I picked up my new phone on Saturday. I ended up having to go for the Nokia 6670, and, initially, was disappointed that I did not get the Sony Ericsson K750i.
Now, after having used the phone for 2 days, I am pleasantly surprised with how much I like this phone.
I bought a blue-tooth dongle for my laptop. The phone also comes with the pop-port cable, which means my phone can communicate with my laptop in 2 ways. I have managed to send photos, files and contacts to my
laptop with great ease. I have also been able to set up the sync between my
Outlook and my phone painlessly, which means I can manage my contacts through
Outlook (and they are backed up) and my calendar and task items are on my phone
as well, so I can get reminders even when I am not in front of my laptop.
I am a bit disappointed about the fact that the phone
has a RealPlayer installed rather than a player that supports MP3 format, but I
have converted a couple of MP3s to RealMedia format, and the sound quality is
great, and of course, the files are much smaller in size. It just means I have
to convert my CDs to MP3 and then to RM, but since I cannot keep too many songs
on my phone anyway, it is not that much of a problem.
The quality of the camera is quite good. I suppose it
will be even better once I remove the piece of plastic protecting the lens *grin*
I am still looking for an anti-virus to load on my
phone, as this phone runs on the Symbian OS, which is prone to attacks. I am
just not prepared to pay the same for a mobile anti-virus as one pays for a
I am surprised, however, that the phones do not come
with an anti-virus built in, but then, Windows doesn’t either.
