Nokia E61i finally got my new wi-fi phone

Its almost been 2 years with my Nokia 6630, so I decided to go for a upgrade this time.

Nokia E61i is a phone which meets most of my requirements which are as follows

  • slim form factor
  • plenty of connectivity options – Wi-fi, Bluetooth, IR, GPRS , EDGE , 3G ( which is not coming to India anytime soon :( )
  • long lasting battery
  • large screen
  • Symbian OS
  • email and browsing support

Sad points

  • I don’t mind the 2Megapixel Camera which is not as good as the Sony Ericsson phones.
  • Bluetooth is still version 1.2 and lacks stereo support.
  • Audio output in earphones is mono. Lacks a headphone/headset jack.
  • Memory card is not hot swappable.

But on the whole , I am happy to have got this phone . Much better than the 6630 in many ways. After all it’s only a day old.

Desktop Blogging with Windows Live Writer

Windows Live Writer is a really cool tool from Microsoft that lets you blog from your desktop. I have been very lazy to update my blog for the following reasons

  • I have my blog open inside a browser tab in the middle of many other tabs, when I come across something interesting on some other site, I just don’t feel like updating my blog.
  • I decided to give Desktop blogging a shot

Lets see how it goes. Windows Live Writer looks really a good blogging client.
