Nokia C6 On The Cutting Edge

Among the messaging phones that were presented by Nokia last April 13, by the way I received an invitation of the virtual event via DHL (Thank You!) but it arrived April 15th, it’s the Nokia C6 that shines best to me, not that it’s the only phone with sliding QWERTY form factor but it seemed that it’s one of the byproduct of my endearing wish list. As far as this blog is concern, I made a comment about Nokia coming up with sliding QWERTY keyboard’s that were distantly spaced (E75, Nokia N97 Mini) that it became a bit difficult to used specially in reaching middle keys, well they answered back with the C6 keyboard design by throbbing a closely compact buttons thus decreasing the gap in between. Though I haven’t tried using it, it seemed that it will increase typing comfort among users, Kudos Nokia! The idea of having a QWERTY keyboard was for faster typing; well this would definitely mark up the claim. I also like the idea of aligning the buttons to that of the screen; it doesn’t give a disorienting impression like that of the E75 where the screen is half width to that of the QWERTY keyboard.

I definitely like the phone design overall; it’s fairly attractive to gaze upon especially when the QWERTY is slide out. I also like the back cover design, brings a fresh look to the seemingly redundant Nokia back design where the camera lens were in the middle with the lens protector.

Most of my answered wish list was on the hood, the 250BM RAM that will boast further the phones multitasking capability, the 200MB Internal memory which will cover application installation, High Definition touchscreen display, full integration of Social Network applications, ESeries like messaging and email (integration of features between Nokia line up), N97 like customizable homescreen among others. The face and smile detection on the camera department is a welcome addition offering something new to the arena and I hope there were more that is yet to be announced.

Seven hours of talk time is a huge difference on mobile phones, mostly it could only last for 3 hours of talk time and so it’s a bold claim to make. The phone only have 1200mAh battery capacity, far fetch to that of the 1500mAh of N97’s but it last longer than the latter, the secret lies within the OS I think, it was designed to conserve energy efficiently.

Last but not the least and perhaps the most important shocker, the price, it will only be sold for PhP15,000 more or less, imagine how cheap that is considering the features and specs of the phone (better than the N97 flagship), its mind blowing! I would swear my witched neighbor dies if this phone wouldn’t sell by the millions, hah! Kidding! I could already imagine myself buying this phone by summer because of its affordability, tired of lusting for super expensive phones because many times, it end up to nothing because I can’t afford them. c”,
