Aide Memoire for Nokia 5800
This is my online aide memoire for things I need to know and remember for my new coming Nokia 5800, which is divided in to
1. Websites and what it’s contents
2. Others items required
Blog readers that utilise the Nokia 5800, and feel they need some tips please feel free to utilised but at your own risk and preference as website content may be time sensitive etc, and my preference can be different from yours.
Usefull Websites and it’s contents
1. Ovi at http://www.ovi.com/services/
Firstly we have OVI, the Nokia own content website, which has contents for all of its phones, Some are free, some are chargeable, all of if official and workable inclusive of demo versions. You can infact down load it direct to your phone.
While using the Nokia N82 frankly I have ignore Ovi as it was new when I purchase the Nokia N82, now i feel that Ovi have matured, and have some good content. Looking into what Ovi has for the 5800 I have to say I am pretty happy (for Now) with it contents especially the free content, there is a good number of application I would like to down load, and it even has E books and comics, games download is similar to the Nokia N82, though this time I will be avoiding demo versions.
What look interesting (apps) to me at ovi are the following, Weather touch, Bright light touch, Level Touch, Angle Meter touch, Facebook for nokia, Best Screen Snap, Green Charging, Notebook touch, Nokia Photo (Beta), Egg Timer Touch, Tic Tac Toe touch, Memory Status Touch, Voice Recorder Touch, Nokia Handwriting calculator, Coin Toss, Best Answering Machine, Crono Watch, Bable Phone English – Chinese.

4. Nokias60V5 at http://www.nokias60v5.com/
Is another great site for information, apps, themes and games for all Symbian 60 V 5 phones, which means that it may not work on the Nokia 5800 especially widgets as the Nokia 5800 do not currently support widgets.
There is this “Huge Battery Widget” at Huge Battery Widget For Nokia S60v5 Mobiles that I would like to try.
There is this motion sensor flying game at http://www.nokias60v5.com/2010/02/armageddon-squadron-motion-sensor-game-for-s60v5-mobiles/#more-2209
