Introducing Nokia N9 MeeGo

Posted by Joshua |

This morning in Singapore at Nokia Connection event, Nokia introduced the Nokia N9, the 1st ever pure touch smartphone.



SWIPE
The team behind the MeeGo-based Nokia N9 brought together elements of industrial design, software development and user interface advancements, as well as a developer platform to create a better way to use a phone. All that’s needed to use the Nokia N9 is a simple gesture, a swipe of the finger. It is an intuitive way to use all the different features and functions. Whenever you are in an application, you just swipe from the edge of the screen to go back home.

UNIBODY DESIGN
The Nokia N9 has a beautiful one-piece, unibody design where the hardware and software fit together seamlessly. The large, 3.9 inch curved glass AMOLED display lets the applications shine and take full benefit of the user interface. Thanks to the innovative laminated display technology, it looks like applications are literally floating on top of the screen. The body of the Nokia N9 is made from the best in polycarbonate material engineering today, enabling superior antenna performance over most other competitors’ smartphones. This means better reception, better voice quality and fewer dropped calls. The Nokia N9 comes in three colours: black, cyan and magenta and with large storage capacities of 16GB and 64GB on the two variants to be made available.



NO BUTTONS
The Nokia N9 is the world’s first pure touch screen phone without any front-facing buttons at all. You unlock the phone by just double-tapping the screen.



THREE HOME VIEWS
The user interface in Nokia N9 is designed around the things people typically use the most. This is why there are three recognizable home views arranged in a carousel: 1) Applications for launching and organizing your apps. 2) Events for social networking feeds and notifications for calls, texts, calendar events, etc. 3) Open applications for switching between all live apps you have used recently. You can pinch and zoom the screen to see either four or nine open app icons. In fact, the Nokia N9 delivers the best multitasking experience on any phone!

POWERFUL CAMERA
The 8MP auto focus camera with Carl Zeiss optics, dual LED flash and super wide 28mm lens works faster from start to capture than any other manufacturer’s smartphone camera in the market. HD video and true 16:9 resolution photos are supported. You can share your photos via MMS, email, NFC and many online services including Flickr and Facebook.

FAST WEB BROWSER
The fast web browser is built on the latest Webkit 2 technology. Even while loading a web page, the screen remains responsive. You can have several browser windows open in the open applications view and switching between them is, again, fast and easy. Favourite websites are shown as visual thumbnails, supported by a full browsing history. Wide HTML5 support offers access to rich web applications and fast video playback.

LATEST MAPS
The Nokia N9 has the latest Nokia Maps with free, voice-guided turn-by-turn navigation for walking and driving. There is also a dedicated Drive app for in-car navigation, which lets you start navigating to your destination instantly after entering your destination. Public transport routing in 85 cities means you can find the quickest route on foot or by tram, metro or train. You can also discover nearby places with caf├ęs, shops, hotels and more, all marked along the way.

DOLBY SOUND
Dolby Headphone and Dolby Digital Plus support on the Nokia N9 turns regular stereo audio into personal surround sound on any headphones – first on any mobile phone.



NFC-ENABLED
Pairing between NFC-enabled accessories is easier than ever before – you do Bluetooth pairing only once and after that you can connect to them just by touching. You can also share content like photos or business cards via NFC.

The things that make the Nokia N9 unique – the industrial design, developments in software and user interface, and the ease of developer experience with Qt – will live on in a variety of ways in Nokia. You can go and experience the Nokia N9 for yourself at swipe.nokia.com. The site is full of interactive videos that show how the product works in real life – it is the second best thing to actually having the product in your hand! The Nokia N9 will be in stores later this year, with availability and local pricing to be announced closer to the sales start date.

Penang - Oh Jian Oh!

Posted by Joshua |

Last month I've visited Penang with YY, cari cari makan and ambik ambik gambar.

This is the 1st time I drove my new car on a long distance ride. Wonder how's the fuel consumption like for such long distance drive? To be honest, nothing much different compare with city drive, I guess this car really meant for city drive only.

Reached to Penang quite late around 4pm and checked-in at Tune Hotel. Next we straight head for lunch at Lorong Selamat.

Had Oh Jian


and Curry Mee aka in KL Asam Laksa accompany with Penang's favourite drink, Umbra.


Then we didn't go anywhere as it's quite late, so we chilled out at Starbucks. Damn I'm so addicted to this poison.


Lingered around in Starbucks next to our Hotel then cari places where dinner. Surveyed via twitter and thanks to @KayKayster for the suggestion to try out seafood at Tambun.

So we went to Tambun for fresh seafood.

Cost only 2 of us, we only ordered 3 dishes.


This one is very nice! A bit spicy and very appetizing.


also ordered sweet and sour crabs serve with buns.

The seafoods there is quite fresh and dirt cheap.

Mouth watering updating this blogpost.

More foods and places I visited on the next day of the visit.

Posted by Joshua |

Finally I got a new header for my blog. Had received a quite positive feedbacks of my Gulliver Travel's header.


Finally I've make a move to change it. This time, it's Super Mario Tallboyz Bros.


Ideas of course from The famous Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) video game itself, Mario.

Mario is a fictional character in his eponymous video game series which are created by Japanese video game designer Shigeru Miyamoto. Mario is an Italian-American plumber who lives in the Mushroom Kingdom, repeatedly stop the turtle-like villain's numerous plans to kind his Princess.

Mario 1st appear was a "Jumpman" in the arcade game Donkey Kong in 1981. Wow! He's older than me man! He's shown as a carpenter that has a pet ape and he mistreated the ape. So the ape aka Donkey Kong escape and kidnaps Jumpman's girlfriend aka Princess. So this is how the game start.


A quite interesting games that has been us for 30 years.

What do you think about my new header? Anyone have not play Mario before?

Do drop your comments below.

p/s Oh ya! I don't eat poisonous mushrooms or killing turtles and I'm not even a plumber please don't call me to fix your toilet

Super 8 | It's Coming Tomorrow

Posted by Joshua |

Yesterday I've watched Super 8. A quite mysterious trailer released sometime ago, wonder what's inside the train that try to get out after a crash.



Super 8 is a Sci-fic movie about a group of friend in a small Ohio town witnessed a disastrous train crash while making a short film project. Then they soon found it was not an accident. Unexplained and usual event began to take place in town and the local deputy tries to uncover the truth.

Rate 8.5/10 So transformer feel, maybe because produced by Steven Spielberg. Great attempt to stay mystery and making us guessing what's inside the train. It's actually an alien XD

Check out the trailer;



It's Coming Tomorrow! Stay tune yo!
