On Friday I got a call from Katie and Dominic from WOMWorld about a possible project this Thursday in London. It’s called Loopback, and as the title implies it’s about going back to something. In this case, the Nokia N85.
What will we do with it? Well with Chris (from WOMWorld.com/Nokia) we’ll be working with a school showing the teachers and pupils how to use the N85 for capturing video/pictures and using services like Ovi Share and PC Suite.
WOM have sent over the N85 to familiarise myself with it…
Being S60 and a seasoned S60 user, it’s really easy to get your head over it. I’m quite surprised by how much I actually like it. Vivid colours on the bright, high contrast AMOLED display, spring loaded dual slide, Na’vi wheel (-_^), and a great 5MP camera with dual LED flash. I can now see why some people have trouble considering the N900 against the N86. Before, it seemed something like the N900 would win outright, but there’s a lot of personal preference issues going on here too. S60 3rd has a lot of history behind it and it’s pretty much been perfected for the non-touch device on the N86.
There’s a quick unboxing video below of the N85 as comparison with the N95, N82, N900 and N97. [Video is a bit dark because of wrong exposure setting]
