38% of MIR readers want an updated 2012 version of the Nokia N95

I’m having a lot of fun with the Urtak ‘collaborative survey’ that I added early this morning. Some of the results are rather stimulating! What’s fascinating about the Urtak functionality is that readers can add their own questions at the end. We started off with my generic 10 mobile ones and we’ve now got another […]

My Nokia N95 8GB battery has gone rubbish – I need a new one. What is your recommendation for a place to buy Nokia batteries online?

ShoZu Video Of The Day

Ah hah, today we’ve got a video and not a photo. Mobile Industry Review reader, Jared, took pity on us on Monday morning and sent us in this video via ShoZu. You know we got a paltry inch of snow here in the UK that day? And I took a video of a poor chap […]

N95 8GB: Phone start-up failed. Contact the retailer.

Ah dear. I dug out my N95 8GB the other day and charged it up. I was going to try and use the device more – as a camera (because if you recall it arrived from T-Mobile UK without data functioning). Well. I can’t use it. Not at the moment. I’ve never seen this message […]

S60 Application Reviews

They are still happening, it’s just that I smashed my phone screen in my pocket the other week hence the reason for no updates. I should have my trusty N95 back with me tomorrow, so we should be back on schedule for a new review on Friday. As ever, if you are an application developer […]

N95 8GB on T-Mobile won’t connect. Still.

I picked up my N95 8GB yesterday. It’s been gathering dust and I thought I’d take it with me to this presentation I was giving later in the evening. It was only when I got on to the train and had a fiddle with the device that I remembered: Arse. It’s a disabled piece of […]

Mobile Networks… You’ll never cease to amaze me!

I’m being serious here. Since my time here as Mobile Industry Review I’ve read hundreds of news articles on the latest goings on with the mobile industry. Yes a lot of the so called news is terribly “boring”, but every now and then, I have to sit back laugh, and ask “why”? Ricky kindly sent […]

We can’t get the basics correct. We simply can’t!

Here, then, is yet another depressing illustration of how screwed the mobile industry is. It doesn’t matter how enterprising you’d like to be, or how innovative you’re mobile developers are, or how many 80 hour weeks you’re working away… if I can’t access your services on my device, then you don’t exist. But, at least, […]

That N95 ain’t half bad, is it?

I was peering through my laptop last night. I’d come to a temporary halt setting up my office at my new place — I thought I had everything: Wires, plugs, monitors, computer CPUs, keyboard, mouse and what not. But I forgot a chair. Smart. So I headed back to the sofa and flicked through the […]

I just bought an N95 8GB on T-Mobile

So, I went through a spate of mobile purchasing last night. The iPhone, yeah. And then T-Mobile. Well, I feel it is my mobile-industry duty to have a handset on every network. I’ve got the UK covered and I have a dormant $10/month Sprint account in the States, too. (Since they’re CDMA, their devices obviously […]
