Review Nokia E71

E71Following on from the E61,E61i and E62 Nokia have released a largely updated model E71 with new form factor with some exciting new innards. I’ve only been using the Nokia E71 for a few days now and it is my first experience of the Nokia Symbian operating system. My experience is limited to a couple of years on Sony Ericsson, Palm and for the last two years Windows Mobile. Here is an idea of what to expect from Nokia’s business class phone.

Carling’s iPint most popular free iPod app.

Something a little different for a bit of weekend fun. If you’ve got an iPod Touch or an iPhone you may have seen an application in the Apple Store called iPint. iPint is a fun little game that allows players to earn themselves a virtual pint of Carling!

The idea is a pretty simple one, using the motion sensor on the iPod you have to easy a pint of Carling Lager down a slippery bar top. There are obstacles along the way to make the task more tricky and there are 3 levels of difficulty. Once you navigate the pint in to the hands or a waiting punter you earn yourself a frosty pint which you can also ‘drink’ using the motion sensor!

Since its launch just over a week ago Caling’s iPint application has rocket to the number one spot in the Apple Store free Apps chart.

Carling is one of the first UK brands to develop and distribute a third party application following Apple’s release of it’s SDK.

This fun little application will go down a storm with your friends whether you are in the pub or at work. Everyone wants to give it a go!

Thanks to the guys and girls at Hill & Knowlton for sending us the App. (and an iPod Touch to play it on!)

If you want to see the game in action then head over to the Carling iPint site.

iPhone… Mickey Mouse iPhone

mickey-apple-phone

Some like it in white, some managed to get it in black but now its available in Disney. Whilst it’s not exactly the iPhone and encompasses a T9 keyboard. Its insteresting to speculate if Apple has actually made this and if Disney really did endorse it. Seems a sensible combination and everything a kid could want. No specs yet but all the pics I could find are after the break. Thanks Cellphone9.
