Samsung is certainly producing high quality products when it comes to the world of digital cameras. And now Samsung prepares a new digital camera, the NX11. Samsung NX11 basically is not too different from Samsung’s previous product of first mirror-less interchangeable lens camera, the NX10. The NX11 is compatible with the new i-Function lens and will come with an 18-55mm i-Function lens, along with a couple of new i-Function lenses, a 20-50mm zoom silver color and a 20mm pancake lens.

i-Function will deliver a perfect picture at your fingertips by offering an easy method of controlling camera. New i-Function system enables you to use left hand when you want to change camera’s advanced settings courtesy of a button built into i-Function lens. You don’t have to take your camera off the target. A change in grip design of NX11 also delivers usability that makes shooting easier and more comfortable. NX 11 is simplifying the search for best mode for each lens with its lens priority mode dial. No matter what you are going to shoot, either photos of large groups or panoramic pictures you just need one press-and-sweep motion.

Other hardware specifications of NX11 include a built-in electronic VGA (640×480) viewfinder and built-in flash. It is also equipped with a 3.0” AMOLED LCD display. You need $649 to get this camera which comes bundled with a zoom lens.

Download Themes Just Black : Themes For Nokia E72

It’s been quite some time since I posted up some new themes, probably because I haven’t seen many that have really caught my eye. However, in the past few weeks there have been a handful of Nokia E72 themes posted up over at and some of them are beautiful. The simple & lightweight theme called "Just Black" is my current favorite and a few others look great as well.

To celebrate, the Ovi Daily App blog is having a ‘scavenger hunt’ in which you can win yourself one. If you are not in the Unites States and your hunt bears fruit, you will be entitled on a Nokia E72, a device I love.

Ovi Store June Stats: Nokia's Low-Mid End Devices Rule The Roost

Off the cuff when you think of apps stores, you think of (at least I do) people with high end smartphones busy downloading the latest apps but in reality as these stats show, its about the volume which comes from low-mid end devices that may or may not be smartphones. One thing that I have noted over the last few years is that the average guy on the street may have no clue what apps are, but if you look at his phone, he will have a few custom themes on it and I can image such would be items people are downloading off the Ovi Store for devices like the Nokia 2700 Classic.

Bill goes on to provide a few highlights which are reproduced below:

Microsoft Communicator Mobile Comes To Nokia’s Eseries

The first result of Nokia and Microsoft’s alliance to build productivity solutions is the Microsoft Communicator Mobile for Nokia’s Eseries devices. The first ones to benefit would be the E72 and the E52 and the application would be available from the Ovi Store. In future, the app will come preloaded on new devices.

Communicator Mobile enables people to see their colleagues’ availability, and click to communicate with them using the best method, from IM to email, text to phone call. The names and status of colleagues are embedded directly into the devices’ contacts application, enabling people to update their own presence, start and join instant messaging sessions, and begin calls directly from the contact card.

“This application really provides a much more efficient way to work with others as you can see if someone is busy or available, and the best way to start a conversation with them,” says Ukko Lappalainen, Vice President at Nokia. “It also meets all of the requirements for enterprise: cost effective to implement, secure, familiar and reliable.”
