Nokia 8800 Arte – For Show and no Go!

Well, I have to tell you the truth now. The truth? I did get to test all the Nokia 8800 series at the Nokia booth couple weeks ago at Web 2.0 Expo 2008.

The reason why I didn’t post my pics or videos is partly I didn’t have time to and also because the web browsers on the new Nokia are so horrible. They are not even recommended for any kind of web browsing as most sites will break.

However, I did find Nokia E90 had a great browser. Nokia needs to put that browser on their new phones.

I think all cellphone manufacturers should at least have a phone that lives up to the iPhone standards.

iPhone’s Safari supports Javascript, AJAX, and CSS among many other things Windows Mobile and Opera Mobile doesn’t support.

Now, if we can just get some WiMax to come through, that’d make perfect combo.

My suggestion? If you don’t care about the internet browsing capability, the Nokia looks great and you can get one but for me, it’s really “for show and no go” if the browser isn’t up to iPhone standards.

    No thank you. My two year old Nokia is still going strong and serves all my needs. It is unfortunate that Nokia makes such sturdy handsets!

    Lol…unlike me, I did throw out a cellphone out the window once…changed cellphones 4-5 times in the last 2 years although I have been using my Blackberry 8830 for about 6 months now, longest ever…
