There isn't the money in the game, at grass roots level. FIFA wanted to keep the actual playing of the sport consistent regardless of what level was being played. Introducing tech where it is affordable starts to creep toward having different rules at different levels.
Integrated LCD panel and touch screen means no more cheap touch screen digitiser replacement repairs for dropped phones. Could be done for a tenner on the old phones.
Sold far more than 200,000 already in its launch markets.
Nokia are trying to innovate and push the envelope and improve phone cameras. Can't see a negative there.
Of course, if you prefer to pay for processing of accidental pictures of your feet , your thumb, ceilings etc?
I am sick of using iMEssage for this contact, What'sApp for another contact, FB Messenger here and IM there and SMS for everything else. I can't talk to the BB users at all.
The firm that comes up with the single unified messaging client wins all.
I have my ipad3, and the extra res on the display is useless. What exactly can I do with it?
I want a screen that doesn't grease up, and doesn't glare in the sunshine. Real USEFUL things.
Re: What a load of BS
Farnell didn't have any stock either. None of it has arrived to be processed through customs yet.
Re: Re: @Bin Yin
The Farnell price includes the shipping cost. R-Pi tweeted that they had checked this with them and it's OK.
Re: @Pete 2
Forget @Pete 2, he is @Pete Tong.
And he knows it, just can't admit it.
Writing Microsoft as "Micros~1" appears as much puerile as <$ is childish.
No functional use at all. Seriously. My iPhone4 display is no more useful than my old iPhone 3G one was. What I mean to say is, I could read my old iPhone 3G screen perfectly well and it didn't suddenly become unreadable when the iPhone 4 arrived. There is virtually no practical difference on 3.7". I can understad hi-res on 17inch screens and higher but on a 9.7 inch pad? It's just willy-ware.
Oh dear! If I look really hard it's a bit dotty. Can't possibly read that!
is that a phone in your pocket....
My phone with it's enormous screen has been struggling with the backpack I have to carry it in when everybody else is just slipping theirs into a pocket.
I think I'll just give up on the phone and hump a laptop around.
Presumably, as a published author, you rely on proof readers.
Some iPhone users have gone to Android, Some Blackberry users have gone to iPhone, Some Blackberry users have gone to Android.
Thats the stupid closed messaging system, time to drop it.
"esp the way Google Nav works on the big screen and the space she has for the virtual keyboard."
Hope she never has to use Nav whilst data roaming. Unless she is a millionaire.
It's free on Nokia Maps.
Orange San Francisco "cheap but decent"? I'll give you cheap, but the only way it is decent is as a replacement for a Gameboy, or for window-licking geeks who like to fiddle with their ROMs.
Worst battery life, camera, reliability, call signal strength. Absolutely terrible phone, regardless of what cooked ROM is on board.
My San Fran
My OSF has poor signal reception, bad call quality, rubbish camera, abominable battery life and dreadful build and reliability.
But that's all OK because you can load modded ROMs on it and play Angry Birds.
It's seriously the worst phone I ever had. People who like it are only using it as a Gameboy substitute.
"The codebase for Symbian is now so old, and has been adapted to so many different platforms over the years,"
So, the codebase under iOS (BSD UNIX) and Android (Linux) are springchickens that have never been adapted to any platform?
Have a think.
According to Gartner, Microsoft have dropped to 1.6%.
Bit of a disaster in anyones book.
OSF? Don't make me laugh
News for spec-suckers. High resolution screens on small displays offer little or no benefit. Emperors new clothes. They are for spec wall-pissers. 320x240 does everything you need.
As for the OSF, I have one and I wouldn't recommend it even for £25. Give me a phone that gives a decent reception, reasonable battery life, takes a decent image and doesn't need its battery taking out every time I want to make a call please. You can have all the above on my OSF in return. It's the second one btw, the first one went back because I thought it was faulty, it wasn't, it's just normal for an OSF to be shyte.
Hasselblad are Chinese owned now. A lot of development of this camera was contracted to Fujifilm.
A "home mad Boston cream pie" ? Sounds good to me, but only once a year?

OK you are right. Insist immediately that the book of Genesis is rewritten and the word "god" is replaced with "Jobs" using iWork search and replace facility - the one and only truly original.
Of course, Apple authored "Origin of the Species" for non-creationists.
Or you could just own up that you are so blatantly wrong.
Storing apps since 1999.
I said that they developed and expanded the market, not created. It's not a subtle difference but a huge one.
Otherwise you are saying there were no N95s, Palm Treos, Sendo Xs and various others before 2007 when Apple came out with their restricted multitasking iPhone 1 with no published API feature phone.
Which is going to be the first Fish & Chip shop to claim that they are the only one?
That's the distorted reality of it.
Apple didn't create, they developed and expanded. Sundry other forgottens created. Important difference, usually overlooked by any expert in Jobsonian philosophy.
There is an important difference between "created" and having "developed and expanded". The latter is what Apple did. The former belongs to sundry other fogottens,
what you say makes sense until you ask why Apple make iPod minis and iPod nanos. Where is their app store footfall? A small iPhone would like still be a serious iTunes revenue generator via the iTunes interface. Just like the minis and nanos.
