TeleNav GPS arrives on the E62

TeleNav GPS arrives on the E62

One of the more annoying features of the Garmin sat-nav unit I use is its unwillingness to put up with my human foibles.  Spelling mistakes, mis-pressed letters, all are held against me, and the Nuvi's main method of punishment is saying something along the lines of "that location doesn't exist, you moron."  Thankfully the TeleNav software, which Cingular has today announced for the Nokia E62 smartphone, has so-called "Fuzzy Search", seemingly detecting and filling in addresses according to current or commonly-used locations, as well as automatically correcting for mistakes in spelling or name-structure.  Check out further details after the cut.

QWERTY Shakedown, E62 versus Dash – Fight! Fight! Fight!

QWERTY Shakedown, E62 versus Dash – Fight! Fight! Fight!

I love a good cellphone Battle Royale - two cocky, amped up handsets enter the ring and then, with a fair spritzing of delicate electronics being scattered left right and centre, only one emerges, sweaty and triumphant.  Or perhaps it's Pro American Wrestling I like, and am having to make do with infoSync pitting the T-Mobile Dash against Cingular's Nokia E62 (you can see our own review here). 

In an eight round match, the QWERTY-pair are tested on their design, messaging abilities and multimedia skills amongst others - you'll just have to read the article to see which comes out on top.

Vaja E61 case reviewed

Vaja E61 case reviewed

So you've impressed your friends, family and even yourself with your new Nokia E61.  They marvel at its thumb keyboard, gasp at its bright, clear screen, coo with appreciative glee at the slick menus and operation.

And then you drop it on the floor and it gets a ruddy great scratch across it.  All of a sudden, nobody invites you to parties anymore.  Elderly women spit at you in the street.

Andrew Liszewski is a lucky E61 owner and also pretty damn careful about not letting his cellular pride and joy come to any harm.  Having stored it in an old iPaq case at first, he has eventually given it the respect it deserves and invested in a Vaja leather case.

Is it any good?  Is $60 a ridiculous amount of money to spend on a case?  Do sheep have hidden compartments where they store knitting needles?  Two of these questions are answered in Andrew's lovely review.

Unboxing the Nokia E70 Smartphone

Unboxing the Nokia E70 Smartphone

While it’s still very early to provide an accurate feedback on the Nokia E70 smartphone, I do want to say a few things. The split keyboard is somewhat of an acquired taste. Similar to sushi, once you’re hooked on it; you’re pretty much hooked. However, I prefer the full time availability of the keyboard on the E61 (click to watch the unboxing of the Nokia E61). The other BIG difference that creates the urge to run back to the E61 is the screen size. The screen size on the E70 is much smaller, compared to the E61 . Nonetheless, the screen is still very beautiful and the text is super clear. I’m annoyed by the very limited shared memory allocated to the web browser. For a super smartphone with WiFi, there’s just not enough memory for browsing. I’m definitely going to contact Nokia to get an explanation on this. Click over to watch the unboxing video.

Spotify Mobile for S60 released

Spotify Mobile for S60 released

Streaming music-on-demand service Spotify threw the radio cat among the Nokia pigeons back in September, when it announced a S60 mobile client was on the way.  It's taken a few months, but now that client has been released, bringing Spotify to more than thirty devices running the S60 OS; that's not just Nokia handsets, either, since Spotify have made the necessary tweaks to get the app running on some S60 devices from other companies, such as the Samsung Omnia HD and the Sony Ericsson Satio.
