Here’s GSMARENA’s video unboxing of the Nokia C6, a budget version of the N97 mini (complete with N97 style homescreen) with 4 row, non-tilt slide QWERTY keyboard. There’s no speaking during the video but you do get an interesting background song made up of phone vibrations. Despite being S60 5th (S^1) and having ARM 11 […]

Click X now or prepare for a mighty wall of text. This time last year, we were all in anticipation of Nokia’s hottest flagship – the Nokia N97.

The New Nokia C6 – the best keyboard from a Nokia touch/QWERTY hybrid?

The New Nokia C6 – the best keyboard from a Nokia touch/QWERTY hybrid?

| March 14, 2010 | 8 Replies

On Friday, a touch-qwerty hybrid from Nokia’s Cseries surfaced. The Nokia C6. I wasn’t expecting anything like this from the core series. I thought they’d at least be non-touch like the recent C5. The C6 seems like a QWERTY/Touch hybrid for the masses. This is exactly the reason why Nokia’s range of smartphones might have […]

Inability to update Ovi Store app from the client itself [Ovi Store App updates itself now] There’s been at least three updates I […]

Carphone Warehouse have once again suspended sales of a high end Symbian Smartphone – a few months ago, Nokia’s flagship N97 (well at least with O2, Orange and Vodafone still sell the N97 via CPW), now Sony Ericsson’s Satio. Why? Both from complaints about buggy software leading to inexorably high levels of returns that CPW (and […]

This episode by Steve Litchfield reviews Nokia’s N97 mini. The mini is the baby brother of the original N97, (seemingly) created to rectify to abysmal mistakes when Nokia succumed yet again poor compromises which rendered the original N97 somewhat ever so frustrating in general day to day use. There are several positive notes that Steve […]

The calendar app on the N900 is the best iteration of a Nokia Calendar app on a Nokia Mobile Device. On its own merit, visually it looks pretty good; full screen with some slick transitions.
