best video (media) player for the mobiles – CorePlayer

Posted in Entertainment, nokia, open source, software, Technology by notoveryet on September 22, 2009

As I am going to buy Nokia 5530 (based on S60 v5)….

there is a problem, CorePlayer is not released for S60 v5 yet..

so, where would I play the mkv (H.264, vorbis) videos? (there is no alternative to this holy player)

for those who don’t know what CorePlayer is: CorePlayer is collection of best codecs available in the world and it plays almost all the formats you ask it,

it’s a little brother of VLC and MPlayer.

I am planning to compress my favourite movies to 200 MBs each in the above mentioned formats…. and keep in my upcoming phone…

so, I wish CorePlayer release their new version as soon as possible…. 😉


small update on nokia 5530

Posted in Technology by notoveryet on September 15, 2009

just two days ago my friend has bought Nokia 5800 for Rs 13000/=,

that makes me say, nokia 5530 gotta be less than 12000

nevertheless, there is 5800…. if something goes wrong and 5530 comes with a higher price tag I will go for it’s big brother…

but, i have to wait till diwali, since the prices here in mumbai (Maharashtra) are quite high…

arond 1500 rs higher than other states including Delhi…

so i’ll to wait till then.

I am really excited to get playing 640×360, H.264 AVC compressed movies on it… 😀

This is the phone which I fell in love with at first sight and the first phone from Nokia, i think i would love to buy …..

may be because, i heard the rumour that it’s going to be priced at around Rs 12000/=

and the design is superb….

i was waiting for openmoko GTA4 based phone to come, but now i think i can live with this beauty for a while….

let’s wait till nokia announce the price….
