OK, I must complain about Nokia again.
I simply don't like Symbian and I find it hard to understand why Nokia is so successful around the world. The usability is supposed to be great - but it never felt great to me.
Now couple of weeks ago I played around with Nokia E-71. To tell you the truth I didn't even bother checking the functionality too much, what I did find is that the keyboard is one of the worst implementation of a QWERTY keyboard I've ever seen!
First - the device is elegant, I must give Nokia the credit for that, but since it's too small (and narrow) - the keyboard is way too tight to be comfortable. The person who is using the phone complained that he just can't type with it. Brrr...
Second - the buttons are too smooth and do not have enough height. As a result - you get a physical QWERTY keyboard that feels more like a virtual keyboard with all the problems of that (inaccuracy and slow speed).
Third - Symbian? Like: seriously you guys? Symbian?
OK, and now that we've passed that phase, let's move on to the next Nokia device: Nokia kaiser! (Brrr @#$#^ sorry...) Nokia N97!
Now here's a riddle for you all: WHERE THE HELL IS THE SPACE BAR???
You know? That useless little keyboard button used whenever you want to separate between words?
Oh I get it - is it that little button at the right corner? Yep you definitely have something there Nokia - how come no one thought about it so far? Why not locate the space bar on a mouse and call it a day?
Bad Nokia. Go to your room! And while you are in there - bring me a nice WinMo device.
(After thinking about it for a while...)
Ok, I can assume some of the readers may actually find this device pretty hot, and since I must show some objectivity - here's a cool video about the new phone:
