In conversation with Engadget's tnkgrl, I postulated that Nokia had spoiled the Symbian world rotten with the launch of the 808 PureView.
Well, that was a frustrating half an hour. It's been years since I had to be consciously aware of having to close other apps down on a Symbian device in order for a game to run, but Galaxy War here will swallow up RAM like it's going out of fashion, so best humour it and close down Web, Gravity and anything else heavyweight.
Maybe you're reading this at your desk and feeling stressed and stiff? What you need are a few good stretches.
You may remember that I recently put the new Blackberry Q10 and the existing Nokia E6 communicator head to head? The outcome was positive for the Q10, with cutting edge internals, despite feelings about the sideways jump from Symbian to the still immature Blackberry OS 10.
One of the staples in the Symbian world since the days of 'Series 60' has been Epocware's Handy Safe Pro - the original encrypted database of private info, synced happily between multiple Symbian devices and a Windows desktop.
17 months after the announcement of the Nokia 808 PureView, with 41 megapixel sensor, lossless zoom and oversampling, it seems that we have a date for the launch of a sister device cousin running Windows Phone 8, with Nokia effectively confirming the rumours about the device codenamed 'EOS' with its 'zoom'-themed invite to tech sites to a New York event on July 11th.
It's tough to know where Build Blocks is pitched - my gut feel is that it's aimed at small children, but then there's the whole teenage Minecraft phenomenon, so who knows, maybe an older sibling will fancy a go too? All I know is that it's creative, colourful and yes, very blocky.
Led by the consummate CuteTube, there's no shortage of YouTube clients of various kinds on Symbian, though changes at Google's end have meant that not all still work properly.
File this under industry news of interest, but Samsung has just announced what would be considered an April Fool's joke if launched a few months earlier - the 'Galaxy S4 zoom' packs a full telescopic (10x) optical zoom mechanism onto the back of an otherwise fairly standard Android device.
You may remember that a new version of Nokia Music, the company's Symbian client for discovering new music, rolled out a month ago for Belle Feature Pack 2 devices? That (Qt-fied) update, v16.
