    N95 Accelerometer & JSR-256

    In the last two weeks or so, information has started to dribble out about the accelerometer in the N95. From various posts & blogs, it appears that:

    1. An "R&D"-level API is available for download that will give access to accelerometer data on current N95 firmware. This API is different from the one exposed by the 5500's sensor plugin.

    2. A future firmware update will enable the N95 to work with the 5500's sensor plugin.

    3. Neither the 5500 or the N95 currently support JSR-256.

    For my application, the N95 is the "holy grail". It's the first device to contain both a 3-axis accelerometer and GPS.

    At a minimum, I'd like to see the 5500's sensor API available on the N95. Better still would be JSR-256 support. I've done extensive work with the 5500's accelerometer, and I've been tinkering with JSR-256 on the Sony-Ericsson K850 (which sadly doesn't support JSR-179).

    But the N95 is the first device that could really put it all together. Can anyone say more about firmware plans for the N95 and whether the C++ or Java sensor APIs will be available there, and when? Given all of the iPhone hype, it seems crazy not to exploit this capability of the N95 to its fullest.

    Hi Tony,

    I don't think anyone can say anything publicly. Do you have a business development manager? It sounds like you need to check out the Forum Nokia Pro or at least Forum Nokia Launchpad

    If you want to write me directly I can pass the information to the heads of these programs designed to help developers get a jump start.

    Do not know about the Symbian API plans and cannot comment on those.
    From Java point of view, JSR-256 will not be available on N95

    Re: N95 Accelerometer & JSR-256

    Gentleman,

    I would like to ask to put JSR256 - Sensor API available to Nokia NSeries phones.
    N95 HAS the sensors, so why not to make available ????

    I saw on previous post some "advices" as : "use python" , "Use C++".
    This is NOT a real option. My applications are Java, not python. Most of us are not building Demos with a single class and 10 lines code, but real applications for mobile devices.
    If check at Nokia forums , Java posts counts are 4 (FOUR) times greater than Python (104,000 vs 27,000). There is not even counts for C posts. We are the real developers mass, not the others !!

    If I have to write it in C, perhaps I should focus on Apple's IPhone clients first, and leave N Series for some time in the future, perhaps...

    Please, Make IT !

    Hi AcesBR! Welcome to Nokia Developer Discussion Boards!!

    Appreciate your interest in Nokia devices and Java ME. I can't promise you any thing now, but will take your request to the concerned team and we can look forward positively for the upcoming devices.

    If you are interested in both JSR256/JSR179 a SonyEricsson is what you need.
    All newer SonyEricsson supports both JSR256/JSR179...

    C905 is the latest example...

    JSR179 is well supported by nokia but there is no JSR256 device from nokia.

    See there for a list of supported phones.

    Re: N95 Accelerometer & JSR-256

    My understanding is that the N97 will be the first device with JSR256. Expect the N97 in Q3 of this year.

    There is some information here.

    Cheers,
    Graham.
