Phone test

I’ve never really travelled much with a smartphone, I’ve always had a cheaper phone mostly as an emergency back up rather than an aid to help my travels. I’ve been asked to develop a travel app before but never got that into it as it’s not something I’d use myself.

However earlier on this year I got an iPhone 4 after reviewing the Nokia N8 which I was kindly sent to play around with. I thought the Nokia, whilst a good phone didn’t offer much value due to the lack of apps and a awkward operating system, and with my Panasonic compact camera giving up after 5 good years of service I decided to invest in a smart phone for basic snaps rather than a new compact. I chose an iPhone 4.

However recently after that Nokia announced a new partnership with Microsoft and their flagship phone will feature the Windows Mobile operating system. Once again, Nokia went on a campaign choosing the internet to advertise, and I got my hands on another new Nokia, the Lumia 800, this time with windows phone, a whole lot more effort in marketing, see the video below to see what it’s about (only viewable on website not for subscribers I’m afraid).

The Nokia N8

The kind Nokia people at WOMWorld sent me a Nokia N8 to trial for 3 weeks and use it to enter the #N8 Producers competition to win a zero-gravity experience and flights to Florida. Unfortunately I didn’t get to keep the phone (boo) but I certainly enjoyed playing with it for a bit, coming from a Nokia 5800 and many other Nokias before, I got familiar quickly. Anyway, before I get too deep into the review, here is the video I submitted to the competition, it is of where I’m living in Japan at the moment.
