My new N95
I have just acquired a Nokia N95. It cost me around 180? and a contract for 18 months with my present provider (Vodafone). I think it is a good deal as although it is a year old handset, it is still considered one of the best from Nokia. Anyhow, the path to this phone is quite long.
So, I had to acquire a phone. I am an old user of a Palm Vx. I bought it more than 8 years ago and I have been using it because is the only PDA that I have found reliable and usable. I have tried some Windows-based and they have never convinced me to make the switch. I had and iPhone for some time and although I found it really usable and of a superb design and performance, the fact that it was a proprietary system really dislikes me. So, after the positive feedback from the Symbian S60 and the need to join the PDA into a phone, I decided for the N95 because the affordable price. The only thing that rests unsolved, by the moment, is the text entry question. With the Palm Vx I was used to the graffity writing, so, when I had to enter data I just wrote it down the screen. For longer uses I had a foldable keyboard that was also very helpful. The N95 has not touchscreen and the only fast way to write data is to tap it with the predictive software. Notwithstanding I am trying to get a Bluetooth foldable keyboard for when I am traveling.
I will try to analyze and describe the migration steps in the blog as if it is useful for future users doing the same step.
