E65, alarm and blocked navigation buttons

When I got Nokia E65 last year I faced with strange problem. After alarm was triggered the navigation buttons (including Own key were disabled). To make them work the phone should be restarted. Recently I found solution to solve that (thanks to forum on allnokia.ru). Using Tracker – advanced and fully customizable desktop application we reassign navigation buttons to the same actions. After that all buttons work correctly till Tracker is run.

Sure it isn’t a perfect solution but at least it works 🙂

Additionally it’s equiped with gigabit Ethernet ports for reliable high speed wired connections and download Speedometer bar for measurement of the download speed of your network.

The Belkin’s N+ Wireless Router will be available next month at just $119.99! Good price for such kind of devices.

Fring brings VoIP to iPhone

Fring on iPhone

Yesterday a Fring for iPhone was pre-released. It brought VoIP over WiFi and IM functionality to stylish and power Apple’s smartphone. Now all iPhone owners will be able to use Skype, MSN, Google Talk, ICQ, Twitter, Yahoo! & AIM ob their devices.

I use Fring on my Nokia E65 a few months. It’s really nice and useful. Sure, there is a native Gizmo application for S60. But Fring offers much more features.
