New additions to Nokia family

Some interesting new handsets coming from Nokia announced today - N70, N73 and the N91 all get a music makeover edition in black, with the N91 getting an 8gb hard drive... plus the fabulous N95 is on it's way.

Luckily had the chance to view this device a couple of weeks ago and it seems impressive... I'm particularly interested to see if they have fixed the N73 photo software compression issues with this 5 megapixel device...plus how quick will HSDPA be in reality for functions like browsing...

There are some other announcements I'm sure Nokia will make at their annual consumer and business conference regards the latest devicesat the end of November.. watch this space.. Nokia's tagline for their announcement today was "Convergence without compromise"... can you see yourself using just one multimedia device for web browsing, music, imaging , self-locating and mapping ? If so the N95 and the Sony Ericsson P990 seem a first step towards that world...

Couple of Microsoft links

Microsoft jump on the video upload band wagon a la YouTube and VideoGoogle.

Been looking at mobile imaging recently in mobile. Imaging is such a huge area there's too much too cover in a single post... but one application I discovered on the way was Microsoft Max as their desktop imaging application equivalent to Google Picasa (presumably they will link it to Microsoft Live)... very Apple.
