Remember those HX Mods that were enabling you to get the raw images mode from already almighty Nokia N8 camera? He was also talking about the continuous auto focus mode, which he didn’t released for public later on due to some bugs in it.

Faenil also mentions that he is coding a software to let you edit lots of settings it will take 1-2months, so wait for a lot more if next firmware update doesn’t bring all the goodies that Nokia N8 is really capable of.

[tweetmeme source=”nkumar_” only_single=”false”]

Finally the looong wait ended, when tonight @janole uploaded the alpha build of gravity with polished portrait qwerty, all new facebook section, conversation style DMs and more.

If you are not aware what gravity is (which is almost impossible for a Symbian user), then you must check my big review about Gravity. Being a fan of Gravity and @janole for sure, I was also following the development around the split screen and transparent touch keypad inside gravity, which also brings the portrait qwerty over Symbian^3.

The complete change log will come from the developer itself by tomorrow, but I am showing you what I find different in my first few mins experiences with new Gravity.
