The Nokia Booklet 3g and its price speculations…

From the time when Nokia announced Booklet 3G, speculations are rife about the price that it shall be launched in the market. There are two prices being speculated in the at the moment 399 Euros and 799 USD which translate to Rs. 27,700 and Rs 38,800 respectively.

Keeping in mind that the Nokia Booklet 3G is a netbook, the price point seems to be a bit towards the higher side but a look at the specifications of the netbook makes the price of around Rs 30,000 seem justifiable if 12 hour battery life and HDMI support(Full HD playback) are indeed true.

The second rumored price point seems to be way above the normal netbook prices. At Rs 38,800 Nokia Booklet 3G  will be hard pressed for buyers. Continue reading “The Nokia Booklet 3g and its price speculations…”

Nokia N97 Mini gets clicked at with the N97

Rumors of an N97 Mini gained traction on Wednesday with images that may represent the device. These pics were hosted up on http://www.symbianfrance.com/2009/07/29/nokia-n97-mini-photos-et-specifications/ but got taken down.

The Blog Post said (French to English Translation) :

“You had already mentioned a few weeks of persistent rumors of a Nokia N97 mini. We friends of the blog N97 have a nice scoop out today by offering the first pictures of the mini N97.
At this level it is certainly a rumor but I dare not doubt the veracity of these pictures. I am however very surprised by the small difference in specifications between the 2 devices. At this level only the screen size (302 against 3.5 inches) and memory (8Gb against 32GB) seem to differentiate the 2 devices. The keyboard is different, the pad of the N97, which is very practical-is replaced by 4 keys guidelines.
So, hot I almost want to say that is there in N97?

Nokia Music Store Goes Live in India, Sortof

Thanks to Vaibhav of The Symbian Blog who today reported that the Nokia Music Store has been launched today, i checked it out the very same moment and it really did open but the only sad part was that its a soft launch and one cannot download the tracks as of now.

The Music Store has a huge homepage and instead of posting all the screen-shots i chose to stitch them up and give the whole home page in a single picture, which is on your left hand side. This is how the store opens on my N96 in portrait mode.

To access the store all you have to do is to open the Music folder in your device and click on the Music Store Icon, alternatively you can also type in music.nokia.com in your device’s web browser and you shall be directed to the Music Store app by the device itself.

The home page has the image of the latest Bollywood movie New York adorning the top, above which you shall find the options to sign in, join, for help and  to take you back to the home page. The music store does not work with your standard Nokia account and you need to create a new one for it, which i feel is a let down as Nokia has missed an oppurtunity to merge all it services under one Nokia(Ovi) Account. So this mean you shall need to click Join Now and sign up for the service, which is a hassle free experience. Continue reading “Nokia Music Store Goes Live in India, Sortof”
