come on striker,what sort of rubbish are you talking about.if businessmen dont need a camera on their phones,why did they mounted a cam on the 9500?are you sure you know about phones?9300i is small and it doesnt even have wifi and the price you pay can get you maybe an 02 which will satisfy your needs better.maybe a mini!if they dont need cams,why on the 02?
It is basically the same as 9300 just this is in blue i dont ind any diffrences
Zameer.....Its because its a business communications device aimed mainly at corporate users, the majority of which don't need or use a camera. Including a camera would inflate the price even further.
the reason why our telecommunication infrastructure in the Philippines could not evolve into UMTS network accomodating 3G technology is because our telco's are afraid of losing profits for only 20% of mobile users are capable of upgrading and subscribing to 3G technology.
the reason behind this is that customer preference on mobile technology is limited only to second hand dual band phones, single-band (e.g. 5110, 3210), monochrome display, and obsolete models mostly provided by NOKIA coming from 1st world country. Most customers in the Philippines are able to purchase modest phone packed with bundles of technology but due to limited stocks, customers are inclined to buy second hand phones by NOKIA. That's why Philippines is far behind in terms of Mobile technology. We may be the texting capital of the world thats because majority of Pinoy mobile users uses obsolete phones.
I'm abit optimistic that our telco infrastructure would improve next year 2006 because Samsung launched a market take-over campaign in the Philippines over taking Nokia and other companies by providing cutting edge technology that suits everybody's budget. Still we're faced with the cruel reality that we became the garbage bin of obsolete mobile phones and other obsolete technology. The idea of dumping old NOKIA phones in 3rd world countries like the Philippines is an idea that raises our eyebrows. They can flood the market with junk phones but Pinoy customers are smart buyers.
by the way don't you guys, users of NOKIA smartphones notice that everytime there's a new model it has the same Symbian features but different physical looks. they change the design put an "i" after the model code, it has the same symbian features and sell it twice the value of the previous model. Unlike samsung or sony ericsson every model has a distinct experience from the other models, but enables you to familiarize basic navigation through its features.
Course they can Sam, all the manufacturers could. But why would they put a dent in profits - Its only our childrens futures!?!?!?!?
I have gone through the data shared on Nokias environmental policy am am sad to say they can do much more.....
The answer to that question is very very little.
The addition of WLAN, a slightly better battery, and a vomit-inducing design.
Those are the differences.
As a business phone, this phone suppoese to have 3G capability... because sometimes we need to have video conference in our meeting, right ?...
GPS Function may be needed also...
Camera at least 1.3 MP also needed for some reasons...
Next improvement is a SPEED... because my experience with Nokia 9500, that phone is really damn slow... Put higher processor which has faster speed and lower power consumption...
Forget about radio function because that is not important for business phone...
65K Color still acceptable...
So far only O2 XDA Atom has all requirements as real business phone and the phone also has a good design...
good phone,the bad thing is i go for design then function......so to me its not stylish enough but really good phone
Do you really they're making phones lighter and less solid than they used to for any other reason than profit?
Like you say, its the same with any product -when a manufacturer finds a cheaper material, they use it. But they could carry on making rock solid, hard wearing phones, but that would cost them more than to use the flimsy, disposable cheap plastic, so thats the order of the day.
Look at the 8800, a fine phone, made with the highest quality materials. That phone will soldier on for years, but my word didn't Nokia make people pay for that - you had to remortgage your house for the phone and its features ain't anything special. And that was the point I'm making. In days gone by, rugged, solid, long-lasting phones were standard practice at Nokia, I was a real Nokia fan and for a good few years, thats all I'd buy. But I turned against Nokia a couple of years back after seeing straight through their obvious customer un-friendly profit-grabbing competitor-bullying consumer-misleading ways. And I know I'm not the only one.
This is what Nokia says( About Enviroment)
" Design for Environment is a way of firmly integrating environmental issues into the research and development process for new products and technologies. The overall aim is to minimise material and energy consumption while maximising the potential for reuse and recycling. This is part of what we call 'life cycle thinking'. To find out more about other programmes, click here.
Nokia's Design for Environment tools help integrate life cycle thinking into business decision-making, aiming to design environmental solutions from the beginning. Our respect for the needs of future generations goes all the way from the production of raw materials selected to the recycling of obsolete equipment.
Nokia in the UK has been instrumental in the development of the Design for Environment tools and processes at Nokia Mobile Phones. The activities we are engaged in range from material substitution in mobile phones, to measuring and improving their recyclability, and reducing the energy consumed in use.
Periodically we conduct life cycle studies to deepen our understanding and ensure our strategies address the most important environmental issues."
All that you environmental friendly ppl are saying is crap. Nokia has changed the way we used u handle our mobile phones. In old times the cars used to be rock solid, so why are they making them lighter & less solid. Boss all these explainations do not hold any ground. Nokia has actually pushed the competetion against the wall. If they are working on newer & sexier models, its only thanks to Nokia. The entire defination of a Mobile has been changed and this has happenned only because of Nokia. If we see fewer companies sitting on their assess, it is only because of Nokia.
You take any damn product around us, you will find that the quality that we used to get in yesteryears is no longer present. This has only to do with our hidden desire to change, to be fashionable & to be modern.
Nokia has been working towards getting us cheaper & commercially viable products, to ensure that this wonder is placed in each pocket and that everyone is connected to everyone. I salte Nokia for "Connecting People"
And lastly none of companies work for charity. Nokia is a environmental friendly company and would do all in its power to save it. Anyways the old mobile phones do land in poorer countries due to market dynamics and no one needs to make a strategy for it.
Our environmental is being shattered due to much bigger project that we tend to ignore. Environmental is being polluted at a much larger scale by weapons, poisnous gases and what not. Because of Nokia, we are much more connected resulting in lesser wastage of raw materials and our resourses.
And the crap about Nokia Menu being boring! I have found very few people who will say the same till date. Nokia's reason of success is sue to its software development. Its the easiest and the the most effcient.
And I do not work for Nokia, but am a true fan of this giant.
