Sendo X Reviewed

Over at All About Symbian is my little review of the Sendo X Series 60 Smartphone. Little of course being so far off the truth, because it’s close to 4,000 words long!. You can read it in depth over there, but in summary, it’s a very nice phone. Unnlike certain other companies (cough… Nokia) they’ve not left out one or two key features to promote another phone. Everything is in this one handset. 64mb Memory. SD Card. A flash on the camera. The Now! Screen. I don’t want to have to send it back in 9 days time, and I’m

N-Gage QD Review on All About N-Gage

My full review of the N-Gage QD is now online at All About N-Gage, and apart form the fact that I’m really proud of some of the pictures I took (especially the one ‘borrowed’ for this post), I thought I’d add a few personal notes that didn’t apply to the review. Didn’t apply to the review? Well, yes, because it would be fair to say that I’m a niche power user of the original N-Gage, so while I can recommend the QD to everyone, I’m sticking with the original.

Link Dump and Quick Thoughts

There’s a fair bit going on, but no time for me to write up some full length entries. But strangely, I don’t want to not post something here. I think part of it is that I’ve been watching Russ Beattie’s Blog and it’s been a bit disheartening. Russ is a 10 posts a week man normally, but work is tough so he’s slowed down the posting a lot. And it’s upsetting me. So, in case I’m upsetting my reader… Michael Moore won the Palm D’or at Cannes. Just as I hoped he would. Spike Milligan finally gets “I told you

Fun 1 Goes Live

Jim and I have been ‘piloting’ Fun 1 on Symbian Diaries for a few Formula One races now, and we’ve decided that (a) the internet needs a really good and funny Formula One blog and (b) we can do it. So please visit Fun 1 ( and join in our irreverant but pointed look at the Formula One scene. Jim and I are long time Formula One enthusiasts, who fortunately can see humour in most of the grey cut and thrust commercial world of today’s Formula One. Fun 1 isn’t a news site or even a particularly well informed editorial

What’s in My Gadget Bag?

Hey, who’s this bloke being interviewed by Gizmodo? Cripes it’s me!!! Ewan Spence takes the road less traveled, and he takes it often. Besides taking part in running All About Symbian, one of the largest community sites for Symbian Smartphones in the world, he’s also one of the people behind OPL, a keystone language (similar to QBasic) for Symbian OS. Not only that, but he’s helped set up FreEPOC as a programming team, and travels the world bringing OPL to the Symbian OS and the casual developer. Ewan brings a decidedly old-school flavor (some might even say retrograde) flavor with
