All data is stored in a diary so you can chart your progress, find your strengths and weaknesses, and share with others. In the future you will be able to upload your tacks to the online-service as well. Sportstracker is available for the Nokia 5800, N97, N97 mini, X6, 5230, 5235 as well as for the 5530 and can be downloaded in the Ovi Store. Hence only S60 5th Edition (Symbian^1) devices are supported,no non-touch devices yet.
Nonetheless, SportsTracker is definitely a must have application, whether you are a professional runner or just eager to know the distance from your home to your work place.

Stuff Magazine Review The Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro

The guys over at Stuff Magazine have got their hands on the Sony Ericsson Vivas and Vivas Pro. The Vivaz Pro is the QWERTY keyboard version of the Vivaz and it still retains all the features of its sibling, barring a few key differences. The Vivas has an 8.1MP camera whereas the Vivaz Pro packs in 5.1MPs and therefore a smaller sensor to make way for it’s slide out keyboard. The Vivaz Pro is also 2mm thicker, but the best part however, is they both pack 720p HD video mode, putting it up against the likes of Samsung’s i8910 HD. Julian Whitehorn gives a quick overview of the Vivas Pro in his hands-on demo after the break.
