Nokia 700 review for allaboutsymbian!

Nokia 700

“Aside from the tiny physical depth of the 700, the design is dominated by the speaker grille at the bottom, clearly styled to indicate that there’s a decent speaker underneath. After some testing, I’d rate the speaker quite highly, it’s possibly the same component used (albeit in duplicate) in the 5800 and X6 and sounds extremely crisp, with no high frequency loss due to there being plastic in the way (as on the X7 – twice, you may remember). The speaker itself is still less than a centimetre in length, so the full width grille is a little misleading, but I was still impressed overall with the sound coming out of the 700. Being a touch-driven phone, the display is of the utmost importance, of course. And it’s of terrific quality, possibly the same component used to great effect in the C6-01 that predates this 700. The ClearBlack Display technology works superbly and the nHD display is very crisp and clear, with that ‘painted on’ look we’ve seen in the C6-01 and E7 before it. Given that the 700 is arguably a direct descendant of the popular 5800, it’s instructive to put the two devices side by side: the 5800 is far more bulky and its display far, far less impressive – in alllight conditions.” Read more here:

New firmware for 5800 & 5530 updates Web to Anna UI

58005530FirmwareUpdate 58005530FirmwareUpdate

“The latest firmware for both the 5800 and 5530 are now rolling out and are available for over the air (OTA) update. The updates take the 5800 to version 60, and the 5530 to version 40. The update is mostly for performance improvements and bug fixing. However, Web has received a big update, taking it from version to This is only a few iterations behind the Symbian Anna browser, which is reflected in the updated user interface. Read on for screenshots and more details.The OTA update was offered to one of our 5530’s yesterday, but then mysteriously disappeared before it could be installed. However, it reappeared today and the 6.9MB download automatically installed itself without a hitch.While it is difficult to objectively measure, the overall performance does seem to have improved. Particularly, the application menu seems faster; this was always something that was prone to stutter in S60 5th Edition. Page rendering in Web appears to be significantly improved too.This highlights the point that even though Symbian is in its twilight years, older models are still being supported. Hence, a purchase of a Symbian device now, will be supported for as long as the device can be reasonably expected to be in use.The new version of Web now features the combined URL and search bar, as seen in the Symbian Anna browser. While this version is a few iterations behind that found on Symbian Anna (, it has the same support for tabbed browsing. There is also a toolbar along the bottom of the screen with controls for back, forward, bookmarks, tab switching, and a menu launcher.” via
