by Chip

Nokia E51

It you are an executive in the market for a suitable cell phone, Nokia's E series offers the best bang for the buck. The Nokia E51 is the latest from the venerable E series, and an apt successor to the hugely popular E50 model, which it will eventually replace. The E51 brings in new features at a price that's hard to beat.

The keypad is completely revised, with dedicated keys for Contacts, Calendar,E-mail and Home. The soft menu keys, however, are too small for comfort. The rest of the keypad is a delight-good tactile feedback, and key spacing is immaculate. The rubberised keys for volume up / down, push-to-talk and power are hard to operate, though.Nokia cell phones have nokia mobile software on various purposes .Like n73 mobile themes, nokia E 51 also have cool themes available online.

Features of E51:

The E51 feels peppy--it uses the same processor as on the flagship N95. With 130 MB of memory on board, you can do a lot of multitasking without the phone getting sluggish, and the memory can be expanded to 4 GB via the microSD slot (a 512 MB card comes bundled). The E51 runs on Symbian OS Series 60, and crams in lot of features besides the standard set. Most of these will go down well with executives--for example, the Advance call manager lets you manage incoming and outgoing calls efficiently. In addition, WorldMate, an application for frequent fliers, comes bundled.The E51 is a 3G, quad-band phone with HSDPA, Wi-Fi (802.11g), Bluetooth, Micro USB and an infrared port. There's a switch to turn Bluetooth on and off on the main keypad. Multimedia features include a good MP3 player, a 2MP camera with still and video shooting, and I'M radio.The phone supports various mobile themes.

Signal reception is good. as is voice clarity. Internet browsing speeds are faster than with the E50 or E61, thanks to the revised Web browser. The camera is above average, but loses performance in low-light conditions. The speakerphone is clear, with little or no echo on the recipient's side. We got around three days of batten-life with nominal usage and a terrific seven days of standby time.

Bleu 555x

The Bleu 555x is one new entrant in the cellphone market from the popular computer peripheral brand. Let's take a look at what it offers.

The 555x is a candy bar phone with a shiny front that is coated with transparent plastic which adds its own reflectivity to the phone's body. The keypad layout is simple and quite comfortable to use. There are the usual number keys, with a 5-way navigation pad and two soft keys on the side. Additionally there are volume control buttons on the right edge of the phone with a media key right under it. This media key launches the media player in standby mode and works as the shutter button in the camera application- Under these buttons is a port flap that reveals a connectivity port for the headset, and usb cable. The left edge of the phone has a micro SD slot that is covered with a rubber flap, and a slider to unlock the rear panel of the phone.

Features of Bleu 555x

The 555x has dual-band support with 900 and 1800 MHz networks. The rear of the phone features a 1.3 MP camera that has a portrait mirror and takes decent pictures. The camera application has controls for White balance, Exposure compensation, and supports burst mode.

The phone has a simple grid-based menu layout which supports the use of number keys as shortcuts to select options. The connectivity menu allows the user to switch Bluetooth on and off -- we'd like to mention here that the phone supports A2DP and thus can use stereo Bluetooth headsets for conversations or listening to music. Further in the 'Extras' menu there is a Planner App, a Perpetual Calendar, a voice recorder, photo editor, drawing board, calorie counter, world clock, currency and unit converter, and a stopwatch. There are the usual alarm features and a WAP browser that works well with EDGE support. The phone supports Java with the JWTI specification and the applications appear in the Java submenu in extras.

The phone features 60 MB of internal storage and the multimedia menu displays files stored in the phone and card memory; this also shows the amount of space used. However these files can not be opened from inside the media player, and have to be accessed from the multimedia file browser. The multimedia features of the phone also include the FM radio which can be scheduled to record transmissionsdirectly into the internal or external sttMJ in .Amr format.

Battery life is a decent 2 hours of talktime and 50 hours of standby intermittent use of multimedia feature i The package also includes an extra bad that can be used to double the uses of the phone.

The phone is a decent option albeit from a lesser known brand. -; j it does not skimp on features ana pre capabilities comparable to any other phi in its class.
