Nokia C7: A Revolutionary, Uncelebrated Handset

Sep 26, 2010

With all the talking about the Nokia E7 and N8, the C7 hasn’t had an opportunity to shine. And with a valid reason, these handsets and their amazing specs can easily get all the attention, leaving the C7 looking as just “another” Symbian^3 smartphone. It wasn’t until a meeting with C7 product manager that the C7 seemed like a brilliant...

Nokia World was the opportunity for Nokia to make a positive change. And they did. Lets start with Nokia’s leadership. CEO Olli-Pekka is out, Stephen Elop is in. This change is a very significant one because Elop is a totally unexpected person to come in and take the leadership at Nokia. The fact that he is the first non-Finnish person to direct the...

C3 Touch and Type Demo at Nokia World

The second day after revealing all the devices at Nokia World, Nokia unexpectedly introduced the Nokia C3 Touch and Type. Wait, C3? Yeah, this phone has the same name than the other C3, the one with a full QWERTY keyboard. This is very confusing, adding the suffix “Touch and Type” doesn’t do it. The Nokia C3 Touch and Type is the second Touch...

X3 Touch: Hands On With The Nokia X3 Touch and Type

Sep 17, 2010

Since the day Nokia announced the X3 Touch and Type I have been looking forward to get my hands on it. The concept of what Nokia calls a “Touch and Type” device is brilliant in theory, but practice is often different. The small screen of the X3 is what worried me the most; the UI was my second concern. The first time I held the X3 Touch and Type I...

Nokia E7 and C7: The Torch Feature Is Back!

Sep 15, 2010

Remember the Nokia N93? It was a pretty advanced phone in its era, but, I specially remember it because of the awesome flashlight feature. You just pressed a button and the LED Flash lighted your way, showed you your lost keys, and let you bug your friends by pointing the flash to their faces. This awesome feature is back! And it is better integrated this time...

I always believed that the screen is the most important feature of a decent smartphone, and that is why I really like to use large displays with at least 3.7″. The only Nokia to offer that so far is the Nokia E7 which has the magical 4″ (since 4.3″ is way too much). Nokia, however,  did not only make it an AMOLED screen, but a CBD AMOLED...
