Goodbye, Hello UIQ3!

Yes, indeed, its officially dead a long long time ago. Late October this year, Patrick Olson from Sony Ericsson announced that they wont be realeasing new updates for their UIQ3 Smartphone platfoms (G900,G700,W960i,P990i,p1i etc) at the Symbian Smartphone Show in London. I really don’t know their primary reason but it looks like these UIQ3 babies wasnt able to attract the masses or fanbases. As what Patrick Olson said,

“Or rather it didn’t make it”

Sounds that its already official huh? Is it really RIP to our beloved UIQ3s?

I dont think so. This smartphone that we’re holding right now still has a future. It might wont get anymore updates but who cares? Afterall it’s rock solid stable as hell!

We wont stop here. . .

Please stay tuned for more updates.

Hacking Hidden Folders: P1i

Today I’ll be starting to post some useful tips on modding my beloved Sony Ericsson P1i. I know its a bit late but there are a lot of new P1i users out there that yet to be enlightened that their lil baby can actually be modded to its fullest.

Now I hear you say, “Why Sony Ericsson P1i of all the phones?”. Well for some reason, its operating system (UIQ3) has been hacked by some rocket scientists who came back from Mars in 2007. Im not that sure though of the date but the most important part is that it has been hacked and there are holes that has been opened that Sony Ericsson tried to hide from their patrons.

The 21st Awit Awards Night

Last night we were given free invites to the “21st Awit Awards” held in Eastwood City, Libis. We weren’t able to take digital-high-end photos cause we still haven’t got any of those DLSR cams that shoots flawless photos. We were at the front row seats and have our “media” IDs. So I thought “Why not take pictures?”. And so I took my Sony Ericsson P1i pda phone and started shooting beside the pros. Moral lesson? Don’t spend too much money building your high end rig. lol

*Those pictures (above) were the aftermath of taking photos using Sony Ericcson P1i.

The New Zune

Here goes the first look to a new gens of stuff. Introducing the third-gen of it’s kind – The Microsoft Zune.

It’s basically the same old Zune that most enthusiasts crave for with some, well, not so major changes. There are some new features but they’re just siblings to its old gens.

While Apple is still making prototypes and updates to their ipods/touches, Microsoft just boosts its capacities while dropping its prices. Well, at least there’s still a good news to that. This baby is just about the size of our granny’s ipod measuring 3.6×1.6×0.3in (HWD). Its comes with a bright 1.8in , boasting 320×240 pixel screen.

When it comes to images, this Zune can display a pretty sharp, crisps images supporting JPG files. I just don’t prefer a small screen but this surely will satisfy your eyes. And oh, did I hear you asking if it even go wireless? Well the answer’s yes dear. It can be sync to an 802.11g WiFi.

This player aint that bad at all. But theres still the feel of an ipod when Im touching it. I just dunno why but it really dissapoints me when players nowaday do look like ipods. Should we blame Apple about it?

Nikon D60 Review

With 2.5 inches screen, Nikon’s D60 is a great camera with superb picture quality.

Anti-dust system & Eye sensor

What I like about Nikon D60, it has an anti-dust system. When you see the anti-dust system symbol appears, it’s cleaning the sensor and it is kept clean automatically. This feature is very important to a professional photographer. It prevents you from doing some editing. It also has a eye-sensor that turns off the LCD soon as the optical viewfinder is used.

Small and Compact

Nikon D60 only weighs 495g. The size of this camera is smaller compared to other SLR. So it easy to carry around.


Also, Nikon D60 is so simple. It reduced the number of buttons which make it user-friendly.


Another highlight feature of this product is its supplied lens. Nikon D60 comes with Nikkor DR 18-55mm Vibration Reduction (VR) lens. This is a good feature for people who have shaky hands like me. Not only this lens is so compact and lightweight, it also focuses quickly and it has a built-in optical image stabilizer. This len’s feature counters handshaking of your camera. It gives you more flexibility when shooting hand-held.

Picture Quality

With 10 megapixes, this camera produces very pretty sharp pictures. With 30 seconds Nikon D60’s maximum shutter speed, it produces superb night pictures. The image quality of this camera is so excellent.

My Opinion

With it’s great features I mentioned above, Nikon D60 is absolutely a recommendable camera.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T300

Finding the right camera is not easy, especially when there are so many cameras to choose from. My sister recommends Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T300. So I decided to check it out.


  • 10.1 Mega Pixels with Super HAD CCD
  • Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar with 5x Optical Zoom
  • 3.5″ 16:9 Wide and Touch LCD Screen
  • Smile Shutter
  • Intelligent Scene Recognition
  • Bionz Image Processing Engine
  • Super SteadyShot
  • High ISO3200 Sensitivity with Clear RAW Noise Reduction

DSC-T300 is the latest in its line of touch-controlled slim digital cameras.

Smile Shutter: Sony’s revolutionary Smile Shutter Feature is designed to automatically snap only when the person is smiling. Simply select Smile Shutter from the scene selection mode and you are ready to shoot picture-prefect smiles.

Also, this camera can differentiate between the faces of children and adults. Simply select “child priority” or “adult priority,” and the camera will automatically detect up to eight faces in the camera frame, adjusting focus, exposure, white balance and flash for the subjects that matter most.

But if you are into details, DSC T300 has a problem with picture quality. Photos generally look soft and noisy, with haloing along edges. Picture quality does not quite match up to the very best.

LOVE: Fast performance; tons of handy image editing and playback features; smile shutter feature; 3.5-inch touch screen Clear Photo LCD PlusTM LCD screen for easy navigation and framing

HATE: Soft, noisy photos

The bottom line: If your main consideration is design, as long as the camera can still take a decent snap, then the DSC T300 is well worth considering.
