Black N82 – Now official!

The Black N82 is now official and comes with Location tagging out of the box.

This jet black multimedia computer enables people to “geotag” the images they capture – allowing them to not only be saved by date, but by location as well.

Taking advantage of its integrated A-GPS functionality and high resolution camera, the Nokia N82 automatically tags images with capture location metadata, making it possible to view the capture location on a map either on the Internet or on the device itself. When it comes to sharing, consumers can upload their pictures or videos directly from their Nokia N82 to services like Share on Ovi, Flickr or YouTube. By installing Nokia’s exclusive and free Sports Tracker application, consumers can share their whereabouts and travel route with others on the Sports Tracker website – including the capture locations of images.

Now, if only Nokia would let me trade...

Hard-reset your N82

Has something weird happened to your device, or is it behaving strangely – unlike when you first got it? Then re-installing the OS might be the last option. But what about your messages, contacts and all the goodies you have installed on it?

Yes, your messages contacts and everything on your phone memory will be lost. And I mean it – erased. You might want to back up to your memory card though, as that will remain intact. Using the backup to memory card utility is advised, or better still backup your stuff to your PC using PC Suite.

When you’re done, you have to do the following.

  • Type *7370 from the standby screen while your phone is on.
  • It will ask for the lock code which is 12345 unless you have previously changed it.
  • Wait for the process to complete
  • Re-install all of your applications and themes.

This should correct any problems you may previously have. Except some hardware has...

Yahoo now loves N82 :)

Thanks to one of my readers for the information, Yahoo! GO is now supports the N82. The version supported is the 3.0beta according to this list. Who needs version 2.0 anyway?!

Yahoo! Go 3.0beta still doesn’t support N82

Earlier this month, sometimes between 4th and 6th, Yahoo released a beta version of their next-generation mobile application which is now more like a widget platform.

This means that developers can write mobile applets and plug it into the Yahoo Go application, thus expanding the options of the average consumer. Funny enough, Yahoo still doesn’t acknowledge the existence of the N82 device. Hmm… what’s wrong?

Copy and paste: Lost, but found

When i first got the N82, I was wondering where the heck did the ‘edit’ button go? I discovered that buried within the menu were editing options which included copy and paste. This new method was just too cumbersome for me, but I kept mum.

Today, while trying to send a text message, I unintentionally left my finger on the ‘’ key and lo and behold, the ‘edit’ options came on screen. So folks, the ‘Edit’ button is back – but with a hash look.

Exchange now available for N82

Now its an official bye bye to Windows Mobile handhelds. Nokia’s Mail for Exchange now features support for both the N77 and N82.

Although no other feature was added to the previous version apart from support for both phones which makes it a minor update, its still a major one for us N82 users and it can be downloaded here.

Yahoo! There’s a phone called the N82 please.

Just got my shiny new N82 and couldn’t wait to try out Yahoo! GO on it. I hooked up to the Internet via WiFi, navigated to Yahoo! GO’s homepage and got a message telling me my phone wasn’t supported when I tried the download – WTF?!

I checked up their site and realized Nokia N82 wasnt listed among supported phones. Well, I wanted to write their customer care to notify them of the phone’s existence, LOL. I didnt find one – maybe I wasnt patient enough.

I’ll be posting reviews as time goes on about the N82 in this space. Just in case, it costs nothing to add the RSS to your favorite aggregator.

Freedom of speech

What in heavens will get a politician’s daughter scared when she sees her name on someone’s blog?! I aint saying no more than that, but I think if i can pen it down in my diary, then I can put it up here. Does anyone disagree? Anyways, hope you guys are enjoyin’ ur new year celeberations – with freedom of expression of course!

I think I’ll be more regular now with my blog postings this year (My own new year resolution). 1 post per day! Remember the ‘one post a day’ tournament that held last November, thank heavens I didnt participate! I’d have been the worst contestant. Well, I think its time for me to express my freedom of speech to its maximum.

Taking my time

First and foremost, I would like to apologize for not posting anything for some time now. I really have no excuse. I’ll do my best to be more regular here now. But if the comments dont keep coming, I might just stop :). So y’all should try putting in some encouragement.

Just landed a new job at a web applications development firm in Victoria Island, North Ocean Ltd to be specific. It’s a relatively new company sha but its cool working with them. I’m currently the lead applications developer, hope to step up very soon.

A lot of things have happened to me in recent times. For instance, the girl i talked about previously, her name is Lara Oshibote. She’s acting strange nowadays. i really dont know what exactly is wrong but funny enough, I still feel I’m in love with her. I really hope her attitude to me will change soon.

Met this girl, Andoki Ibeshi… exactly a week ago online. She’s...

Night time in Lagos (my first experience)

Should i say last night was hell? maybe not! But it was definately an experience. I stepped out about 5 mins after the previous post and headed to the nearest bus stop – on foot! Unfortunately, the straight buses to ogba that usually hang around where gone… so i decided to go to the other familiar bus stop on Lagos Island, known to me as CMS. I got there aroung 10:09pm and guess what, they had closed for the day! That was when reality finally dawned on me – i was going to be relying on some good samaritan since i dont really know lagos.

I walked down the road to the last bus going down to obalende. after getting in, i asked the passenger right beside me if i could get buses to iju or agege from obalende, luckily someone sitting behind me answered that he was also going to agege. wow! if i could get to agege, i’ll definitely find my way home.

The journey was smooth… late hour factor...
