stupiiiid nokia spore, do u read thaaat? u choose to release the monochrome 1110i but not releasing this E70 in spore??? i can see E70 in your neighbour nokia indo or malaysia website. if the sale of this form factor from prev models were not good, at least u can release in a limited amount??? c'mon, giv your customer a choice. who wanna get that stupid 1110i monochrome anyway.
i don't own a E70 but from nokia website, yes we can create the playlist. to view the step by step demo, go to nokia website of your country, choose E70, on the left menu, chose "Support and Software for Owners", then on the middle page there's a "Interactive Demonstration". take a look at that, nice demo.
To DEV or any E70 owners. A few questions please.
1) Does the E70 have a built in MP3 Player that allows to create PLAYLISTS like in the Nokia N80 or Nokia N73??
2) Out of a Scale of 1-10, how good would you say, is the sound quality for plaing MP3s through its speakerphone? Is it clear, loud, stereo, etc?
Thanx alot guys!
Can anybody give a review/opinion on the E70's email software? Specifically, for POP accounts, does it intermitantly automatically check for email? I currently have the 6820 which lacks this function and it is a pet peeve of mine. Other than that, any other comments on email?
hi experts, just notice that on the spec it states E70 OS is "Symbian OS 9.1, S60 3rd edition", E60 and E61 OS is "Symbian OS 9.1, Series 60 UI"
is "Symbian OS 9.1, S60 3rd edition" same as "Symbian OS 9.1, Series 60 UI"?
For anybody else who doesn't have the Golf game installed on their E70 you can get it here:
Also, my E70 came with a 64Mb MiniSD and Adapter. I don't know if that is the same whereever you buy it from.
Further to my comments as below, I just want to request to NOKIA people, you are providing such a good device, also softwares, why dont you provide us with the basic e-mail software like Movamail or Sirius Mail, we are paying such a high price for your Phones, Why dont you supply free such software which doesnot cost even USD 5 or 10/-. Are you listening NOKIA ???
You are worrying much about Silver colour, But I already said that Silver is not just silver only, They gave Greyish Dark Silver colour on Keypad (Both Closed and Opened Keypad) which may not be seen on Photos, on this the Numbers / characters engraved are dark coloured. Thus without illumination also you can see colours. Ofcourse after pressing light those becomes bright, But I am not sure of seeing difficulty in sunlight.
I tried phone several hours extensively and its very much stable and doesnot hang-up.
One point is that during opening PDF Files in Acrobat Reader sometime it says memory short and thus doesnot allow to zoom docment further or such actions. Anyway overall performance is very good.
I can also open Doc & excel files and amazingly the Power Point presentation also opening smoothly without taking any time, it looks very beautiful to see PPT on the Phone slide by slide.
Only and Only problem of this phone is that OS is Symbian V.3 which doesnot accept Java Application of even regular MIDP2 version and therefore the games and other Java softwares are to be made Phone Specific for which we have to wait for some more time till the software engineers and companies come out with the softwares for this model and OS.
I guess that was this the reason Nokia delayed this phone ? Because no other 3rd party applications were available to the time. However I could just install one game Meteor and the Phones colours and sound quality makes it great experience, really phone is very good performing if right
software/games are made for this phone.
Try the nokia retail shops listed here:
Can't see any in London but there are a few that are close. Good luck.
I have phoned a dozen london mobile retailers in the last hour and not one has it in stock or expects it sooner than a month. I'buy a pint to anybody who can provide me with the phone number of a shop that actually has it in stock...or is the phone simply not released by nokia yet???
howz the music quality of the mobile ? i like the keypad.so someone please tell me about the quality.
Try your nearest Nokia shop. I got mine from the one in Reading last week so they should have them in stock.
I cannot understand whether this phone is available in the UK yet or not. It came out on the Vodafone website two weeks ago, I phoned in and ordered it, then 4 days later they told me that they weren't sure when it was comming out, took it off their website, and now I am in the dark with my order placed, not really knowing when I am going to get my long awaited E70!
RE Backlight: Yes, the numbers seem to be illuminated fairly evenly, also on the fold-out keyboard.
RE Languages: On my UK phone it has the following language options, Automatic, Engligh, Deutsch and Polski. At least that's all I could see, I guess phones in other countries will have different options?
RE Stability: After 1 week I've had no crashes but I am not a heavy user and have not used web or email yet.
You Said:> "The backlight seems fairly bright to me"
That's a frequent misunderstanding. When the backlight equals the outside brightness (which silver buttons reflect), the contrast is low and numbers are hard to read. So assuming backlight were even as bright as the sun, you would then not see anything outdoors! Black buttons, on the other hand, do NOT reflect outside light and contrast is guaranteed, even with fairly low-power (battery saving) backlight.
You Said:>"BTW, the backlight comes on automatically depending on the outside light conditions..."
OK, perhaps that's how they solved it. 6820/22 ALWAYS came on as soon as you pushed a button. Thanks for the info. I think I'll post photos of my 6820 and 6822 this weekend to better explain the problem.
One more question: does the backlight illuminate all buttons evenly? With the 6820/22, some buttons were bright and others were dim, so some numbers were always difficult to read!
Dev, what about the stability of the phone. one of the problems being reported for all these new symbian devices are that the hang up frequently. did you experience any thing of the sort?
cmon, just read the spec of this phone on this gsmarena site. just 1 click away. if the site doesn't state it has a radio, it means it doesn't.
