Ovi Store rolls out in early beta form on the Nokia N900

I posted my full review of the Nokia N900 a couple weeks ago and mentioned that there were ways to get some applications on the device through different Application Catalogs. I popped my SIM in the other day and found a new firmware update available followed by activation of the Ovi Store link on the device. Tapping on the Ovi Store icon takes you to the store.ovi.mobi site in the web browser. This is the beta version of the Ovi Store that actually recognizes you are on the N900 and only shows you applications that are designed to work with the Nokia N900. By my count, there are currently 31 applications, 11 games, 33 audio/video pieces of content, and 9 themes.

Intel Atom Developer's Program beta SDK now available

I have a MSI Wind loaded up with Windows 7 Ultimate and find it to be a very good mobile solution that gives me good battery life and is easy to carry in my bag. I may actually sell it soon and pick up a Nokia Booklet 3G, especially after reading Michael's four reasons to buy one. There have been arguments for and against the netbook idea, but it is hard to argue that they are not successful with forecasts predicting more than 50 million Intel-based units may be sold by the end of this year. Intel recognizes the netbooks are here to stay and to foster that adoption they announced that developers can submit applications created with the help of the Intel Atom Developer's Program SDK.

One of the VoIP applications I have loaded on several devices is fring and I was pleased to read today that Skype and fring video calls are now supported on select Symbian S60 devices. fring video is currently supported on the Nokia X6, N97 mini, N97, 5800, N95, N95 8G and N82 devices. I have an N97 mini and will have to load up the latest version of fring and test out this new capability.

Qik finally gets an official iPhone video application in the App Store

Qik is a live video streaming service with mobile applications for BlackBerry, Nokia and Windows Mobile devices. There was a version for Qik a year or so ago for jailbroken iPhones, but they have not been able to get a version up on the App Store until now. As you can read in their announcement blog post you are not yet able to live stream, but you can record a video (with your iPhone 3GS) and then have it uploaded automatically if you are connected to a WiFi network. A version for 3G uploads has been submitted for approval so an update should be coming soon.

Dead Finger Tech: T-Mobile G1 Google Android smartphone

Many of the ZDNet tech bloggers have been writing about their Dead Finger Tech for a special August feature. I have owned over 100 mobile devices, most of them phones, and thus you would think I have one or two favorites that I could consider as DFT devices. My iPhone 3GS is getting more and more useful as applications like Quickoffice improve functionality for me and my Nokia E71x is my top Nokia star. However, my T-Mobile G1 is the device I consider as my DFT mobile phone for a few reasons I will explain below.

Four available phone application stores; who has the best terms?

There were a few server issues with the launch of the Nokia Ovi Store yesterday, but after a bit things started running smoothly and the launch was quite successful considering 50 million Nokia owners had access to the Ovi Store in a single day. However, after spending a few hours with the Ovi Store I think there are several issues that will have me just sticking to the free applications for now because the Ovi Store is not as flexible or user friendly as the Apple App Store, Android Market, or BlackBerry App World. Let's take a look at the support for multiple re-installs, multiple devices, and returns of applications to see where the Nokia Ovi Store fails in almost all cases.

Nokia opens the Ovi Store across the globe

Apple set the bar with the first usable application store on the iPhone and then BlackBerry followed with BlackBerry App World. Nokia now joins the party with the official announcement that the Ovi Store is open. It started rolling out this weekend in Asia and has now spread across the world. As I detailed in my Nokia Experts post the Ovi Store is available and accessible for US Nokia owners right now on at least the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic device. Applications are available for free and priced starting at 99 cents. The most expensive one I have found so far is $19.99, but there is much more investigation to take place now that the Ovi Store is available.

Gravity gives you the best Twitter experience on a mobile phone

Surprisingly, there has not yet been a dedicated (non-Java) Twitter client for the S60 platform even though S60 leads the world in market share. There was a very tightly controlled private beta of Gravity going on for a month or so, but I didn't get a chance to try it myself. This morning Gravity went public and I immediately downloaded and installed it on my Nokia 5800 XpressMusic device. After about an hour of usage I can say this application gives me the BEST Twitter experience on a mobile device. I have tried several iPhone and Windows Mobile applications, but find the speed, animations, functionality, multiple client support, and more to be so much better on the 5800.

Best free apps for smartphones

I subscribe to a couple of actual magazines and was just reading through Laptop this past weekend and found a very helpful article that I though readers here may enjoy. I am a major 3rd party application fan on my mobile devices and enjoyed reading the Best Free Smartphone Apps article in the magazine. You can view an online version of the article that also includes some recommend priced applications for the iPhone, Windows Mobile, and BlackBerry platforms. I posted my own S60 best apps on Nokia Experts to complete the mobile platform roundup.

MWC 09: Nokia and Adobe announce $10 million Open Source Project fund

One of the first things people generally ask about when you mention mobile web browsers is, Does it support Flash? Today, very limited support for Flash content is provided on mobile web browsers, but the new Nokia devices do have Flash Lite support. Nokia and Adobe made a joint announcement at Mobile World Congress for the $10 million Open Source Project fund that is designed to help developers create applications and services for mobile, desktop, and consumer electronics devices using the Adobe Flash Platform. This new fund is part of the Open Screen Project, which has more than 20 industry partners.

MWC 09: Nokia and Skype announce partnership, fring wins award and gives you Skype now on S60

There are currently a few applications on Nokia S60 devices that let you use Skype, such as fring, iSkoot, and Skype Lite, but there has not yet been an official full Skype client on S60 devices yet. Skype Lite works with the cellular network and Skype Out to provide you with limited service. Today Nokia and Skype announced a partnership that will bring Skype to Nokia devices, starting with the Nseries and in particular the N97. This won't happen until the 3rd quarter of 2009. fring gives you Skype access now on S60 devices.

MWC 09: Nokia announces S60 application store, Ovi Store, with social location feature

Third party applications have been available for Palm, Windows Mobile, S60, and BlackBerry devices for years, but it wasn't until Apple made the iPhone App Store such a huge success that companies finally woke up to the potential market that was out there. It really is a shame that one of these companies never took the initiative to create an application store and now they are all announcing one, again following Apple's lead. Some of the best news I have seen so far from Mobile World Congress is the announcement regarding the upcoming Ovi Store by Nokia.

Will Nokia use Linux in future high end phones?

According to a Reuters report from Nokia World in Barcelona, Nokia is open to the idea of using Linux on their high end phones. A Linux Maemo distribution is used now on their N810 Internet Tablet and it is quite a powerful solution. I enjoy using the N810, except for the seemingly slow responsiveness in some applications. Currently, Nokia uses its S60 implementation on their high end phones.
