I had the Nokia N95 8GB and the Nokia N82 when I was driving by Brooklyn and saw a nice view of lower Manhattan. I knew I had to stop and take pictures. During the daytime, I could not really see major differences between the two 5 megapixel cameras. I gave my sister the N82 while I used the Nokia N95 8GB. Take a look at the pics and tell me if you see any difference.
I’m excited to announce opening of the Nokia blog store. I’ll be starting with small inventory to test how it goes. My first items are the the Nokia N95-3. I believe it is currently the lowest price on the web… $555 but I only have a limited supply. First shipment is 10 pieces to be exact. I’ll keep reordering if demand keeps up. My readers have been trusting me with Nokia news, guides, and reviews, so I’m asking to trust me as a retailer. Buy the Nokia N95-3.
The Nokia N81 is spotted in Alicia Key‘s music video of Like You’ll Never See Me Again. It’s in there for a pretty good amount of time… 22 seconds to be exact. I’ve seen several product placements before from Nokia, but I’m surprised at the length of the continuous footage. However, I disagree how the Nokia N81 was marketed in this video.
For another video quality sample of the Nokia N82, I created a short clip of our pomeranian puppy getting a bath. No fancy editing was done to the video nor the audio other than cuts and the titles added from iMovie. I also created different versions so you can watch on various screens.
After 2 weeks of using the Nokia N82, I’m reviewing about its flagship feature: the camera. You can also read the first part reviewing the Nokia N82′s general physical/hardware before continuing. In the end, I think the camera itself should make this Nseries phone worth buying.
Time for some reader discussion! On my next phone, I want at least 3.5 inch touchscreen display with 5 megapixel camera, video-recording at least 640×480 at 30 FPS, xenon flash, GPS, native flash support so that the real Youtube.com videos actually work, at least 128mb RAM, microSDHC storage, battery life that lasts longer than a day, and thin enough to still fit in my jeans. I almost forgot to mention that I should still be able to make calls. It sure doesn’t sound like I’m describing a phone. Let me know what you want on your next phone.
I received a surprising accessory today in the mail for review: the Mobile Video Hat. I’ve seen it before at the Nseries sponsored Crown Point Festival here in New York City and was really curious about it. I thought this was a real product for viewing videos totally hands-free but I think it is a viral marketing the Nokia Nseries for watching videos. Nokia might think it’s a joke, but it could actually be useful in creating cool videos. I made a video of how it can be used!
After a week with the Nokia N82, I have prepared the first part of the review for this phone. I will talk about the physical aspects of the Nokia N82 and give a separate review of its features in an upcoming post. Many people consider the N82 simply as a Nokia N95 in a candybar form. While they both share similar features, the Nokia N82 stands out as the winner in the imaging category. In the end, I think that the Nokia N82 won’t win any awards for its appearance, but its features make up for it.
Ryan Paul from Ars Technica unboxes and gives his first impressions of the Nokia N810. He is impressed overall, but do not like the built-in keyboard and the limited free GPS software. He also includes plenty of pictures of the unboxing and even compared its size to the Nokia N800.
