N97 - Ball out of Nokia

Posted by Rodrigo Piccelli on 28th April 2009

Hello everyone, long time that do not show hein!

I entered the blog just to take a story that at least for me it was not the most pleasant. Nokia ta giving a ball outside the specifications of the N97 that was released today, I made a comparison with the aging N95-1 and see the result:

For that I did not expect, despite the clock "slightly" above the device is uni and not have the graphics card that makes much difference on the N95 when compared to his "successor" N96.

I hope that the improvements in the operating system justify these breaches, otherwise the N97 is not worth the price charged for it.

See you soon ...

End of holidays, back and live at Campus Party 2009

Posted by Rodrigo Piccelli on 19th January 2009

That's it guys, am back after a long period without posts for December have been extremely one months and then be gone on vacation in sta. catarina, and even with internet available was completely out of the news, I need to be able to catch up with the news back to you.

This week I am one of the campers campus party in 2009 is happening here in Sao Paulo, courtesy of my friend Lilian who won a pair of invitations and graciously provided me with one of them.

For today is not many new features, the structure is being assembled and given a bit of work to get a stall with the Internet already, but now it's ok.

For now the only thing I can say is that the speed of the internet is really Fantátisco, but is very unstable, you see:

In other tests the upload was at around 6 Mb later make a new test.

The stands are not yet ready, then put some pictures of the camping areas and new developments that are found here.

Oh yes! Happy 2009 ... :-)

Released V31.0.014 firmware for N95-1

Posted by Rodrigo Piccelli on 4th December 2008

And the relentless strikes again.

The N95-1 got another version of firmware, shortly after the launch of the S30. Who want to upgrade, simply use the Nokia Software Update.

I am always in favor of upgrading the firmware because it brings updates and fixes for the device, but this time I'm far too lazy to have to reinstall everything. I'll wait a little, at least until you see the changelog for this release.

Nokia N97 - The phone that I was expecting

Posted by Rodrigo Piccelli on 2nd December 2008

For some time I'm waiting for the announcement of a cell "up time", as was the N95 in its release. At first I was eyeing the Samsumg Innov8, which is without doubt an excellent machine, but now Nokia has what I call the final card, the N97:

See the specs of belezura:

• 3.5mm stereo headphone plug and TV-out support (PAL / NTSC)

• Bluetooth wireless technology 2.0 with A2DP stereo audio, enhanced data rates (EDR)

• GPS receiver with support for assisted GPS (A-GPS)

I could say it is perfect, but I would not go that far. Failure to support digital TV and I still can not say he has a graphic aceledora as the N95 also, so I can see the pictures, apparently because Nokia did not make USB charger for, what I consider a failure too great, there is nothing in the speaking of accelerometer and finally, this dual LED flash and it could be a xenon. Anyway we are close to perfection and this is possibly my next phone. Now you wait.

N95 - Solving the problem "Contact the Dealer"

Posted by Rodrigo Piccelli on 28th November 2008

YES! I'm Alive!

No! I have not abandoned you!

You know right staff? End of year, life is a hellish run, a project with tight time and run the day-to-day just so that staff give up some things that take time to benefit others.

Pra help'm not faced with very interesting news recently, and you publish any zucchini not only to run out of update, I'd rather not update it.

Speaking of that matters now: Many people had the problem recently, after updating the firmware, backing up, the screen appears "Contact the Dealer" in restarting the phone.

I even had this problem but it was resolved with a new boot, which has not been the reality of other people.

Well, before "getting in touch with the dealer, try the following (the credits are the reader Frost, Thanks for the tip):

Unplug the unit, hold tight while the keys "3", "*" and "SEND" and linked the device.

That's it ...

Regarding updates on the site, have faith that whenever he has a little time I come back!

Thank you all ... =)

WiMax network will be tested in Sao Paulo from tomorrow

Posted by Rodrigo Piccelli on 23rd October 2008

Partnership between Motorola, Intel and Telefónica offer WiMax signal free neighborhoods of pine and Gardens.

The test will take place closed 150 residential customers of Telefonica for 3 months, the group will receive a free connection of 2 Mbps and the objective is to assess the technical feasibility of the connection as the user response.

The consortium also plans to conduct similar tests in the cities of Rio de Janeiro, Curitiba and Porto Alegre even without term.

If the tests are successful and the equipment Morotola are approved by Anatel, Telefonica plans to launch WiMax commercially only in Sao Paulo.

I know little about the functioning of the WiMax network, but if I remember correctly the signal is not compatible with the WiFi signal, which means it would not be possible to use only the signal with a common laptop, requiring a specific modem. Another thing I read is that the UMTS / HSDPA is better and that in many parts of the world's WiMax has been prevented.

I will not judge without being sure, so I will develop a little more and the beginning of next week I do an article on the differences.

Zap 3G and Unlocking devices - General Sanadas

Posted by Rodrigo Piccelli on 22nd October 2008

As promised in posts and in the comments section, from meeting to meeting a delivery now in the morning I took the time to talk to the live call and remove the doubts.

Regarding the Zap 3G I was told that here in the region really is an instability, which at first was expected to be resolved until 10 am, the deadline was not met, but note that they are actually working, by measuring I just do:

Apparently they managed to download, but upload is tolerable, I'm having enough trouble because of that, but at least one can note some progress, I'll wait until tomorrow to see what happens.

The second question was about the Unlock Online devices, at first the attendant wrapped me a while to respond, so I informed him that he was editor of a website and I had published on the service a few days and everything, and that she answer is that the process was facing some difficulties (apparently had too many people fighting the release of the device to always make mistakes) and was eventually taken off the air "to undergo a maintenance and become safer," and she informed me is that only an hour stores operator as before.

Really a shame, but I think I understand the difficulty, since a person with little experience in unlocking mistakes (3 attempts) the machine becomes "impossible" to unlock, need a "box" to be done, this would headaches too far to the operator who is forced to unlock the device by the FCC.

Unfortunately some pay for the mistakes of others, do what ... = (

The business is not losing hope and hope to come back ...

HP Releases - Data Messenger and Voice Messenger

Posted by Rodrigo Piccelli on 21st October 2008

HP has launched two new SmartPhones that finally have a design a little more sophisticated, the iPAQs were horrible to do (not to mention the size).

The Data Messenger (left of photo), has touch screen 2.8 inches, sliding QWERTY keyboard, supports 3G HSDPA, has Wi-Fi, aGPS and 3.1 megapixel camera.

Since the Voice Messenger has a smaller screen, 2.4-inch difference from the first only the design, the features are exactly the same.

The scheduled launch of both in Europe is respectively 5 and November 22, with suggested prices of 399 and 499 euros.

The vast majority of releases are bringing over a year and a half later the same features as the old N95, often less, it's time to make some new Nokia superlançamento ... Is he the N97?

Zap 3G at the Avenida Paulista

Posted by Rodrigo Piccelli on 21st October 2008

Continuing my review of the live connection in areas where I use it, follow the SpeedTest I did in the office this morning on the outskirts of Rua Frei Caneca Augusta.

Yeah, things are not as well as Sao Caetano, however the upload is excellent in the tests I did last week it also occurred at this speed my work is hardly affected, but the difference is striking.

I will try to contact the Live to see what they say about this low speed.

I return to publish when you have an answer.

Posted in Mobility | No Comments » - Mobile Edition

Posted by Rodrigo Piccelli on 20th October 2008

With 3G networks to full swing and many people just coming to the world mobileweb, it seems fair to launch a version of for mobile devices, so the people who like this website may also follow the news on the small screen of mobile .

The address is, when accessed on a desktop will be directed to an emulator and the phone will work automatically.

Here are some screenshots, I still need to give a "slap" in the visual, but I think the initial result is very satisfactory.
