FREE WorldWide Wi-Fi for all from F&G

Pre-dating NOKIA's "FREE sat nav for all" FON and one of it's equity investors Google (F&G) have created the google mobile app (GMA) that lets you surf the web with a Wi-Fi mobile phone from any fon point in the world  free-of-charge !

Versions of google mobile app are available for Android, iPhone and NOKIA Symbian S60 and other mobile phones and you can also use it with your regular 3G network provider at normal charges. It even includes a sort of proxy server that p/re/formats web pages for mobile screen sizes !

Simply visit m.google.com/search using your phone's web browser and you will sent the right version of Google Mobile App to your phone. 

I shouldn't forget to mention that google mobile app is a web search interface with voice recognition !
Just press the correct NOKIA S60 GMA 'hotkey' ! ('c' on a 6220i or 'ctrl' on a e61i) then press the NOKIA  S60 green handset button while simply "speaking" the word your searching for and GMA will use that word and your GPS position to search the web for you !
There's also a great list of other Symbian S60 apps at http://congleton.vox.com/library/post/nokia-n95-free-apps.html

NOKIA E63, FON, Fring & SIP

Thanks to those nice people at WOM I've just been lent a NOKIA E63 to evaluate for a couple of weeks.

015

I first tried it with my nearest BT FON Wi-Fi hot spot discovering that FON now have a special .MOBI styled login page that makes it much easier for mobile users to login. Fring 3.36.15 also worked on the E63 now uses native NOKIA SIP services and still provides access to Skype, GoogleTalk & other VOIP and SIP services.

NOKIA have addressed a lot of the issues with the E61i now using a "standard" USB connector, "standard" 3.5mm audio connector and improved keyboard layout.

So now its an easy choice !

If I needed a mobile with GPS I'd buy a 6220c and if I needed WiFi,SIP,VOIP I'd buy a E63 !

NOKIA 6220 is far from perfect

NOKIA have still got a lot of ironing out to do to their 6220 Symbian S60 GSM 850/900/1800 WCDMA 900/2100 mobile phone before it becomes usable !

For starters each App uses a different (or multiple keys/menus to Exit) !

  • Exit menu, Red key, CANCEL key, Options | Exit etc etc

and I have already accidently disconnected Skype, GPS, Maps dozens of times !

Each App uses a different key to zoom in & out !

  • Up/Down, */#, 1/3 etc etc

Have NOKIA heard of usability guidelines ?

It trys to be clever and turn on GPS when you use maps or the camera but the only way to turn GPS off (and the annoying blue light) after it has automatically come on is to go into maps and Options | Exit !

So when's the first service pack due ?
