Nokia N9 – Bengali Fonts

Nokia has done a good job supporting Bengali fonts into mobile phones , compared to other major Mobile brands in Bangladesh’s enormous cell phone market. With the N9 , bangla experience is a joy.

With full bangla character support on web pages, reading sites like prothom-alo  and other bangla based fonts are pretty good. Bangla support on RSS feeds and in applications  are flawless.

      

Bengali Numbers are also availble as the Clock on the upper status bar of the N9 interface , even on the lockscreen’s standby clock, which is pretty neat and would make many people exclaim some “wows!” none the less . Calendar looks neat thanks to the sharp numbers.

     

The fun doesnot end here, the calculator application is simply amazing thanks to the bengali fonts. Works perfect with the fonts and a smooth interface makes it the first bengali calculator on a mobile device. Hats off on that to Nokia , especially Meego OS for supporting the beautiful crisp Bengali Fonts.

    

Meego OS being open source , chances remain open for possible Bangladeshi developers to implement a true bangla user interface on the N9’s brilliant Swipe UI and great Qt based applications for the N9. It would really be welcome if the Meego team at Nokia would come up with improving bangla language support in the main UI for Bangladesh.

Nimbuzz v3.3 – Symbian UPDATE

One of the first things I’m sure you will notice is the beautifully redesigned Home Screen. We made the icons bigger and rearranged them in grid view so you can access the most important functions with a single touch. Even more exciting is that we added three new icons to the list: Recent Chats, N-World and Groupchat ;) .

Here is the complete overview of Nimbuzz 3.3 for Nokia Symbian phones:

  • Redesigned Home Screen for fast access to your favorite features
  • Three new icons added: Recent Chats, N-World and Groupchat
  • Block contacts that annoy you
  • New “Notifiable” icon – the green half moon
  • Change your password from the inside the app
  • 30% faster login

The icon with a half green moon stands for Notifiable and it will appear only next to your Nimbuzz contacts that closed the Nimbuzz app but can still receive push (on the iPhone and Android)  or  Ping notifications (on the Java and Symbian phones).

So when you see this icon remember that we will push your messages to your friend but it might take a while for them to see it since their app is closed.
