Thank you for being avid readers!

It's been a really long time since I've posted any updates on this blog.

I've loved using the Nokia XpressMusic 5800 for many years and it truly has served me well. I must also say that I really appreciate all the support from so many readers around the world. It truly is an amazing feeling that I've been able to contribute something to so many.

However, with the release of newer phones and the steady loss of support for Symbian, I've upgraded to a Samsung Galaxy S2 and moved on to the Android platform.
I've created a new blog here that basically shows how to Root and Unlock this spectacular phone.

This blog shall still remain live and I shall try my best to answer any questions pertaining to the apps I've reviewed in the past.

Slide IT Beta keyboard for Nokia Touchscreen phones.

So I've been testing out this new "keyboard" app on the Nokia 5800 for awhile and so far I'm fairly impressed with it.
Basically it's a new method to type on your phone, instead of clicking/tapping individual letters, just keep on sliding your finger/stylus till you cover all the letters of the word.
Check out the video below for a quick demonstration.

To download you will have to go to the developer's site here and input your name, email and IMEI. They will then send you the application to try.
