N-85 TV

Just been testing the video – by watching a BBC trailer. Very impressed! Now wondering how I find iPlayer. I’d been wondering how I selected whether I was using my SIM card to connect to 3G, or the wifi connection when going online. I’ve now realised that when I go straight to the Internet, it…
