Re: Nokia 5800: Kinetic Scrolling, other Homescreen. When? We are Desperate!

[ Edited ]
For the benefit of those who were whining about it, the new firmware does have kinetic scrolling. Personally I can take it or leave it. Also, it doesn't work in the menu, only within applications.

You get a QWERTY keypad automatically if you rotate the phone during input now. They have, however, removed the horizontal alphanumeric keypad, which is a bit of a bummer as far as I'm concerned.

If the phone's locked when someone calls you, you can answer call using the same swipe motion as on the N97.

It has the new home screen off more recent S60v5 models, but no widgets à la N97.

By tomorrow I'll know if the alarm time bugs are resolved.

More free RAM at startup.

More responsive.

Still no scheduled sync or SIP client.

Not a bad update provided the most annoying bugs have been squashed and they've not introduced a shedload of new bugs.

Re: Nokia 5800: Kinetic Scrolling, other Homescreen. When? We are Desperate!

Yup, new firmware out today. And it does add Kinetic scrolling everywhere (except the main menu).

 

It also adds the contacts bar (from the Nokia 5530), ovi contacts and a faster ui overall. TheQwerty keyboard now automatically appears when you rotate to landscape mode in Text Input menus.

Well, now that the new firmware with KS and all that is out, we perhaps need to tell Nokia - We take all we've said previously back and a big thanks for reading our posts if they did. You're back in our good books (or at least most of us hopefully). I, personally, haven't upgraded yet as it seems to be unavailable for SA users but I trust they will release it soon for us (and if they don't then they're a bit bonkers!), but from what I've heard, it all sounds positive! We were only complaining because (this may not be the case with all of us nokia users) we actually do love your phones. Thanks again Nokia!

Re: Nokia 5800: Kinetic Scrolling, other Homescreen. When? We are Desperate!

Yeah! Thanks for the update! Although it needs a bit of polishing, but nevermind, it'll be better and better in every next update! I have just one question: i don't know if it's a bug, but when i put the calendar shortcut on the homescreen and add some events, it only shows one event (just the first upcoming), and it reads: next entry is on ... I think i saw a pic of this with the name of the actual event, but mine doesn't show it that way. Maybe it's an option somewhere, but i just can't find it. Any ideas how?

@TheRiddleR_

The calendar part of the homescreen will only show overdue ToDo notes and events for today and tomorrow. If there are events scheduled within the next week, the display will show "Next event dd/mm/yyyy". If the next event is more than a week off, the calendar will display nothing.

It seems they didn't add KS to the browser.

The browser had KS right from the outset. Maybe not as fast as elsewhere but it's there!

Re: Nokia 5800: Kinetic Scrolling, other Homescreen. When? We are Desperate!

Yeah, but it definitely needs some improvement. I barely noticed the "flick" effect, it's nowhere near as effective as KS in other areas such as contacts bar and music player.

Thanks for the reply. That's really lame. It would be cool to read: me and kate (for example) diner, 18.01.2010. But you get what you get, that's it :smileyhappy:

I said there were going to be an upgrade and some people here accused me of being a liar. Well, first a n97 homescreen was thought to be added for the v40 but later it was decided that a 5530-like homescreen would be better for some reasons. Some noticed and some didn't but there's an improvement for the gps connectivity. It should not take more than 5-10 seconds now (ofcourse in an open area).

 

And lastly, our biggest love goes to Nokia for listening to their customers.

Come on people, use your heads.  A guy with 5 posts comes on and claims to have insider firmware knowledge.  Clearly he's bulls***ting.  Even if a firmware WAS coming out anytime soon, why would it be 40.0.001??  That would imply that the first internal testing build of the firmware was the one that came out to the public.

 

Please don't give this guy any credit, and let's move on.  If we get another fw for the 5800, then great.  If not, let's just move on and return to Nokia in the distant future when all their grandiose claims of releasing the ultimate mobile phone come true. (yeah right)
