Friday, October 31st, 2008

Nokia N85 launch in UK

Thursday, October 30th, 2008


There are phones which are dedicated music phone, or champ in taking pictures like the Samsung Pixon M8800 while phones like N-gage were good for gaming. With so many new launches in mobile phones market from others, long aviated N85 can now be purchased as Nokia N85 launching in the UK is confirmed and it is going to be priced around 665 USD which seems quite a lot for a phone but hope as always prices will drop within few weeks after launch. Talking about the looks of this phone, N85 feels good to hold and from the first look, it gives very clean and lean impression which as soon as you slide open the multimedia keys and begin playing games on it, you will say that ‘yes now it looks more like other Nokia’s otherwise in closed position with display off, anyone can mistaken it for HTC touch or even some new creation from Apple.

Camera is almost a standard now and N85 has a gem of a camera. The 5 MP Carl Zeiss leans coupled with dual Led flash provides excellent photo capability to the phone and in everyday use, the camera will never disappoint except in those very low light places (almost dark). Video recording is great and videos recorded by this phone are not at all pixilated with jerky playback, thanks to the 30 frames per second recording.

The interesting thing to know is that the 2.6 inch LCD screen of this phone is made from OLED (organic light emitting diode) technology is offers good color saturation and brightness. Not only display, built quality of the whole phone is good, a healthy 70 mb of internal memory is provided to the phone and external memory card slot supports up to 8 GB of memory card. So in terms of memory at least, this phone can be said as future proof.

People who use their phone more for music, than talking to someone will love that 3.5 mm headphone jack because now they can easily use any headphone and also plug this phone to any aux source for example their car music system and enjoy music in car which is played from their phone. For wireless connectivity, Bluetooth is there and with A2DP technology, we can expect some non stop music over Bluetooth wireless headphone.

Overall, this phone is a good buy for people who want more from their mobile phone.

Acer is going to launch its eMachines-branded entry level notebook pc ‘E520′ in Japan market on October 31.

Adopting a 15.4-inch wide LCD monitor with 1,280×800 resolution, the E520 is equipped with Intel Celeron 575 (2Ghz) CPU, 1GB of RAM and 160GB HDD.

In my opinion, Acer should have excluded Vista to lower price even more and also not many computer users are keen on using Vista.

Sweet. Carry two of these and you have 1TB (well not actually but nearer to it) data holding capacity with you anywhere.
