When people ask me about the Nokia N97, I tell them I love it! It meets my needs better than any other devices currently out there including other Nokia phones or competitors like the Apple iPhone. That said, nothing is perfect. Here’s a list of 10 things I think Nokia should address in the upcoming firmware reported to come on July 1st.
I woke up early Saturday to play basketball and saw one of my buddies set up a pocket HD camcorder to get some video from the games. This reminded me that I can take videos on the spot and share with my friends (almost) live from my Nokia phone with Qik.
Yesterday, I received a Facebook IM from Dayene asking me what I thought about the Nokia N97. Back and forth, we told each other the positives and negatives. In the middle of the conversation, she mentioned she was using Palringo on the Nokia N97 to chat with me. I was surprised because I don’t use IM on my phones. I quickly installed it on my Nokia N97 and was impressed.
One of my favorite things to do in Nokia devices is tweeting and sharing photos immediately from wherever I am. This is possible thanks to the “Share Online” app within the camera using a free service called Pixelpipe. I borrowed my wife’s new iPhone 3G S yesterday to see if I can do the same thing. My experience reminded me why I like my Nokia phones.
It’s been a week since I started playing with the Nokia N97 and now it’s time for my review of the hardware. I’ve been waiting for this phone for a while and I’m excited it’s finally here. I have reviewed a Nokia N97 prototype before, and the final retail version hardware isn’t that different. I’ll let you know what I think of the physical aspects and continue with my usual posts of usage experience and thoughts.
Watch out Twitpic! Flickr now allows its users to automatically send out a tweet whenever they upload photos through email. If you follow me on Twitter, then you probably notice I prefer to include photos with my tweets. I’ve been doing this with Twitpic on Nokia phones, but I no longer need it thanks to Flickr Twitter beta.
I opened up my Nokia BH-703 today and was instantly blown away with it. The sound quality is really top notch and the design is really elegant.
Starting June 20th 9PM CST, Nokia USA is lowering their prices for only 3 hours. Get 15% to 50% off select Nokia devices. We’ve got the full price list after the jump.
While there was no Nokia E72 in sight at the Eseries Social Media meetup, a white Nokia E75 made an appearance. It was carried by the Director of Eseries Marketing in Americas, Hugo Hernandez. When asked about its release date, he was vague by simply saying, “It’s coming.” Pic after the jump.
