Nokia and Symbian nostalgia in Phones Show 167

Published by at

All aboard the nostalgia train in Phones Show 167, as I look at my top 10 second hand smartphone bargains, with the Nokia X6, N86, E72, C7 and N82 all making the cut, along with some pertinent commentary. Even better, for real Symbian old timers, there's a look at the Ericsson R380, the first touchscreen smartphone in the world, a full seven years before the Apple iPhone and a full ten years before the N8!

Here's show 167 on the web and here it is embedded for your convenience:

From the show script:

"But at number 1, the second hand bargain of the moment in my eyes. The Nokia C7 might seem unassuming, being a late 2010 Symbian^3 smartphone with EDoF camera, but look closer.... replaceable battery, FM transmitter, decent oleophobic screen, full Near Field Communications functions - yes, really, the only device in this roundup to have NFC, and best of all, fully upgradeable to the very latest Nokia Belle version of Symbian and the very latest Nokia Maps Suite. Average second hand selling price: £90, which for a geek like you who’s happy to upgrade, to install stuff, makes it my top pick."
