New BMW Concept Electric Car with iPhone App?

Dec 17, 20090

P90054917 BMW already have an electric car in their stable, the Mini-E, which has begun trials with selected members of the public. Now BMW are adding to the fleet of electric vehicles with the BMW Concept ActiveE; an electric vehicle under the BMW brand. More specifically it is a 1 Series Coupé.

Opera Mini Beta 5 – Optimised for N97 et al.

Sep 21, 20091

The previous version of Opera Mini worked well on Symbian S60 3rd Edition handsets but wasn’t conceived in anticipation of the touch-screen version of the S60, S60 5th Edition, which can be found on the Nokia N97 and the 5800, to name two. As a result touch functionality didn’t work and the user had to fall back to the hardware keys of the N97 and the virtual keypad of the 5800.

Remove Boingo Access Point from the N97

Aug 13, 20090

A pet hate of mine is pre-installed apps on devices, especially when they can’t be removed from the paltry storage space provided. In the case of the N97, you may have started up the Boingo application that comes pre-installed, by mistake with no intention of ever using it, only to find out that it adds a new Internet Access Point to your Destinations that cannot be removed! The only solution until now has been to carry out a soft reset of the phone.

Aug 12, 20090

applications Being a relatively new platform in terms of software offerings, users of the Nokia N97, may be looking for the latest and greatest apps to use on their device or to show off its features. The Series 60 5th Edition Symbian operating system is shared with the Nokia 5800 as well as several other handsets from other manufacturers but unlike Apple’s iPhone and Android based mobiles, the enthusiast/developer community doesn’t seem as active.
