I made it ... Qt Ambassador

 

Last week ik received my kit. I urgently teared open the TNT bag and I was overwhelmed with what I discovered : there was a box with a Nokia N9 inside it! I expected the Nokia C7, but got the best looking smartphone I know of.

ambassador kit eddy

Of course I started playing with it like any other kid which gets new toys and discoverd some really neat things :

The gps and route planner is really great with speed limit control! and you don’t need 3G access to use it because it tracks the position from the satelites.
Gmail / Exchange agenda combined all in one nice looking agenda, so our family can keep track of each others activities.
This ones I really like : Root access , Use device as an external HD, websites with flash player, tracking your biking tour.

The video quality is really great, but untill now I didn’t succeed in playing high quality Youtube films. I can’t believe that isn’t possible since the default video player is awesome. I discovered some apps on the store that should do the thing.

Speaking of apps. I was amazed about what I discovered on the ovi store. Everything I need is there and even more!

So let’s dig into Meego now, since I developped my first app NumboTime for Symbian, I know what to do next. The Qt meego docs are very atractive. I’ll test it on the N9 and hopefully some good soles on devnet would like to test it on a symbian phone? ;-)

Thank you so much Nokia for this amazing kit, I will wear the shirt with pride. I’m feeling great, I’m happy and I’m having fun …isn’t that what life is all about?

Congratulations Eddy for your new “playground”.

Having it right before Easter will help to get started with exciting new ideas :)
Or with trouble with the family ;-(

Thanks Koahnig

You’re right it will be a challenging week to come: play with the kids / play with th N9.
Anyway they love the phone too ;-)

Ahmm. So this may end in some fighting who may have the phone then ;-)
Waiting until they are in bed gives you peace with them, but possibly not with their other parent ;-) Difficult weekend.

Lookin good, that shirt and the N9. Lucky you!
Seems like a really nice phone. My old C7 looks not as nice, but I still love it though. Soon there may be the time for a new phone for me. :) If I knew it, it’d waited a bit longer for ambassador submission (hehe).

The best thing about a boolean is even if you are wrong, you are only off by a bit.

Thx all,

I’m back from a week holiday, but unfortunately I couldn’t steal much time for Qt / devnet.

By the other hand the N9 is well accepted in the family now: it helped finding back the way home when we were lost in a long walk. I didn’t succeed in finding eastern eggs using Ovi maps though ;-)

That is too bad. Did you consider filing a bunny report [easterbunnys.net] ?

:D

I didn’t know the eggs went digital. I could have been looking forever ;-)
