Smartphone Hacks

Michael Juntao Yuan, Nokia Smartphone Hacks, O'Reilly

This stuff is fun. Take your Symbian Series 60 phone (and there are quite a few bits that refer to the less-smart Series 40s) and make it do interesting things that you hadn't thought about or had time to think about.

Things like using it as remote control for your Mac or PC, playing with the GUI and ringtones, reading blogs, playing DVD movies and music, and lots more. It even tells you how to set up a mobile phone friendly web portal.

The book starts out with phone choices and then gets into data plans before exploring the phone itself and then having a look at the various aspects you can play with. More to the point, it might give you ideas to do things that haven't been done yet.
