I complained back in 2004 that Nokia didn’t have any model that pleased me. I had used 5 Nokia mobile phones at that point, wanted to buy a new one and did’t find anything suitable. Some months later I bought me a Samsung 720: a small clamshell phone with a nice design, lots of features and unfortunately one main flaw: voice quality. The number of people that have asked me: “are you in a tunnel or something? I can hardly hear you“. Those days may be over.
Beause Nokia now has the opportunity to return with a vengeance. I have been asked by the kind people of TheseDays to take the new Nokia N91 phone for an elaborate test drive. A phone with a 4GB hard drive and Wifi (802.11g) built-in, I wasn’t too difficult to convince.
So in the next couple of days I will be posting about my experiences with this 165g of high-tech. I am as curious as TheseDays whether I can be convinced to switch back to Nokia. Just a glance at the contenders: at your left, the Samsung E720,at your right the Nokia N91.
The Nokia N91 will be available in Belgium somewhere next month, the one I have seems to be #3 in the Benelux. Let’s find out if three is the magic number. In any way, a big thank you to TheseDays for qualifying me as ‘an influential blogger‘ and letting me test this fancy piece of hardware.
