I’m not into writing generic posts about buzzwords but I have to admit that I’m astonished. We just got a Nokia N95 8GB last week and I’ve been playing with it since then.
It’s amazing! I’ve never used my laptop since I bought it… It has a decent web browser with Flash Lite support. All websites work perfectly: Gmail, Google, Youtube, BBC, The Register, Slashdot. Even the Google calendar works well. But the best thing is that it has wireless 802.11g support, so I don’t even have to pay a penny to browse the internet! And all major websites have their mobile versions as well automatically chosen by user agent.
Games? It supports the n-gage engine (as all new Nokia do) and has some decent games for it’s small screen. The best thing about the games is that they use a OpenGL 1.1 ES GPU on the thing. Skype, messenger, GPS, step counter etc are also available. Can it get better?
Yet, the best thing is that you can develop in C++, Java and Python! Not on the move, though… I guess I’ll have to wait a few more iterations to get a terminal and a (free as in speech) compiler and a good processor to be able to compile code while I browse the web and listen to podcasts…
