Last Friday during the New York Nokia Users Meetup, I played with a Nokia N97 prototype. I’m now giving you my initial thoughts about the device. It’s nowhere near production because it kept crashing. Since the hardware is pretty much what we’ll see when it comes out, this preview will be based on that.
We’re not expecting the Nokia N97 until May, but Eldar from Mobile Review already comes out with the Nokia N97 review! It should be called a preview since the device is an early prototype, but who cares? I know I’m not the only one excited about this Qwerty-toting touch device from Nokia.
I’ve been using the Nokia N85 for 3 weeks now and let me tell you that this is the best phone to have right now. It has become my replacement for my previous favorite, the Nokia N95 8GB. The Nokia N96 was supposed to take this title, but that phone has been collecting dust on my desk because of the N85. In this first part of the review, I’ll cover the physical aspects.
One of the first owners of the Nokia N96 posted a review on All About Symbian today. Read their first impressions and thoughts on this new multimedia device. For more discussion on the Nokia N96 from other early owners, you can also read the comments on our post, Nokia N96 Starts Shipping.
Eldar from Mobile Review wrote a review of the Nokia N85 (translated) already and I am determined to make this my next Nokia phone. He explained that the N85 is not copy of the Nokia N95 with just a few changes. Instead, the Nokia N85 is one of the first devices built on different, newer chipsets.
After two weeks with the Nokia E71, I have prepared the first part of the review for this phone. I’ll talk about the physical aspects of the Nokia E71. A lot of people will be considering this phone because of the QWERTY keypad, slick shape and 3G compatibility in North America, but interested buyers need to consider if they can do with the multimedia features not up to par with Nseries phones.
