How to install ONLY the application that you want to BlackBerry without checking for device application updates

"Can’t I only install the app that I want and NOTHING else?"
Have you said this to yourself? Well, I also did.

When you want to install an app through the Application Loader on Desktop Manager it is first “Searching for available device software”.

Well, I don’t want it to. And I don’t want it to install any updates. If you also don’t; or just want to install your app in a lesser amount of time, then follow the steps below.

Comparison of Features of Android Phones on the Market

Here is a list of Google Android Phones on the market and the info I gathered on them from the internet. Rather than visiting a lot of sites to get this info; -which I have done myself- I thought it would be handy for them to be all in one page.

So here it is 🙂

Developing .NET applications for Symbian?

I have always wanted this to be true and it seems like it is going to be! 🙂

I know; some time ago AppForge CrossFire was able to do that, however for some reason, it was discontinued and its intellectual property was sold to Oracle. At the time, I was new into these things and didn’t have the chance to try it out.

However, it seems that I have another chance now! The company redFIVElabs has released a product named Net60 that enables mobile application developers to use the .NET Compact Framework 1.0 to develop applications targeting the broad range of S60-based Nokia smartphones.

You can try out the trial application at here. For .NET developers out there, this is their best bet, since there is no built-in support for using .NET to develop mobile applications that run on Symbian devices.

Google Android GPS Application “Enkin”

2 guys that are studying Computational Visualistics in Koblenz, Germany made a really interesting mobile application with the Google Android SDK for the Google Android Developer challenge. Actually it seems that it has been a while, but better late than never, eh?

” ‘Enkin’ introduces a new handheld navigation concept. It displays location-based content in a unique way that bridges the gap between reality and classic map-like representations. It combines GPS, orientation sensors, 3D graphics, live video, several web services and a novel user interface into an intuitive and light navigation system for mobile devices.”

Watching the video, I am impressed 🙂 This application should be integrated into the handset, it eliminates the boring 2D view of traditional apps.

Now that I look at the Top 50, it seems these guys didn’t win anything at the Developer Challenge. Sad for them 😦 They must have worked a lot to get the application working.
