It is rumored that Microsoft may by Nokia. Currently, Nokia shares are below their book value and it is struggling to stay afloat. But I think, MS made mistake by not considering Palm. If they are interested, then the RIM (Blackberry) will be better choice.
Hi guys, I have used NOKIA X2-01 for 3 months (or 5 months ? I don't remember). Here is what I have observed. Its no-frills phone, boasts no 3G, no MP cameras but a basic phone priced at 3550/- when I bought it: Pros: Excellent keypad: not comparable with E5 of course but at this price very good keypad. Texters will love it. Interface: S40 interface is quite good. I liked it everytime I saw or used it. In fact, I will say one of the best. Size: Size of phone is quite good in hands. Neither small as BB, nor bigger to be uncomfortable. Its base is little bit thicker than usual and shape is contoured a bit which may look strange at first but that special-shape makes it easier to hold it and form a stronger grip when you are taking it out of your pocket. Sound Quality: Sound quality in call is very good, voice is pretty clear whenever you talk/listen on both sides, not even a single time it will be of lower quality. Volume of ringing is average/medium. Just less than those songs played on indo-chinese crap with irritating-high volume. Cons: Speed: Phone is slow, whenever you open Inbox and it has lots of SMSs then it pops up with a messahe written "Opening Messages" and while closing another pop saying "Closing Messages". When you connect/disconnect the calls there is always 1-2 seconds lag in response. Battery: Does not last longer, have to charge it everyday if you talk for 2 hours everyday. VGA Camera: It has VGA camera, so camera lovers just forget this phone. You know how useless VGA is. Call Drops: I have checked different reviews on internet. Searched hundreds of gooles pages but no one seems to have call drops issue with this phone though I faced lots sometimes. Don't know whether location of my rented house is like that. Loudspeaker: Don't ever turn on the loudspeaker. I think at 3550/- its the best QWERTY phone you can get. I don't usually buy NOKIA but this was one of the best phones I ever had.
(Source: slashdot/zdnet) It seems RIM, Nokia & Apple have already provided back doors to Indian Military Intelligence for snooping on smartphones and MI has even managed to snoop on various US Govt communications from their Indian Embassy and other representative offices etc. I am forgetting the name of one of our RIMWEB members who was really really pro govt having power to tap RIM BBES etc without court orders, and i guess he would be really happy to hear this !! Though its really bad for privacy and citizen's rights and opens up only innocent people to misuse of govt powers, it does make me feel a little happy that at least our MI has some competence to snoop on Uncle Sam. On the other hand, there's a pdf "posted on the Net" showing the scanned memo about this from MI which really shows our security in a bad light - overseas hackers are able to get their hands on confidential GOI documents. Thankfully some portions are redacted. From: http://apple.slashdo...-to-governments Voline writes"In a tweet early this morning, cybersecurity researcher Christopher Soghoian pointed to an internal memo of India's Military Intelligence that has been liberated by hackers and posted on the Net. The memo suggests that, "in exchange for the Indian market presence" mobile device manufacturers, including RIM, Nokia, and Apple (collectively defined in the document as "RINOA") have agreed to provide backdoor access on their devices. The Indian government then "utilized backdoors provided by RINOA" to intercept internal emails of the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission, a U.S. government body with a mandate to monitor, investigate and report to Congress on 'the national security implications of the bilateral trade and economic relationship' between the U.S. and China. Manan Kakkar, an Indian blogger for ZDNet, has also picked up the story and writes that it may be the fruits of an earlier hack of Symantec. If Apple is providing governments with a backdoor to iOS, can we assume that they have also done so with Mac OS X?"
Hi There, Please let me know if any releases from Nokia is in market now. I'm thinking of changing my Nokia 6275 mostly looking with QERTY key board. I am inclined towards Nokia C3. I don't know if it has been launched in CDMA too.
