I just found a bug in Samsung Galaxy S that will show the homescreen and applications page in landscape mode.
By default, both the homescreen and application page are in portrait mode and we are not able to tilt the screen into landscapre mode by rotating the phone. After my discovery of this landscape mode in both views I think Samsung fixed the UI (User Interface) on purpose which I find no apparent reason of doing so.
Below is the video I took to show you how the homescreen and applications page look in landscape mode :-
I would love to have the ability to change the orientation by tilting the phone, hopefully we’ll see this landscape mode in Froyo (Android 2.2).
The long anticipating Swype input is now available for Nokia Phones, thanks for the collaboration between Swype Inc and Nokia Lab. I’m a long time fan of Swype since my first experience of using it on Samsung Galaxy S. Now I’m glad that I can use it on my Nokia N97 even though it’s still under beta testing.
Currently, Swype for Nokia supports the following Nokia S60 5th Edition touch screen phones :-
- Nokia 5800
- Nokia 5230
- Nokia X6
- Nokia N97
- Nokia N97mini
I recorded my first swype on Nokia N97, check it out :-
