Nokia N73 is as great as I assumed
The past week I have been testing the Nokia N73 and I have to say it is the best Nokia NSeries they made to date. I really like the design; clean ergonomis and with cool styling details. The 3.2M Auto focus camera with Zeiss optics render amazing pictures; the light flash for lower light macro shots is great (see the pictures in the The Fat Duck post they were shot with N73). The slideshow feature with Ken Burn’s effect is very cool. The stereo speakers are great. The bigger 2.3” screen is really great, big and bright. Having the full screen as a view finder is a good improvement. With the new Mini Map browser it is arguably one of the best mobile browsing experiences to date. Generally the speed is acceptable clearly better than N90. If you are looking to buy a camera phone then this is a great choice, as I predicted when I first saw the specs. The N73 renders the digital camera into the gadget sediment. At some point I might buy an SLR, but right now I have no time to have photography as a hobby, I only life record. Having a camera always with you, having it ready fully charged each day will any day outweigh the drawbacks of having to carry two products.
What makes the N73 special is: For the first time the N Series has appealing industrial design. It is clean, functional and still has an edge to it. The edge I refer to is the ‘aluminum grille’ protecting the stereo speakers in either ends of the device and the tapering towards the back making it sit great in the hand. The screen also screams big to the user. The fact that they kept the back clean is great only a big slide to expose the great camera. A key area of improvement is speed of camera activation also I do not like that one cannot use the joystick for photography. This is a huge step back.
If you are a 6600, 7610 or 6630 user this is the product to upgrade to. If you have been waiting for a good camera phone get this one and start to record your life. It is a lot of fun to capture the small mundane moments. With time some become monumental.
Honestly, when I first saw the model of N73, I said to myself: I am going to buy this cool phone as my next gadget.
Unfortunately, when I read the specifications, I was a little bit disappointed. No WiFi... :(
Why they don't put WiFi on N73. It would have been my "dream" phone if it does have WiFi.
Now I am still looking for another phone to replace my old Nokia 6680.

I was hoping this post might get you to share some N93 thoughts with us as well...

A great blog here. Many like this cover, but did not address the theme of the magazine's blog. I do not know how we got 10 years ago, but the print media. .
