Black N82 – Now official!

The Black N82 is now official and comes with Location tagging out of the box.

This jet black multimedia computer enables people to “geotag” the images they capture – allowing them to not only be saved by date, but by location as well.

Taking advantage of its integrated A-GPS functionality and high resolution camera, the Nokia N82 automatically tags images with capture location metadata, making it possible to view the capture location on a map either on the Internet or on the device itself. When it comes to sharing, consumers can upload their pictures or videos directly from their Nokia N82 to services like Share on Ovi, Flickr or YouTube. By installing Nokia’s exclusive and free Sports Tracker application, consumers can share their whereabouts and travel route with others on the Sports Tracker website – including the capture locations of images.

Now, if only Nokia would let me trade in my silver N82 for the black one. Heck, its even 50 euros cheaper than the silver version.

Yahoo! Go 3.0beta still doesn’t support N82

Earlier this month, sometimes between 4th and 6th, Yahoo released a beta version of their next-generation mobile application which is now more like a widget platform.

This means that developers can write mobile applets and plug it into the Yahoo Go application, thus expanding the options of the average consumer. Funny enough, Yahoo still doesn’t acknowledge the existence of the N82 device. Hmm. . . what’s wrong?

Yahoo! There’s a phone called the N82 please.

Just got my shiny new N82 and couldn’t wait to try out Yahoo! GO on it. I hooked up to the Internet via WiFi, navigated to Yahoo! GO’s homepage and got a message telling me my phone wasn’t supported when I tried the download – WTF?!

I checked up their site and realized Nokia N82 wasnt listed among supported phones. Well, I wanted to write their customer care to notify them of the phone’s existence, LOL. I didnt find one – maybe I wasnt patient enough.

I’ll be posting reviews as time goes on about the N82 in this space. Just in case, it costs nothing to add the RSS to your favorite aggregator.
