This Nokia communicator is tremendously suitable for them who need to work everywhere, but even so, this communicator never lose its elegance to be held everywhere you go. I personally like its shape. You might think it will be a waste of time to hold this big phone and should at once open the slide to use the PDA side to simply write a simple "ok" to reply an sms or even merely make a call. Using this phone is practically easy and simple. If you are in a hurry and really need to text or make a call, you don't need to open the slide. Use the front side of the phone when slide is closed. It works like a usual phone, with usual keypad to use. I so much like this idea anyway. What else can we do besides texting on SMS and make a call?. Of course you can do anything else like reading a coming email, but to reply you need to open the slide. The system is different from the former communicator which is much alike ; 9210, but in some aspects, they are alike though.
Here I tell you the pluses and minuses based on my experience using this mini-PC phone :
Let me begin with the pluses. I really like the keypad of the PDA side. It is so much like the keyboard of my PC which facilitate me to write a long document with plenty characters so easily. When I got this communicator, I was not old enough to have a work, like, the real work. I was just a student when the first time I had it. But I used this phone to write my story, so everytime and everywhere I got a sudden inspiration, I wrote it down into a story right away. So I thanked this communicator which enable me to save documents on which thousands characters are written. If you think the keypads are just adjacent that is hard to use, it is surprisingly not. I feel comfortable typing down my stories, I could pass most of times away to write my stories down.
Another plus is its memory. It has a 80 MB built-in memory which provide me such a big space to save everything from words documents, photos, or musics. It is supported with additional memory with MultiMediaCard (MMC). You can save every single files in your phone and what will happen if you forget in which folder you saved a file when you try to find it?. Don't be afraid because it works definitely like a computer. Just type the file name down, wait a moment and let this little one search the file. I am able to say that this communicator is comfortably compatible with computer.
I like to reach the hotspot area with my phone. Everytime I recommend a place to have a lunch or dinner, I will prefer places which provide WiFi, because I can have fun with my phone. It catches a very good connection that you will not see the 'loading' line moves so slowly. I only needed approximately 1 minute to open one website. Besides it has a very progressive web browser that make you comfortable to browse. It is supported with WiFi, EDGE, and bluetooth. It really ease you to do everything.
This is the first communicator with an integrated camera. I always love its remarkable functions and I love it much more because I can capture everything, even the camera is not that good.
Now move to the minuses. As long as I used this phone, I could hardly find the minuses, well, there are some, but I think they are not that big. First, due to its size, sometimes I couldn't decide to put it in my pocket, especially when I used a very tight jeans. I prefered to put it in my bag and felt troubled when it rang because I had to search for it in my bag, and when I finally found it, it had stopped ringing. Another minus is that this phone doesn't vibrate when calls or texts come. If I was constrained to put it deep in my bag because I was not able to put it in my pocket, and I forgot to turn the volume into the highest level, then it will be so possible to have more than 20 missed calls or 35 messages unread for I couldn't notice anything.
But if you decide to own this communicator, you have to promise yourself up front to take a really good care of it. I think I didn't, because now I have its screen almost detached due to the fact that I always have the screen widely opened.
But really, if you take a really good care of it, you will enjoy each extraordinary experiences using it. This NOKIA 9500i is just worth the price you pay.
