Nokia E72 Review: Quirky QWERTY Smartphone

I picked up a Nokia E72 for an upcoming trip to Japan. Here are my thoughts on this Blackberry-ish smartphone.


The Nokia E75 Mini-Review

Nokia’s E75 combines an excellent (albeit slightly unorthodox) slide-out keyboard with the work and play flexibility of the Eseries line of phones. Just don’t expect any N97-like styling.

Better Late Than Never: Nokia 5800 XpressMusic Phone Review

The 5800 XpressMusic is Nokia’s first real touch-screen handset. You know it as one of the cheapest touch smartphones around. But how does it fare in real-world use? And is it worth the low price, or should you hold out for something better? Get down and dirty with the Nokia 5800XM inside.


The N97 + 5800XM + E75 Keyboard Shootout

The Nokia N97. The 5800 XpressMusic. The E75. Three phones, three distinct little keyboards. Does the N97 deserve the flak it’s taken for the mushy QWERTY? The 5800XM on-screen keyboard sucks, right? And how does the E75 stack up in all of this? To find out, I conducted a little “keyboard shootout” experiment, pitting me, [...]


The Definitive Nokia N97 Bug List

Update: Nokia N97 v20 firmware was released on October 27, 2009. It’s been a week since the N97 arrived at my door, and yet during that time I’ve seen some strange things. And not strange in a good way either. So I’m making my official Nokia N97 bug post here and updating it as I [...]


Nokia N97: First Impressions

I’ve spent a grand total of three hours with Nokia’s N97 “flagship” smartphone, and I have to say – it’s looking to be a mighty impressive device, and a worthy upgrade to the 5800 XpressMusic. But it definitely ain’t without its flaws.

First Impressions: Nokia 6650 Phone (Sleeper Hit?)

I recently received a Nokia 6650 as part of Nokia 6650 Chronicles, a cool little project documenting the daily lives of twenty bloggers, yours truly included. The 6650 is what I’d call an enigma. It looks like your typical S40 AT&T budget phone, but in reality it’s a Symbian OS-powered, quad-band/3G connected smartphone with an [...]

The N96 Gets Reviewed

A user over at All About Symbian posted the first unofficial review of the Nokia N96 MonsterPhone, and it’s looking pretty good: other than a stiff camera shutter key and a couple of minor S60 app glitches, there’s a lot to like. Of interest might be the better-than-expected battery life (“the N96 lasted a full [...]
