"My first smart(ish)phone. Flawed."2.5 starson by fihart
Pros: Well built. Slim. Battery life still good after 2 yrs (like my even older Nokia 2610). GPS with free maps is fun and even works (slowly) if you turn off expensive broadband assist.
QWERTY keyboard a nice idea but too cramped and keytops are shiny so r
Cons: Wireless LAN does not work. Apparently this was a problem with earlier Nokia models and some later. Nokia site and user forums attempt to suggest solutions, none of which work. Seems like a hardware fault to me. Wireless interface is awful -- the designer
Summary: Rugged, pocketable, good design poorly executed and let down by software and one crucial hardware problem. Showing its age.
I was fortunate to be given mine by a friend who was upgrading -- but I would not have bought this product.
