This is the second time I’ve written this post. The first time I explained how beautiful the phone is, lovely responsive touchscreen, fantastic camera, good touches like the onscreen keyboard appearing as soon as you rotate the phone.
Then I complained about the software. Explained how this fabulous bit of kit is let down by a buggy, user unfriendly operating system and shoddily coded badly tested apps on topic of it. I finished with a joke, suggesting that this could be the phone for Sheldon from the Big Bang Theory, and wondering if anyone else could bring to mind the episode and quote that made me think that.
I then went on to be clever. I tried to hyperlink a word in the post, I wanted to link to Threeuk who sent me the phone to try. And I managed to select the required text and I hit the link option but I didn’t enter a title. Big mistake. Huge. Because then I got an error message telling me that title is not optional, crucially without and ok cancel option. Which meant I lost the post and any semblance of good humour.
I’m not convinced that mobile Windows is the way forward for nokia. I think it’s a crying shame that a company that can produce hardware like this are floundering so badly when it comes to the software. I really hope they can get their act together though I’d hate to lose the chance of seeing what comes after this.
