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.
The Nokia C7 is powered by Symbian^3 and features a 8 MP camera with dual LED flash and is capable of recording HD video. It has a 3.5″ AMOLED capacitive touch screen of 640 x 360 pixels. Standard connectivity includes WLAN 802.11 b/g/n with Bluetooth 3.0 and HSDPA cat 9 speed of up to 10.2 Mbps and HSUPA cat 5 speed of up to 2.0 Mbps.
The earliest Christmas party goes to Nokia! Attended Nokia’s Media Christmas Party yesterday at Serenity (VivoCity). There are 3 early bird special gifts which is the Nokia 8800 Arte!
I won a Nokia E72 (White Edition) during the lucky draw as most of the journalists left before the lucky draw started and there are like about 15 of us left with 10 lucky draw prizes. The Nokia E72 (White Edition) has much more accessories (like car mount, bluetooth earpiece) than the normal Nokia E72.
SingTel is the first and only teleco operator (for the time being) to bring in the Nokia N8 and it has been available from 5th November 2010 onwards. To celebrate the launch of N8 and together with Sony Music, they have brought in David Archuleta (Wikipedia). Just in case you are wondering who is David Archuleta (like me at first), he is the runner-up of the seventh season of American Idol and he is the guy who sang Crush. I know the song crush from radio but I have no idea who sang he sang it till today.
I have been seeded the Nokia N8 through the Nokia Rangers program. I must say that N8 has a fantastic built and hardware specs and the camera is just amazing. But the Symbian^3 kills the hardware totally. The feeling it gives me is that the OS is not able to make use of the hardware properly. A good comparison is running Windows 98 on a Intel Core i7 computer.
The built of the phone is good, the glass is made up of Gorilla Glass and the body is made up of anodised aluminum. Not forgetting it has a capacitive touch screen with AMOLED display. The battery is non-removable though.
I met up with Simon from WOM World at Marina Bay Sands Hotel, it was my first time in the hotel itself. I was expecting the unboxing to be done at the river walk along the convention center. And I least expect the unboxing to be done at Marina Bay Sands SkyPark! I always wanted to go up but I can’t justify paying S$20 for it for non-hotel guest. Nevertheless I was surprise and happy that I can get to visit the SkyPark!
Took part in a Nokia contest organised by WOM World which involves blogger from London, New York, India and Singapore. I have no idea what is it at the moment. The only clue I get is 2 messages. All will be unfold next week! Keeping my fingers cross, hope I can win a Nokia N8!
