Nokia E7 – Wasted Efforts

  • by

The Nokia E7, at the very least it’s a confusing piece of hardware and pretty much sums up how Nokia as a company has been running for the last 2/3 years. It doesn’t really know what it wants to be, nor do the people behind it.

Nokia E7

Hardware
The E7 is actually a very well built device, but don’t get build quality confused with good design. I still stand by my opinion of the retro 70s look, it looks nice. These are the things that annoy me about this device from a design point of view and something Nokia keeps doing with different handsets. Stop. Moving. Things. Around.

Sliders
They really should take a note from the “if it’s not broken, don’t fix it” book – yes I am talking about the lock slider and the slider volume. Why and why did those things get changed? Is this device designed for left handers in particular? Are they trying to capture an untapped market somewhere? From my experience with the X6 and 5800XM the slider has always been on the right side of the handsets, easily able to lock and unlock. Simple, works. Perfect. Why have the volume buttons turned into an uncomfortable slider, and the lock slider moved to the other side? Anyone care to explain what was wrong with how they were?

Nokia And Microsoft Get Into Bed Officially

  • by

The rumors were flying around the whole internet about Nokia moving to Windows Phone 7, haters, lovers, fanboys, fangirls, employees, everyone has been pretty much going on about this for a few days now, and to be honest I was kind of sick about it all. So much, that I basically ignored everything.

Nokia

But now it’s Official I’m starting to wonder about a few things;

How will this effect both companies and more importantly; Me. Yes that’s the big question here. I’ve personally long moved over to Android as my choice of mobile platform. Whilst on the whole I am satisfied with the whole OS, the choice of hardware is frankly not up there with the likes of Nokia and Sony Ericsson, in particular the camera. This is one major flaw in every Android handset, the camera quality on every device out there in the market is absolute crap. This leads me to start dreaming; a Nokia N8 running on Windows Phone 7. Surely not, well, 6 months ago perhaps, but in 6 months time; why the heck not? Imagine the possibilities.Read More »Nokia And Microsoft Get Into Bed Officially

Nokia N8 Light Impressions

Nokia N8 – Light Impressions

  • by

I’ve now had quite sometime playing around with the Nokia N8, enough time in my opinion to put out a post on how I think the handset will rank up to today’s expectations. Obviously the 12 Megapixel camera is going to the focus point of it, what else is there really that stands out other than that? Well design perhaps, it’s a bit like Marmite I guess, but not as severe as the “love it or hate it” scenario with Marmite.

Nokia N8 Light Impressions

Physical Design
My initial impressions when I saw the press pics and leaked ones too, was it looked very rugged and industrialized, which I guess it is. The bare screws adding to that look on the casing. The color choices are good I guess, my personal preference would say go for the black, and having handled one myself I can say it looks and feels good. The Orange one seems to be doing the rounds with developers – allegedly it’s a limited edition color. Colors and preferences aside, what I noticed most was the size of the N8 itself. The pictures didn’t do it justice, it is a lot smaller than it looks in the pictures. A lot more comfortable to hold it in comparison to my HTC Desire. But there are some design flaws.Read More »Nokia N8 – Light Impressions

Nokia Announces N8 – First Symbian 3 Handset

  • by

Nokia has now officially announced the Nokia N8. Nokia has done the quick and sensible thing and announced the N8 officially – midst a lot of negative reactions from the mobile community.

Nokia N8

What we have here is a very high end spec handset with many of the great sought after features today, something which Nokia previously used to do. The N8 is the first mobile capable of doing all 5 bands of 3G; 850/900/1700/1900/2100 – which essentially means it should work anywhere in the world. This is definitely a better solution than having to produce different models for the North American Market and Europe / Asia. One would hope updates and upgrades will be universal with this move.

It also does Bluetooth 3.0, WiFi 802.11n, 720p Video capture, 12 Megapixel camera with Xenon flash – the latter something the Nokia community has been asking Nokia to give back since the N82. Most importantly the N8 runs on Nokia’s latest upgrade to Symbian – Symbian ^3 which alleges to fix many irks the previous OS has had for ages and hopefully make it a more modern experience.Read More »Nokia Announces N8 – First Symbian 3 Handset

Nokia N95 sw update

Nokia N95 V35 Firmware Update

  • by

In what looks like an Xmas present to owners of Nokia’s older N-Series devices; the N82 and the N95. The Finnish giant has released V35 firmware updates across the board. Not only does the N95-1 and the N95 8GB get the firmware updates but also it’s cousin’s and variants in the US.

Nokia N95 sw update

The question has to be asked, why are we seeing a sudden release of new Firmware updates? What do they bring to the table? Well for the latter, as usual we have no changelog, not unexpected – hence I won’t be updating I find something significant enough to make it worthwhile. But going back to the first question, is Nokia putting these devices up to spec in anticipation of releasing something across the board and making them compatible? Perhaps the release of the OVI store (v2)?Read More »Nokia N95 V35 Firmware Update
