It looks like Nokia realized that they screwed up with the N97, and so they are releasing a revamped version that runs the Maemo 5 OS, which is a Linux variant that should have “true PC-like multitasking”.

My HTC Hero in Kuwait.jpg

So, after all the drama, I finally got my HTC Hero, my first impression of the phone is great loving the built quality, feel and design of the phone. Background processes/multitasking is major for me. Need a few more hours to know my way around the OS, but the notification bar is awesome. Till now the phone did not disappoint.

iPhone 3.0.1 Update

3 Aug 2009  9 Comments


So Apple released the new update for the iPhone yesterday, 3.0.1. You will download about 280MB of action packed updates which will increase the speed of your iPhone, make browsing faster, allow background Apps to work, and prolong battery life…… NOT!

This update will patch up some vulnerability issue in the SMS’s that no one has ever heard of. So basically you will waste about 30 mins using a 2MB connection to download and install a worthless amount of data. Why can’t Apple do this in a more reasonable manner, lets say 10mb or 20mb maximum? Get your act together Steve Jobs!


Which Smart Phone to Buy?

3 Aug 2009  7 Comments


I have been wanting to upgrade from my iPhone 3G to another smartphone for the past 3 months but I’m having alot of trouble selecting something.

1)  Do I go for the iPhone 3GS, or is it not worth the bother and upgrade?  

Probability of purchase : 90%

2) Do I wait for the Palm Pre GSM version, or could it be too long a wait?  

 Probablitiy of purchase : 70%

3) Do I get the HTC Hero, or is it just another good, but unspectacular Android phone? 

Probability of purchase : 50% 

4) Do I splash out on a tried and test Nokia N97, or is the Symbian platform just too unreliable?

 Probability of Purchase : 20%

5) Do I dive into the Blackberry madness entourage, or is it just a phase and really a business oriented phone that is misused in Kuwait?  

 Probability of purchase : 35%
