What the hell is wrong with Nokia?

December 10th, 2004 Leave a comment Go to comments

I’m talking about this: http://www .theregister.co.uk/2004/12/09/review_nokia_6670/. Essentially, it’s a 7610 with a decent key pad. I actually hated the look of the 7610, it was just ugly, and the keypad looked disgusting. So, if you are going to need to produce a copy of the same phone with a decent keypad, why not produce like that in the first place!

I used to work in a mobile phone shop. I sold literally hundreds of phones. If someone ever asked me what the best phone was, it was always a Nokia.

But times change, and it seems so has Nokia’s direction. Instead of producing 3 maybe 4 new, and also very decent, handsets a year, they seem to be producing a new one once a month, with small changes between the models, and which don’t seem to meet that standards or the expectations that people used to have from Nokia handsets, simply because they have been rushed out the door.

STOP IT! It’s driving me mad!

As an example, I used to own a 7650, which was fantastic, I couldn’t fault it, it was superb. About 6 months ago, I got a 6600. A step up I thought. No, it’s been more of a step down.

The phone seems to have a real problem with SMS Messages, and with Voicemail notifications. And every so often the Bluetooth stack will crash, or the phone will turn itself off, or…..

When my contract comes up for renewal in May, I’ll be looking at Sony Ericsson, or Siemens. Certainly not Nokia!

OK, I’m not going to go for a Samsumg either, judging by my friend Richard’s Encounter with one
