Nokia N8 starts shipping

Nokia N8 starts shipping

Nokia's N8 has begun shipping, and you do get the feeling from the company's tersely-titled press release (which you can read after the cut) that they're getting no small amount of satisfaction from proving wrong the naysayers who predicted lengthy delays.  To be fair, as we heard previously, you'll have had to be among the first batch of pre-order customers if you want to get your N8 smartish; Nokia says there'll be "broad availability" over the coming weeks.

After our initial hands-on with the N900 - the video and gallery of which you can see here - we spent some more time playing with the Maemo 5 smartphone at Nokia World this week.  Our initial enthusiasm has been tempered a little by some of the real-world compromises that blending a smartphone and an Internet Tablet demand, though we're still looking forward to a full review unit; check out our hands-on impressions after the cut.

Nokia Mobile Millennium GPS traffic monitoring project seeking volunteers

Nokia Mobile Millennium GPS traffic monitoring project seeking volunteers

Nokia is preparing to begin a large-scale traffic monitoring project called Mobile Millennium, for which it will invite up to 10,000 members of the public to provide anonymous GPS tracking data through their cellphones.  The first stage of a plan to provide real-time traffic information throughout cities rather than just on main routes, Mobile Millennium is being partly sponsored by the US Department of Transportation; it relies on a small Java app that both anonymously submits GPS data as well as receives amalgamated congestion updates.

Self-driving cars could save $450bn a year and 90% injuries says thinktank

Self-driving cars could save $450bn a year and 90% injuries says thinktank

Self-driving cars could cut crash and road injury rates by 90-percent and save the US economy by around $450bn each year, a new thinktank report suggests, though the technology risks being hamstrung by expensive components and a "disparate patchwork" of regulations. The independent research by the Eno Center for Transportation into autonomous vehicles such as Google's self-driving cars and similar projects from Nissan, Toyota, Mercedes and others argues that, since driver error is calculated to be the primary reason behind more than 90-percent of crashes, removing humans from their responsibility behind the wheel could save a huge amount of lives and money.
