For the last two years I’ve been using an HTC Desire. In the last few days I’ve upgraded to an HTC One X. Whilst I liked the Desire a lot, one thing that really let it down – the lack of space to install apps. I spent most of the last year with the “short… Continue reading Android Applications
I’ve now had my G1 for almost a week, so it’s time to share some first impressions. The executive summary is that I’m really rather happy with the phone. There’s one small niggle problem and one huge “what the bloody hell were they thinking” issue. Good things first. The phone works well and does pretty… Continue reading Google Phone – First Impressions
My current phone is a Nokia N91, I’ve had it for well over two years, which is probably the longest time I’ve owned any phone, and I’ve been very happy with it. Of course it’s showing its age technologically now, but I haven’t had any problems with it. But last week, whilst I was in… Continue reading Phone Strangeness

Of course, a new phone provider means a new contract. And a new contract means a new phone. What I really wanted was a Nokia N95, but on the contract I’ve… Continue reading New Phone
So, iPhone. Looks nice, but I can’t see anything that says that it plays Ogg Vorbis files. Which makes it useless to me.
A version of Shozu has been released for Series 60 version 3. Amongst other things, that means that I can now use Shozu on my Nokia N91. This is good. I never really got on with Lifeblog.

Firstly, although it supports video calls there is no camera on the front of the phone. This means that if you’re making a video call then the other person can’t see you.… Continue reading N91 Review
A few small bits of progress with the phone. I worked out what was wrong with the email settings. It really helps if you get the name of the outgoing mail server right There’s a test version of Symbian OggPlay ready for S60 V3. I’ve emailed them asking to be included in the test programme… Continue reading Phone Progress
My new Nokia N91 arrived on the same day as my new laptop so I’ve been playing with it for a few days. Here are some first impressions. It’s a large phone. Far heavier than the k600i that it’s replacing. But then, it does more so that’s probably to be expected. As a phone, it… Continue reading New Toys – Phone
I’ve just been phoned by someone at the Nokia Club offering me a chance to test drive a Nokia N91. I get three weeks to try the phone and fill in a questionnaire and then I get to keep the phone. I said yes please. Should arrive in a couple of days. Anyone got any… Continue reading Nokia N91
