For installing an application directly to your Communicator, a special page is available. To access it,
enter the URL
directly into your Communicator's web browser.
If you are looking for the original software that came wth the
product, or the PC connectivity application, they can still be
found on Nokia's
technical support pages.
Note: This program does not work with Casio's new WQV-3 color version. Anyway, this is not necessary, as the WQV-3 uses the standard IrTranP protocol when sending a picture with the "Ircomm->Send others" option. This means that you can use the standard "Digitial Camera Connectivity" program by Nokia to connect to the watch, and that it also works with the 9210 without additional software. [Thanks to Simon Laburda for the hint.]
To make using the program as simple as possible, it will always download the picture that was last taken (or viewed in "Play" mode) with the watch. Once the picture has been transfered to the Communicator, it can be stored in the "Downloaded Files\Contact Images" folder as a JPEG file. It can be optionally clipped to better match the aspect ratio of the image field in a contact.
Thanks to Daniel Plakosh for pointing me towards the similarities between the wrist camera's protocol and the IrDA frame layout.
Following the lead of Nokia's other digicam-related applications, the program installs itself as an entry in the System menu.
Note that images will be stripped out if you send a docunment by SMS or email, and they will also not be transferred to the PC (just like all other formatting).
This program (a kind of "PPP Powertoys") gives access to a few PPP-related settings that would otherwise only be accessible using the SDK's INI file editor. It can be used for enabling two different features:
The program installs itself as an entry in the System menu. After installing and launching the program, press the Help button for instructions and things you should know.
More information about using this program can be found in the FAQ.
A 3D graphics demo for Geos. In this sample program, you can walk through a maze of texture-mapped walls. This program is based on a Macintosh version by Stefan Becker published in the German c't magazine (issue 2/96).
Source code is available on the general Geos page.
Note: As you can tell from this, LOLA looks like a trimmed down version of Arto Holopainen's Graphic Point, which already does a lot more than LOLA. The reason why I am still offering it for download here is that I had most of the code completed by the time Arto released his program, and I don't want to see it completely wasted. Anyway, I'm not planning to do much more feature work on LOLA beyond bug fixing.
The LOLA icon appears courtesy of Dan Elgaard. :-)
With this commandline program for the PC, you can use RT24-compressed files from other sources and modify them to be used on the Communicator as well. The easiest way for creating RT24 files on the PC is using the Win 95 codec that comes with Netscape's CoolTalk program. This adds support for saving RT24 to the standard Audio Recorder in Windows.
To put this in perspective, RT24 allows you to store almost an hour of speech in one megabyte on the Communicator. Even compressed WAV files attached to mails (e.g. from a "unified messaging" system) could be acceptable this way.
Note: the Communicator's playback application still limits individual files to 64k size after compression. This corresponds to about 3:30 min of speech per file. Also, keep in mind that this is not a program to compress any kind of WAV file - it can only be used on files alredy in the RT24 format.
Source code is included. See README.TXT for more information.
To access the value of an INI file entry, you have to enter the "category" and the "key" belonging to it. When you hit "Edit", a new window opens that displays the current value of the key. You can edit the value and select "OK", or use "Cancel" to abort without changing anything.
"Delete" removes the user-defined value of the key, reverting to the ROM default (if any).
The program installs itself as an entry in the System menu.Note: If you don't know what you're doing, it is quite easy to mess up your phone with such a tool, so be warned... keep a backup ready if you have any valuable data on the device.
With this VNC Viewer for Geos, you can remotely access a machine running a version of the VNC Server (e.g. Windows 95, 98, NT, Unix with X-Windows, Macintosh, Acorn RISC OS) from a Nokia 9000/9000i/9110 smartphone connected to the Internet (typically via PPP dial-in). VNC was developed by ORL, the Olivetti & Oracle Research Laboratory, which has now become AT&T Laboratories Cambridge. The VNC homepage can be found here.
This is a screenshot of a what a Windows 95 desktop looks like on the Nokia Communicator:
(For those wo remember it, this is the program I demoed on the 1998 Basel meeting.)
Ericsson's WebOnAir system (formerly used by German provider "D2 privat" under the name "SpeedProxy") is a proxy server that optimizes web pages for devlivery to mobile devices (typically, laptops hooked up to a mobile phone). It supports three fundamental functions:
While the third option requires a special software to be running on the "client" end (which is not available for the Communicator, and possibly not even feasible without slowing down the web browser even more), the first two can be enabled by telling the proxy server to do the right thing whenever requesting a page.
WOATEST enables you to turn on a "good" set of options for the Communicator when working with a WebOnAir proxy. Please note that this is only useful if your Internet provider is operating a WebOnAir proxy, otherwise these settings will simply be ignored.
In addition to installing this program, you will also have to modify your browser settings on the Communicator to use the WebOnAir server as a proxy. The necessary settings for the German D2 network are provided on the main screen of the application.
Keep in mind that this is somewhat of a "proof of concept" application that doesn't provide as much of a speedup as possible with a dedicated WebOnAir client. Anyway, for pages which make heavy use of over-engineered HTML, this may already reduce the burden on your Communicator by letting you download smaller HTML pages and images.
[Please note that this program is in German because the only operational WebOnAir installation I knew of was running on a German network. Anyway, all the German you need is knowing that "Aktiv" means "active", and "Inaktiv" means "not active". ;-)]
