N97 memory optimization

I don't re-post other blogs much but this is a good one. I followed the recommendations and definitely helped to clean up my phone and get some memory back.

What I appreciate about my Nokia N97

I know everyone is down on Nokia and say they are running behind Android and the Iphone but I can come up with some things that I really like. I have an Android device and owned an Iphone and Iphone 3G but still came back to Nokia. I have owned a Nokia n95 (favorite), Nokia E62, Nokia E71, Nokia 5800 and now the N97.

Well, here they are:
- Battery life
- qwerty keyboard
- awesome camera
- tethering capability
- Gravity for twitter
- facebook just works
- widgets are cool
- d-pad, reason i did not go for the N97 mini
- free navigation
- slider and will sit on flat surface with screen up
- screen viewable in direct sunlight

I'm sure I can come up with a lot more but this was what I jotted down today while thinking about it for a few minutes. What I really, really appreciate is Battery Life!

Palm Pre - switch between apps faster

Just found this little setting, not sure how I missed it before. By turning on Advanced Guestures you can swipe through full-sized cards. Go to Screen & Lock settings and change Switch Applications to on.

Pandora on the Palm - great use case

I had some outdoor work to do this last weekend and found a great way to use Pandora while doing yard work around the house. My Palm Pre was able to stay on my wireless network while playing Pandora and therefore keep me entertained while trimming shrubs and other yard work. For those of you not familiar with Pandora, it is an online radio that plays music that is similar to what you request. It has been around since 2000 in the form of the "Music Genome Project" and you should really check it out.
