Another positive E75 data point

Infamous tech news site The Register has been taking a look at the new Nokia E75, concluding that "It's a beautifully compact do-it-all smart phone with slimline Qwerty keyboard. Could this be the end of the Communicator?" The Register's closing para on the E75 was: "But with good email and browser services, document creation and viewing, a decent camera and music player, aGPS and N-Gage games, plus access to loads of additional Symbian apps, this all adds up to a very powerful phone both for work and in-between jobs." Rafe and Ewan now both have E75s and our own coverage of this qwerty newcomer is imminent.

Read on in the full article.

I didn't think we'd see the day where El Reg sees N-Gage compatibility as a positive selling point. :-)

Dave Oliver seems like a well-balanced reviewer when you look back at his other stuff. Bill Ray is also, after a slightly shaky "paradigm-shifting" patch, pretty informative and well-balanced. The only one now that I try to avoid is Orlowski: he's the worst kind of rabble-rousing troll, who will say anything controversial or inaccurate just to sell copy.

I used to like Orlowski, his scepticism about much-praised technologies was often well placed, especially when everyone else was "drinking the koolaid". But he seems to have become a caricature of himself, and as neilhoskins says, he's now pretty much a troll rather than a polemicist.

Polemicist is a term that trolls often try to hide behind, to pretend they're doing something positive and useful to society.

For all Ewan tries to convince us that he's considering a 5800 as his next phone, he couldn't hide the gleam in his eye when he flashed this little puppy on the videocasts.

Probably just April Fool's.

Tomorrow you'd see it switch back to it's belittling of NGage.
