Nokia today launches the latest C5 device, an inexpensive touchscreen smartphone with a couple of neat features that may well pique your interest if you want a new device that’s simple to use but covers all of the essentials for modern-day phones.

The device has a 3.2″ touch display and features Wi-Fi. It also has a compass and assisted GPS for use with the latest version of the free Ovi Maps hands-free navigation service, now featuring public transport support and location sharing through social networks.

The C5 has a 5-megapixel camera with 4X digital zoom, but no flash. It’s a bit smaller than the Nokia N8 or C7. It comes with up to 40MB of user memory and support for MicroSD cards up to 16GB. The talktime is quoted at 11.5 hours for GSM use and 4.5 hours using 3G. Standby time is estimated at 24-25 days. The operating system is Symbian^1 (aka. S60 5th edition touch-edition).

Remember my post about Whatsapp Messenger a while ago?

Whatsapp Messenger which is very famous among iPhone and Blackberry users, has now expanded their service to the Symbian platform! It works like BBM on Blackberrys whereby users can chat among each other (now with people on other platforms) for free! Messages are sent using wifi/3G.

It’s an ALWAYS ON application like SMS. You don’t need to sign in to anything at all. Messages just comes like how you receive SMS.

The download link for Symbian devices is up on their site. Click to http://www.whatsapp.com/download/ and click on Nokia.

Here’s how the interface looks like.

For your information, currently Symbian users can only send text to friends. Transfer of images, audio and location is only available for iPhone and Blackberry (transfer images only).

Once installed, the app will look for other Whatsapp users from your phonebook and display them in the “favourites” list in your Whatsapp. You can then chat with them.

Tips:
- If you want to chat with your friend, make sure you have their phone numbers saved in your phonebook or else they will not appear in your favourite list.
- The app does not quit/close. It stays ON forever. This means it will keep consuming data (wifi/3G) so make sure you have unlimited data package or it will cost you a bomb.

Go download WHATSAPP for Symbian now! Remember to tell your Nokia, iPhone and Blackberry friends about this app so we don’t need to SMS one another anymore!

Negri Electronics has recently posted a video of them handling a prototype from Nokia that looks very much like the upcoming Nokia N8 but with full QWERTY keyboard. Since Nokia has announced that the N8 will be the last Nseries to be powered by Symbian, could this just be the E7… or C7? Soon we will find out.

For now, check out this video that shows off the multiple ports available on the device (including a HDMI port), the keyboard, homescreen widget, browser and the slider screen mechanism.

From what we can see, the screen seems to be a 4incher.. and has probably a 640×480px resolution screen. I like how thin it is for a device with slide out QWERTY and the look of the keyboard is very nice too. Did you notice the 8mpx camera in the video? Hope it shoots 720p HD and that would be sweet.

Nokia just announced the new X5 at the current Nokia Connections event at Singapore and woah.. I did not expect it to look like this.

It’s a squarish smartphone with slide-out QWERTY keyboard. It is running S60v3 Feature Pack 2, and has “Comes with Music” service. The X5 has a 5megapixels camera too. Price is about 185 Euro before tax.

This is how the slide out keyboard looks like. I personally don’t like the appearance of the phone. Somehow it reminds of the Microsoft Kin 1.

Check out this video I found on youtube.

What do you think of the X5?
Do you like how it looks?
Are you looking forward to own one?

Do leave a comment and let us know.

Symbian users! Ever wished you can send text messages to your friends for free? Wouldn’t it be great if you can chat with your friends on iPhone and Blackberry for free? Soon you can!

Whatsapp Messenger which is very famous among iPhone and Blackberry users now, will be expanding their service to Symbian platform soon!

According to them, “WhatsApp Messenger is a smartphone messaging app which allows you to exchange messages with your friends and contacts without having to pay for SMS. WhatsApp Messenger is cross platform and is currently available for iPhone and BlackBerry and yes, iPhones and BlackBerries can message each other too! To send and receive messages, WhatsApp utilizes your existing smartphone internet data plan: 3G/EDGE (or Wi-Fi when available)”

Got the hang of it yet? I am one of the beta testers of the app for Symbian and I can say that it’s working very well even at beta stage. Check out some screenshots I took on my Nokia X6.

The app has to be connected to the Internet in order to work. Users can choose to connect to Wifi or 3G. Upon launching Whatsapp for the first time, we need to register our phone number so that your friends can see you in their Whatsapp contact list automatically.

The main menu of the app has 4 sections;

- Chats [all your chat sessions with your friends]
- Favourties [your chatable contacts... Wthe app automatically searches your phonebook for Whatsapp users]
- Contacts [your full phonebook contacts]
- Status [you can change your status to let your friends know if you are free to talk or not]

[LEFT] Status screen, you can select one of the preset statuses or set your own.
[RIGHT] List of conversations with your friends.

FYI, Whatsapp is “always-on”. That means there is no way to quit the app. It is always on cos it tries to mimic SMS… which is always available. You do not need to login to chat. Everytime you get a message, you will see a popup on the screen.

Whatsapp will soon be available in the OVI Store. Wait for it cos it is the most awesome thing to happen on mobile phones.

Nokia just announced a new device powered by the new Symbian^3 platform, the Nokia N8. It is launched with a new breed of camera to compete with the current point and shoot digicams in the market.

From the specs, I’d say that this Nokia N8 is the best Nokia camera device ever as it comes with a 12-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics and Xenon flash. The camera sensor is larger than most of the sensors in current camera phones and also digicams out there, so expect photos with good noise control from this new N8.

The N8 can also capture HD videos at 720p and has the ability to edit them within the device itself. Watching videos is also great on the 3.5″ HD capacitive touchscreen. This is the first Nokia device to have HDMI output to you can plug it to your HDTVs to share photos and videos with your friends. Other than that, the experience of watching videos on the N8 is also different as it has Dolby Digital Plus surround sound and is ablt to hook into a dedicated Web TV application for access to news and entertainment on the move.

The N8 also has messaging and social networks features. Access live feeds from your Twitter and Facebook accounts from the homscreen itself. You will be able to comment, reach and post photos and statuses with one touch. As usual, the N8 comes with free global Ovi Maps walk and drive navigation with support in more than 70 countries worldwide.

The Symbian^3 powering the N8, is a new and enhanced version of the current Symbian OS and it now supports gestures and multitouch like pinch to zoom. Other enhancements are; 3 customizable homescreens, improved 2D and 3D graphics for faster and more responsive UI.

The N8 comes with 5 eye catching colours and will cost about €370 before tax and subsidies. The Nokia N8 is expected to ship in the 3rd quarter of 2010.

Stay tuned for more into on Nokia N8!

NOKIA E5

I like this one. A new addition to the E series, combining all the good stuff from E71 and E72. The E5 is made for people who doesnt like charging their phones. Why? Cos the E5 comes with 18 hours and 30 minutes talk time (in GSM mode) and 29 days standby time.

Facebook updates are merged into your phonebook contact list so you can see what is everyone doing at that time. The E5 also comes with full messaging and chat features like the other messaging devices above.
