Nokia N97 Prepaid Mobile Phone - Review

prepaid mobile phone

The latest buzz in mobile phones industry would be the so-called Nokia N97 which is expected to be launched anytime from this post is created. Nokia company has recently unveiled this new mobile-computer phone I can’t help myself but I want to share my view on the mobile phone too with you guys. Before we go any further into our discussion, let’s read the news first before we go deeper into the mobile phone itself. This one is actually extracted from Business Standard news. If this is true and if the mobile phone ever reach the United States market, I guess other mobile phones like i-Phone from Apple and T-Mobile from Research in Motion (RIM) would have to face the greatest challenge ever from Nokia since the phone is said to have embedded outstanding features from both mobile phones. Read on.

Nokia, the world's largest cellular phone maker, today said it expects the internet to drive sales in the next round of global mobile revolution and launched a high-end smart phone N97 and a few Web-based services, including maps and messaging, under the umbrella brand Ovi.

"We will redefine the internet and bring it to the masses. As much as 75 per cent of the world's population has not used the e-mail. Many of these people will have their first e-mail experience on a mobile phone, not on a personal computer," Nokia President and CEO Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo said addressing the 14th Nokia World 2008 here.

"Mail on Ovi, together with Nokia messaging services, which offers consumers e-mail and instant messaging, brings mobile e-mail to everyone," he said.

Even with so much focus on internet, Nokia is not keen on any big-ticket acquisition to have a stronger presence.

Replying to a query if Nokia would make a bid for global internet company Yahoo!, Pekka said: "We will redefine the internet without making an attempt in that direction."

Kallasvuo while pointing out that no one can escape the current global financial crisis, however, declined to comment on the company's outlook.

Nokia N97, the latest N-series smart phone from the company, is priced at euro 550 (Rs 36,300). It will be available globally from April next year, he said.

When asked about the high price of N97 model, Pekka said Nokia's XpressMusic 5800 phone (Rs 20,000) was well received in India despite being a music-oriented phone.

Wow! Now how about we take a closer look at the N97 mobile phone images down here.

You know what I think is this is just one of Nokia’s smart marketing strategies where before it even launch the product, they leaks out few information to create the buzz first so the moment the product is available on the market, it will instantly become the bestseller. By the way this Nokia N97 high-end mobile phone has been officially announced at the annual Nokia World event in Barcelona, Spain. It is said to be available in Europe market by mid-2009.

Now the front part is slightly chubbier than iPhone probably because it houses the QWERTY keyboard. Since the day Nokia introduced its first touch-based model, they have been using their own operating system which is Symbian 9.5. As you all may have already known, all Nokia N-series mobile phones are packed with internal memory, processing power, multiple sensors and also connection speeds. This one is better since it has integrated A-GPS (assisted Global Positioning System) sensors as well as smart electronic compass. These are all useful utilities for those who has “second identity” in the internet world and also for those who love to share their social location. In short, friends can virtually be updated with real-time information of your where about.

Unlike its previous phone N96 which is a cutting-edge mobile phone, the Nokia N97 mobile phone is described as the world's most advanced mobile computer. This new mobile phone will not just trigger knee-jerk hysteria, but instead it should breed cool-headed excitement at the prospect of a new era of mobile experience. I can almost see the change in minds of our kids and even among us of what we want as a Christmas gift. Would it be iPhone or Nokia N97 mobile phone? It has been purported that the mobile phone or "mobile-computer" will be around 550 euros.

Let’s take a look into this Nokia N97 storage. It’s 48 Gigabytes my fellow friends! Now how massive is that. This includes 32 Gigabytes of on-board memory which can be expanded to 16 Gigabytes microSD memory card, mainly for music, videos, and other media. Just for your information, Sandisk had recently announced their 16 Gigabytes microSD memory card. From all these developments, I just cannot deny that one day mobile phone could be a trendy lifestyle. You can have almost everything you want on a mobile phone; name it from calling anyone, texting (SMS), listening to your favorite music and songs, watching video clips and movies, watching online television programs, online bookings, reading your favorite blogs, googling, taking high quality pictures, and so on.

The Nokia N97 mobile phone is also equipped with five megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics. If I ever happen to own this model, I believe I will just sell my digital camera which is only 3.0 megapixel. So I can just carry my mobile phone everywhere and take any picture I want. Hey I can even make money selling high resolution pictures! Now the Nokia N97 is said to have resolution of 16:9 DVD quality video capture and from what I read, the mobile phone supports Share on Ovi services for immediate sharing over HSDPA and WLAN.

Now who would want to buy a mobile phone during recession? Why would Nokia launched N97 during this time where most manufacturers are battling for attention in an increasingly competitive environment? I guess the answer is Nokia had carefully planned this launching and thorough judgement has been made to ensure its sale. From what I see, smartphone vendors and wireless carriers around the world have been revamping everything from the mobile phones look and feel to their software and hardware in a heated race to attract end users. In other words, I think Nokia is absolutely ready to grab its own share from the whole mobile phone market with this latest product.

The new N97 from Nokia is said to be shipped in the first half of 2009 and since it is built on the previous Nokia 5800’s features, it is going to mark the latest in a steady stream of N series devices that Nokia has been introducing into the US and European markets this year. Look at the screen, it’s a 3.5-inch widescreen display which can be personalized with widgets and quick icon access to social networking services. Just like the Nokia 5800, this new N97 mobile phone supports Nokia’s Music Store and also Adobe Flash. Flash? This is something that iPhone continues to lack!

In my humble opinion, Nokia is so far the leading mobile phone manufacturer in the world. It keeps on producing innovative and creative product and so far no one could actually deny that fact. Having said that, I am not against any other mobile phone as myself is not using Nokia mobile phone. I'm using local product mobile phone as my preferences are more to what a phone should do; call and SMS. If you are looking for a prepaid mobile phone that is packed with various functions, then this Nokia N97 could be your best option available.

Talking about prepaid mobile phone, a lot of users nowadays prefer to use this plan a lot more are considering on switching the mobile plan. From what I heard, many had also switched to other port like Digi. Well this is a good progress! As a user of prepaid mobile phone myself, I love to see what's next as now we have more and more options and most of them are towards benefiting us from using it. Though last time I used to think to switch to post-paid plan, I kept myself analyzing the advantages and the cons to it. And I've come to a conclusion that prepaid mobile phone plan would be my choice until now. Perhaps until some phone carriers start to promote or introduce a standard contract-based plan that is better in service and have more value-added services.

Let's go back at what I wrote last time in my recent posts such as how to call india from your prepaid mobile phones. I have told you in the post how many people from India country have come and work here in Malaysia. What I'm going to say here might surprise you guys. Do you know that our community here that are using prepaid mobile phones are too small compared to what they have there at India? Yes I read somewhere that everyday thousands if not ten thousands people in India registered themselves to use prepaid mobile phones! This is perhaps another one good reason why you should switch to prepaid plan. That figure itself is and indicator that people prefer to use prepaid mobile phones.

Well maybe some would say that the prepaid mobile phone plan is only suitable for those with low income. I beg to differ though because I know a lot of rich people chose to use prepaid mobile phone plan as the plans are far more conceivable for them in terms of saving money. Like I told you before, using prepaid mobile phone plan means you are the king. You control everything. You have the choice not to top up your phone whenever you do not feel like it. You also have the choice to activate as many value-added services as you want. You will also have the chance to subscribe to anything that is offered by the particular phone service provider.

There is one thing that I don't fancy much about one of the prepaid mobile phone service providers available in Malaysia. I hate it each time I received promotion or any kind of gift sent through SMS. I just don't like it. Just like email spam, I hate seeing the message all over my SMS inbox. I tend to delete them each time I receive the SMS. Yes maybe some of them are good for us if we want to purchase or subscribe but most of the time are just promotion on caller ringtones. Why would I want to be reminded about where to go and purchase ABBA ringtones? And unfortunately there is no where in the message that tells us how we can opt not to receive that kind of promotion.

Ah just forget about that. Maybe the prepaid mobile phone provider had actually put that somewhere in any clause in their terms and conditions the day I subscribed to the plan. But I have to agree that prepaid mobile phone is really is a lucrative business. People subscribe to the prepaid mobile phone plan, people purchase ringtones and caller ringtones, people activated all kinds of value-added services like "Teman 20" or "Maxis Active10", people sharing their credit or airtime, and so on. If I were the provider, I'll do the same thing lol. What drives all this services to keep on being improvised is always money.

Let's talk about t-mobile prepaid mobile plan. Last time I talked about how to switch your t-mobile phone and retain your prepaid plan. In the future I will make a post about the latest development in T-Mobile G1 Android which has integrated Google nicely into it. It seems like this year looks set to be a vintage one for sophisticated hand-held devices and smartphones, with Nokia and Google/T-1 seeking to challenge Apple's iPhone and the fast-growing BlackBerry range. I have also read somewhere about the t mobile sidekick mobile phone. I'm still doing some research on it before I can actually post something useful for you guys.

I do have something that I want to confess here. In the future I will try to restrain myself from making any kind of Mymode prepaid promotion. I have far more important thing to do apart from selling prepaid cards and making money from it. I'm not saying that I'm not anymore selling it, it just that I have a new mission now in making money online and I believe I can actually make a lot of money from it. I will share my experience in the future.

I have something else that I want to share here. Recently I came across a magazine. I thought it's just another cheap-in-quality mobile phone magazine. But when i went through it, I have to say that it's a good magazine. It's called Mobile World. I will make a post about this magazine in the future due to the fact that it's a good resource for all of us. Though it's a Malaysian mobile phone magazine, still it is a good resource for anyone around the world. No, I didn't make any money from promoting this magazine, it's just that I feel it's good to share something that is worth reading it. Value for money, value for knowledge.

In short, counting down to 2009 would be an interesting thing to do for me as more and more new mobile phones are coming along the way. The competition is tighter than ever and I just can't imagine what else would come in the near future. If last time we used to think that iPhone is the pinnacle of mobile phone industry, now we know that there is a lot more coming. More for us actually. Now before I stop here, let's take a look at one of the first telephone created about 112 years ago and this one is from Sweden. Telephone? Yes they called it telephone...;-)

Can you make money from using Maxis Hotlink prepaid?

If you are a long time user of Hotlink, then I believe you have more than the knowledge on how Maxis charges you for anything and everything. Why waste the money for things you do not really need when you can actually earn money from it? You may not be as rich as Ananda Krishnan, the owner of Maxis Malaysia, but at least you can earn some money from all the telcos though you stick with Maxis Hotlink.

What if I use Celcom Xpax?

I know that sometimes you don't have the courage to try switching from one service to another. You might say that you are not sure about the advantages of other phone plans or network. Frankly say, that unsure feeling is just something you developed inside you due to successful marketing strategy from Celcom. Either using Celcom Xpax or Blue, it won't matter and you don't have to worry much if you plan to switch to Hotlink or Digi. Remember, at this time the cost to change or transfer is still free and therefore take advantage of that. Change and try it for a month and then you can always change back to your original provider. However, as far as money is concern, go for package that offers you lower call rates and that will absolutely help you to earn more money when you join Mymode.
