View Full Version : Nokia 9500 arrives in London; initial thoughts

Like many of you no doubt, I received my Nokia 9500 this morning from Expansys (I'd pre-ordered it in April!). I also saw several in Tottenham Court Road this afternoon.

I'm impressed with what I've seen of the phone initially: transferring all my contacts (2000 of them), messages, files etc was a breeze using IR, and I'm particularly pleased with the phone reception & earpiece etc - there's a 'dead' area close to my house where the 9210i goes down, but not the 9500.

Wi-Fi is _amazing_: my home network was recognised instantly, & browsing the web is a breeze.

Also, the keyboard is, imho, _much_ better than the 9210i - good tactility & travel, & much faster when you get used to the differently laid out punctuation marks etc.

10/10 so far...
