Automatically grab avatars from social services for Contacts app

The maemo 5 contact manager allows you to add a lot of details to a contact.

But it is very annoying to add images and personal informations if your contact list grows big.

Call recording

Posted on 2009-10-23 21:27 UTC by John Veness. Status: Implemented, Categories: Utilities.

The N900 does not have a feature to record calls. This could be useful to users. For example: Your wife called you to buy the groceries. With this recording function you can simply click on the record button to record the conversation then play back the conversation to listen to the item needed by your wife.

Maemo contains a nice instant messaging client based on Telepathy. Maemo devices also usually are paired with a mobile phone.

Now this pairing is mostly used for internet connection, but it could also be used for allowing SMS become "just another conversation" in the IM client.
