Nokia 500 unboxing

I was not expecting much when Paul from WOMWorld sent me the Nokia 500 trial agreement. Two days later, I received the package containing this little fella:

First I liked that it's very light, I think it's the lightest smartphone I ever held. On a closer inspection, I noticed the excellent build quality. The device feels premium, even if it is an entry level smartphone. The exchangeable back covers are covered in soft touch rubber, and improve the phone's grip.

The 1GHz CPU shows it's muscle everywhere around the OS, feeling somewhat faster than it's bigger brothers, C7, N8 and X7. Somehow, the E6 seems a bit faster than the 500, but then again, the E6 felt faster than any other S^3 device.

Anyway, here's the usual unboxing video. I will come back with a full review in a week or two.

Craiova City by Nokia E6

I was lucky enough to test drive a Nokia E6 for three weeks, courtesy of the nice people at WOMWorld/Nokia, and I have to say that I was impressed. I also reviewed the Nokia E6 a week ago and the best phrase to describe the E6 IMHO is, "E6 - Connnecting two worlds". Why? Because this phone blends the business and entertainment worlds seamlessly. Now, anyone can see why the E6 is a great business phone. The outstanding QWERTY keyboard, Symbian 3 and a high resolution touchscreen take care of that. But the entertainment part may be unclear to some folks. So, I decided to film a tour of my home city, Craiova, Romania, and show it to you. The following video was shot entirely on the E6. The video processing was also done of the E6 Video Editor. Here's the result:
