Symbian – the burning platform, as it has been dubbed by no other than Nokia’s own CEO – is getting improvements here and there. Just recently, Nokia announced a new series of devices running a newer version of Symbian—Belle. Here is the Nokia E6, one of the Nokia Phones that ship with Symbian Anna.
Two days ago, I got a unit of Nokia E61 shipped to me from WOMWorld. I have a few weeks to give my impressions of the device. Let me introduce the darling Nokia E6 to you.
Setting the phone up to start testing it out was done in a breeze. It asked for my Nokia Ovi account before initialization, but I skipped that stage in a hurry! This did not prevent me from setting up my email and installing my needed applications.
I was excited to find out that Joikuspot came pre-installed in it. I would latter use this to thrill my friend by sharing my internet data with him and he was simply wowed, yes!!!
What are some of my favourite applications and what are my first impressions about the device? I am putting it up nicely, taking photos and testing some of the features I like in a phone. As soon as my review is ready, I will put it up for you to read.
I must say that I picked interest in the phone because I am currently using a Nokia E71 – a QWERTY keypad phone. The combo of the QWERTY and touchscreen are the reasons I decided to take Nokia E6 on a date. I will let you in on how the date is going in my next post.
The only downside of using the Nokia E6 for now is that I have started to touch the screen of my Nokia E71 and my laptop. Of course there are some other downsides too. Make it a date with me in the next post.
Do you prefer a touch-only smartphone or you would rather go for a QWERTY-only or a combo like the E6? What are your reasons?
