I was roaming the shops during lunch break the other day and thought I’d do a size comparison of the Nokia N8 with some of the current handsets available in the UK.

I was so shocked to see the N900 still on sale that I didn’t get a comparison photo.

Bell: Face time with your Nokia C6 -_-

October 23, 2010 6 comments

It’s a sad day when features we’ve come to take for granted are renamed by Jobsian vocabulary. High Res screens replaced with Retina Display…video calling with Face Time. Bell – Canadian Mobile Network – has taken advantage of this and is advertising the Nokia C6 with face time – video calling from anywhere in the world. We’ve been doing video calling since what, 2006? Admittedly the interface hasn’t vastly improved due to the limitations of 3G.

Thanks to Keith for the heads up.

BTW, Nice page organization over at the Bell Page – really sells the C6 well. Other online retailers should take note. Though they might have to pull the whole face time bit if that’s Apple owned branding.
