It is the weekend after all, and some golfing is in order. This is not an outdoor golf course though (see picture on left), it is the golf course on the Nokia E62. For those golf addicts on the go, the Golf Pro 2 on the Nokia E62 comes to the rescue.
Resetting the Nokia E62
I had to reset the device today. It seems that after yesterday’s browser error and attachment error, e-mail was no longer responsive. Resetting the device seems to have done the trick and the Nokia E62 is back to normal. The Nokia E62 is not the only device that I had to reset during the 81-day-experiment so far. I had to do this with the Treo 700p and the T-Mobile MDA.
The Nokia E62 Applications
In addition to the standard applications (Phone, E-mail, Address Book, Calendar, and Notes) and the office applications (Documents, Sheets, and Presentations applications, which allow you to view and edit documents, spreadsheets, and presentations that are compatible with Microsoft Office) the Nokia E62 comes with a number of additional applications. These include the Recorder (voice recorder), the File Manager, Instant Messenger, Music Player, Real Player, Flash Player, and many others. Today, I got the opportunity to use the Voice Recorder.
Today, I used the Nokia E62 Recorder application to record a voice note and e-mail it. I was surprised with the quality of the recording (it was higher than what you would expect from a smartphone). I have recorded voice notes with some of the previous devices in the 81-day-experiment, but I don’t remember getting such a high quality sound.
The Recorder comes in handy when you are in crowded place and it is difficult to “type” a message or a note, or when you are in motion (walking or driving).
On the topic of driving, I talked about “driver friendly smartphones” when I was using the BlackBerry Pearl. If you’re interested in more insights relating to this topic, you can refer to Day #35 on September 17, 2006. And if you’re interested in learning more about the dangers of driving and typing, you can refer to the recent article titled “Danger: Drivers who type” by Kimra McPherson, from the Mercury News, which was posted on October 11, 2006 at: http://www.mercurynews.com/mld/mercurynews/15729444.htm (The full article will be available on the Web for a limited time).
