i dont own a windows pc, i have a stupid mac powerbook which i would repalec with nokia futuure netbook.
When can i updatee over the air fota?
Or you maybe kind enough to introduce mac verasion ovi suite for mac users
One day suddently my N97 stopped sending messages, although I had not changed any settings. Even checked the message settings etc, changed SIM/operator, factory reset but that didnt fix the problem, the message will simply not go through and stay in Outbox. Nokia really need to fix their software for such an expensive phone along with making it faster. Useless without messaging.
hi frendz i updated my n97 yesterday now it kinetic scrolling is grate just like iphone.update your device and enjoy...........
[deleted post]Why does it throw away the formulas????
I TRY to write:
F * SQRT(N) < W
N < ( W * W ) / ( F * F )
Hope it worked this time!!!

or put otherwise
The lens in the N97 mini is a F2.8/5.4mm
So if you want a 12Mpixel sensor with F2.8, then the sensor should be AT LEAST 9.7m wide. This is not very unrealistic in a body with lower half under 11mm thick, including lens and keyboard, and thus optics with focal length of only 5.4mm ...
The 5Mpixels corresponds to a 6.3mm width limit. And I doubt that it is even that wide, but I do not know the actual size.
There IS a reason for the annoyingly protruding camera-part. Every mm helps, allowing a larger focal length and thus wider sensor width, and thus more megapixels....
Personally I would GLADLY settle for a 3Mpixel camera if I could have had the camera not being protruded.
5800, 02 Feb 2010So right it's like people that care about more mp's are stil gonna complain if there phone is ... moreYes exactly! Personally I would much prefer 3Mp with good picture quality than 12Mp of noisy pictures.
And this is NOT the same as we don't care whether there are a camera or not.
But we are putting this tread out of topic. The discussion should be held elsewhere...
There are quite simple laws of physics between the F-number of the lens, the size of the sensor in mm W, and the number of megapixels N, that (due to a numeric coincidence) can be reduced to the very simple and easy to remember rule:
Nokia please be serious
the v30 major update must add skype voip in contacts. I am serious now, if not i am gonna make a bad press about nokia in front of espoo headquarter buliding:(
next thing nokia needs to do with symbian is to add vlc player to symbian, multtitouch support, and simplify the ui and hide the unimportant/advanced features in symbian
hope you guys there listen to my advices

Anonymous, 02 Feb 2010Don't be naive... many, many people care about the camera feature on their cellphones today.when your knowledges of smartphone grow.. your interest of camera features is getting less.
You pay more attention on 'juicier' specs and readily sacrifice the camera (but still 5MP is the benchmark, at least for me).
anyway, when will the firmware update going to bring multitouch support?
it keeps on scrolling, scrolling and scrolling--- so much scrolling that it at times comes out of my phone and lands up on my desk.
Thank you stupid Nokia...
can someone enlighten me on what exactly is kinetic scrolling.
i read about it on some websites but didn't get it!

Anonymous, 02 Feb 2010An yet motorola makes much less than Nokia, SE has 8 and 12 MP phones and is still lossing mon... morewell just so you know. alot of people actually do care about the camera on their phone. i find it quite strange that you would refer to 8mp and 12mp cameras. yet in the next sentence say that they dont matter. untrue. the nokia n85 and n86 is a good example. at the time, if you looked around enough you would be able to buy a n85 for around $350 but you could also find a n86 for the cheapest price probably being $550. see ? a 200 dollar difference for a phone thats only difference is its 8mp camera, compared to a 5mp one....
Yeah it's quite great. my scrolling is faster like 5800 XM but i've concern aboout GPS navigation. I cant connect to it, can i use my GPS without internet or offline mode because i dont have internet in my N97. please help me out
Anonymous, 02 Feb 2010Exact! Nothing new at nokia. No 8 or12 mp,no hd video,no divx,xvid playback. Motorola now is b... moreAn yet motorola makes much less than Nokia, SE has 8 and 12 MP phones and is still lossing money, Samsung's mobile division has 8 and 12 MP phones as well and it doesn't come close to Nokia.
Your stupidity is great if you think most people actually care about their cellphone's camera.
I hope this fixes the back option on the music player, for now most of the time when you are playing a song and want to go back to the album view, you press back and find your self out of the music player nad on the home screen of the mobile! I remember it was better before the 188.8.131.52 update
josh, 02 Feb 2010why is everybody falling for the "megapixel myth" megapxels dosnt mean its better, m... moreYou are SO right in trying to stop this nonsense!!
I wrote a lengthy piece on this here (unfortunately in danish, but the formulas at tables should still be clear)
The main conclusion that is interesting in this context is the PHYSICAL limit:
F * √N < W
Where N is number of sensors in megapixels, W is the total sensor width, and F is the F-number for the lens-system. (Limit is for red light).
