upsilon: 32GB are only feasible at this stage (what the microsdhc standard allows), only just had 8gb manufacturing samples being shown around the place, 32 is a way off.

As for the 4gb ones, they wholesale for $88 so expect them a little over that in a couple of weeks :)


He must be lying then. I will be sure to rub his lies in his face.




Can't beat the burble of that American V8. Ohh yea!

Yes, I believe he's lying (or at the very least telling what he believes is the truth, but isn't). No 32GB cards yet, 8GB by the end of the year, and eventually up to 32GB. That said there may be some fake ones around already.

Incidentally, they wholesale for $88? I got mine for $91 including shipping from the States, and that was several weeks ago. . .

icepicknz: Check the profile (PROGRAMS >> TOOLS >> SETTINGS >> GENERAL >> PERSONALIZE) There is an auto answer option.

My problem is when the phone rings I have to be so delicate to take it out my pocket because the wallet automatically pushes the center (enter) button and that answers the call. It would be nice if you could choose which buttons answer / auto-unlock.

Secondly I just got a 7" screen for my car and a sony XPLODE mp3 player (Something 2500) that has blue tooth. When using the bluetooth the car kit kicks in, however if I have my screen plugged in (For the GPS) then it automatically tries to send the audo down the audio/visual cable rather than the bluetooth would be nice if you could select the audio output default rather than it choosing it for you :/

Must say the 7" screen with MGMaps is great!!!

theres no auto answer option under personalise....
i hate it when it auto answers when the slider opens.. can someone tell me how i change this?

NZtechfreak:
In terms of software recommendations it would be helpful to know what you need to use the phone for?

I use mine for a variety of purposes, here is some of the software I've found useful:

Oxford Dictionary Viewer (for the medical dictionary)

PDF+ - better than the inbuilt Adobe PDF (to view medical textbooks)

Salling Clicker - I do powerpoint presentations relatively frequently from my laptop and using the phone to control the powerpoint (via bluetooth) is nice, it also controls WMP and iTunes and I use that facility from time-to-time.

ScanR is quite good, but you really need to have a Wireless connection handy to make the most of it - it sends photos via the net and they are sent back as printable PDFs (with some enhancements to text quality), I've used it during group work as a way to capture whiteboard work and so forth.

ACVM 2 is good - voicemail manager and beepless call recorder (never pay Vodafone for retrieving your voicemail again!).

WWIGO is nice if you ever need to use your phone as a webcam - and its freeware!

If you have a decent data plan them Mobile Gmaps (MGMaps) is worth checking out if you want to use GPS, the inbuilt one is very good, but sadly the New Zealand maps are still very poor.

If you like handheld gaming then VbagX is recommended (GBA emulator), Platinum Sudoku and Ludimate Sensible Sudoku are both good, C2Doom is nice (runs Doom WADS).



Just an update, I have tries most of the apps and here are my findings.

Oxford, Extremely useful, I'm not in the medical trade but still find it of great interest (I should have become a surgeon instead of an electronics tech, better pay too)

PDF+ Worked well, but I would not invest $30 for it, too expensive for what limited use I would have for it.

Sailing clicker, GREAT product, Useless to me but my boss loves along with a couple of friends whom are trainers.

Scanr, not used.

ACVM, Purchased, it's such a great idea and is something I have really mised from my old Samsung.
but, how do you make "on the fly" call recordings on it?

WWIGO required me to register, No thanks, and the "free" is really a beta, nice idea but.

MGMaps Sadly Google maps support is to stop. I have grabbed a last-dtich copy of it just in case. GREAT application though.

VGBAX, Horrible, It's so expensive, never worked right (I got corrupted graphics) and the demo did not times out in less than one minute which does not give a any chance to test.
Most of the time it would simply bomb out and say "buyme" in less than 10 seconds... novelty value only!

C2Doom works rather well and I might buy it if I can get a paypal account.

You have to change the graphics output method on Vbagx for N95 to Bitmap. I'm really enjoying the raft of GBA games on my phone... most work great.
