Oh Thanks mate ! I had upgraded it after buying the phone, but got confused after reading few posts here and there. Guess they were about the normal N95.

Hey buddy, download GoogleMaps for N95 and use it instead of the Nokia maps. Much better maps with faster loading.
Also, you'll need GPRS to be active. Nokia Maps and Google Maps - both use in-built GPS along with the GPRS connection.

Unhappy Connecting GPRS through Bluetooth for Laptop

Issue: I have an airtel Mobile Office connection and it works fine on the phone (HTC Touch, Win Mob 6 Professional) as well as on my Laptop (Sony Viao, Win XP) with phone connected through the USB cable.

But when i connect phone to laptop through Bluetooth, though the GPRS to Phone and Phone to Laptop connection happens, internet connection in laptop is down??

I have tried all combinations possible, and yes i have used the Bluetooth PAN in laptop for this connection.

Any solution to this?

Also which one is correct for Airtel GPRS PAP or CHAP authentication? and what should be the CSD line config, it has following options:

Data rate: ?

9600 bps(v.32)
9600 bps(v.110)
9600 bps(v.34)

Connection element: ?

Non- Transparent
Transparent

Help appreciated while i do some google from my side.

Look at Nokia 6233 or increase your budget a little and go for Nokia E51, it rocks and has everything you may ever need.

Default Nokia's latest N83

Hi friends:

Just upgraded from my Nokia N73 to a Nokia N82 on 31st Dec. 2007.

Bought it (peti-pack) from TheMobileStore for Rs. 24,499 less free gift worth Rs. 5,000. Nokia announced this phone barely 45 days ago.
The MobileStore - Best Mobile Phone Deals, Buy Mobile Phone, cell Phone Accessories

The operating system is Symbian OS version 9.2 with S60 rel. 3.1 GUI.

The GPS is just awesome. Beats all my experience with borrowed N95s.
Other cool features include 802.11 B/G WiFi and FM stereo tuner. It has a 3.5 mm audio output jack, so you can plug in your hifi headphones directly.

One of the top features is the 5 megapixel camera (2592 x 1944 pixels) with Tessar lens from Carl Zeiss. This is the famous Tessar four-element design.
The front element is a positive crown glass element, center element is a negative flint glass element and the rear element is a doublet comprising a negative plano-concave flint glass element cemented to a positive convex crown glass element.
Maximum aperture is f/2.8 at wide narrowing down to f/5.6 at telephoto.

First time for Nokia is a built-in Xenon high intensity discharge flash.

The phone came with an installed 2 GB microSD flash memory card with hot swappability.

It has built-in GPS navigation with additional Assisted GPS (A-GPS) for fast tracking.

Nokia has also integrated an accelerometer (with user-interface auto-rotate). When you rotate the camera, the screen automatically switches from portrait mode to landscape mode.
The very good browser automatically toggles between portrait mode and landscape mode, depending on how you orient it w.r.t. earth's gravity!



Here is Team-BHP on the laptop and on the Nokia N82.

At last the phone has a 3D Graphics hardware accelerator (OpenGL Embedded Sys. 1.1) and analog video signal output for direct connection to a TV set.

Ram

firmware for N82 reads :
V 10.0.046
24-10-07
RM-313
Nokia N82 (25.01)

@ram, congrats on the purchase!

Try the GPS with Google maps version 2 (the current version) and you'll love it! Download Google maps from Google Maps (from your phone).

I played with one the other day, and except for the keys (the design is not to my taste), I found the phone to be pretty good!

Congrats Ram,

Could you post a detailed experience of the GPS? I've never managed to get the N95 to work besides once acquiring satellites. Have tried on several borrowed N95s!! 20k is quite a steal for the package! Any maps bundled with it?

N73 buttons were too cramped N82 keys although small are wellspaced. Texting on N73 was a chore but its ok on n82. If you liked N73 you are gonna love N82 ... i know i do

  1. I liked the feel of the joystick on the N73. The N82 joystick has a flat pad on it. The N73 joystick would snag on artifacts in your pocket and on one occasion, got yanked out.

    http://www.orkut.com/CommMsgs.aspx?c...62251538599362

    This will not happen with the N82 design. But I must admit the feel of the N82's five way pad is decidedly less tactile than that of the N73's joystick.
  2. At first use, the small rectangular keys on the N82 come across as more inconvenient than the illuminated buttons on the N73. But I got used to them quite quickly and found them quite useable.
  3. The "Edit Key" (pencil) is missing on the N82. This is usually found in S60 devices. It controls some editing functions (for example: copy, cut, paste)...


    Some experimentation revealed that you can use the # key for this purpose.

Default Macro photography with a phone?

The macro photo of the Nokia N73 above was taken with the Nokia N82
and that of the N82 was taken with the N73.

The difference in quality is slight but obvious, but would you agree, leagues away from autofocus cameraphones that won't focus down to 10 cm,
and even farther from fixed focus cameraphones that permanently focus on infinity?

Default Stitching Panoramas with the N82

An interesting feature of my old Nikon Coolpix 4500 camera was its NikonView 5 CDROM that included a software app called ArcSoft Panorama Maker. This let me easily stitch together a number of images to automatically create beautiful multi-megapixel panoramic photographs.

The Nokia N82 now also supports the feature through an included app called PanoMan.
PanoMan does the panoramic stitching all on the phone itself. The smart application analyzes how two pictures fit together and automatically snaps when it “thinks” is right.

You basically start off by taking an image. It then saves this image and displays it on the screen, while showing a live camera view next to it. Now all you need to do, is keep a steady hand and pan to the right. This allows it to see how the next image would “fit” when put next to the image already taken. As you gently pan the phone, PanoMan automatically snaps frames on the N82 as it sees them fit with each other.

The key to seamless panoramic images is to stitch images that are a continuation of the other. Sometimes pincushion distortion can make it impossible to have a good panorama.
But it works great most of the time. Use a tripod, as slight hand movements can confuse the software and possibly spoil the final result.
