Sony Ericsson Yari Reviewed

The folks at GsmArena have just posted a review of the Sony Ericsson Yari. Here's what they had to say:
We were very excited about the Sony Ericsson Yari when we started the review. The camera-tracked gesture control combined with accelerometer action is a move in the right direction for gaming â€" just look at the sales of the Nintendo Wii compared to PlayStation 3 for example (and the Wii just uses an accelerometer-enabled controller, it can’t do the camera gesture trick).
But the more advanced of the two preinstalled games â€" Tennis â€" has the equivalent to two buttons for control â€" one to press and release to serve and another to press when the game prompts you to hit the ball. While using the camera instead of physical buttons is impressive, the game itself is simpler than Guitar Hero â€" and you don’t get Rock Band style multiplayer fun either.
And the primary camera was quite a surprise â€" an unpleasant surprise. From the makers of impressive Cybershot cameraphones, not tweaking the camera contrast is a major blunder. The weak signal reception and poor keypad mean that the Yari doesn’t do so well as a phone either. And what’s with the gaming keys that have such limited use?
But there were some high points â€" the Sony Ericsson Yari could easily live up to the Walkman series name, though it isn’t officially part of that range. And SatNav navigation for feature phones is hard to come by, even if you’re willing to pay for it. The push email support is a great feature, though we would have liked a preinstalled IM client too.
The Sony Ericsson Yari is not a very expensive phone so maybe we shouldn’t be too hard on it â€" after all, it offers a great package for the price.

Something slightly different: Google a nexus review

Review the Google nexus
Yes, I picked up a Google nexus a.It is for me my first serious foray in Android and the land of eclairs, Donuts, and Cupcakes.Googles full touch screen phone me, my two-week-old Nokia N900 completely delete would attract?

The nexus-one is a beautiful phone.Zeitraum.Es feels expensive - contrast, that to the N900 which is just as high-quality plastic to most - and HTC a large work with has done the look and feel. The front and the pages are some kind of metallic plastic mix while the rear cover is feeling a rubbery (but cheap rubber). It is to launch super thin and well built.
The touch screen is a large WVGA (800 × 480) 3.7″-AMOLED display and quite simply sees everything excellent darauf.Ich, however, admit that I am not a big fan of the nexus of one's capacitive touch screen. Very finicky - sometimes receive tap on the screen are futile while the phone completely ignored. It is not common occur, an unpleasant. Say what you will but I had to deal with more resistiv window because I think as my fingernail taps far more correct somewhat less sensitive to the N900.
The complaint also covers the virtual keyboard I found less than satisfactory. I have entered 90% of the words on this phone, probably incorrectly.I could not just get it and it was more a hindrance than a help. And the on-screen keyboard in the portrait? also you not me started.
Other issues with the phone hardware are fairly minor: extend the camera lens a little from the back of the phone and you are probably at the end of accidentally it cover several times as habe.Die trackball in general except for the times if I edit text (I could not to insert the cursor in any text with a precision apparently) had also useful. The speaker was loud could - have, above all, because it is the sound with the back of the phone when the phone is flat is muted. Some calls you, which definitely missed.
Finally, battery life was above average.I never really was sufficient in any danger of battery life, but keep in mind I was as I am still on at&T and the nexus one conveniently missing at & t's 850 / 1900 bands with EDGE instead of HSPA.
The latest version of the Android 2.1, is extremely easy to use and equally well suited for beginners and experts smartphone users. It is most super fast, stylish and intuitive.Zum at least. A nuisance: the nexus of one of the home screen, which does not support landscape mode. Not sound a Biggie right?Try it with the Google search widget without keyboard landscape: the devil close to impossible.
Because this a Google phone, there are a lot of integration with Google core platforms - Gmail, talk, maps, etc.The applications are pretty much what you would expect honest. Gmail works gut.Google talk works well. Cards works well, but I had not much use for it without a date type for my car.
One of the new features of that brings in the nexus one table is speech recognition or speech to text.Voice search worked surprisingly well recognize really basic Chinesisch.Das was cool.Realistic but not this appears a useful form, until we reach the point where you normally only can speak text of sprinkling in voice commands with speech to text messages and searches.(as in say, iron man)
What I really liked about the software was the little polishing the nexus one stand out from the competition.By things like a running list of functions which use most battery that last time since the free passed (why not every phone has), live means wallpaper, the and even the factory reset, what actually like a factory reset and completely removes all traces of their information (unfortunately your applications with it).Super smooth kinetic scrolling everywhere was a cherry on top.
As for multi-tasking, well, I still get not diese.Ich have really no idea what applications at any time are open.It is actually somewhat annoying.Can this but with some third-party applications (advanced task killer) fix.It seems only type one strange that an external application would need to do so.
There is also no multi touch, which I am sure I will say a number of people at many levels in verstoßen.Anreise from which nothing with multi-telecommunications networks less telephones can that I it really vermisst.Eine review by the Engadget review made a good point though - the lack of multi touch is certainly violated gaming opportunities for your phone.
Compare the nexus one to the N900
The nexus one has a lot for it gehen.Es is faster and has a much better interface than the N900.Es a hell of many more applications that Android app store as likely ever store on Nokia Ovi werden.Und yet... I am my N900 multi tasking is much more robust halten.Die keyboard is far more reliable and - may be the main reason - I think like me with my phone maemo-powered have more control.
Of course, is this thinking for jedermann.Es is a good chance, my priorities differ from Ihnen.Wenn you search for a good iPhone replacement, is there with the best ' em nexus One.Es could be even the next best to the iPhone.

Now free Nokia: Ovi maps a "game changing move"

21 January 2010

A "secret" start event brought early today (a, many of us I sure idea was for a new handset) message that Nokia Ovi maps will be completely free. This is drive and navigation, Lonely Planet walk guides, the whole shebang. Free.And it is now verfügbar.Sweet.

It is a big step, but far from "Game changing", sure.Pessimists might say it is typical Nokia M.O.-something to offer the competition move and where Android maps - but it always nor a welcome gesture.

The new application is devices beschränkt.Sie available on Ovi maps and S60 also the latest of Nokia map loader can find it.

In the meantime N900 user unfortunately still have with the mockery living is the maemo version of Ovi cards an app that I have to say is one ever made of the most useless navigation tools.

Nokia N900 Review: A Multi-Tasking Monster

Nokia's latest smartphone is also its most capable.
The Nokia N900 is the latest and greatest smartphone brought to you by the same folks that brought you the not-so-great N97. But the N900 isn’t cut from the same cloth: it has a snappy operating system, faster processor, and a nice collection of completely free apps. Will the N900 follow the same path as Nokia’s last smartphone? Or is it destined for something greater?
Full review inside.

At first glance, the N900 looks just like Nokia’s N97 smartphone. It’s big, heavy, and mostly plastic, but it’s also stylish and solid. No creaking here.
One potential issue lies with the N900’s landscape mode. The phone was meant to be (almost) exclusively used in landscape mode, and this is reflected in the N900’s button placements. The Power/On switch is located on the side of the phone, and the lock/unlock switch is on the bottom. It’s awkward, since most people (myself included) are used to one-handed phone operation.
The QWERTY keyboard is pretty much average, but it’s still a huge leap from the squishiness of the Nokia N97 keyboard. My main gripe is the button hardness – you have to push the keys harder than you’d expect. Because of this, it’s difficult to type quickly. The key placement isn’t horrible, but new users will have to get used to the space bar to the right of the M key, and the placement of the Symbol/Ctrl and Caps keys.
To be completely honest, the N900 phone hardware is really nothing amazing – there are other phones out there with better features. What really makes (or breaks) the N900 is the software.
The N900 runs Maemo 5, a Linux-based operating system. It’s the same OS that Nokia introduced with its line of internet tablets. This is good for two reasons: first, there’s a decent number of free apps available for Maemo (and potentially a lot more that can be ported over from other Linux-based OS’es). Second, it’s fast.
The flip side of things is that software for the N900 is limited only to the creativity of individual developers – developers who have no monetary incentives, because there’s no real app store at the current moment. But that also means that you won’t find fifty different (useless) fart apps for Maemo.
Maemo 5 has a slight learning curve, although nowhere near as complex as I originally thought in my N900 first impressions post. Give the phone a couple of hours, and you’ll be swiping through desktop views and flying through menus. It will, however, take you considerably longer to figure out the more advanced features (repositories, debian packages, X terminal, etc) of the OS.
Multi-tasking is where the N900 truly shines. At any given time, I’ll have 6-10 applications open – browser windows, IM/SMS boxes, notes app, games, etc – and the N900 handles everything flawlessly. Switching between different applications is as simple as hitting the icon in the top left corner, and then tapping on one of the application (real-time) snapshots. It’s quick enough and intuitive enough that I find myself naturally swapping back and forth when I find myself waiting for a web site to load, or downloading an app. Man, I love it.
And now I’d like to talk about some noteworthy (not necessarily for the better) applications:
I’d call the stock email client a mixed bag. While setting up accounts is easy as pie, grabbing emails from external accounts (Yahoo!, Gmail, etc) takes forever, and I still have never successfully managed to send any emails out – they remained stuck in the limbo known as the Outbox. Not really too robust.
I’d also like to see threaded emails a la Gmail.
Multiple Desktops
A little disappointing. Essentially, the multiple desktops/views feature allows you to put different shortcuts and widgets on each desktop, using finger swipes to navigate through each one. It’s like Mac OS X’s Spaces, but not as well-executed. Added shortcuts are missing text labels, icons do not snap to a grid (so lining up icons ends up being a bit of a chore for neat freaks), and there’s very few (useful) widgets. Case in point: the Google widget, which you’d assume to be a desktop search box, is actually just an oversized bookmark to Google Search.
Finally, threaded SMS and integration with Google Talk and other “popular” chat platforms! I was a little surprised that AIM wasn’t included in the list, but you can add that and several other platforms like Twitter, ICQ (does anyone even use ICQ anymore?) and MSN with a small addon from the repository. Very well done overall.
For the most part, I like the N900 browser. It’s based on Mozilla, renders pages perfectly fine, and is fast enough. The only thing that really bothers me are input textboxes, which sometimes require multiple taps in different spots to get working. Oh yeah, and you also can’t uninstall Nokia’s useless “Single sign-on for Ovi by Nokia” browser add-on.
Call Quality
As well as can be expected. I had no real problems hearing or being heard. I do wish the loudspeaker was a bit louder, though.
Prospective N900 buyers may want to note that there’s a microphone issue with a select number of N900s which pretty much cuts off all microphone recording (phone, video recording, etc) – so make sure you test this out first thing.
I’m happy to report that the speakers on the N900 are decent. And by decent, I mean closer on the scale to Nokia’s XpressMusic series than the Nseries line.
I also like the onboard media player. It played several DiVX videos right out of the box which was a welcome surprise. And if the stock player doesn’t float your boat, several alternatives such as Mplayer (and the Kmplayer GUI addon) are available in the repositories.
Battery Life
It’s hard to do a good battery test, and the best that I can say is that I barely made it through a day of battery life with heavy usage. With typical normal usage, however, you should not have a problem with the phone lasting the entire day.
One caveat, however: I’m on EDGE, which drains less battery than 3G. If you’re a heavy 3G user, I’d be willing to bet you’ll need to carry around a USB cable or charger.
Final Thoughts
The N900 is an impressive, well-thought out phone aimed at the power user crowd. What’s sad is that, with a couple of minor changes to the operating system, Nokia could’ve had a serious consumer hit on their hands. Instead, the N900 is destined to play second banana to the iPhone and the slew of new Android phones. It’s really too bad – for the price (roughly around $500 USD), you get a powerful smartphone that’s not only capable of everything (minus the fart apps), it’s capable of doing everything at the same time with ease. Multi-tasking at its best.
Random pet peeve: Nokia put a new kind of stock display protector on the N900, one that completely obscures everything beneath it. So if you’re buying a N900, make sure you get a screen protector too. I recommend Brando’s Ultra-Clear line.

Sony Ericsson’s New Technology, Project Capuchin, Bridges Java™ ME and Adobe® Flash Lite™

Sony Ericsson’s New Technology, Project Capuchin, Bridges Java™ ME and Adobe® Flash Lite™
30 April 2008
from Sony Ericsson Official Website)

Enables fast and clean user interface development for both graphical designers and code developers

Stockholm, Sweden â€" April 30, 2008 â€" Sony Ericsson Mobile Communication today announced plans to release a new technology that, for the first time, bridges the Abobe® Flash Liteâ„¢ and Java MEâ„¢ development platforms. The new technology and tools, referred to as Project Capuchin, make it possible to combine the richness of Flash Lite and Java ME technologies allowing developers to utilize the best attributes of both software stacks to create content-rich mobile applications. Sony Ericsson has plans to make the technology available during the second half of 2008 and will demonstrate Project Capuchin enabled applications at the JavaOne Developer Event in San Francisco, May 6 â€" 9, booth 718 in the Pavilion.

“Sony Ericsson is excited to introduce our new bridging technology to the global developer community as it further strengthens our relationship with this community and underscores our ongoing commitment to support an open, healthy and thriving mobile ecosystem,” said Rikko Sakaguchi, SVP and Head of Portfolio and Proposition at Sony Ericsson. “We are dedicated to exploring opportunities that enable us to provide innovative and energized user experiences. To achieve this, we work with world class partners and technologies, on both platform and product development.”

Project Capuchin will provide developers with an intuitive tool to create applications with a cleaner user interface (UI) without sacrificing the strong, feature rich and widely deployed Java ME infrastructure, including secure, well-developed content distribution. Project Capuchin’s bridging software will empower two distinct developer communities to leverage their respective expertises to create the next generation of highly engaging and immersive mobile content.

“Adobe is pleased to support Sony Ericsson’s Project Capuchin. Using Adobe Flash technology as one part of this new bridging technology will ensure further innovation for mobile users when Flash developers gain access to the Java applications’ functionality and intelligence allowing them to create applications with the ultimate user experience,” said Gary Kovacs, general manager and vice president for Mobile and Devices at Adobe. “It is encouraging to see Sony Ericsson’s intention in making the technology available to the wider community.”

Project Capuchin will allow pure Flash Lite content to be encapsulated in Java ME applications with the help of Sony Ericsson Developer World tools, making content created by Adobe Flash technology appear as Java ME applications.

More advanced capabilities will allow Flash Lite technology to handle an entire presentation layer and make it possible to create Java ME applications where some or all UI components are defined in Flash.
