N82 review (2008)


Submitted by marcin on Wed 30-Jul-2008

In many places you can read about about excellent features of Symbian devices. This article will show some their advantages and disadvantages in normal life on N82 example... In many places I will speak about iPhone and other too...

Battery

The more advanced phone, the shortest battery life. This is how we can describe devices created by Nokia and many other manufacturers. My question is: can't be created and produced for example 1600 mAh batteries (like in PDA) for them ?

nx6325 (2007)


Submitted by marcin on Sat 02-Jun-2007

Page moved from the gammu.org... Page was updated by me before June 2007 and later updated by other people on the gammu.org (I have marked it here by italic). This is rather in IRC or blog blog than article - you have been warned ;)

Currently new/used notebooks are cheaper and cheaper. If you want something for development, something 64 bit capable, you can consider the HP NX6325. We will describe problems with this family of notebooks here and give all kinds of possible tips...

NetMonitor in Nokia DCT1-DCT3 phones (part 1/7) (2002)


Submitted by marcin on Mon 07-Oct-2002

I'd like to write, that I'm not professionally connected with any cellular network or phone company. This NetMonitor guide is based on many different materials and exists thanks to the support of many different people (see Information sources). This is a guide made by user. It may lack description to some functions or contain errors and mistakes (resulting from wrong translation or my ignorance) and some strange expressions. Many questions remain unanswered. Furthermore, this page is still "under construction". Encouraging, isn't it? But that's the (sad) true: Nokia doesn't make appropriate materials available... I can only assure you, that I do my best to make this NetMonitor description as reliable and complete as possible.

Gammu+ internals


Submitted by marcin on Mon 07-Apr-2008

I will want to document some internals of project here... This page will grow with project...

First of all, let's start to explain what we need to comunicate with phone... The most important is OS driver for medium used for communication (irda, BT, cable). It's external (for example provided by hardware manufacturer) and installed in OS.

We can separate our project into two things:

  • common part (in common directory)
  • client applications (for example command-line version from gplus directory)

Why (not) Samsung ? Why (not) Android ? Few comments from using Samsung Galaxy S... (2010, version 1.01)


Submitted by marcin on Fri 29-Oct-2010

8/16 GB disk space, Bluetooth, Wifi, camera (or more precise: two), headphones 3,5 mm jack, microphone and speakers, micro-USB, micro-SD card reader, FM radio with RDS, graphic accelerator, internal modem. Is it new computer model ?

No - it's Samsung Galaxy S. 4" touchscreen, proximity sensor, big battery, Android and some other make, that it's probably the best phone released during this year... Samsung already sold more than 5 millions of units and is planning to sell 10 millions to the end of 2010. Is it ideal ?
