The Nokia 8600 – Fashion High Mobile Phone

The Nokia 8600 – Fashion High Mobile Phone

Online phone retailer has posted a  little more information on the Nokia 8600 Luna phone. The Nokia 8600 is being called Nokia Fashion High mobile phone.

“The Nokia Fashion High mobile phone is so new it doesn't even have a model number. As its code-name suggests, this is a handset with a distinctly fashionable feel. The rounded corners and smooth features give it an almost-futuristic appearance - as does the on-screen menu system.”

The High fashion Luna sports a 2 megapixel camera for photos and videos, an MP3 player for music with 1GB of built-in memory. The sliding keypad protector is made with a transparent material

Nokia Concept Video: Finland won’t roll over for iPhone

Nokia Concept Video: Finland won’t roll over for iPhone

John Tokash does his bit to remind us that the iPhone isn't the only cellphone promising multi-touch input; in fact, Nokia presented a variety of concept videos back at their last conference, all making heavy use of finger-jabbing and stroking to move around the interface.

 

Although the run-up to the Apple cellphone launch is going to be fraught with leaks and snippets of hands-on information, for what it's worth I think the aftermath of the release will be the most interesting period.  You could certainly argue that the cellphone market is one of the hottest contested and has the fastest turnover among current tech - here in the UK it seems like there's a new "must have" handset every week - and you can bet the ass of your neighbour that Nokia, Motorola, Siemens and the rest are busily stoking the creative furnaces to usurp the iPhone before it has had much of a chance to sport its crown.

More video after the cut.

More on the Nokia N800 Internet Tablet

Okay, so it was only earlier on today that I wrote an article on Nokia's N800 internet tablet, but the information comes thick and fast and we're already due for an update.  In that post I pondered something a lot of people were asking - can the device handle YouTube streaming video?  Well, John Tokash has gone all-out on exploring the limits of the N800's capabilities, and it turns out that when it comes to online videos it's a disappointment. 

As you can see, playback is stuttering out at 1 or 2 frames a second, which is painful to watch.  Audio is generally unmangled, however.  John also looks at the usability and design updates in comparison with the 770, which makes his articles equally interesting to the first-time potential buyer and the upgrade-considerer.

Nokia N800 analysis – will the web tablet survive?

Nokia N800 analysis – will the web tablet survive?

After the rumour and gossip (with no small amount of wishful thinking mixed in) there seems to be a flurry of Nokia N800 information hitting the web.  Successor to the admired-but-flawed 770 Web Tablet that both impressed some and was dismissed by others, the N800 continues the theme of a large touchscreen-led device that connects either via WiFi or through your cellphone over a Bluetooth link.

From the back of the box we learn the specs:

- VGA (640×480) webcam
- Integrated Stand
- 4.13 inch screen (same as the 770)
- Stereo Speakers (770 has mono)
- Microphone has moved to the top.
- Audio jack and mini usb port have moved to the right side.
- Requires mobile phone (with Bluetooth) for cell connection.
- Wifi and Bluetooth

RAM or CPU, a source of some frustration among 770 owners, are reported to be 128MB and 320MHz.  The nubbin on the top left hand side is the webcam, which is retractable to prevent it from catching on clothes or braces.  Previous information also points to the N800 having dual miniSD slots, although the built-in GPS some were hoping for is conspicuous by its absence.

Nokia’s Augmented Reality GeoTagging Research

Nokia’s Augmented Reality GeoTagging Research

To me, "augmented reality" always sounds like the advertising gumph of some sort of hideous latex sex-aid, possibly with a USB plug because everything else seems to have one of the damn things these days.  However Nokia Research would like us to consider it in slightly less X-rated terms - superimposing data onto an image of your surroundings in real-time.  Using a 6680 handset modified to include accelerometers, compass and GPS, the team has put together a proof-of-concept system which monitors the location of the phone and overlays virtual information tagged to different objects as shown on the display from the camera's POV. 

Nokia Augmented Reality - info overlay on real-world viewURLs can be associated with objects, giving quick access to local information, and the device can both use data locally-stored or from a remote server.  The latter would allow applications such as "find a friend", where the moving location of another object could be streamed to a user's cellphone.  The prototype also has map functionality, accessed by holding the handset horizontally, which highlights the user's location and annotates nearby points of interest.  There are streaming videos of different functionality on the Research page, linked below.

Nokia 330 Auto Navigation stops in-car slaughter

Nokia 330 Auto Navigation stops in-car slaughter

"Riding along in my automobile," Chuck Berry sang, "my baby beside me at the wheel."  And yet we can only assume heartache and misery was just around the bend, as Chuck asked his baby which way he was supposed to turn, and she said something along the lines of "I don't know, why do you always leave the map-reading to me, my mother was right, you're just the same as all the other men, I need the toilet, stop the car" before they beat each other to death with their own bloodied limbs.

Death could've been avoided had Nokia released its 330 Auto Navigation GPS sat-nav system back in 1964, but instead it chose to do it today.  The 3.5" touchscreen-equipped device has full Europe-wide maps stored on a 2gb data card inside its slender body, and runs the Route 66 Navigator 7 software with NAVTEQ map data.  Should you have pulled into a lay-by and be cuddling with your Sweet Little Sixteen, the 330 can serenade you with some Rock and Roll Music, or even a slide show or videos.

Canon EOS 400D digital SLR unboxing

I'm not all that big of a photographer, so my Sony T7 and the 3-megapixel camera in my Nokia N80 suit me fine; however, there are lots of you out there who I know are drooling for prosumer digital SLRs like the Canon EOS series.  Jenneth at Girls Gone Mobile has just taken delivery of the EOS 400D and, showing great restraint, has documented the unboxing and put the battery on for a full charge before using it.

Unboxing the Nokia E70 Smartphone

Unboxing the Nokia E70 Smartphone

While it’s still very early to provide an accurate feedback on the Nokia E70 smartphone, I do want to say a few things. The split keyboard is somewhat of an acquired taste. Similar to sushi, once you’re hooked on it; you’re pretty much hooked. However, I prefer the full time availability of the keyboard on the E61 (click to watch the unboxing of the Nokia E61). The other BIG difference that creates the urge to run back to the E61 is the screen size. The screen size on the E70 is much smaller, compared to the E61 . Nonetheless, the screen is still very beautiful and the text is super clear. I’m annoyed by the very limited shared memory allocated to the web browser. For a super smartphone with WiFi, there’s just not enough memory for browsing. I’m definitely going to contact Nokia to get an explanation on this. Click over to watch the unboxing video.
