Today i tried to play around with my new X6. While installing Ovi Suite 2.2 to use with X6, i discover that N900 is supported. In the past, N900 has to use the outdated PC Suite. PC Suite doesn’t to be uninstalled while installing Ovi Suite and can coexist on the same PC but cannot be used at the same time. Ovi Suite 2.2 has some functionality for N900
With Ovi Suite 2.2, i no longer need to use the old Nokia Map Loader to get new map for my N900.
I’ve also just discovered that X6 doesn’t support chargin when connecting through USB. My X6 actually ran out of battery while connecting to my PC. Luckily X6 and N900 uses the same BL-5J battery and i have to resort to swapping battery to keep one of the device alive at least for today.
i downloaded UK England map for both my N900 and my wife’s X6. We plan to use Ovi Maps to navigate our way while attending Nokia Developer Summit. One idea come across my mind that there should have an app that showcase the Nokia World and Nokia Developer Summit agenda on the phone.
i also plan to stay in touch with my wife in UK using instant messenger (we plan to use skype) which is supported by both phones. UK Vodaphone offers a pay as you use go sim card where the data plan is cheap at 50p per day. I think that will be enough for both of us.
