S60 the smart-phone user interface, we have all used it; sometimes we loved it and other times it let us down. But, the true fact is that S60 which sits atop the Symbian operating system is one of the most powerful and user friendly user interfaces available for any smart-phone. The other interfaces like UIQ and Windows Mobile cater to PDAs rather smartphones. PDAs (Personal Digital Assistants) are devices with which are data-centered and have telephony as an add-on while smartphones are more telephony-centered with data related features being add-ons.

The N95 has been out for almost 5 months now. The price has fallen considerably from somewhere around 650€ to about 490€ nowadays, sim-free in India.

I have always thought that a black N95 would be awesome, however the styling on the Nokia N95 8GB has disappointed me a little. I don’t really like the smaller Menu & Multimedia keys and the lack of cover for the camera. For those (including me) who only want it to be black yet with the same shape here is a solution. The phone looks great, but protruding silver at places completely mars it at times. I’m hoping for an all black housing soon, specially the keypad!

I got tagged by Symbian60.mobi, which is a German blog, as part of a blogger’s game. This one is about naming 5 blogs one reads and each one has to be from a different country then the people who’re tagged, tag others! I was tagged on the 19th but got a little stuck with the translators, anyway here goes:
– Name 5 blogs in different countries that you read
– Tag 5 bloggers
Blogs I read:
– Jan van Iperen‘s Nokia N95 Blog (Netherlands)
– Mark Guim‘s The Nokia Blog (USA)
– Michael Hell‘s The Nokian Blog (Austria)
– Stefan Constantinescu on IntoMobile (Finland)
– Teo’s Symbian-Freak (Croatia)
I sure did want to add more, specially Symbian-Guru, however those were the five blogs that first came to my mind.
