S60 Google Maps on N95 Rocks

April 24, 2008
By

I my recent post “N95 GPS Revisited”, I mentioned that I’d be trying and reporting on the new native Symbian S60 version of Google Maps as an alternative to the pre-loaded Nokia mapping application. Well, in short, the Google app blows the Nokia one away, IMHO. It finally makes the GPS function of the N95…

Alec’s iPhone experience

March 26, 2008

Alec Saunders has a terrific post: iPhone: Brilliant. Frustrating. Alec has pretty much echoed my sentiments described at iPhone – Look but don’t touch and summarized beautifully with “I want to love this phone – it’s that good” but in the end he can’t due to its limitations, saying “The iPhone has the most potential…

As many reading here know, I’ve been using an N95 for some time now. After one day with the iPhone, here are some first impressions.

I have a fair amount of experience with GPS devices, going back over more than 10 years. My first device was an Eagle Explorer (I still have it) and I’ve used countless GPS systems since. I also developed a GPS-based vehicle tracking system. So I can speak with some authority on the technology. Compared head-to-head…

Straight talk on the Nokia N95

I’ve been using the N95 for a few weeks now. I moved from the N80i so this is my second shot at a Nokia wi-fi enabled phone. In a lot of ways the N95 is big a improvement over the N80i (which I review here). It’s MUCH lighter, thinner, and has a bigger screen. It…
