not an iPhone, Nokia 6700 slide

Don't worry Don, this is not an Apple iPhone, nor a Sony product either!

I bought a Nokia mobile phone the other day. Don does not give his approval easily, and Nokia N900 is one of the very few that is in Don's approved mobile phone list. The Nokia N900 has just become available in Australia for not long, but I did not get it. In fact, I got a cheap pre-paid mobile phone, also Nokia brand - Nokia 6700 slide.

Nokia 6700 slide

Why do I need another phone? Well, this one is for Laurent.

Since I switched Laurent from Vodafone network to Telstra for better coverage, he needed a mobile that is compatible. The Nokia 6300 mobile phone (which I bought for Laurent) was locked to Vodafone. That 6300 can be unlocked but I don't see much point to unlock that phone since it is not a NextG compatible mobile and the camera is sort of crap (worse than iPhone 3G).

For the time being, Laurent has been using my old Sony Ericsson K750i, and my K750i has not been working well. There are many times the phone simply won't play the ringtone.

Since I got myself an iPhone 4 with Telstra, I looked for Telstra's prepaid offerings, and I found this cheap-ish mobile phone. I tested it for a quite a while, and yes, it is the right phone to get.

Next GFeatures of Nokia 6700 slide:
5 mega-pixel camera features Carl Zeiss optics lens and LED flash light
2GB MicroSD card (included)
FM radio and MP3 player
NextG compatible

And I found Nokia 6700 slide is a pretty good phone, it is much easier to use than HTC Touch Pro2.

To Don: Antony is poor.
