive. The focus of this release has been to stabilize the Symbian port, as well as adding a backend for the Phonon multimedia library enabling simple audio and video playback. The “Colossus” beta-release contains QtCore, QtTest, QtGui, QtNetwork, QtScript, QtSvg, QtWebKit, QtXML and Phonon as well as documentation and examples and demo.
To download Colossus straight to your phone point your phone’s browser to qt.nokia.com/phonedemo. For best performance we recommend to install in Phone memory.
