Nokia X7 Blogger Preview

The Nokia X7 is not really an upgrade to any existing model, similar to the Nokia E6, it felt solid. It has a 4.0″ AMOLED capacitive touch screen and the body is made up of stainless steel. It will be the second mobile phone running on Symbian Anna after Nokia E6. It’s battery is non-removable.

The unique design about the Nokia X7 is the 4 corners of the phone. The 2 corners on 1 side contains the speakers and the other 2 corners on the other side are just dummy placeholders just to make it look more proportionate/even. The sound output from the Nokia X7 is pretty loud.

Was invited to a blogger event for the preview of Nokia E6 and Nokia X7 (next post). The Nokia E6 will be out in June 2011 and with a RRP of S$570. For sales launch only the Black and Sliver color will be available. The White will be launched at a later date. Wonder does it face the same problem as Apple having “white” color, but of course the “official” answer I got from the product manager is no.

The Nokia E6 is an upgrade to my Nokia E72. The built remains the same (solid because of stainless steel), the battery cover is still made of metal and the screen is made up of scratch resistant glass.

SwitchEasy CoverBuddy

I have been searching for a case to protect the back of my iPad 2 and it must work with Apple’s Smart Cover. I chanced upon this thread, Smart Cover Compatible Cases List, in MacRumors which came in handy.

I did some research myself and the availability of those covers in Singapore and I came to a conclusion that the SwitchEasy CoverBuddy is the most value for money and it will definitely be available in Singapore.

SingTel does not have “Tag Lite” mentioned anywhere on their webpages. The only way to know more about it is to go to any SingTel Hello Stores. I first got to know it when I was surfing Hardware Zone Forums and specifically in the “MultiSIM with SingTel to use on iPad” thread.

Tag Lite Supplementary Plan allows users to share bundled data between supplementary line and main line.

The Bluelounge CableBox is the first Bluelounge product that I bought. I bought it when I was in Hong Kong back in April 2011 for HK$288 (~S$45.67) at city’super. Too bad they only have white color over there.

In Singapore you can find both the black and white color at Challenger (Funan) or at EpiCentre@Ion Orchard retailing for S$49.90 (Member’s Price: S$44.91).

I am just a huge fan of Bluelounge products. The Bluelounge Refresh is the first Bluelounge refresh that I came in contact with at EpiCentre@Ion Orchard. Too bad at that time, there is only pink color available and hence I got the Konnext SynCharger instead.

Fast forward 5 months later, the black color is back at EpiCentre@Ion Orchard and I just had to get it (there is also a white color available). It is retailing for S$139 (Member’s Price: S$125.10). I had pass down the Konnect SynCharger to my brother instead =p
