N97 Review Day 4 - Random Reboots and USB Charging flakiness

Submitted by Roland on Sun, 2009-07-05 23:21

Experienced the usual "early Nokia firmware why-can't they-get-it-right-the-first-time" glitches today on the N97:

  1. The phone rebooted when I inserted the USB cable to recharge it
  2. USB charging via the USB cable didn't work until I rebooted the phone (charging via the USB to normal Nokia power charger coverter dongle worked flawlessly!)

As Dave Winer says, "We make sh*tty software". The frustrating part is that Nokia doesn't seem to improve its firmware for the initial release of its phones. My 7610 in 2004 and the trial N97 I have today in 2009 both have random reboot problems and other glitches; the fit and polish of the initial Nokia firmware releases (i am running the 2nd release i.e. V11 on the N97 but it doesn't seem very polished) hasn't improved in the last five years. C'mon Nokia, you can and should do better, please!

I really can't stand the way the address book works. The idea that you press the first letter in whom you are looking for... then it only displays the possible letter remaining. This is slow and drives me nuts! Why not give the user the option for this method or display the entire keyboard. Yes, yes... I know there is a slide out keyboard but would be nice to have a multi-touch option for us sales people that are typing while driving like we're not supposed to.

Another great example of innovation, I am glad to locate it. There are so several developers working on this segment but this is one of the best innovative idea ever. Thanks for sharing it here. fashion blog

A good point Ralph, but I believe people are going to have a hard time defending prejudice when the possibility of answering certain kinds of questions with much greater precision increases. useful reference

It may well be, rather, that when, say, a company or organization is asked by the media to provide a spokesperson to comment on some damn thing, it provides a man rather than a woman seo la gi
