Nokia diving into Touchscreen market ?


I was surfing through different blogs early morning and saw this news that Nokia has finally taken a hint from the market; touchscreens are good. It has been stated that that Nokia is prepping to launch 3 touchscreens enabled devices at some point this year to join the likes of their N97 coming this summer. One of these rumored phones is said to have the codename ‘Nautilus‘ which features both a touchscreen and full QWERTY keyboard.

Rumor has it these new touch screen devices will utilize haptic feedback technology licensed from Immersion in an attempt to make typing on the phones less of a chore.

Well lets wait and watch whats new is coming in market. Nokia is still far ahead in innovation race and bring competition in the market. Will others would be able to beat it?


Nokia 6210 released in Asia

Nokia 6210 reached Asian market too late. This phone was initially released in Europe in Summer 2008. Nokia’s plans to re-enter the South Korean market have been confirmed today, as the Finnish company officially announced this phone release in Asian Market.


The phone currently does not supports navigation capabilities because of country regulations that ask GPS-capable handsets to use locally-based map servers.   

Without its navigation capabilities, 6210s is presented only as Nokia’s first 3G handset to be sold in South Korea.

Manufactured at the Korean Masan facility, Nokia 6210s should be available as of today, via KTF, for 396,000 KRW (about $300).

Thursday thrill – Nokia Scavenger Hunt at Web 2.0 Expo

Nokia has been having a good time at the Web 2.0 Expo. The booth has been busy with folks asking questions about the Ovi Store, Ovi Maps, and Point and Find. We’ve been busy on stage, as well: Tero Ojanperä gave a talk on Wednesday and Anssi Vanjoki gave a keynote on Thursday.

Not to be lulled by the usual Expo action, Nokia decided to organize a scavenger hunt for the journalists and bloggers we know who are at the show. Orchestrating this madness is none other than Molly Schonthal, from the same communications team as the Nokia Conversations team.

We have more about the hunt and some pictures after the jump.

Nokia 3120 Classic with more Fun and Style

I already recommended this phone  as a perfect gift to present someone whom you really care and love a lot. To be very honest, this phone is a good combination of Nokia 6233 and Nokia 6300 . Price of both these handsetsis almost the same. Nokia 3120 classic basically has all th emissing featuires of both these phones individually and collectively, with improved battery, camera and flash. Thanks to Nokia for another great product.


The most Stylish phone:Nokia 6600 slide

nokia-6600-slide-photo6Now seriously, i found Nokia 6600 slide the most stylish of all the phones i have ever seen. A sophisticated slider phone, which is available in only Black skin color. On the front there is a wide 240 x 320 pixels, 2.2 inches TFT, 16M colors display and just under that there is a D-pad and four buttons, and when slider is opened there is a nice set of keypad, which will surely be helpful while messaging. On the top front there is a ear piece and a video call camera. On the back 6600 slide is equipped with 3.15 mega pixel camera with auto focus and LED flash. Nokia 6600 Slide’s measurements are 90 x 45 x 14 mm, 52 cc and weights around 110 g, which means it can easily fit in your jeans pocket. For further specifications and details, visit GSM Arena. Abbu has recently bought it in Rs 22,200 from a local market. I think it is not much expensive as compared to other Sony Ericsson and LG phones. Buy it and explore it – and have fun 🙂

Nokia E71 – Ultimate Business Device

Another QWERTY based smartphone by Nokia that is much responsive and quick – and becoming more popular and feasible because of its compatible size – As compared to E61, it is much more convenient. The E51 is a great entry level enterprise device, but lacks the power that a full size keyboard provides. The completed portfolio of 2nd generation Eseries devices (E51, E66, E71, E90) has a real sense of maturity about it. This comes from the hardware (variety across the range, build quality and feature set), but also the software – the enterprise applications, and crucially, the enterprise device management options have been significantly improved. The Nokia E71 and its sisters look set to give Nokia’s Enterprise rivals (Blackberry and Windows Mobile – and, yes, in time the iPhone) some sleepless nights.

10The key features include Quad-band GSM support, Landscape 2.36″ 16M color display of QVGA resolution, 3G with HSDPA 3.6Mbps support, Comfortable full QWERTY keypad, Convenient business-minded shortcut keys , Symbian 9.2 OS, S60 UI with FP1 (topped with some FP2 goodies) , 369 MHz ARM 11 CPU and 128 MB of SDRAM , Wi-Fi, Built-in GPS receiver, A-GPS, 3.15 megapixel auto focus camera with LED flash, 110 MB of internal memory, microSD expansion, ships with a 2GB card, Slimmest smartphone to-date, slimmest Wi-Fi and/or GPS handset to-date, Stainless steel casing, Standard 2.5mm audio jack, Bluetooth v2.0 with A2DP support, microUSB v2.0, FM radio, Remote Wipe , Provider-independent VoIP support, Infrared port , Great battery life , Office document editor , User-friendly Mode Switch for swapping two homescreen setups, Rich retail package and many more –

Besides many advantages, the few drawbacks this phone holds are: Below average camera performance, Video recording maxes out at QVGA@15fps, No dedicated camera key, Smaller display than its predecessor, Cheap-looking power key, No RDS for the FM radio – But overall Nokia E71 is considered as an ultimate business cellphone. There is no BlackBerry and Exchange client support in the phone,  which otherwise handles push email, contacts, appointments, and tasks flawlessly, doesn’t support email folders. That’s going to be a deal breaker for some, to be sure. But for casual business users , Nokia E71 is the best among all Nokia smartphones –

Ali, Senior Software Engineer at Mondo Pakistan, and friend of mine is planning to buy one soon – the phone is available in the locat market with price range Rs 34,000 – Rs 37,000 – I am sure he will get one soon – 🙂 InshaAllah –
