  • The affordable Nokia 5230 with touch sensitive screen has passed FCC. Unfortunately, it doesn´t support the 3G bands of АТ&Т, so if you feel like getting yourself one of these, you better wait until the Finnish guys roll out a dedicated version for the US. (source: IntoMobile)

  • Playlist DJ for Symbian S60 5th Edition is now available for download on Ovi Store. You will have to shell out 4.99 EUR for the program that creates playlists to fit your mood or tempo preference. Of course, you will have to allow the app to scan your music library and it´s a good thing that unlike SenseMe by Sony Ericsson, this is done by the app itself while running on your handset, so you don´t need any other computer software.

  • The Samsung Galaxy I7500 got itself a software update. The new version improves the phone stability and battery life. It adds an app called "Switchers" that allows switching between GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and automatic synchronization from within the phone application menu. We do recommend that you backup all personal information before installing the update. (source: Talk Android)
