~wonderful animated themes for your nokia~

Before I found thess amazing themes, I felt my mobile screen boring. So plain! I wanted some changes. In my opinion, theme is the way to distinguish my mobile from others. But look at my mobile screen, just some photos, pictures like car, dog, cat, movie star, landscape, etc. They are nice, but they can’t move, and I want something different, something interesting. Finally…, I found these wonderful themes—TUTU Animated Screen. ^_^
When I saw them for the first time, I just found them interesting, they could move. But suddenly I noticed that, with this little theme, there was a change on my phone menu. Wow~~ so cool! A quite different menu operation----more humanistic, and more simple-to-use!
I am sure that there must b...

I learned a really cool thing about S60 (N95)

When you press and hold 0 it launches the default web browser. At least it does on the N95, I don't know about any other S60 handsets. That makes sense considering the internet is kind of the world's operator.

Question about S60 5th Ed. (N97 owners)

I'm a current owner of the N95 (almost 2yrs) and am wondering a few things about Nokia's touch smartphones running S60 5th Ed. Is there a version of Google Maps for Mobile that runs on S60 5th that is compatible with the N97, also, is there a version of JoikuSpot that runs on S60 5th Ed.

I'm debating between my next phone being a smartphone similar to the N97 mini, or something such as the N900. Becoming debt free comes first though.

The sudden obsolescence of S60

Really, not much need be said beyond S60 went from being a solid smartphone OS competitor in 2007 to almost paleolithic by comparison to the UIs that are popping up on most phones.

The smartphone category has really expanded beyond the handful of PDAs with built in phone there seemed to be when S60 was king. The range of touchscreen UIs (standalone proprietary to OS overlays like Sense on top of Android or the various UIs to make Windows Mobile functional) have really come a long way from gimmicky iPhone imitators to serious communication tools.

Bottom line: I can't see myself buying another Nokia/S60 phone unless they get with the times. And I feel kinda petty & impatient for thinking that way, but technology has moved along prett...

Is it S60 or the camera???

Okay, I have tried out the E71, the 6650 Flip, and now the 5800 XPress Music, and all of them take grainy pictures. I had first thought it was a camera issue, but seeing it has happened on three S60 devices with three different cameras, I am now thinking it is a software issue.

Any ideas on how to get this issue resolved???

Note: this was also posted in the Nokia message board
