In the fashion world, style is essential. Your mobile phone is a part of your ensemble. It needs to be chic elegant, smart and beautiful
There’s beautiful and then there’s smart; the Nokia C7 smartphone is both of these. In an age where every walk of life is using technology to help keep them connected to their friends & family, the Nokia C7 allows the style conscious user an accessory to match their social life and fashion sense.
In the following video Sally Glover (PA to Gresham Blake – a Savile Row trained tailor based in Brighton, UK) uses the latest mobile phone made by Nokia to enhance and support her fast paced lifestyle.
If anything is to be unboxed, you can rely on unboxings.com to do it. And here they are – well it’s neither Tracy or Matt, it’s James – unboxing the Nokia C7.
So this is more of a “mainstream” unboxing, by mainstream I mean non-Nokia specific.
As you can read from the comments, it’s gloom and doom for you according to those highly acclaimed mobile analysts lurking the YouTube comments. But the video may be a large part to play in it.
Although it’s interesting to have a newbie playing about with a phone you’re demoing, when they get lost it makes it a million times worse (as opposed to someone who’s familiar teaching you how to work it).
e.g. Taking a Macro Photo with EDoF camera = FAIL. Trying to “TOUCH FOCUS” when there’s a shutter button and a shutter touch button = FAIL. It makes it look unresponsive and poorer in performance when you’re testing for features it does not have. e.g. I’d like to do some low light LED flash tests on the iPhone 3GS.
- Push and unlock on screen (like X3-02. No slider switch it appears)
- Demo goes through several aspects of the phone:
- Kinetic scrolling
- Music Player
- Facebook app
- Old style keyboards
- Web Browser
- Ovi Maps
Not bad. Like a slimmer, updated 5800. If you can spend more, there’s the option of a Symbian^3 CBD AMOLED C6-01.
Due to popular (kind of) demand, I’ve conducted a short yet conclusive test on the 8 Mpix camera capabilities of the Nokia C7-00. Similar fixed-focus or EDoF (Extended Depth of Field ) camera modules are also used in a pair of other Symbian^3 based Nokia smartphones like the C6-01 and the upcoming E7, so I think it’s safe to draw some parallels out of the results of this test.
To see how it goes, I’ve pitted the C7-00 against a seemingly run of the mill, average performing by today’s standards, 5 Mpix auto-focus camera in the Nokia N900. I like having my camera tests as varied with different phone models as possible, so in some shots I’ve also allowed HTC Desire to bring an outlandish flavor into the test. So let’s get going!
Below are a couple of official Nokia ads for the Nokia X2-01 (budget QWERTY) and the Nokia C2-01 (most inexpensive new 3G from Nokia) sporting a very classic Nokia candy bar style. And according to Nokia Conversations, BOTH have launched today with the X2-01 expected around 80 EUR and C2-01 around 70 EUR but prices will vary depending on local taxes and operator subsidies. X2-01 is available this quarter and C2-01 is expected around Q1 2011.
Videos, specs and galleries after the jump 🙂
Here’s an unboxing and hands on video with the CBD Nokia C6-01. All the usual stuff with the box contents. Ear phones are just that – the standard Nokia ones (not the slightly nicer in-ear ones – though that’s a personal preference).
Seems that despite those remarkably long nails the C6 is still quite easy to use.
The cheaper cousin (very reasonably priced) of the Nokia N8 and C7, the rightful 5800 successor that is the C6-01 gets a software hands on demo from GSM Arena.
This shouldn’t come as anything new as what you see in the N8 you’ll see also with the C7 and similarly with the C6-01.
Pretty much same experience over different price points. No HDMI, smaller 3.2″ screen (though CBD!), and none of that glorious N8 camera capabilities. But other than that, everything inside is the same (CPU/GPU/RAM apparently – so no software issues from N8/C7/E7/C6-01). You also get (like the C7) Call and End buttons.

I’m off to bed, so I’ll read this some time tomorrow 😀
