I want one of the new Symbian based touchscreen phone Nokia 5800, Samsung Omnia HD or Sony Ericsson Idou, But Nokia has stopped me buying one of these, it is only a small problem that could be fixed if Nokia would only listen to users, the problem is the menu/contact scrolling it is completely illogical, this would totally frustrate any user.
Please Nokia issue a firmware fix & change for the next version.
Nokia phns battery are knwn 2b d durable product in time of talking time,expecially d expensive ones,now,they don't last a day.pls,try work on ur battry.
Regarding the Apple Patents on iPhone, will that means we NOKIAN will never have Pinch, Spread and Flick Scroll on Nokia resistive touch ever? I know there is a new technology which can let resistive touch screen users do Pinch, Spread and Flick Scroll. Will Nokia not implement this in OS due to being sued by Apple?
iPhone have iPhone Dev Team whose Cydia and Installous can turn iPhone into an almost PERFECT phone. Drakkarious is a piece of software which can install unsigned softwares on Symbian.
Will we hack the N97 Firmaware in order to implement Multitouch(Pinch, Spread and Flick Scrolling) in Nokia Firmaware to turn N97 the ULTIMATE AND THE BEST EVER phone in the world?
If Not, at least implement multitouch in browser and photo viewing porgram!!!!!
If nokia won;t do it, it should be the work of Symbian Hacker!!!!

What is Resistive Touchscreen?
Resistive touchscreens are composed of two flexible sheets coated with a resistive material and separated by an air gap or microdots. When contact is made to the surface of the touchscreen, the two sheets are pressed together, registering the precise location of the touch.
For example, during operation of a four-wire touchscreen, a uniform, unidirectional voltage gradient is applied to the first sheet. When the two sheets are pressed together, the second sheet measures the voltage as distance along the first sheet, providing the X coordinate. When this contact coordinate has been acquired, the uniform voltage gradient is applied to the second sheet to ascertain the Y coordinate. This operation occurs instantaneously, registering the exact touch location as contact is made.
Resistive touchscreens typically have high resolution (4096 x 4096 DPI or higher), providing accurate touch control. Because the touchscreen responds to pressure on its surface, contact can be made with a finger or any other pointing device.
The iPhone is based on "multi-touch technology," which allows for the many interesting touch screen interface operations. While many manufacturers are working on this technology, Apple is the first to bring it to market. Operations such as the slider and "flick" scrolling are examples. What is "flick" scrolling, you ask? If you are in the phone mode, looking at a list of your contacts, just take your finger and "flick" up or down on the screen, and the contacts list scrolls up or down, at a speed determined by the thrust of your flick. Imagine watching a video slot machine in Vegas - it's that kinda thing. Another interesting use of the multi-touch is when you are viewing a web page or a photo. If you want to enlarge what you are looking at, take your thumb and forefinger and place them on the screen as if you are squeezing, and expand them. The image enlarges. Bring them back together (think "pinch"), and the image reduces. It is really cool, and a totally effective way to surf or navigate photos or Google maps, for example.
what is the answer from nokia?
Anonymous, 01 Mar 2009Nokia still uses the scrollbar in n97 instead of flick scroll in ipod touch?
Why nokia? Tha... moreWhy?
Because Nokia doesn't want to be sued by Apple for copying their patented work, just like pinch to zoom.
Nokia still uses the scrollbar in n97 instead of flick scroll in ipod touch?
Why nokia? That makes it hard to browse the long page!
Flick scrolling on resistive touch? Possible?
Flick scrolling in n97?
Flick scrolling instead of scrolling bar!
