Weird Bug in WordPress for Nokia

Category: App,bug,Mobile Phones,Nokiaksg91 @ 12:00 pm

Blogging and WordPress is something you can’t separate. So how can I? I started blogging last month using WordPress and being user of  Wordpress, I started using WordPress for Nokia. It was solely used for checking comments or similar because writing a blog post is quite boring for me on mobile phones. While using it for few days, I discovered a weird bug.

While using WordPress for some days, I had to change my admin password. But when I started WordPress for Nokia after changing password, it showed me error, Username/Password do not match. (Yeah, I know thats obvious). But on start up it kept showing this error for each operation it does on start up like fetching comments, fetching pages, fetching post etc. This is little weird.

 

 My point is, if app has already found that Username/Password is not matching, why is it still trying to do all those operations? I think, developer should have took care for this.

I know you guys gonna ask what is so weird about this, right? Correct, real weird bug comes after that. After all those operations finishes, WordPress for Nokia comes back to its splash screen (as showed at the starting of post) and stays there for forever! Only thing we can do is to kill/close the app! It doesn’t even ask for new Username/Password, it goes forward neither! This is really annoying.

Reinstalling the app should fix this.  I wish that these bugs are fixed in next build.

This Is Why I Love Nokia!

Category: Mobile Phones,Nokiaksg91 @ 8:39 pm

It was the era when Mobile Phones came to India and they were something everybody wanted to have one but not affordable to everyone! And finally we decided to buy a phone. The only company that was known those days was Nokia and so we bought Nokia 3310. And the story started. Its been about 10 years and I still remember those days. Since then, I have been using various Nokia phones till date and quite obsessed with them. There lies a Nokia fan here. I have several big debates with friends in real life or online, all they say is Nokia is not so good! But I never let them win those debates! :P

Ok, it seems I am boring you, lets come to the point, why I love Nokia. Nokia is not so famous just for producing nice Phone but something, that many companies fail to have, i.e. after-sales service, great customer support and customer relationship. This is what has made them be the most trusted brand in India. There have been many incidence that really made me a Nokia Fan and not to mention all, I am just wanna share what they did for me today.

Those who love Nokia may probably know WOMWorld/Nokia pretty well. Those who don’t know, WOMWorld/Nokia is a Nokia sponsored resource providing latest news, comment and feedback on all things about Nokia from around the world. Since I became active on twitter, I wasn’t an exception to follow them. I follow many bloggers too. I saw WOMWorld/Nokia sending trial Nokia devices to many bloggers, developers and some non-geeks too! I recently started blogging and wanted to try some Nokia too but I was afraid to ask as my blog is quite new and so I left the thought of asking for one review unit.

Later I got some issue with my Nokia N8 in USB port and went to Nokia Care. Due to design of N8, they have to send my N8 to Delhi for about 12 days. I refused to give for now as all my spare phones were not working and phones are something I depends a lot these days. I thought “why not try to ask for a review unit from WOMWorld/Nokia? ” and I explained the situation and asked for a review unit. I mailed on weekends. I waited for couple of days but no reply! I thought I wont be getting one. But on this great monday, I received a mail from them and I was quite surprised to read the mail. They were late  (not actually late) to reply because it was weekends. This was what written in it:

Hi Kishan

We can definitely get you something to trial at least while your N8 is being repaired. The question is which would you like? At the moment we have the C7, E7, N8, X7, and E7 available. Also some BH-905i or Nokia 806’s accessories to go with the phone.

Let me know which phone you would like and we’ll take it from there.

Thanks,
Paul

Can you imaging, you will get choice of such high end phones? And the unexpected offer of having such a great headsets with phones without even asking for it too! Man, they really won my heart today. Have you ever saw any company like this?

I asked for one review unit of simple accessory from a company (can’t mension their name, sorry) and their first question was “Can you please send us the visitors stats of your site” and it was obvious to fail here for a new blogger like me. While WOMWorld/Nokia, without asking for anything about my blogging site’s stats, replied that mail so greatly! I really thank them for such an awesome response.

All I wanna say is THIS IS WHY I LOVE NOKIA! And after this post if you call me a fanboi, who cares? These points are enough for me to love a company! Thank you all at Nokia and WOMWorld/Nokia, especially Paul. :)

NOTE TO OTHER COMPANIES: Learn From Nokia, guys! :P

UPDATE: Even before I publish this post, I received another mail from them with agreement form for all formalities to get device and here we go. Hurrrray.. :D

LG Optimus 3D, Worlds First 3D Phone Launched in India

Category: Mobile Phonesksg91 @ 12:43 am

 

I had my eyes on this device ever since I saw this on some show. Well, Its LG Optimus 3D.

Its world’s first 3D smartphone. LG was first to introduce dual core phone with LG Optimus 2x and now again first with first 3D smartphone! Good move LG.

LG Optimus 3D features worlds first tri-dual i.e. Dual Core, Dual -Channel and Dual Memory architecture.

LG Optimus comes with Dual-core 1GHz ARM Cortex-A9 proccessor, PowerVR SGX540 GPU, TI OMAP4430 chipset. It has got 4.3″ screen with WVGA display which let user experience 3D viewing without the need of glasses. The best thing about this is depth, that produce the 3D display without the need of glasses. This phone runs Android 2.2 and is upgradable to 2.3. It has also got the LG’s 3D UI as seen in above image. Other features are 512MB RAM, 8 GB internal memory expandable upto 32 GB with microSD, A-GPS etc.

This phone is not only limited to displaying 3D content but as well as producing it too. It has 5 MP with LED camera which is capable of taking 3D image! It is capable of also recording 1080p @ 30fps 2D videos and 720p @ 30 fps 3D videos! This could be really interesting and exciting thing for all and one feature to force some enthusiastic to buy this phone.

LG Optimus 3D comes with 15mAh battery only. IMO, this is low for a giant phone like this. I believe this phone will suffer with low battery life. It would have been a lot better if this phone was packed with some higher power battery.

It was expected that this phone will launch in India between 35k-40k and as expected, it is launched at Rs 37,500. IMO, its well priced.

1930mAh Battery for Nokia N8?

Category: Mobile Phones,Nokiaksg91 @ 1:52 pm

“Battery Low!!” We always feel worried seeing this message on our phone, especially when we are out door. Gadget geeks’ power hungry smartphones always crave for more power! And there comes the batteries from the well known company for extended batteries, Mugen Power Batteries. They produce extended batteries (upto 4800mAh for Motorola Atrix!) for almost all smartphones but… but Nokia N8. Well, it isn’t their fault though. Nokia N8’s non-user removable battery design makes too hard to fit any batteries thicker than original battery.

After many request from N8 users, Mugen Power Batteries decided to start research for possibility of developing extended batteries for Nokia N8 only if they get 500 votes on twittion.

But before even they reach 500 votes, they said this to me in one talk,

@ksg91 This is currently in discussion. We have collected enough votes on twitition to initiate the development evaluation

They told me that they will post result soon. But as rumors said, they may make 2000mAh battery. Asking them about this, they

@ksg91 I think it’s not going to be 2000mAh but around 1500mAh. N8 is not too flexible for extension as it turns out.

Couple of days ago, I asked them about this and they replied that they haven’t come to any conclusion yet but result will be available soon.

 

But today, while wandering over the Internet, I came across extended batteries for Nokia N8! Yes, extended battery of 1930mAh. The possibility of extended battery more than 1500mAh was  declined by Mugen Batteries while the product I come across claimed to be of the same size of the original battery and still having 1930mAh power!



The product is on ebay UK.  The product costs just £6.15 (Rs. 400 only) . Here is the link to battery: http://l.ksg91.com/owWhjG

Looking at the price and other factor, product seems to be unrealistic. If anybody have any information about this, do comment here. :)
