One of the main gripes of Motorola’s latest flagship beast is it’s problem with getting a proper auto focus with its 5 Mp shooter. This has been the case since it’s launch and it now seems, to have been magically(through a silent over-the-air update actually) to have been fixed, until the 11th of December that is. The strange thing is that according to Dan Morrill, from Google’s Android team, the bug is related to a time-stamp bug:
“According to Google Engineer Dan Morrill, there is an unfortunate bug in the Droid’s auto focus routine. It improperly rounds a timestamp used in the calculations, which somehow throws the entire focusing process off. Today it works, and tomorrow it will work…but 24.5 days from now, the bug will be back.” Continue reading “Droid Autofocus bug is the weirdest bug. Ever.”
The Nokia N79 has just been updated to a new firmware version, V31.002. But again, as usual, Nokia hasn’t released any official changelog as it was with the last few firmware updates but you can take a look at this page on the Nokia Discussions Forum where some users have been reporting all the bug fixes they have found
The HTC HD2 has finally shown up on the T-Mobile website and according to the website its due to arrive this month so that means that it should be available anytime within 28 days. Funny part is that Coolsmartphone seems to have found some mistakes from the post. Here are a few of them:
- the device is mistakenly called the HTC Touch HD2
- the picture is actually of the original HTC HD
- the device supposedly has ‘Android Market’
- screen specifications are incorrect
Finally, after a long 2 year wait, Apple has officially announced the Apple iPhone with Unicom as its official network provider. But, as it always is with Apple, the Chinese versions of the iPhone will be shipping without what may be it’s most important feature, WiFi.
Yes, apple have released a WiFi-less iPhone, something that I consider very important since the iPhone’s software is kinda designed to always work best on WiFi networks. But if you Chinese guys(and ladies) can live without WiFi then you can always pick them up at 4,999 yuan($730) and 6,999 yuan($1,025). This pricing is quite strange since a regular iPhone 3GS(with wifi) can easily be bought for $835 in the black.
But this WiFi-less version of the iPhone may soon disapear considering that this initial batch was built when the Chinese government had it’s WiFi ban in force and since this was recently lifted I guess it won’t be soon before we see WiFi coming to these chinese iPhones. Maybe this is why the folks over at 163.com are reporting that there aren’t many people rushing to buy the iPhones.
AAS is reporting that Nokia’s camera flagship is to have the face detection feature in its next firmware upgrade. This feature, if it is implemented, will enable the N86, as the name suggests, detect a face and increase focus over it. Face Detection has long been available to samsung devices and now for the first time on a Nokia device. Have a look at the screenshot below for further proof.

Good news for our US iPhone readers. AT&T are slowly rolling out MMS for it’s customers. That’s 2 whole weeks ahead of the announced 25th September day. MMS support should be available slowly for all their customers, since at the moment, very few people have reported that their MMS has been activated.
