Python For S60v5 2.0 Now Available

Nokia has pushed Python for S60 2.0 update via the built-in App update utility for Nokia 5800 and the Software Update Utility for Nokia N97/N97 Mini. Along with the Python for S60, Nokia has also pushed a sample Python app named Scribble.

Python for S60 is Nokia’s port of the Python language to the S60 smartphone platform. In addition to the standard features of the Python language, PyS60 provides access to many of the phone’s uniquely smartphone-y functions, such as camera, contacts, calendar, audio recording and playing, TCP/IP and Bluetooth communications and simple telephony.

5800N97 software updates

If you liked the sample app Scribblethat Nokia is providing with the python for S60 update, you might want to check the pyS60 application heaven. But make sure it’s compatible with s60v5 as the port api code for s60v3 and s60v5 are different, So many apps that are actually built for s60v3 won’t run on 5800/N97/N97 Mini.

Nokia N97 Mini Review

Few months after the launch of Nokia N97, Finnish mobile phone maker Nokia, announced Nokia N97 Mini, a compact version of Nokia N97. Nokia N97 Mini is a full touchscreen phone that comes with a 5 mega-pixel camera and runs on Symbain S60 5th Edition OS.

Nokia N97 Mini has only 8GB in-built memory as compared to 32GB in-built memory in Nokia N97. This handset was recently released in the American, European and Asian markets. Before buying Nokia N97 Mini, make sure you have read this review by

nokia n97 mini

Ultimately, we like the Nokia N97 mini much better than its physically bigger brother. It comes with more appealing design, is made of materials with better quality and delivers improved in-call quality and operating system stability. Unfortunately, the N97 mini retains several of the shortcomings of the N97, like sluggish operational speed and limited video codec support. At the time of this review, the price of the N97 mini is slightly higher than what you would need to shell out for the N97, but this doesn’t change our opinion that the Mini is a better choice than Nokia ´s flagship handset.

The world’s biggest mobile phone manufacturer, Nokia has revealed that it will launch the latest version of its Nokia N97 i.e. Nokia N97 Mini in the Indian market during Diwali. Nokia Mini N97 was recently launched at the Nokia World 09.

Nokia N97 Mini vs Nokia N900

Alright, lets get few things straight. Now that Nokia has already launched Nokia N97 mini and Nokia N900 and few lucky people at Nokia world 09 already checking them out, I wonder why would anyone buy a Nokia N97 device.

As you know Nokia N97 mini is a Symbian based phone, whereas Nokia N900 is a maemo linux based tablet phone.

Comparison between Nokia N97 mini and Nokia N900:

Though, Nokia presented it as social device, I wonder people will be fooled by it. Would you buy Nokia N97 mini or Nokia N900? Or iPhone 3GS? ;)
