Nokia Legends: Submit A Legend & Win Yourself A E71

A while ago ago we brought you news of Nokia Legends, a website that gives us an insight into some of the very cool and futuristic technologies that Nokia is currently working on. Not only that, it has a set of seven killer videos which talk about various legends based around them. A little while ago Nokia also had a Q&A around some of these technologies like NFC and Indoor Positioning and it seems they are not done innovating yet.

Here’s a heads up specially for you, at the end of this week a competition will go live on the website which will invite legends based around the kind of mobile technology you’d like to see from Nokia in the future. Your entries/legends may be inspired by the videos and legends on the site or be completely your creation.

The best part is about this competition is that with this you can not only tell Nokia what you would like your mobile phone to do but also win yourself a Nokia E71 and get the legend published on the website in case you win. So there it is, you have the information in advance – put your thinking caps on and be ready when the competition goes live.

New ‘Receiving Via Bluetooth’ Notification On The N85

New Incoming Notification - Share on Ovi New Incoming Notification - Share on Ovi

As you know I’ve recently gotten the N85 and as part of setting it up to my liking, I was sending across a few applications. It was then that I noticed something that I never had on any S60 earlier. There was a progress bar notifying me of the status of the file that was being sent in. Not only that, I could cancel the incoming if I so chose or simply choose to send it into the background.

Such a notification although common for other handsets has never been seen (to my knowledge) on a S60 so far. I immediately pulled out my N96 running the v12 firmware to see if this was being rolled out across all FP2 devices, apparently not.

Earlier, if two devices were paired & authorised and one of them initiated a transfer the only way to stop it from the recipient’s side was turning the BT off, however no more, at least on the N85. This screen takes a couple of seconds to pop up after the transfer starts and during that time no data gets transferred, at least not according to the windows progress bar.

Have you seen it on any other S60 device?

The N85 Through The N96's Eyes

Its that time of the week when pictures speak lounder than words. So here is a collection of unboxing pictures of the Nokia N85, also included are comparison shots with Nokia’s other slider Nseries devices such as the N96 and the N95. The pictures have been taken with a Nokia N96 indoors using the close-up mode, so you should also get an idea of how it performs with the latest v12 firmware.
