The N95’s Legacy and how it impacts Nokia today……….

N95All you gadget fans out there and even the normobs must be familiar with the legendary handset that came out from Nokia’s stables around 30 months ago, it was christened the N95 by them. Its was a legend then, and even is now but a lot of devices match it or better it these days.

Back in May 2007 when i became a proud owner of the Nokia N95 it was the best mobile phone that the market had. It beat it rivals by miles and no other phone could come near it in term of features. It had all what one could imagine. It had the following list of features that were till then unseen in any mobile device:

  • The first mobile phone that had a 5 Megapixel Camera that was a very  good performer
  • The first mobile phone that had 3.5G to be commercially launched, means it could do 3.5Mbps even in 2007, Wi-Fi, UPnP Read more…

Nokia Slips in E52: The Marathon talk time Slim phone

11Nokia silently slipped the E52 into the webspace through their conversations.nokia.com blog.  The E52 is the reincarnation of the E55 sans the half QWERTY keypad as it sports the more conventional T9. The handset looks sleek and seems nice and shall appeal to more people than the E55 as its more conventional and thus easy to use. Calling it a successor to the E51 will not be a mistake. Like all the recent E series candybar phones this too has it design roots from the super sexy E71 which means that it shall be a slim smartphone. But even being slim the phone packs quite a punch as its battery has enough juice to make it last eight hours of calling on GSM(six hours on WCDMA) and 23 hours standby. The Conversations site call it having super talk time, which as per the given specs seems apt. Read more…

A Nokia Fan Boy’s Dream

This post had been in my drafts from the last two weeks, to be precise from the 18th of February, but when i came across a beautifully worded article from Dotsisx of The Symbian Guru and decided to publish it

Seeing what Nokia had to offer in terms of new handsets at the MWC i might say that i have to say i am a bit disaapointed.

Its really sad for a Nokia fan like me to see Samsung and Sony Ericsson leading the race from Nokia in terms of Hardware and Technology.

It seems long ago that Nokia had a market leader phone that was by far the most advanced phone in the market, read the N95 in its good old days.

Today in terms of whats announced and whats available in the market Nokia is no more a leader on the cutting edge technology front.

  • The first 8 Megapixel phone was from Samsung and that to Symbian.
  • The first HD Video recording phone has been announced Samsung the Omnia HD and that to Symbian S60 V5 OS.
  • The recently announced 12.1 Megapixel Concept Idou from Sony Ericsson will also run Symbian OS.

Yes Nokia has announced the N86 with a 8 Megapixel Camera with the best camera optics till date(if you somehow can ignore the absence of optical zoom) but it seems a bit late.

C’mmon Nokia rise up and make a Smart Phone that shall be a Market Leader in Technology like the N95. Read more…
