The Nokia E5 is a new mid-range E-series smartphone that will entice buyers with great interest in the E72/E63 form factor to get it. Meant as a replacement to the ageing E63, the E5 actually has double the internal memory (256MB) compared to E72 (128MB),…

Nokia’s E72 firmware v31.023 is already out for months, but I did not do an update because past experience tells me the update will wipe everything off the phone and reset everything to factory defaults. But on a fateful day, I decided to go with…

Let me recall my history of mobile phone purchases and why I chose them. My first mobile phone was not by choice. SingTel launched the PCN (GSM1800) in 1996 and offered really cheap prices for the mobile package, so my dad bought a Nortel-brand mobile…

Yep, I cannot imagine not owning the E72 as it launched in Singapore on 14 Nov, but I had to wait until this Monday before I could get my hands on the Black edition from my nearest StarHub Shop (I could travel to another location…

Nokia N97

September 26, 2009 1

Nuffnang emailed me one day with an offer to “experience a new Nokia product”. When I collected it on Wednesday from Nuffnang office, I found out that it was the Nokia N97 that was launched in June. Apparently, it’s not the phone they wanted me…

After 13 days of embargo since I got the phone on 3 Jun, I finally can post my review on the LG Viewty Smart. As you are aware (if you follow my blog), I was selected to participate in the LG “Life is Viewty-ful” Photo…

The Nokia E75 is the latest E-series mobile phone, a replacement to the E71 launched in June 2008. 10 months have passed, but it seems like time stood still and not much new features are found in E75. While E75 boasts a large QWERTY keyboard,…

I have been using Sony Ericsson mobile phones since 2001 (with the T68) because mainly of its unbelievably list of features and its “open-source” data format. I could transfer contacts, notes, multimedia files via IR and Bluetooth to PC without any proprietory software. This is important for…

The Sony Ericsson P1i

September 23, 2007 0

It’s more well-designed than I had thought. When I initially saw the product announcement, I wasn’t very impressed with the look, and the keyboard which follows the M600i instead of the previous P-series. The M600i is totally plastic all around the casing. Not P1i. It…
