Popular Nokia N70

Despite being an otherwise excellent handset, the Nokia N70 struggles to measure up as a business phone mainly as a result of its inability to properly work with documents - for which its keypad and medium resolution screen are to blame. Poor synchronization capabilities further worsen matters, yet there is no denying that the N70 hosts excellent document viewing software, as well as rock-solid connectivity, good battery life, the ability to easily expand memory and a 2 Megapixel camera which delivers impressive results. Add an adequate brower, and you have yourself a decent 3G phone. Release: October 2005. Price: $430.

Features :
The Nokia N70 (Model N70-1) is one of the handsets in Nokia's Nseries lineup of smart phones. It is equipped with a 2 megapixel camera with built-in flash, a front VGA camera to allow video calling, FM radio, Bluetooth, digital music player functionality, and support for 3D Symbian, Java games and other S60 2nd Edition software.

At the time of its launch, the N70 had the most built-in memory alongside its system memory and was the penultimate (before the related N72) Symbian OS 8.x device released by Nokia, since the introduction of their new OS9 platform released in 2003 which offers more flexibility than the original that was made in 1998 and upgraded from then on.

Phone's front side is eye catching thanks to a plate with metal outlook. It is made of plastic and catches fingerprints even though it is not entirely glossy. Fingerprints reign on the display too. Nokia seems to be fully aware of this disadvantage, because they have prepared a special cloth to go with the phone.
In the upper left corner of the phone there is a sensor, which regulates the backlighting of the display and the keypad. I really wish Nokia had added a switch-off option for the backlighting, but my expectations were in vain. I just don't find it practical that the keypad beams in a rather disordered manner. On top of it, in the user manual, Nokia states that the display and the keypad may sometimes blink as a side effect. To me though, if nothing else, a possible switch-off function would have saved energy.
