I received a Nokia E51, an iPod Touch 16GB, and the shotgun mic for my HV20 today. Still waiting for the ZR800 though. Hopefully it will arrive tomorrow.

I like the E51. Really nice phone. Only real problem it’s got is its pathetic video recording performance (9 fps, what the hell?).

The iPod Touch is soooo thin… Interchanging between the iPhone and the iPod Touch in your hand, the difference in thickness brings a weird feeling. Thank God you can manually sync with the iPod Touch btw.

Haven’t tested the DM-50 mic yet. I need to finish up my Adobe Photoshop+Premiere Elements review first. Adobe sent me a review package last week.

Update: Stupid Apple. They have no special keyword to recognize the user agent of the iPod web browser. The word “iPhone” is unique enough so it can be used relatively safely as a keyword matcher, but the iPod Touch just has words like “AppleWebKit”. “Mobile” and “iPod” (not close to each other), which I am sorry to say they are not that unique so it’s difficult to decide if it’s a genuine iPod or not. Anyways, I just added special support for it on OSNews and Gnomefiles, but most other sites don’t support it (e.g. does not let me use the actual mobile site while it does let me do so when using the iPhone).

Hi Eugenia, looking forward to your Elements review. I’m wondering if you think Premiere Elements is finally at par with VMS. I’ve only heard no AVCHD support and no FHD rendering. True or myth? Post your review when its ready. Thanks!

I only have 1 AVCHD sample file to test with, so testing can’t be that extensive.

What other iPod than the iPod touch can visit your website??

The word “ipod” can be inside other words that match. It’s a too common series of characters. Many spider apps use common words and these sometimes end up using the mobile version because their weird user agents match. Now, if it was called “iPod Touch”, that would be a better deal.
