MiniSpeaker - Reads The Texts You Type!

MiniSpeaker is a very simple program which reads the text you type. It uses the the TtsPlayer class from SymbianExample. Download it from here (only the .sisx file) or here (including the source). This program is based on an undocumented feature so it may not work on your device. Also, in my brother's N80 it doesn't work with non-English words.

WidSets No Longer beta Too!


Espoo, Finland - Nokia today announced that its innovative Internet service called WidSets, launched one year ago, has emerged from Beta to a new service platform. With the new platform WidSets will offer improved usability by localizing mobile clients and improving mobile widget library. WidSets will also bring advertising in as the primary business model. WidSets works on Java enabled handsets from a range of manufacturers and utilizes widgets, so users can have one-click access to real-time online content without needing to use a mobile browser.

"We've been delighted with the feedback we've had from the Beta trials of WidSets," said Jarmo Jokinen, Director of WidSets, Nokia Emerging Business Unit. "During that time, we've had more than 3 million users register for the WidSets service on more than 300 models of mobile device. We've valued the early feedback, which has enabled us to launch a more compelling service for users and content providers."

The new platform offers a dynamic search feature and an improved widget creation tool for quicker, simpler and more personalized options for creating widgets. And now it is really easy: enter the web address, click to select the feed and then you will have a personal widget! Around 90 percent of the current WidSets' content is already user generated, but the WidSets team has recently added many new widgets and made it easier for users to find local and also non-English-language content.

The new Explore feature for finding widgets offers an option to perform a live search, filter through recommended widgets, or go through tags or categories, and download them for use on mobile devices.

WidSets now offers a unique advertising model to commercial customers for providing two-way-interaction between the advertiser and their customers or prospects. A great example is a movie theater widget: the user chooses the city they are looking for and can then see what movies are on, in which theater, and whether there are seats available. A perfect match of benefits for movie going consumers, and the advertiser!

On the WidSets website people can review the widgets and see the latest, most popular or top rated widgets and share those with others. And now this can also be done from the mobile device. One of the latest widgets is for AccuWeather.com, which is expected to rapidly become one of the top ranked widgets in the WidSets library.
The WidSets mobile dashboard can also now be shared. This means that when creating a profile, users may share their own dashboard and widgets with the others, and see what the other "WidSeteers" are using as well as how they look like, thanks to the user images available in dashboards.

Nokia plans to pre-install WidSets in tens of millions of mobile phones during 2008, and enabling service support in tens of different languages. The recently unveiled Nokia 8800 Arte which will start shipping in the fourth quarter of 2007 will be the first handset to offer WidSets to its style-conscious consumers. In addition, users can already get started with WidSets via the Download! folder on all Nokia Nseries and Eseries devices.

WidSets works on a wide variety of mobile phone brands, and is already compatible with more than 300 mobile devices. Users can easily download WidSets from www.widsets.com or on their mobile from get.widsets.com.

The Nokia 8800 Sapphire Arte adds to the sense of exclusivity by further enhancing its polished steel case with a genuine sapphire gem stone and an accent of soft leather, creating an even more rich, sensual feel.

Continuing a tradition of incorporating exclusive soundtracks in its premium handsets, Nokia has invited the internationally-acclaimed master producers Kruder & Dorfmeister to add their standout musical style by creating a unique compilation for these new devices. Owners of the Nokia 8800 Arte and Nokia 8800 Sapphire Arte will be able to enjoy an exclusive videotrack and soundtrack composed by Kruder & Dorfmeister with visuals by Fritz Fitzke - adding an extra touch of sophistication and individuality to both handsets.

Each handset comes with an assortment of mobile accessories that further complement the exquisite experience of the Nokia 8800 Arte and Nokia 8800 Sapphire Arte. This includes the elegantly designed Nokia BH-803 Bluetooth headset with Active Noise Cancellation and touch sensitive volume adjustment. To add an element of sophistication and security, each handset comes with a leather pouch with a linen-lining and a separate matching desk stand.

Nokia N82 - The Next Episode - Video!

Fed up of Nokia N82 photos? Here's a short clip from Symbian-Freak so you can take a break from still images for now.


Surprise, surprise the D-pad works just like the one from N81! I guess N82 really has it all, even more what N95 has.. Since I'm not a (so) fan of touchscreens, what else can I ask for such device! Oh, I almost forgot Nokia intentionally made its keypad tiny flat. Now I'll ask Nokia - Can you still remake the numeric keypads?! =)

Accelerometer On N95 & N95 8GB Works Like Wii's!

I can't help it, but I have to say that Nokia is relatively correct in branding their Nseries phones as "multimedia computers", that slogan I can't contest and is now justified. Here's another example why such phones deserves that mantra, watch how Nokia N95s acts like Nintendo Wii's remote controller this time - multimedia...

Whether you want to access your mail, RSS feeds or bank information, Opera Mini is fast, safe and secure. Opera Mini 4 delivers several new features for quicker scrolling, navigation and page rendering."


Full web in your palm

When you go to a web page, Opera Mini will show you the overview of the page, then suggest where to begin reading. Opera Mini zooms quickly in on the web page and focuses on the content you want to read.


Sync your online lifestyle

Now you can use Opera Link with Opera Mini 4 to synchronize the Web links on your mobile phone with the Web links on your computer. Simply log in to a My Opera account through your phone to sync your bookmarks, or access them from any other browser by going to a Link Web page.


Define search patterns

Just like in Opera for your computer, now you can create your own Web search from any search field on the Internet using Opera Mini. Simply click on the search field that you want to grab on a Web page and then choose "Create search" within your menu.


Opera Mini 4 - In Detail

Opera Link

Sync Your Digital Lifestyle

Now you can use Opera Link with Opera Mini 4 to synchronize your mobile phone Web links with the Web links on your computer. Simply log in to a My Opera account through your phone, to sync your bookmarks, or access them from any other browser by going to a Link Web page.

Opera Link

View Pages in Landscape mode

Want to view the Web on a wider screen? Just hit * # and flip your phone to the side to enjoy browsing in Landscape mode. Change your default view to landscape by turning "Landscape mode" on inside your Settings menu.*

Opera Link

Optimized for Blackberry Users

Opera Mini 4 offers "native BlackBerry menus" designed to invoke the same user-interface Blackberry users are used to on Blackberry devices. Now BlackBerry users can use Opera Mini in a more integrated way that looks and feels like a BlackBerry.

Opera Link

Give Your Phone A Mouse

Opera Mini now gives you a virtual mouse, so you can easily scroll in any direction. Move the mouse cursor towards what you want, and then it quickly snaps your view to the link or content.

Opera Link

Enhanced Small Screen Rendering

Opera's unique Small Screen Rendering feature, "Mobile View," lets you better enjoy web pages on the small screen. Fit any web page to width and Opera Mini 4 will adjust the page structure on the fly. Browse up and down without also having to worry about horizontal scrolling. Instead, scroll down a single column, perfectly resized for your phone.

Top features

Super Fast = Cheaper Browsing

Opera Mini 4 loads your requested web pages at over twice the speed of the other mobile browsers on the market. Because Opera Mini 4 compresses the data before sending it to your phone, your content is delivered faster and costs less to receive.

Opera Link

Then you can enjoy making frequent searches without having to type in the site link again.

Opera Link

Suggested Start Points

Opera Link

Quick Browsing Keystrokes

Take control over your viewing options with a few quick keystrokes. Just hit 1 to open the Context Menu, where you can turn on Small Screen Rendering (Mobile View) or reload the page.

Before you click on a link, focus the cursor on a link to check where the link will take you. You can then choose whether you want to open the linked page with images turned off. If you choose to browse with the images turned off, you can still choose to load these images in the page you are browsing by selecting "Load images." You can even load the image in its uncompressed, high-quality, original size by choosing "Open image."

Opera Link

Tools and support for web designers

We support web designers who want to make their websites look even better to those browsing with Opera Mini. In Opera Mini 4, we have included all of the cool CSS support that web designers need to make their web pages look pixel perfect on in the mobile web world.
