RING THE BELLE
There used to be a time when Nokia spelt trust. Not anymore. While we wait for Nokia’s first Windows Phone device, we have in hand one that runs on the new Symbian Belle. The new OS still can’t compete with the IOS and Android. However, Nokia lovers who have never experienced any other OS will love this device. Like the C-7, the 701 too has a metal body with curved edges and a 3.5-inch capacitive display. The interface has undergone a change as it now allows us to add different sized icons to the homescreen. And all the applications are placed in the main menu, instead of in an application folder. Unlike older Nokia phones, this one has a 1 GHZ processor that speeds up the
time the device needs to handle demands like multitasking, browsing, email, downloading apps, etc. But the onscreen keyboard in portrait mode feels cramped and we struggled a lot while trying to use it for messages and email. With most other phones increasing the megapixel count, the Nokia 701 too has an 8 MP camera. But in default mode, images are captured at 6 MP resolution. This phone is Nfc-enabled and allows users to exchange data between two Nfc-enabled devices.
