It’s not a netbook, according to Nokia. It’s a mini-laptop! These packaging photos give you a preview of unboxing your own if you decide to spend the 575 Euro suggested price. It’s not exactly an unboxing because the accessories and manual weren’t in the box when I took the photos.
The Nokia E72 isn’t out yet, but I’ve got to play with a pre-production model during the Mobile Geeks of NY meetup. It is the update to the E71, whose camera I absolutely hate. The camera app was the first thing I checked on the E72 and I was surprised to see a new autofocus system. Check out the video.
The Nokia Blog is turning 3 on September 30th and I’ll be giving away a brand new Nokia N97 that day. Tell me what mobile computing means to you and I’ll pick my favorite response. You have until September 29th 11:59 PM Eastern time to submit it. I will accept tweets, comments, blog posts, and preferably videos. Just make sure I can find it!
You’ve seen the Nokia 5530 hands-on photos. Now it’s time for the video! I had a couple of days with it, so I have initial impressions to share. I was surprised that navigating through the menus feel better on the 5530 versus the Nokia N97. Nokia uses kinetic scrolling on the 5530 already while N97 users currently have to wait for the update. Check it out.
One of the things shown off at Nokia World was the Booklet 3G, a Windows-based mini laptop with up to 12 hours of battery, 10.1in display, built-in SIM slot, A-GPS, front-facing camera, and more. I’ve asked a Nokia spokesperson at the event to give me an overview of the device in front of camera. Take a look.
I bumped into Brett Butterfield, CEO and founder of Pixelpipe during the first day of Nokia World. I told him I love the service and have been using it frequently with my Nokia phones. I also told him that I had my hands on the Nokia N900 and hope that Pixelpipe works on it. I was in luck. He asked permission from Nokia then got the green light to demo it for The Nokia Blog!
