Today Nokia unveiled 3 new devices for those who are into messaging, emails and social networks.

The first one, Nokia C6 spots a 3.2inches HD touchscreen, slide-out four row keyboard (N97 had only 3 rows) and a 5 megapixels camera.

The C6 comes with all the features that can satisfy your messaging needs. With customizable homescreen, you will be able to get access to your favourite contacts, emails and Facebook updates at a glance. The Nokia Messaging app that comes prebuilt with the C6, can support up to 10 email accounts. (eg: YahooMail, GMail, Windows Live and Ovi Mail).

NOKIA C3

The C3 is a Series 40 device with full qwerty keyboard. It comes pre-built Nokia Messaging (for all your email needs) and Nokia Chat (the app that connects you to all your IMs like MSN, Gtalk, Ovi Chat, etc). The Nokia C3 also has the conversational SMS chat feature, so you can keep on top of your text dialogue and find your favourite contacts homescreen, where you’ll also see news and alerts.

NOKIA E5

I like this one. A new addition to the E series, combining all the good stuff from E71 and E72. The E5 is made for people who doesnt like charging their phones. Why? Cos the E5 comes with 18 hours and 30 minutes talk time (in GSM mode) and 29 days standby time. With the latest S60 v3 software, you can access your social network and contacts right from the homescreen.

Facebook updates are merged into your phonebook contact list so you can see what is everyone doing at that time. The E5 also comes with full messaging and chat features like the other messaging devices above.

Apart from the 10 email account support, the E5 also caters for the business users whereby it also capable of handling Microsoft Exchange and IBM Lotus Notes Traveler.

The Nokia E5 comes in five mouth-watering colours – Carbon Black, Chalk White, Sky Blue, Copper Brown and Silver Gray. Estimated to cost €180 before taxes and subsidies and is expected to be available in the third quarter of 2010.

Woot! Seems like we have another upcoming C series device!

According to Engadget, the upcoming Nokia C6 is a 5230 lookalike with slide out full qwerty keyboard.

In my opinion, apart from the 3 buttons at the bottom of the screen and the bezeled frame, it looks kinda nice. I like it cos it has a 4 rows keyboard instead of 3 rows like the N97.

The Nokia C6 should be of a lower range than the N97 mini as it doesnt have the big hard disk space like the N97.

More news to come! Stay tuned!

Got loads of money but don’t know how to spend them? Fret not!

Nokia has just announced a product that you might wanna purchase and lighten up your wallet.

Introducing the luxury version of the N97 Mini, built with 18-carat gold and comes with fashionista apps like “ELLE 360Fashion” so you can stay up to date with latest fashion and spend more money buying clothes to match your shiny gold Nokia N97 Mini.

In my opinion, with the inclusion of fashion apps, Nokia is trying to target this to the female community. What say you?

The gold edition has the same features and specs like the ordinary one: 3.2inch touchscreen display with 360 x 640 pixels, full QWERTY keyboard, WiFi, 3.5G, GPS, Nokia Ovi Maps, 3.5mm headphone jack, 8GB internal memory, and a 5MP camera with autofocus and LED flash.

Ive been playing with the X6 for a while now and it seems like I’ve been showing the Playlist DJ feature on it to everyone I meet.

So what’s this feature about?

It’s actually an app that profiles your music and then sort them out for you in a playlist according to the mood you set. The icon can be found in the Music menu.

Once you are in, 4 mood sliders will be shown and the bottom half of the screen will display list of songs filtered. The 3 buttons at the bottoms are : Play, Search song and Create playlist.

The options allow you to profile your music, sort of like indexing files on your computer, select playlists and remove songs.

Now that we have gone through the features…. do you think it really works in sorting songs to match the mood you set with the slider? Check out the video below.

So do you think you will use this feature? What other things do you think it should have in the future?

Thanks Nokia Malaysia for letting us be a bunch of the ealiest people in the country to own the Nokia X6.

It was at the recent Comes With Music bloggers session that we got introduced to the upcoming service and got our hands on the X6 each.

At the event, Nokia actually presented to us their music devices roadmap and how it all led to the born of the latest in the line, the Nokia X6.

Some of the more notable features/specs of the device:
# Capacitive touch screen
# Size: 3.2?
# Resolution: 640 x 360 pixels (nHD)
# 3.5 mm Nokia AV connector for audio and TV-out
# Small DC jack
# 32 GB internal memory
# 3.5g, WIFI

This is how the packaging looks like. Typical Nokia design. Easily recognised.

The device comes along with the superb Nokia WH500 foldable stereo headphones.

So how much better is it compared to its sibling, the Nokia 5800? Well its very solid and doesnt produce any creaks when squeezed. The capacitive touch screen gives an impression that the OS is not sluggish (although its still kinda slow in transitions for some screens.. which is still acceptable).

The speaker is super loud, on par with the Nokia 5800 and the N96. Located at the right side of the phone, Nokia hopes that it will let us experience stereo sounds when we watch videos holding the phone horizontally. One thing lacking is the stand. Coming from a Nokia 5800 and N97 user, I’m used to placing the phone on the table with a stand or a slide out keyboard for watching videos but not possible for the X6.

The camera is good! Comparable with the N97 and the N85. The X6 is very good at taking macro/close up shots.

More detailed review will be done soon, so for now, check out this video I recorded of the Nokia X6.

Price of the Nokia X6 is still unknown as it is not launched in the market yet. Will update you guys once I get the news.

Another Symbian slide phone? Yes.

This time around Nokia launches a slew of colours for the new Nokia 6700 Slide to match your everyday mood. There are six stunning colours to choose from are aluminium, pink, petrol-blue, red, lime and purple… (somehow this reminds me of the iPod Nano).

The 6700 Slide has a 2.2″ screen and a full aluminium frame.

This device is an imaging monster too, spotting a five megapixel camera, Carl Zeiss optics, dual LED flash and a dedicated camera button, this is like an Nseries already! Not forgetting the capability to edit photos and upload them to social networks on the go.

The Nokia 6700 slide also excels in the music aspect, as it comes with an FM Radio, 12 days standby time, 4 hours of talktime and 29 hours of music playback via headphones!

The device will be expected to be available in the first quarter of 2010, the 6700 is estimated to retail for €160 before taxes and subsidies.

Check out the promo video of the Nokia 6700 Slide below.

Which colour are you? :D

Nokia Conversations has recently posted a video hands on with the Nokia N900 Maemo device showing off the browser performance and some tips and tricks of the user interface.

I’d say it’s quite impressive since the Mozilla browser on the device supports Flash and is very user friendly.

In the video you can see them playing FarmVille on Facebook using the N900 browser.

Viewing history pages can be activated with a swipe from outside the screen. Another wow.

Check out the video to experience it yourself.

Now do you want a Nokia N900 already? :D

As mentioned in my previous post, the Nokia X6 was featured at the recent Nokia OneConnectedWorld conference and I got the chance to play around with the device trying out it’s new display, camera and other features.

Click here to view some sample shots from the X6.

First of all, the X6 is the first Nokia that comes with a capacitive touchscreen. The dimension of 3.2″ with 640×360 resolution display is big enough for most of the video and photo viewing tasks. The responsiveness of the capacitive screen was definitely a lot better than the 5800 and also the N97. A slightest touch on the screen is sufficient to trigger actions on the interface.

Speaking on interface, the X6 comes with a new homescreen that allows a carousel view of favourite contacts and there’s also a shortcuts bar at the bottom of the screen. I think this is more usable than the one on the 5800 XPM.

Since the X6 is the highest end device in the music line, the audio playback should be of a certain standard in speaker quality and also the music player interface.

Well, I can say that the speaker plays audio very well. Loud and clear (thanks to the dedicated audio chip for crystal clear hi-fi sound quality. Still, it lacks bass but I’m sure its a totally different story if music is played throught the earphone). The player interface on the other hand is quite a dissapointment as it looks and works the same as the 5800 XPM. The X6 supports mp3, SPMidi, AAC, AAC+, eAAC+ and WMA.

The X6 comes with a Carl Zeiss 5 megapixel AF camera (2592 x 1944 pixels), 4x zoom and dual LED flash. From some shots I took. I realised that the X6 can take photos really well. The desaturated-when-indoor problem almost didnt exist on this one so it’s a good thing. It also records video at 640×480 resolution at 30fps.

Check out these videos of I took of the Nokia X6.

Attended the Nokia OneConnectedWorld conference today and got the chance to try out the new Nokia X6 music phone.

The X6 and X3 music series were announced few weeks ago at Nokia World.

I’ll do a review of X6 (with video hands on) after this.

For now, let’s check out how the 5mpx camera performs under low light indoors. Click on the images below to enlarge.


Macro with flash

Moving objects.

Somehow I think the photo quality is better than those taken by Nokia N97.

This is part 2 of our 3-megapixel battle between the Nokia 5800 and iPhone 3Gs.

In this simple battle, we will see the pros and cons of both video camera in a few aspects:
- Recording at infinity distance and zooming
- Focusing and macro recording.

First up, let’s see how both devices fair in recording and zooming.

iPhone 3Gs

Nokia 5800

Verdict: The Nokia 5800 XPM produces clearer and smoother video and has the zooming capability with louder audio reception. iPhone 3Gs on the other hand, cannot zoom and has a less sensitive mic.

Second test: Focusing and macro capabilities.

iPhone 3Gs

Nokia 5800

Verdict: iPhone here has the upper hand as it allows pre-focusing (which is very good for recording at very very short distances) while the Nokia 5800 does not have focus at all (resulting in blur objects and close distances).

What do you think of both cameras? Leave a comment and let us know.

Remember our post on 5 megapixel camera battle among Nokia N96, N97 and Sony Cybershot a while ago?

This time around, we thought it might be interesting to compare the camera capabilities on iPhone 3Gs and Nokia 5800 since both of them come with a 3megapixel camera (3.2 for 5800).

In this battle we will be looking at the capabilities of both devices to capture portraits, backlit, macro, indoor and low light photos.

Now lets see how these 2 devices fair in the battle. All photos were taken using auto mode and unedited. Click on the thumbnails to enlarge.

Test 1: Portraits

Nokia 5800 iPhone 3Gs

Our verdict: The 5800 produces sharp image but desaturated while the iPhone maintains the natural colour but not as sharp as the one by 5800.

Test 2: Back lit objects

Nokia 5800 iPhone 3Gs

Our verdict: The same thing is happening here. Sharp and desaturated photo by the 5800, but it tries to increase the exposure to bring out the shadows while the iPhone maintains the natural lighting and colour.

Test 3: Macro

Nokia 5800 iPhone 3Gs

Our verdict: It’s quite obvious that the macro shot by the iPhone here is better looking than the one by 5800. Probably because the 5800 tried to bring out the shadows again causing the whole image to overexpose.

Test 4: Indoor with incandescent lighting

Nokia 5800 iPhone 3Gs

Our verdict: I have been having this problem with Nokia cameras since the N82. When it comes to indoor lighting, the photo tends to desaturate. Other than that, everything is fine. Another vote for iPhone here.

Test 5: Low light

Nokia 5800 iPhone 3Gs

Our verdict: This was taken in a very very dark room. The LED flash on 5800 helped in illuminating the objects resulting in very clear and crisp photo while the iPhone [no flash] tried very hard to expose the objects resulting in a very noisy photo.

So there you go! the 3megapixel battle between the Nokia 5800 and iPhone 3Gs.

What do you think of the photos? Which camera do you prefer? Do leave a comment and let us know your thoughts.

Right out of the oven! Nokia just announced 2 new music devices modeled X6 and X3 at the current Nokia World 09 event at Stuttgart, Germany.

Nokia X6

It’s a whole new design for their music line and the X6 is the slimmest touchscreen device Nokia every produced at only 14mm thin! The X6 also packs with 32GB of internal memory, 3.2inches touchscreen and 35 hours of music playback.

The X6 is also a Comes With Music device. That means you can get music into your device right out of the box without the need to purchase anything extra. The 3.2inch touchscreen is suitable for viewing photos videos and the new contacts bar on the homescreen allows users to pack in 20 favourite contacts for easy access.

What other exciting stuff are there in the X6? 16 days standby time, a 5-megapixel camera and Carl Zeiss optics, dual LED flash, TV-out, video editing, online sharing, Nokia Music store, full web browser and Flash Lite support, A-GPS, Ovi Maps and Playlist DJ.

Gaming? YES! Spore is included, along with DJ Mix Tour and Asphalt4. The Nokia X6 will be available in the 4th quarter of 2009 and will be priced at about 459 Euro before tax and subsidies.

Nokia X3

The other Xseries device catered for a casual level of users is the X3. Unlike the X6, it runs on the usual Nokia S40 OS and it is the first S40 device with Ovi Store enabled.

The X3 comes with a 3.2megapixel camera, 2.2inch screen, stereo speakers and supports up to 16GB of memory via MicroSD card. It also comes with Bluetooth 2.1 for wireless music headsets and 3.5mm headphone jacks if you want to use your beloved music earphones.

The X3’s messaging feature spots the new Nokia Xpress Audio Messaging and Nokia Messaging 2.0 brings users’ existing email and IM accounts to the device.

After days of pondering about the newly announced Nokia N900, I seriously think that it has the potential to take on Nokia’s Nseries line for at least 4 years before the launch of the new Symbian^4.

The hardware specs are top of the line that is unmatchable by most of the devices out there.. 800×480 resolution screen is what Internet devices supposed to have as they can view entire websites without the need to scroll left and right. The processor is also something worth mentioning. TI OMAP 3430: ARM Cortex-A8 600 MHz, PowerVR SGX with OpenGL ES 2.0 support. More features you can read about here.

Some Maemo OS features include:
- Live Multitasking: activate the task manager and you can view all running applications in the small LIVE thumbnails.
- Panorama homescreens: from the video below, we can clearly see the multiple homescreens switching by just swiping on the screen.
- Firefox browser: yes I’ve mentioned this before and I am still very excited and would love to try it as soon as I can. It supports full Flash 9.4 (not flash lite like most Nseries) and AJAX.
- Integrated contacts & messaging: with Instant Messengers integrated into your contact list, every text message or IMs will get the threaded conversation look.

The list of features just go on and on.

One drawback though. There isn’t any available applications for Maemo5 yet since its still new. Hope Nokia will be able to engage more developers to come out with exciting apps and games for the N900.

For now, check out this hands on video that shows off its LIVE homescreens and browsing capabilities.

Full details on Maemo5 and Nokia N900 here.

Best device EVAR!!!!!!! (well to me at least.. lol) Nokia has just announced their new powerhouse device, the Nokia N900. It’s a mobile computer(with phone functionality) that is powered by Maemo5 Operating system. Maemo5 is the evolution of the OS in Nokia’s internet tablets like N800 and N810.

The N900 spots a horizontal slider that reveals a full QWERTY keyboard (like the N97), a 3.5inch WVGA screen (800×480) resistive touch screen, ARM Cortex-A8 600 MHz processor with 1GB of application memory (256 MB RAM, 768 MB virtual memory), OpenGL ES 2.0 graphics acceleration, 5megapixel Carl Zeiss optics camera, Wifi, aGPS, 3.5mm headphone jack (TV Out too), 32gb of internal memory and supports microSD card expansion.

One thing I really really like about the N900 is the browser. It’s the new Fennec browser powered by Mozilla technology, supports Adobe Flash 9.4 and AJAX. Other features are like customisable ‘panorama’ desktop and multi-window task switcher. Users can now create multiple homescreens for everything! Probably one for music, one for widgets, one for favourite contacts etc. Task switcher allows user to view all open apps in a glace to see everything running in them Live.

Other features:
# Unified communications and address book: voice calls, internet calls, instant messages and SMS. Includes the ability to merge phonebook, Skype contacts and other contacts into a single address book.
# Ability to share status, location with friends, keep multiple IM and SMS converstions going and move between them.
# Nokia Messaging pre-installed, mobilise up to 10 personal email accounts. Includes quasi-push email and rich HTML support.
# Video playback mp4, .avi, .wmv, .3gp; codecs: H.264, MPEG-4, Xvid, WMV, H.263: up to WVGA (800 x 480) at 25 frames per second; WMV: VGA resolution at 30 frames per second; Dual LED Flash.
# Video streaming in the browser.
# Music playback formats include MP3, AAC, AAC+, eAAC+, M4A, WAV, WMA.

The N900 will be available in selected markets from October 2009 onwards at a cost of €500 before taxes and subsidies. More info on http://maemo.nokia.com

What’s the buzz around these days?

It has to be none other than the new 5800 upcoming firmware update.

It is believed that the update will add kinetic scrolling, widgets and enhanced homescreen similar to the recently announced Nokia 5530 XPM.

It should look like this if I’m not mistaken, 5530 homescreen + 5800.

As much as we are excited about the kinetic scrolling feature, it only works partially. The homescreen (contacts bar), contact list and the web browser. Well, better than none at all, right? :D

Other updates that comes with the firmware are improved response time and camera performance. The new firmware is expected to be out soon after the launch of the 5530 XPM. So be patient and wait for it yo!

Just in case if you are unaware of the kinetic scrolling and the new homescreen (with contacts bar) of the 5530 XPM, check out these video below.
