Sony Ericsson P5i - rumour or true smartphone?


The long-rumoured Sony Ericsson smartphone might be here sooner than expected. After a photoshop image trying to sketch the phone, now we can see something maybe more real, or maybe it's another photoshopped image.

N810 with WiMax finally announced



The ultimate move in WiMax would be big corporates making their products public. This is the case with Nokia, I have seen little publicity from networks about the new wireless technology, but once Nokia pushes them, we will see some useful growth in them. The Nokia N810 WiMAX Edition is expected to be available in the United States during the summer of 2008, and had been leaked long time ago as Nokia N830.

Nokia transforms people into traffic reporters

That's quite a drastic title, but it's the essence of the experiment.

The news isn't that new either, but I just found a video of the experiment thanks to kerni from Symbian-Freak.

Watch the video here

Nokia has partnered with UC Berkeley researchers, and invited 100 drivers to use a N95's GPS and drive 10 miles (16km)  near a highway in San Francisco, the N95s will report back to servers, which will produce data and a GPS feed for the devices to report if there is a traffic congestion, or even accidents. Many users might consider this as a hit against their privacy, but I don't believe that the servers are in any way connected to CIA's headquarters.
