Nokia Lumia 920 available in November 2012 in South Africa

Nokia SA announced yesterday that the Nokia Lumia 920 and 820 will arrive in South Africa in November 2012. The phone will be available from both Vodacom and MTN stores. The phone was only recently launched by Nokia in September 2012 and it appears that South Africa is one of the first markets to receive the new device.

The first wave of Lumia 920 pre-orders sold out in Italy (total number of units unknown) and so did the second wave of units (again, unknown number of units). PhoneHouse in France rated the Lumia 920 as the top-selling device from 10-14 October 2012. Pre-orders for the Lumia 920 are also available in Germany and Russia.

What I like about the Lumia 920:

  • Dual-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 CPU and Adreno 225 GPU,
  • 1 Gb RAM and 32 Gb internal storage,
  • 4.5 inches curved IPS LCD display (768 by 1280 pixels; ~332 ppi pixel density) with Corning Gorilla Glass protection,
  • Super-fast Long Term Evolution or LTE (4G) cellular connectivity, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, DLNA & Wi-Fi hotspot,
  • Wireless charging (click here to find out more),
  • Near Field Communication (NFC),
  • Nokia City Lens augmented reality app and service (overlays information about restaurants and businesses every time you point the camera at a street),
  • 8.7 MP “PureView” camera with “floating” Carl Zeiss lens, 1080P @30fps HD video and Optical Image Stabilization (OIS),
  • Built-in gyro sensor,
  • Polycarbonate, injection molded cover that is scratch-resistant, and
  • 2000 mAh battery (400 hours on standby mode, up to 10 hours of 3G talk time and up to 67 hours of music playback time).

For the full phone specs, visit GSM Arena and Phone Arena. Check out this video for a preview of the phone. GSM Arena stated that the screen pixels update “up to 2.5x faster” than other LCD screens and is also the brightest screen on a smartphone. It is “super sensitive” too and can be used whilst wearing gloves or with long fingernails. Also check out this video where a banana is used as a stylus. The PureMotion HD+ technology automatically adjusts the screen tone and brightness according to the ambient light. The pixel density is 332 ppi, compared to 306 ppi for the Samsung Galaxy SIII and 326 ppi for the Apple iPhone 5.

Nokia’s white paper on the PureMotion technology explains that the Lumia’s 920 in-plane switching (IPS) type liquid crystal display (LCD) uses a higher voltage to drive each pixel, thus reducing the transition time (from 23 to < 9 ms) for the pixel to change colour. This results in improved video quality and less blurry video as the screen is capable of rendering video at 60 fps.

In bright sunlight, the phone’s ambient light sensor causes the backlit display to maximise its luminance mode (i.e. 20% brighter than normal), thus resulting in higher contrast and brightness levels. Combined with the screen’s very low reflectance, the Lumia 920 works well in bright sunlight. This feature is completely automatic and requires no user intervention to improve readability in direct sunlight. Check out this video which compares the display to an HTC One X under bright light.

The 1280 by 768 screen has a 15:9 aspect ratio capable of viewing 16:9 content, with 7% more pixels than a standard 720P or 1280 by 720 pixel display. The super-sensitive touch technology adapts its sensitivity according to user input method, making touch usage faster, more natural and accurate. The touch screen can be operated using a fingernail, which is important for those with long nails. The 1.1 mm thick Synaptic 3202 touch controller is behind the Lumia’s super-sensitive and multi-touch display.

The camera uses floating lens technology which means the lens is mounted on tiny springs which keeps the camera in focus. Nokia claim the 8.7 MP camera has a large f2.0 aperture which captures between 5 and 10 times more light than any other smartphone. A dedicated camera button is convenient for snapping pics, with zooming now handled by a pinch-to-zoom gesture, rather than an slider interface. The OS comes with some camera-related apps called Bing Vision, CNN iReport and FXSuite, with the latter offering a host of image filter options. An app called Blink takes a burst shot of photos, then picks the one it thinks would look best. For a comparison of smartphone photos in low light conditions, check out this blog and this article.

NFC allows you to “tap” music onto compatible speaker systems and have the music instantly sent to the dedicated audio device. NFC also makes pairing with bluetooth devices such as headsets much simpler. Check out this video (forward to 4m30s) for a demo. Support for NFC within a number of  Windows Phone 8 apps has also been announced. The Vimeo app for WP8 will allow users to share videos using NFC and the YouSendIt app provides the ability to share files using NFC. Visit the NFC World website for more information on NFC.

The Lumia 920 cover is made of polycarbonate (sames as the Nokia N9), which is a new premium plastic pioneered by Nokia. The covers are injection molded, scratch-resistant and available as a glossy or matt finish in five colours (red, yellow, grey, white, black). The plastic cover does not interfere with the internal antennas and wireless charging coil. The camera detailing and side keys are made of ceramic zirconium instead of aluminium, but just as durable and strong.

What I don’t like about the Lumia 920:

  • Bulky (130.3 x 70.8 x 10.7 mm) phone weighing 185 g,
  • No microSD expandable memory or external card slot,
  • Dual LED and not zenon flash,
  • No FM transmitter or FM radio with RDS, and
  • Windows Phone 8 Operating System, with far fewer apps than any other OS.

The wireless charging coil in the Lumia 920 possibly adds quite a bit to that total 185 gram weight. The Samsung Galaxy SIII is 136.6 x 70.6 x 8.6 mm (4.8″ screen), but weighs only 133 grams. Both phones have Corning Gorilla glass protection, which doesn’t explain the weight difference. Click here for a side-by-side comparison of the two phones.

The Windows Phone 8 (WP8) OS is not popular with only 3.2 to 3.5% of the market share in July 2012 (with Android and iOS being the major players). However, the number of devices running Windows Phone increased from 1.3 million (July 2011) to 5.1 million (July 2012) units, which represents a massive 277% increase. Growth in Android devices was only 110% over the same period. There are currently about 100,000 apps in the store, but I’m not sure how many will run natively on WP8.

At the time of writing, there were no videos on www.ifixit.com which detail a full disassembly of the Nokia Lumia 920 (only the Lumia 900). Check out this website for some internal photos of the Lumia 920.

Before I consider buying this phone, the audio quality of the phone’s built-in speaker, its 3 microphones and the 3.5 mm jack is of utmost importance to me. Apparently, the phone also has one single speaker and the speaker on the Lumia 900 is pretty bad. Although the phone has 3 audio capture mics, it cannot record in stereo. So I will wait for GSM Arena to fully test the audio output.

In terms of smart phone sales, Nokia are still in trouble with only 6.3 million units sold up to Q3 2012 (of which 2.9 million units were Lumia series phones), compared to 16.8 million units sold last year (i.e. 63% drop year-on-year). Of the total Nokia mobile phones sold, only 7.6% are smartphones. Nokia Gadgets reported that there is speculation that Nokia may sell its smartphone manufacturing sector.

The total number of units sales decreased by 64% in China (due to the unpopularity of Symbian) and 27% in the Middle East and Africa market. The average selling price of Lumia phones is higher than that of Symbian devices, which indicates a market shift away from Symbian towards Lumia devices. Nokia reported operating losses in Q3, Q2 and Q1 of 2012 and Q4 of 2011.  Its not yet time to panic as Nokia have EUR 3.564 billion in cash and liquid assets, which means they can absorb a few more quarterly losses. Nokia  also expects the fourth quarter (Q4) 2012 to be challenging in terms of smartphone sales. However, the Lumia 920 and 820 shipments and sales should reflect positively in the Q1 announcements in 2013.

Belle Refresh to version 111.040.151

On Monday 15th October, I updated my N8 to the Nokia Belle Refresh version (111.040.1511). I downloaded the 31 Mb update over-the-air (OTA), watched the phone reboot to apply the update and waited patiently for the process to complete. After the reboot, I installed the Social, Search, Calendar and Colorizit updates (6,180 Mb in total).

Nokia began to roll-out this update in late August 2012 but it only became available to Vodacom customers recently. This update must not be confused with Feature Pack 1 (FP1) or Feature Pack 2 (FP2) updates which are available for the latest Symbian devices such as the Nokia 808 PureView. Read the AAS and Daily Mobile articles to find out more about the Belle Refresh update.

Essentially, the Belle Refresh update is selected components of FP1 that can be installed on older Symbian devices such as the Nokia N8. The web browser is updated from version 7.4.2.6 to 8.3.1.4 and has better HTML5 support. A visit to http://html5test.com/ shows the browser now scores 272 (and 9 bonus points) out of 500. For comparison, Google Chrome (v21.0.1180.89 m) on a desktop PC scores 431 (and 13 bonus points). The medium-sized Music Player widget and the facelift to the Music Player app are also welcomed. Certain apps such as Nokia Car Mode, Big Screen, DLNA Play and Colorizit are now built-in to the OS. New widgets such as Photo Wall and Mobile Data Tracker I have enjoyed since March 2012 when I installed them from symbian-developers.net.

Will this be the last update the N8 is likely to receive? According to this article on the Nokia Developer website, the Symbian OS is in maintenance mode. This “announcement” caused quite a stir (just google symbian in maintenance mode), especially if you have recently purchased a Nokia 808 PureView. According to the International Data Corporation (IDC) statistics for the 2nd quarter of 2012, Nokia smartphone sales declined in the past year to 6.6% of the market share. In addition, Symbian is down to 4.4% of market share according to the IDC, which is similar to Canalys’s figure of 4.1%.

My contract is up for renewal in December 2012 and I have begun the search for a new phone, and possibly a new operating system and a new ecosystem experience. The Nokia 808 PureView and the Nokia Lumia 920 are in the mix of smartphones to consider, but the success of Android and other vendors like Samsung are very hard to ignore.

What Belle lacks and how to resolve it

Nokia Belle (or Symbian Belle) represents the best Symbian update to date, with 3 additional home screens and a look and polish which is starting to resemble Android. For example, the pull-down status bar is similar to Android’s notification area, where toggles for mobile data, WiFi, Bluetooth and Silent mode can be found. The camera performance boost which Nokia released through their Beta Labs was also incorporated into Belle. Video recording was increased from 25 to 30 fps, with continuous autofocus in video close-up mode. Another welcome improvement is the ability to add a folder as a shortcut to any home screen. I added this feature to Symbian Anna by running the SPB Shell 3Duser interface. However, Belle still lags behind the latest Android and iOS platforms as it still lacks some key features. Some of these shortcomings may be addressed when Nokia releases the Feature Pack 1 (FP1) update for certain devices running Belle. FP1 will offer the following:

  • A new, faster, HTML5-capable web browser,
  • Certain Microsoft apps,
  • The latest version of Nokia Maps,
  • Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby Headphone experience,
  • Updated multitasking bar and notification bar, and
  • Approximately 20 new widgets.

The Microsoft apps will be rolled out in two stages. In December 2011, Microsoft Lync 2010 Mobile, Microsoft PowerPoint Broadcast, Microsoft OneNote, and Microsoft Document Connection became available for certain devices. More apps will be released in 2012 such as Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint. This represents the first time these apps will become officially available outside of the Windows platform. For more information, click here. So, the “solution” is to wait patiently for Nokia (and Microsoft) to release the added and improvements described above.

In the interim, there are other “solutions” to shortcomings in the Belle OS which can be addressed. For example, the Task Manager in Belle was virtually unchanged and therefore remains a major problem. For “power users”, I recommend installing JBak TaskMan which is  a powerful utility for experienced users. However, the app has some issues with Belle when reading this forum (and this. For “normal users”, I recommend Best TaskMan which provides more functionality than Handy TaskMan.

If you really want to mod your Belle, then you require a hacked phone capable of installing unsigned apps/widgets. This first widget I installed was the gallery widget, similar to the one that will be offered in the FP1 update. Other widgets which I also found useful were the large calendar, mobile data usage tracker and the visual bookmark widgets (click here for more information).

If you get an “Installation not possible. Component already built in” error when installing some widgets (e.g Operator.sis or ShortCutWidget.sis), it means your phone is not fully hacked. A fully hacked phone involves replacing the original installserver.exe in C:\sys\binwith a hacked version. There are two hacked versions of installserver.exe as follows:

  • Il.Socio’s hack of installserver disables ONLY the signature checking to allow installs of unsigned .sis files. It does not ignore the “in-built component” error, which according to Il.Socio, might lead to unpredictable instability. Click here for more detail.
  • The Coderus hack of installserver will ignore this error (i.e. removes checking of built-in components).

Another mod which I enjoyed was a new skin for Swype v2.1 known as Zeta 2.

In conclusion, Symbian users rely heavily on developers and hackers to provide extra functionality which the OS sorely lacks. Although Nokia will support Symbian till 2016,  they can ill afford for developers to move to other platforms. It is websites like Symbian Developers which ultimately keep users interested in Symbian.

The Belle upgrade: Part 2 of 2

This is second part of the Belle upgrade which involves re-installing all my favourite applications. As mentioned before, this task can be problematic as some applications do not function properly on Belle. For example, JBak Taskman and NetQin’s Mobile Guard have compatibility issues with Belle. The first step involved installing my favourite applications from the Nokia Beta Labs, such as Swype v2.1, Nokia Drop v1.4 and Weather Widget v18.15.

I then ran the Nokia Store client on the phone and was prompted to upgrade from v.3.22.053 to v3.22.054 (4.3 Mb download), which I did. Next, I downloaded my favourite widgets such as:
If an application is free on the Nokia Store and you wish to download the app first to PC, just add /download to the URL. For example, change http://store.ovi.com/content/92945 to http://store.ovi.com/content/92945/download (you must be signed in for this to work). If you download a sis.dm file, you need to convert it to a .sis file before installing. Follow the simple instructions given here. Free apps which I  downloaded and installed included:

 Apps which I have paid for were downloaded and re-installed using the Nokia Store client (using WiFi and not 3G in order to save data costs):

Free games which I downloaded for my 6-year old daughter include:
 My phone has almost all the functionality I expect a smartphone to provide. There are a few minor issues to sort out like applications which replace the rich functionality of NetQin’s Mobile Guard (such as a auto-start editor and a caller blacklist).

The Belle upgrade: Part 1 of 2

I knew the Belle upgrade would be an arduous task and decided I needed to complete the process over a weekend, so my phone would be ready for work on Monday morning. Since Belle is a complete OS upgrade and not just an update, I decided I would literally start from scratch. Here is a chronological, step-by-step guide on the procedure I followed:

Backup/cleanup process:
  • In Messaging, I deleted all sent SMS’s and all delivery reports (to simplify the backup process)
  • Backed up Contacts, Calendars, Notes, Messages and Bookmarks using Nokia PC Suite
  • Also backed up Contacts, Calendars, Notes, Messages and Bookmarks using Nokia Suite
  • Synced all photos and messages using Nokia Suite
  • Backed up all music using Nokia Music Player (I did not use Nokia Suite)
  • Moved all photos and videos from the phone’s mass memory and its memory card to PC
  • Moved all document (and PDF) files from mass memory and the memory card to PC
  • Exported my Best Jotter notes to a .CSV file and moved it to PC
  • Performed a hard reset using *#7370#. This restored my hacked N8 to its original factory default settings and cleared the mass memory
  • Using the File Manager, formatted the mass memory and memory card
  • Restored phone, calendar, notes and bookmarks using Nokia Suite (Nokia PC Suite also successfully restored).
Belle upgrade process:
  • Using Nokia Suite, started the Belle upgrade
  • The 289 Mb download took 9 minutes using a 6 Mbps ADSL connection
  • I forgot to backup my predictive text dictionary which was lost when I performed the hard reset (Nokia Suite backs up the dictionary for you)
  • During the firmware upgrade, I only entered in the PIN and ignored the request to set the language, date and time until the upgrade process was completed
  • The upgrade took 10 minutes which included 2 phone restarts
  • Using Nokia Suite, I installed the optional updates (AgendaServer, Search Widget and Social)
  • Since I hard reset my phone before the upgrade, I deleted the Nokia_Belle folder in mass memory because there was nothing of significance which Nokia Suite backed up during the upgrade
  • The entire Belle upgrade took approximately 30 minutes to complete.

Because I like to hack and mess around with my N8, I decided to used Nokia’s Configuration Tool to backup all settings. I also noted down all access point settings (i.e. WAP.Vlive, Vlive.Internet and Vodacom.Internet). Using the File Manager…Backup and Restore…I created a backup on the phone (see Memory card\Backup folder) of Contacts, Calendar, Messages etc. Next, I hacked the N8 to allow me to access all protected folders and install unsigned apps using the following procedure:

  • Downloaded  Norton, RomPatcher and X-Plore from here
  • Downloaded InstallServer RP+ v1.7 from here
  • Go to Settings…Installations….Installation settings and change Software installation to ALL
  • Installed NortonSymbianHackLDD.sis
  • Started the Norton app
  • Go to Options…Anti-Virus…Quarantine list
  • Go to Options…Restore and selected each file from the list and restored it individually
  • Exited the Norton application and deleted it using the App Manager
  • Deleted C:\shared folder (sometimes this folder doesn’t get created)
  • Installed RomPatcherPlus_3.1_LiteVersion.sisx in phone memory
  • Launched RomPatcher and applied the patch Open4all to gain full access to system folders
  • Using Install Server RP+ v1.7.zip, extracted Install Server RP+.rmp and copied the file to the phone
  • Used X-Plore to move Install Server RP+.rmp to C:\Patches
  • Started RomPatcher+ again and applied the patch Install ServerRP+. The Install Server patch removes only the signature checks and therefore all other checks are still kept as original.
  • Restarted the phone.
Next, I began the lengthy process to restore all music, photos, videos, wallpapers and maps as follows:
Wallpapers:
  • Copied my favourite 360 by 640 pixel wallpapers to Phone memory\data\prebuiltmedia\images\custom_backgrounds
  • Deleted Phone memory\data\prebuiltmedia\images\backgrounds
Music:
  • Transferred music files using Nokia Suite
  • Moved music files from mass memory to card memory in Mass Storage mode
  • Disconnected the USB cable, started Music Player and refreshed the library
Photos:
  • Changed camera settings to 9 MP, Capture tone off and E:\Mass memory
  • Copied all backed up images to Memory card\Images in Mass Storage mode
  • New photos stored in Mass memory\DCIM\100NOKIA
Videos:
  • Changed camera settings to High Definition, Video stabilisation on and E:\Mass memory
  • Copied all backed up videos to Memory card\Videos in Mass Storage mode
  • New videos stored in Mass memory\DCIM\100NOKIA
Nokia Maps:
  • Connected the phone to WiFi (caution using 3G to download maps, ~82 Mb)
  • Started the Nokia Maps app on the phone
  • Selected the option to use WiFi to download and install maps
  • Selected South Africa (82 Mb) and began the download (Map version 00.02.45.110, released on 13/02/2012)
  • Downloaded and installed the UK-Female voice for Driving
  • Selected the same voice for the Maps & Walk option
  • Then, synchronised Favourites stored at maps.nokia.com
  • Set the Home Location under settings
  • The maps and voice files are stored in Mass memory\cities
Garmin MobileXT app:
  • Placed phone in Mass Storage mode (Settings…Connectivity…USB…Select Mass Storage mode)
  • Copied all Garmin files to mass memory
  • Using the standard File Manager, browsed the mass memory and clicked on GarminMobileXT.sis in the root folder
  • Switched on Bluetooth (vertical swipe of any homescreen)
  • Paired the Garmin GPS 10x external GPS receiver using pair code 1234
  • Ran MobileXT and checked that both the internal and external GPSs worked
Other Bluetooth devices:
  • Paired my BH-108 bluetooth headset
  • Paired my BH-505 stereo bluetooth headset
Installation of favourite SPB applications:
  • SPB Time (very nice multiple alarm clocks)
  • SPB Wallet (Encrypts and stores sensitive information)
I did not install SPB Shell 3D as I noticed some annoying bugs when I used the user interface with Anna. The user interface would hang when running apps and games in landscape mode (e.g. Nokia Sleeping Screen, Swype, Fruit Ninja etc). Similarly, I did not install SPB Wireless Monitor as there are known issues with Belle (see the official Belle FAQ for more details).
At this stage of the Belle upgrade, I have a working phone that functions adequately as my Personal Information Manager (PIM). I am happy to confirm the Nokia PC Suite v7.1.40.1 is compatible with Nokia Belle and will successfully:
  • Backup and restore PIM information,
  • Edit phone contacts and make calendar entries,
  • Type SMS’s using the PC’s keyboard,
  • Install applications, and
  • Allow the PC to access the Internet.
With my photos, videos and music collections fully restored as well as my two main navigation applications functioning, I am happy with my Nokia N8 running Belle. I was uncertain whether Garmin MobileXT would run on Belle (I am pleased to report no problems so far, but will continue to test all functionality).

Part 2 of the upgrade involves installing all my favourite applications. This will prove more difficult as some applications are not fully compatible with Belle (e.g. JBak Taskman and NetQin’s Mobile Guard). The challenge will be to find similar applications that provide similar functionality.

Will Vodacom release Belle for the Nokia N8 (059D2N9) soon?

When I troll through the Nokia Support Discussion Forums (click here and here), I see how impatient smartphone owners get regarding the release of Belle for their phones.  I remind readers that it took Vodacom three weeks to approve the Anna update for release on the N8. Its been three weeks since Nokia began rolling out Belle. However, Belle is not an update, its a complete software upgrade (hence why your phone is wiped clean before Belle is installed). Service providers like Vodacom will want to fully test Belle on their network before they give Nokia approval to make the update available to customers. This make sense because Vodacom do not want their call centre to be inundated with frantic phone calls from customers experiencing a host of bugs related to the Belle upgrade. This could mean that it takes Vodacom longer than three weeks to approve Belle.

Lets hope that Vodacom do not reject the Belle upgrade for the 059D2N9 product code. I also hope that they haven’t gone back to Nokia for unnecessary minor tweeks to the Belle OS because Nokia may prioritise Vodacom’s relatively minor requests as low and shunt them down a long queue of bug fixes. What is interesting is that Belle is available for the N8 in most neighbouring counties like Zimbabwe, Namibia and Mozambique. If you still cannot wait for the upgrade, spare a thought for Australian (and Israel) smartphone owners since Belle is not yet even on the horizon. Also note that Nokia smartphone owners have been spoilt with updates. We updated PR1.0 to Pr1.2 on 18/04/2011, then to Anna  on 08/09/2011. Hence, the Anna update is only five months old. Apple release a major update about once a year and if you own an Android smartphone, you might not get any update/upgrade during your two year contract period. For example, some HTC Desire owners cannot update Android simply because their device has insufficient memory to install the newer OS versions. HTC had no option but to remove “some important functionality and experience” that the updated OS provided (click here for more inf0).

Some N8 owners find it most annoying that MTN typically approves updates quicker than Vodacom. However, if Vodacom take longer than MTN to approve updates because their in-house testing is more thorough, I’m quite happy to wait a little longer knowing that the final release may have less bugs. Nokia pulled the update for two product codes in India due to major installation problems (endless loop during backup process). Finally, you will notice that the official Belle FAQ grows in length almost daily. So, if you are happy with the Anna update, I caution you to do your homework before attempting the Belle upgrade. Read this forum article to see what can happen if the upgrade goes wrong.

Will my favourite apps run on Nokia Belle?

As I mentioned in my post on the pending release of Nokia Belle for N8 devices in South Africa, users must be aware that certain apps are not compatible with Belle and will therefore not work. Here is a list of my favourite apps and their Belle compatibility:

  • SPB Shell 3D: Compatible with Belle. View this link for confirmation.
  • SPB Wallet: SPB Support confirmed there are issues with Belle compatibility.
  • SPB Time: As for SPB Wallet.
  • NetQin Mobile Guard: According to this link, it does not work with Belle.
  • Shazam: Runs on Nokia Belle according to Nokia Store.
  • JBakTaskMan: Some features not working properly under Belle.
  • Nokia Big Screen:Version 1.2 now working on Nokia Belle.
  • Store QML Client: Version 3.22.053 compatible with Nokia Belle. However, update to version 3.22.054.
  • Opera Mini: Compatible with Nokia Belle from version 6.1 onwards.
  • LeControl: Version 1.11 compatible with Symbian Belle.

After installing Nokia Belle or the latest Store QML Client, I recommend installing QTInfo which displays runtime Qt (Quick) and system information. Use QTinfo to confirm your phone has the latest Qt (4.7.4) and Mobility (1.2.1) versions.

I mainly use Mobile Guard to quickly enable/disable apps that auto-start as well as to blacklist certain phone numbers. I am still searching for other apps which can provide this functionality with Nokia Belle. For a list of apps that are not compatible with Nokia Belle, click here. The following non-compatible apps I will miss until an update is hopefully available:

  • Adobe Reader LE 2.5,
  • Alt Reader Trial,
  • Fruit Ninja,
  • Fring,
  • SymDVR,
  • Talking Cat,
  • YouTube Downloader Pro, and
  • Youtube for Symbian^3.
