Nokia IPhone (not a joke)

IT'S NOT A JOKE. Nokia unveils its new iPhone clone commercial at Nokia's Go Play event. You better watch this video first before we start bashing.

"If there is something good in the world then we copy with pride."
Anssi Vanjoki
Nokia's Executive VP & General Manager of Multimedia

... and it never came at the best time for Nokia as Apple's iPhone has lost its exclusivity to AT&T lock-in because of the hack. This means iPhone distribution is now lost in the wild and Nokia's European / Asian hi-end user markets are in danger of being invaded by iPhone prematurely and possibly uncontrollably without competition.

Hacked IPhone with working SIM

...And the world has triumphed against the monopolist.

IPhone is now officially hacked with thanks to Vladimir_CDI,ozbimmer. Hacked IPhone will now work with any carriers which means the price tag will sky rocket again which is good for Apple but this means AT&T will no longer monopolize the IPhone user market and people would probably switch back to better providers -- hah, it told you so AT&T, Apple got you PWND for agreeing with their marketing scheme.

Ok, I know you didn't really read my ramblings and just wants the hack so just go to:

WARNING: The hack is for the uber-techie; I'm also currently trying to get hold of the SIM readers at the moment -- I will have to wait for someone to buy it for me next month overseas.

MOSH: Nokia Dabbles Into Community Content Sharing

Free Image Hosting at

I just got a email from Nokia inviting me to beta test their new community site named MOSH which is an acronym for MObilize and SHare.

The site is similar to the very early versions of community sites where you can create a profile with uploaded picture, a tag line and a description -- IMHO it's not going to be an award winning profile but that's why it's still beta anyway.

The site basically allows you to upload and download Audio, Video, Applications, Games and Documents over the web, SMS/MMS and via WAP (The service is free but check your provider about download charges first). The maximum upload size is 100MB and so far it accepts almost any file type. Your content can be given a short description, categorized, tagged or added to a collection then finally shared either to public or just for yourself.

Aside from those features, the site is pretty much bare for now and having an unsatisfactory experience with Nokia Forum site, i don't expect MOSH to be any better. IMHO it will eventually be just another clone.

The site password is: ALLACCESS
