You may already be aware of something called HD Voice. Nokia wants to bring better call quality – something we’ve just come to accept as being OK to be poor. It’s on quite a few Nokia devices actually, but the old Nokia forgot to shout about these things.
The demo below was shown at Nokia World. There is a distinct “wow” moment the second they switch to a Nokia. Not only is there a higher quality stream, BUT, the background noise is also suppressed. How awesome is that? No more “say that again?!!? I can’t hear you?” or being forced to go away from the noise or turn your music down.
What’s even more amazing is that at Nokia world, Nokia said this is just the beginning. They’re going to be taking this even further. They wouldn’t comment on what it might be called, but when I joked that it could be called “Pure Voice” (with their Pure audio branding or the new headsets) they seemed to like it. It is essentially just the voice – as if you’re there speaking to them. No other noise, just the voice.

(p.s. btw guys you might have noticed infolinks turned on. The server seems to be ok at handling this now, and since google ads have officially stopped working – literally making 20 pennies a day, we need to look into other sources to keep the site up and running, looking into possibly growing)
