MultitasKING – N82


I currently am trialling a Nokia N82 and so far I am thrilled with the device; more on that later. Lets cut to the real deal now, as you may be aware the N95 is my primary phone and with the latest v20 firmware it allows me to multi task to a lets say decent extent. It is not something I would settle with but something that gets the job done.

Enter the N82, as usual the first thing I did was use Switch to get all my stuff over, download the absolute essentials like Gmail and Maps and generally set it up. Since I am somewhat obsessed with RAM conservation I decided to install Device Status and see for myself how much rope to I have to play with, on launch may be with one other application running I had about 86 MB which is beautiful, certainly the way all S60 phones should go.

As a practical test I decided to see how useful can all that RAM be, I am pleased to say that not only is it useful but it will also satisfy the geek in you. I actually ran each and every application I had on the phone including Web, Music Player, Ngage, two Gmail clients (for the java), another game, basically everything and not one crashed or the phone hung. Have a look at the screenshots and see for yourself!

Multitasking: Multiple Windows In The S60 Browser

The user manual for the N95 says that it can open multiple windows in the browser but even after three firmwares I am yet to see that option materialise. However what the latest v20 firmware has done, is give the N95 a decent ammount of free RAM. Under the old circumstances I never really dreamed of managing multiple windows on the browser, however things have changed and we are in a position to do so. I sucessfully opened four websites including AAS, Symbian-Guru, WOM World, The Symbian Blog. When I tried opening the heaviest of them all Intomobile, it did load but after a while the other four crashed! However the max anyone will open is about theree, which is just fine.

Four Windows Open

For the other devices too, such as the N82, N81 and the others with decent ammount of RAM already, multiple windows on high speed wifi/3G connections is something practical. There are two methods I have been using to open multiple windows, here’s a rundown of both of them.
