It was a very short and simple gathering – visit, eat, and listen to the Nokia reps as they share to use the new Nokia E-mail and also introduce the new E75 phone.
Apparently Nokia calls it “Nokia Messaging“, and here’s an excerpt from the site.
Up to 10 email addresses:
You can access up to 10 of your personal email accounts.
Each email arrives in its own mailbox, and you can access all emails in one place.
Nokia Messaging supports thousands of leading global and local email providers.
I think that pretty much sum it up. Basically it’s an application that runs on the Nokia’s S60 platform (unfortunately not for the S60 of my N81 8GB) and what it does is that it acts as the middle person to retrieve your E-mails from whatever you set (eg Yahoo!, Gmail, Hotmail, your office E-mail, your ISP E-mail, yada yada yada…….) so that you could communicate via your phone as you’re on the go.
The event was held at Saffron Mediterranean Bistro, Solaris Mon’t Kiara – it was about 2 weeks ago.
Very simple gathering. Sit, Eat, Talk, Listen. 🙂
An interesting concept but not something that’s useful to everyone unless your E-mail usage is intensive and critical. Personally I like my E-mails to have a record, not on a phone.
As for the E75 – it’s a nice phone. I like that it could actually output the display on your computer screen. 🙂 The keyboard seems handy, the unit overall looks sleek. I didn’t like that I still have to use that central cursor and there’s still no way to highlight a series of text for copy and paste purpose.
(*warning I have a back log of “goldfries at” articles to post so you’ll see quite a bunch of it this week. 😛 sorry for that.)
