Video: Nokia C6-01 Unboxing and Hands on

November 20, 2010 6 comments

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.


Video: Sexy Nokia C7 Hands On

November 2, 2010 7 comments

Here’s a video hands on of the very sleek looking Nokia C7 by mobilearsenaldotcom. There’s no speaking of any language during the video but you do get some funky jazzy soundtrack.

It’s all pretty much the usual Symbian^3 stuff as seen in the N8. PhoneArena notes that it’s pretty much just hardware/appearance changes with N8 in their video. (Note, all S^3 phones right now have same GPU/CPU/RAM and hence should perform as equally well as each other – if they were all on similar/same firmware. How is that going to go about anyway…one firmware update for all S^3 or like S60 5th with many different firmwares)

mobilearsenaldotcom not sure what the main site is as I get linked over to something else.

Video: MeeGo WeTab Startup time (and 5 minute hands on – live multitasker)

September 7, 2010 2 comments

Just a quick 30 second vid showing the startup time of one of the upcoming MeeGo powered tablets, the WeTab. It’s a pretty decent start up speed, no?


This is followed by a 5 minute hands on. You’ll notice the live windowed multitasker, slim, svelte design and pretty fluid interface.

Video: Nokia N8 hands-on

Here’s a short video showing how fast the Nokia N8 scrolls and go through menus.

It looks pretty smooth to me, but it’s still a prototype so maybe the retail version will be faster.

Video: New N8 hands-on

July 14, 2010 30 comments

Here’s another Nokia N8 hands-on video. This time the N8 appeared in Switzerland.

The N8 looks fluid. It looks like this one has plenty of music albums and still no lag. The photos took a bit longer to load (two to three seconds). Once it loaded, going into folders was fine and took a second to load all the pictures. The pinch to zoom works fine. A few seconds later the video folder appeared randomly which I suppose wasn’t expected.

But anyways this is only a prototype, there are still weeks until final (retail) product.

Update: Translated by skills : ”We listened to our customers, we improved the speed added pinch zooming and so on. The device will appear on the market in fall. The cowerflow runs at 60 fps.”

Gallery: Nokia N8 vs Nokia N900 vs Nokia X6

June 27, 2010 7 comments

For your easy Sunday viewing, we have Michael who has Hell has taken some comparison pics of the Nokia N8 (Blue and silver) with the N900 and X6. For the full resolution pics, visit  HellMichael‘s flickr page!

The N8 is already Nokia’s slimmest touch screen at 12.9mm, but that tapered end makes it look even thinner.

Videos: Nokia N8 vs Nokia 5800 (in 6 Nokia N8 hands on videos).

June 26, 2010 13 comments

MForumRu has a host of Nokia N8 videos for you to look at. The one that’s worth noting is the N8 vs 5800 video (Screen comparison)

  • Obviously the difference is more clear in person, but even over the video you can see the richer, higher contrast, more vibrant AMOLED display from the N8 vs the TFT of the 5800.
  • Panning of the photos in the N8 is significantly smoother.
  • Zooming with pinch and zoom is of course a big plus over 5800’s tap/zoom bar
  • Also wider viewing angle from the N8 with AMOLED

This next video covers homescreen, menu, SMS, but you’ll also notice another comparison with the N8:

  • New icons (though 5800 is on non standard theme)
  • New QWERTY Keyboard


Camera and Video

  • Brief comparison of N8 and 5800 camera UI





Physical Overview

Gallery: Nokia X5 pink (and black/purple?)

June 24, 2010 5 comments

A collection of high res photos of the new Nokia X5 was uploaded by cssinsight on Flickr. It comes in pink, yellow, blue and purple, but above you can see what looks to be a black one, though it may just be the purple looking black due to the lighting/angle.

Whilst the pink looks frightening, the black (and well all the other colours) are actually quite ok, the black one looking great.

The Nokia X5 is a positively square phone, with a sliding qwerty keyboard. It features a rounded metal back that can be spun on a flat surface to change music tracks. Hmm ok.

It runs S60 3rd edition and packs a 5MP camera. It’s like a funky Eseries.


Pics: Nokia N8 vs Nokia N900 vs Nokia N97 (Huge Nokia N8 Review/First Impressions from

June 17, 2010 3 comments has put together a huge first impressions with the Nokia N8. As much of it has been documented before I’ll post up just a few main points of interest from their post. Note that it’s in French so apologies for anything lost in translation.

  • Fits comfortably in the hand (not as wide as iPhone, wider than N97 – good balance)
  • Better screen than n97, greater contrast, more vivid, blacks are blacker.
  • Nokia N8 – RM596 sold in France will all be made in Finland
  • 180MB free internal memory – well – just make sure you’re always installing apps onto memory card or mass memory.
  • Browser is weak point – not as fluid as the rest of the phone
  • From what they have seen, no management for tabs – long press no cut and paste (WTF! – are you frikkin serious? No multiple browser windows? Good thing for Opera Mobile. Man, S60 Browser NEEDS TO DIE IN A HOLE RIGHT NOW)
  • Currently no virtual QWERTY in portrait. Only T9. Not an issue for me as I want one handed T9 in portrait but I know many have requested this feature.
  • 12mp images load quickly despite their large file sizes (excellent considering other phones still stuck on 3mp/5mp)
  • Video editor well designed – can create montages from photos and videos (as well as adding text and transition effects) with output file in HD

Look at our favourite chunky monkey in the middle! N8 can’t be accused of being an obese brick of a phone. Mmm..that N8 black. I want it so much!

Gallery: Michael Hell’s Nokia N8 Black and Green bonanza

June 16, 2010 3 comments

Veteran blogger and highly respected Nokia and mobile enthusiast, Michael Hell has got his mits on not one, but TWO Nokia N8s. The sexy black and luminous green!

He’s posted a gallery over at flikr for you to check out in 3648 x 2736 goodness!

I think it’s posted (or soon to be) on Fone Arena where Michael also blogs (in addition to thoughts from hell) but I can’t seem to find that direct link.

Here’s some of the black Nokia N8 below and a few green. More over at Michael’s Flikr Page – make sure you click “All Sizes>Original”

I think I’ve pretty much settled on the Black N8. And I’m sure more cases will appear should I want to have something a little less conservative, shall we say?
