This a new free theme by Nahid. It supports S60V3 and S60V5 handsets.. This theme is really cool and shall give your handset a new look and feel. The icons used in this theme are also beautiful.

Commented on “Mobile Industry Review”

Ovi store like the App Store should be a source to find apps and other stuff easily and without much fuss, but it seems nokia has missed the point, even though i am a self confessed nokia fan but i still can not ignore the sorry state of afairs of the Ovi Store cleint. It has massive flaws which ought to be corrected soon.. real soon.
The store is far to slow to load on even a wifi connection leave aside the million out there nokia is targeting with its s40 handsets who are on EDGE or even GPRS.
The search functionality is pathetic and does find the right app even though its available
The client crashes far too often

I find googling for an app much much more easier than using the ovi store and that just beats the whole idea behind opening one…

Nokia act up fast… this is the biggest blunder i think u have committed so far with ovi …

Mobile Number Portability is all set come by the year’s end. An article in The Times Of India today said so. Here’s an excerpt from the article:

Mobile number portability (MNP) will be implemented from December 31 in metros and category ‘A’ service areas, and by 20th March, 2010, in rest of the country, telecom regulator TRAI said on Wednesday.

The MNP facility will enable subscribers to retain their cell phone numbers even after changing service providers.

The government earlier this month had said implementation of MNP would be delayed by three months as regulations were still being made. Issuing “Telecommunication Mobile Number Portability Regulations, 2009”, TRAI said the MNP facility shall be available only within a given licensed service area.

Today i got a mail from Ovi Store Moderator Team( object@store.ovi.com ) that one of my comments has been deleted. Even though i do not remember for which application i had submitted this comment but still the comment was related to the application and had no reason in my knowledge to be deleted citing that it violated the terms of the Ovi Store.

Here’s an excerpt from the mail

Dear rishminder,

We are informing you that we have removed the following comment from your account in Ovi Store:

Hi Readers

m back.jpg

Since i had been away from my blog for a long long time i would like to both apologise and thank you.
Apologise for being away from my blog for such a long time without any intimation and Thank You all for reading my blog even though i had not posted any thing recent on my blog.

This long haitus from bloging was not neither intentional nor planned but was the result of change of my location and job responseabilities. Adapting to a new location consumed a lot of my time.

The new scenario means that i shall be having a lot less time with my computer and hence shall be posting a lot of my posts like this one from my cellphone using wordmobi. I shall be at your service providing you with the latest news about cellphones, applications and reviews and rants.
