The Mighty Mini

Soo, around 2 weeks ago I received myself an N97 mini from WOM Nokia for trial and review!
Right now the trial period is done and I'm sharing you guys this review :)
Here's a video recording I did from the camera phone below :

So my verdict of the N97 mini is quite good ! I was highly surprised that the touch screen was very finger friendly (a nokia 7100 touchscreen was so not friendly). Now my mind really changed about the new generation of touchscreens. Plus I could type with my long nails :)

Check out the tiny size as well ! I was actually looking for a deck of cards to compare it with, but i couldnt find one.. so i guess a retro floppy disk would do . or not ?
size comparison
ps* i cant believe these big discs can only hold 1.44MB of stuff ?1 tiny memory cards hold like 8GB nowadays.. technology moves faster than the amount of time you blink !

Another thing I like is the camera. As a camera whore, the 5.4 MP Carl Seizz lense camera is superb ! The respond is also pretty quick which gives me good shots of candid stuff. I also like the high amount of camera settings available (eg ISO, contrast, color mode,etc) so that I could get the best shots.

and that's a macro mode without flash..

Next is the internet service. The sim card I put into this phone was actually not working. So I had to use the wifi to get connected. And from that, I learned the wifi connection is the BEST I've ever tried on a mobile device (eg . BlackBerry Bold+Onyx, iTouch). It connects to the wifi server extra fast and the internet browsing is fast as well.

One bonus : I can finally reply embed under post blogger comment forms on this N97 mini ! I can never do this on my blackberry. That would be very helpful if I need to do blog work during my traffic hours in the car.

So that's all I have for the review !

Next I'd like to share you guys some more nice news :)
firstly, I got a LOOK10 Best Selection Award ! Check out my feature here..
and second.. A while ago I got contacted my Style Sample magazine for a contribution article on "Style in My City". Obviously I wrote about Jakarta ! Anyhow, please have a look at the article I wrote in the online zine ! I'm really grateful for the contribution work ! Especially that the deadline given was super tight and I somehow managed to take the time to write this up during my mid-terms .. I can't describe how happy I am for this article :D
