Was much easier to unlock Androids that relied on SD cards back in the day :)
Am I brave enough to go ahead and install Ubuntu Touch on the phone as its OS? ;)
Well time for the loan Nokia N8 to go back. It was fun playing with it for two weeks.
It has a great camera on it. The still and video quality are fabulous. I would love to own one just to use as a video blogging platform. The on handset video editor needs some work, it needs to be a little more refined. Don’t let that put you off, it is easy to use.
The handset is beautifully put together. The build quality is truly fantastic.
The thing that is disappointing about the handset is the Symbian^3 operating system. It is buggy and can be sluggish at times. Often you will find yourself yelling “back, back, exit, exit” as you are pressing the screen and nothing seems to be happening.
The Nokia N8 would be a truly awesome handset if it was loaded with the Android operating system. The Nokia software bods could then turn their hands to writing Nokia Android apps specifically for it.
I still would love to own a Nokia N8 and I will miss not having the little fella around.
Has been a busy old day, shame I couldn’t film most of it.
Don’t get me wrong I like O2, I even have my iPhone 4 contract with them. What I hate is the branding of boot screens. I plan on using my HTC Desire as a pay as you go handset on another network.
The O2 branding, in my mind slows the whole boot process down. I am always thinking I could be already be using the phone every time I am looking at the O2 logo/animation happening at boot up.
I know it is a petty thing but it does wind me up.
Now I have to go debrand the HTC Desire. Time trawling through shite forums etc. Ahh will be just like the old days of jailbreaking iPhones, oops I never said that :)
