Love at first sight.
Xuds and I were at the Nokia Concept Store (MOA) yesterday to pick up a new battery for my unused 2700C when this sleek unit caught my eye.
It’s far from being a smartphone and its barely a Series 60 handset, but I can’t seem to get my mind off the X3-02. If we hadn’t asked the store staff, we would not have known that it’s a Touch & Type device, which explains the lack of physical navigation buttons. It also has built-in Wi-Fi which, of course, is music to my ears. The 5.0 megapixel camera is quite a neat feature, too. But I probably would not have cared, since it’s really the design
I was obsessing I’m still obsessing over.
So, yes, I’m considering getting one on top of any other smartphone (read: Nokia Lumia 800 and/or N9) I have ogled at before.
I’m sorry RIM and Porsche, but even the HTC ChaCha looks better.
Could this really be the first leaked photo taken with the much-awaited iPhone 5?
The articles over at PocketNow and Mashable say the answers are pretty clear on the EXIF data of the photo. I downloaded the original file, uploaded it on Google+ (because I wanted to see the GPS data, too) and got this:
They also say EXIF data re fairly easy to tweak these days but what do you think?
Yep, Samsung actually has a mobile OS now.
I mean, yes they’ve always had one outside of Android, but now they’re affording it a share of the spotlight and opening up to developers for its growth and, I guess, better market reception.
By the looks of it—and as far as the release of the handsets running it along with what YouTube video reviews have provided—the UI is still pretty much TouchWiz. Only difference is that, this time, its running on top of native Samsung OS as compared to how most users have previously enjoyed it with Android.
Well, I didn’t know all of that until today.
Okay, so I guess I was not alone in asking why in the name of crap did Nokia release the N9 prior to releasing their first Windows Phone and promising to have both available within this year.
Well, Nokia addressed that issue right away and decided to give a sneak peek of Sea Ray—their first Windows Phone!!!
Geekgasm is an understatement to what I’m experiencing right now.
So, Nokia released the N9 which will be available this year.
But they also previously announced that they will be releasing their first Windows Phone 7 this year too.
Is it just me or is that really confusing? I mean, what purpose does Nokia have for releasing a handset running an OS (MeeGo) that they decided not to support in future releases, making way for their WP7-based models?
Nonetheless, the N9 looks really awesome. From the body to the UI design—everything looks sleek. Which is interesting, because the N9’s UI design almost already looks like WP7’s Metro. What gives?

“I run ten miles every morning, do 2000 situps a day, eat 7000 calories, and train 8 weeks straight. So, why did I get a small phone? Well, if there’s one thing I know… Little guys can packa panch!” (smiles)
