Nokia to release its own Sidekick?

“Nokia has got a patent for the mobile device resembling T-Mobile Sidekick. The new device differs in the opening mechanism: you have to revolve the device at 180 degrees, while with the standard Sidekick you just slide the display to reveal the QWERTY-keyboard. It’s unclear whether such design is more convenient or it’s just an attempt to go beyond the patents of Danger, the maker of the original Sidekick. Unfortunately there is no info when Nokia’s Sidekick-like device will come to stores.” via

SkyeQuiKey For Symbian S60 Review!

“SkyeQuiKey integrates itself seamlessly into the S60 3rd Edition active standby screen and leaps into life only when you use the number/alphabetic keys. As with standard predictive text practice, it scans for all possible matches based on the letters (or numbers) assigned to each key, within your Contacts store, within the application set (i.e. program names) and Web bookmarks.So, in the example above, typing ‘3283’ (spelling out ‘Dave’) brings up an appropriate set of matches, and very quickly too, more or less as fast as you can enter the characters – very impressive. From the matches found, one keypress takes you to the right record in Contacts or you can create a new message or make a voice call directly from the SkyeQuiKey interface.Taking another example above, typing ‘673’ (‘Ope’) instantly finds the Opera Mini web browser in its matches, which is what I was after, with a press on the d-pad launching it. Very slick. ” Read more here:
