I’ve seen that some of you folks out there are looking for some of the latest Nokia phone releases. I tried my best to find some and I’ll share them with you.

This is the X2 Nokia and by looking at the specs it seems to be pretty basic. It comes with a 99,99 pounds label while SIM free. To be honest, the price is higher than the phone can deliver considering the basic specs as well. The phone can be purchased in Black/Red or Silver/Blue as seen in the picture. I assume the Black/Red version looks more visually attractive than this highly repulsive pallet of colours. It has a 2.2″ screen with a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels and supports up to 260,000 colours. The only attractive feature of this phone is the camera I’d say. It comes with the highly powerful 5 megapixel camera (2592 x 1544 pixels), which is backed up with an LED flash.

The E5 is pretty much the same as the precedented  QWERTY keypad models. It brings nothing new to the market just the desire to maintain the being “new” fashion. You can get this model in carbon black, chalk white, copper brown and a few other colours. Notice the fancy colour names? Ridiculous product marketing strategies… Nokia has equiped the E5 with a 2.36″ screen which is capable of delivering up to 256,000 colours. It even has the same 5 megapixel camera as the phone reviewed above. It may all sound nice, having a 5 MP camera but let me tell you that the actual potential of those cameras is overrated. The output is nowhere near an actual 5MP specialized camera. My point is don’t be fooled by the numbers.

The C6 is also heavily based on previous models taking into account the design. However, it does come with a full backlit slide-out keyboard with navigation key, which could come in handy pretty often. If you don’t like the keyboard much, then you might find the resistive touch screen useful. The 3.2″ size will enable easy mobility and functionality within the menu, which from my experience is not hard to predict. The 16.7 million colours help the phone provide a great multimedia experience when it comes to videos and pictures. The camera is also 5MP and generates both JPEG and EXIF formats. The phone can be purchased in Black or White. I’d definitely go with the black model as its easier to keep clean and just looks better overall.

 

To sum it all up, I’m not impressed with any of the 3 phones. Why should I be? If Nokia wants to sell us the same thing over again that doesn’t mean we have to play their game and buy them. Nevertheless, if I was in the position of changing my phone in the near future I would definitely go with the C6. I just feel that I get more for my money with the C6 even if it brings nothing new to the market. In the end its all about the consumer’s taste so my preferred model might not appeal to you. Before buying just consider the environment and ask yourself the question “Do I really need this??”

Here is a list of the 10 best selling mobile phones of all time, which I managed to get off wikipedia. Its very obvious why the nokia 1100 and the nokia 3210 made it to the first 2 positions of the list, and this is due to its high affordability and simplicity which meets the needs of the average user and both are probably the best in terms of quality-price ratio.

 

After finding some more concepts, I decided to share them with you guys. In my opinion looking at concepts can sometimes change the mood to a better one or could make you think “Oh! So that’s gonna be next!”. These microwaves on the steroids could be the next step in our daily lives thus it’s a good idea to know what’s coming.

This Nokia phone looks rather similar to the average mp3 player. However, it delivers a nice black touch with a centred display screen, which might attract some teens. In my opinion, nothing special here, just another Nokia phone.

The Connext concept seems to me like one of those concepts that delights everyone but will probably never reach the market. Looks pretty similar to the Nokia Morph concept with the bending technology, however, it looks more like a A/C remote control. The only Unique Selling Point it has, is the bending ability, excluding that, nothing  interests me in this concept.

Nokia has yet again surprised me with this amazing  E97 concept, which I hope will find its way on the market soon. It has a very practical design, which includes a QWERTY keyboard, a neat and sleek design with a nice glossy black touch and a very intelligent changeable memory technology. The display, which also contains the memory of the phone, can easily be removed and changed amongst other phones, which enables a fast and easy transfer of information and data. The main flow behind this idea, is the assumption that this phone will sell like iPhones or Blackberrys. If a very small number of E97 will be sold, then the memory transfer technology will be quite useless. On the other hand, i would buy this phone just for the looks, so this memory transfer idea won’t really affect me. Overall, Nokia has really nailed this one and has created a really attractive model.

The following post is directed towards all the mobile phone concept fans out there who wish to find out about some of the best designs in my opinion. The information regarding the phones will be limited, mostly because it’s not a review post its just for pleasuring the eye.

This Samsung Brix concept phone looks pretty neat in my opinion. I can’t really identify the exact shape of the phone but it seems like it has some sort of extendable speakers. Seems like a great phone for multimedia purposes. The main idea behind it, is that the user can add addition Bricks or pieces (like Lego) to expand the multimedia capabilities of this phone. If the user requires a bigger screen, then extra Bricks can be added and the screen will be enlarged. This concept functions on the idea of “Need more? Add more!”

Have to say that this Nokia Touch looks amazing and has great potential out there. Nokia has got us used to the huge diversity of models and specs they provide the market with but this one really stands out from the crowd.

S series looks great and probably feels great too, taking into consideration the wooden finish. You can just imagine this phone on the leather seat or on the leather dashboard of a Bentley. It has a great potential to win out in the business class for mobile phone users.

The whole architecture of the phone inspires luxury and quality of taste. It’s not only great to have it, but you will also create a sophisticated external aura amongst your business partners due to the sleek appearance of this phone.

For the past lets say 5 years, different  phone manufacturers have tried to catch our attention with various nice looking, high performing and inovative phones. But looking at this Nokia concept all of the previous releases from Nokia seem to be come from the stone age. The concept, called Morph, would use nanotechnology to reshape itself, display information, and accept input in any form. However, we must take into consideration the sad fact that this tech is years and years away and it will probably never happen in our lifetime.

It is worthwile taking into cosideration the main collaborators to this project. The Nanoscience Centre and Centre for Advance Photonics and Electronics both parts of the University of Cambridge.

Morph concept technologies might create fantastic opportunities for mobile devices:

  • Newly-enabled flexible and transparent materials blend more seamlessly with the way we live
  • Devices become self-cleaning and self-preserving
  • Transparent electronics offering an entirely new aesthetic dimension
  • Built-in solar absorption might charge a device, whilst batteries become smaller, longer lasting and faster to charge
  • Integrated sensors might allow us to learn more about the environment around us, empowering us to make better choices. (http://www.nokia.com/about-nokia/research/demos/the-morph-concept)
