"An optimal smartphone!"

This winter is remained been involved in the run of moons (points of an Italian competition) in the way of extinction created from the Telecom Italia, practically for who it has joined to Milleunatim before 2006 was reached the hour to consume the moons earned in 2004 and 2005 otherwise they would be mestamente expired.

Which better time in order to make a beautiful gift my girl? To saying the true one she has also contributed donating to my number of telephone its 2000 moons acquired in order to arrive to the fatidical total of 6500, that is the number necessary in order to obtain the good one from 200 € to spend in a TIM center for the purchase of a telephone umts of equal or advanced value.

Consulting the several one it catalogues of the models on hand for the fatidical purchase to the end the choice nearly has unavoidablly fallen on Nokia N70, the best one under multiple points of view, from the relationship quality/price to that functionality/design without to absolutely outside forget the reliability argument about the brand.

Brought in the center TIM to us of our city before what that has hit our look, before still to cross the threshold of the store, has been a splendid black N70 in exposure in display window, decidedly more elegant and originates them of the classic version silver that I knew.

Informing to us on the model in issue we have come to acquaintance who be a matter itself of the limited edition Music Edition, practically with 20 euros in more (from 279 to 299) could itself be decided, beyond to beautifulst cover the black one, of 1 GB of inner memory (to the place of the 30 MB supplied with the model base) and of one musical collection already to its inside (absolutely negligible).

Only for the presence of the memory card therefore and, naturally, for the fascination of the black one we have not been think two times and we have made our this cellular.

Chosen how much never guessed, to the light of the fact that physically has been expenses "only" 99 euro (thanks to the reduction in price of which over), and the telephone in issue is unlocked. But we leave with the characteristics of this product that sure will interest you more regarding as I have acquired it:

As already pointed out in opening it hits for its elegance and the sobrie lines, the all black enriched one from cover that to my warning of prominence the style improving a lot the visual impact.

The display, like all the smartphone (more than small telephones computer), because of smartphone draft f is much wide one and this conditionate also the dimensions that cannot sure too much be reduced.

What hits mainly but in handling it it is the weight, decidedly light regarding mine 6600, than, considered the dimensions and the members of which it is compound, indeed seems an exceptional result for the Finnish house.


Nokia N70 is equipped of operating system Symbian s60 (is not this the better place in order to list to all its potentialities, but I promise to you that I will dedicate to an opinion to part) that it renders it miniums personal computer in a position to executing applications of third parts, like software written in java or the true and own programs to it like Mobile TomTom 5.

Some will have noticed a something that sound badly, in effects the N70 with to the N90 is the only model of the series N of Nokia to still mount the previous version of the Symbian, little badly and much good to say the true one because there are still very little compatible applications with the new version and in more at the moment on this last one only applications can work correctly owners and therefore to payment, will understand therefore that it is sometimes to remain a step behind and a beautiful advantage!


From the first moment the keys many small and all group to you in a very small space under the display could seem indeed scomodi and little it works them and, to say the true creed just that it they are for who has the particularly large fingers, but if it is not in this last category also to write the messages after a pair of times it becomes easy and fast a lot that the near keys therefore seem to facilitate of the operations without to hinder them.

*** CAMERA ***

This is for me draft of a practically useless and fine functionality to if same on a cellular one, the insufficient quality of which generally they are equipped, in order to make the photos for how much regards to me is still necessary a dedicated device.

Partially the N70 refutes to me even if therefore much from it does not make to change my idea, the cameras from 2 MegaPixel in effects offers the possibility to take added photo all good in spite of the total absence of one zoom optical.

The operation moreover is particularly fast and easy, enough to lower the practical one case that protect the objective in order to activate the camera and, if you want to be amused little with your releases, you can easy modify your photos with the simple one editor on hand. The telephone moreover is equipped also of a comfortable one flash.


I was forgetting about a part decidedly important considering the edition of this model, music!

Naturally equipped of an optimal reader mp3 from the commandos simple and one to you radio that, with the inserted caps that carry out also the reception function, it is in a position to receiving very well marks them.

The added value, beyond to the wide memory on hand in order containing hundreds of mp3, is the earpieces in equipment that they comprise also incorporated in the thread a comfortable device of commando for the more common functions like the regulation of the volume or the choice of the traces, in order to manage to us calmly our listens without matter of extracting the telephone from the pocket.


Nokia N70 is a tri-band equipped also of technology GPRS-EDGE that, beyond guaranteeing an optimal reception of marks them concurs also to use it as modem for our portatiti ones them (connecting it through usb or bluetooth) in order connecting to Internet everywhere is found to us.

Available the logon to other devices you like PC, other cellular, auricular and analogous ones through the logon without threads bluetooth or directly through the cable usb with the PC. With the exception of some smartphones more given you of the same house the software it turns out to work in way flowing and fast, even if "weighted down" with particular topics or with more open applications.

Without to spend understanding them you could make yours one of the best ones produced in the field of the telephony, with the guarantee of the Nokia brand that, in the cauldron of the poor products currently in circulation, is not absolutely from underrating!
