The Nokia World 09 is already over. However, I’ve just found a short clip that sums up the whole event in less than one and a half minute. You can see the venue, the party and the keynotes. However, mostly you’ll see people coming together, sharing and collaborating. That is what the Nokia World is all about! All our Nokia World related posts can be found just here.
The Nokia N97 Mini has a 5 Megapixel Camera with autofocus and a Carl Zeiss lens. This sounds indeed really promising and thus I’ve managed some prototype samples photos to see the quality. The sharpness is good but the colour, for example of the lawn or the flowers, is to pale and not fresh enough. As a reminder, these photos are from Nokia N97 Mini’s that are not running final firmware. I expect to see improvements before they become available later this year.
Interview: Axel E. Meyer, Head of Explore Design, about Nokia’s development, the N97, Apple iPhone and more
At the Nokia World in Stuttgart I had the chance to talk with Axel E. Meyer, Head of Explore Design, from Nokia. He is responsible for all the latest N-Series devices. In the interview we talked about the Nokia N97 (mini), the Apple iPhone and mistakes in the past. He explained the steps in the design-development, talked about his favourite devices and the step from rubber-boots to a Web 2.0 company.
During Nokia World 2009 Nokia announced that they are soon going to splash out a new 2.0 Firmware update for the Nokia N97. This update is definitely worth the mention as it is bringing a host of new features, many improvements and several bug fixes, that will change the way you use your device.The update is due to roll out either mid/end of October and will initially be available via NSU (Nokia Software Update). The new firmware will then later appear over the air via FOTA (Firmware Over The Air).
Well, the Nokia N900 isn’t running Symbian but nevertheless I would like to give you some insights as the N900 will change Nokia’s strategy and also Symbian’s devices. The N900 is a internet-tablet first and a mobile phone second. So we focused the coverage on the new Maemo5 UI and the internet. Regarding the specs it features a 5 megapixel camera, GPS, WiFi, 32 GB of onboard storage and a 3.5” touch screen. It will be definitely one of the hottest phones of this and next year. However, judge yourself and take a look at the video and the pictures:
