I received a final production of the Nokia N81 8GB today for testing. I made a video of the unboxing as well as a few minutes of initial usage with it. Right off the bat, I wanted to see the Navi wheel, new multimedia menu, and the N-gage games. I’ll leave my initial thoughts and review for a later post. Check out the video!
I used my Apple Macbook Pro to update the Nokia N93i to the latest firmware as of writing this entry, version 30.0.013, using VMware Fusion without any problems. As you may know, Nokia Software Update only works on Windows. If you are a Mac user, you get the benefits of both worlds by being able to run Windows on a Mac.
I’ll review the newly released Nokia N95-3 that works with the US AT&T 3G. In summary, it is the Nokia N95 that should have been released in the first place because of the better build quality and better performance. What do I think? The new Nokia N95-3 brings attention to the flaws of the older version, but I think it is currently the best phone/device out there.
The Nokia Los Angeles Mansion Party will be unforgettable for me. First of all, Nokia flew me from New York to join them in Los Angeles. Then I get the opportunity to meet many of the Nokia blogging/forums community in person in one place. To top it all, I talked one-on-one with the product managers responsible for the phones and devices I love. Reviews, videos, and interviews will be posted later in separate posts.
I’m happy to announce that The Nokia Blog reached its 1 millionth pageview. When I first started in October 2006, I was really excited receiving 20,000 views in a month, but now the blog has been getting well over 100,000+ per month. Unbelievable! I’m going to take this opportunity to ask the lurkers to say hi and introduce yourself.
I used my Nokia N95′s’ eBook reader, MobiReader, instead of carrying a heavy and thick Drug Reference guide in the hospital which was required for my clinicals. I saved some pocket space by having one less thing to carry around. My partner, on the other hand, carried the real book. What did I notice? The Nokia N95′s eBook reader is faster and more convenient.
