Even though today was mostly an office day, and the Nokia E62 didn’t get used as much, I still managed to take it with me to a lunch meeting, and do some e-mails and Web browsing on the way.
Browsing the Web with the Nokia E62
Viewing attachments on the Nokia E62
When I got an e-mail with an attachment, and tried to open the attachment which happened to be an Excel workbook, I got a warning message indicating that the workbook contains some unknown data type.
Technical support call coming soon
It seems that some further optimization of the browser and e-mail settings is needed, and this will be the topic of a technical support call soon. This will be the first technical support call to Cingular regarding the Nokia E62.
Impressions so far
It is too early to make any conclusions yet but so far the Nokia E62 reminds me of the Treo 700w when it comes to the “few extra steps” needed to perform certain functions (see the steps involved in creating and saving a document on day #60--October 12, 2006) and of the T-Mobile MDA when it comes to being a little slow and not as responsive (the extra second or two it takes to move between applications and during text entry).
On the more positive side, the interface consisting the joystick and the shortcuts keys that are close by are straightforward and easy to use (see the user interface pictures and description on day #59--October 11, 2006). In addition, the Nokia E62 offers a rich set of applications which we will be getting into in more details in the next few days.
