Blackberry Kepler 9300 in Pakistan Soon

For all Blackberry enthusiasts who were waiting for the Blackberry Torch to appear in Pakistan, considering its high price and some browser issues; unfortunately looks like it will not be appearing in Pakistan officially. However, if you have the money, you can buy it off the market.

But for those, like me, who use a Blackberry device and are looking for an affordable upgrade, a new Blackberry handset will be appearing officially in Pakistan in the next two to three months.

This handset is a successor to the ever-reliable and affordable Curve 8500 series, and the last variant of Curve to hit our market was the Blackberry Gemini 8520, available in the market and with cellular operators for about 22,000/- to 25.000/- PKR.

As is the norm with all new Blackberry handsets, the Kepler will feature a trackpad instead of the traditional trackball (which used to get dirty and had a lot of issues).

The basic layout for the handset is the same as the Gemini, and fits snugly in the hand. Some cosmetic differences will be the chrome lining on the edge of the handsets and a better keypad.

Another upgrade is the Wi-Fi option, which is really useful considering almost everyone is using wireless internet at home, and it is also available at cafes, airports as well as other landmarks.

The operating system in use will be the latest 5.0 upgradeable (hopefully we will get it with the latest OS). Another upgrade will be the onboard RAM which will be 256 MB, instead of 128 MB. All other features such as layout, buttons, standard multimedia options and shortcut keys will be same with the screen size being 320 x 240 pixels (TFT 65K colors).

The camera in the handset will be a standard 2.0 MP which may put off camera fans and there won’t be a flash. Battery time will be around 4 – 5 hours during talk time and upto 350 hours to 450 hours during standby (expected).

The Blackberry Kepler is a traditional business handset (boring yet efficient) more suited for professionals, who want an affordable device (not recommended for multimedia and iphone enthusiasts). It is expected to be priced between Gemini (8520) and Javelin (8900), the price is to range between 28,000/- to 32,000/- PKR. In this price range, I say it is a good option, unfortunately no memory card is expected in the package.

Nokia 5800 Xpress Music Sleek Smartphone Review Pictures

 A New Nokia 5800 XpressMusic was one smartphone that the masses wanted their hands on. On January 23rd, it finally went on sale and it blew the markets off their feet in a record time. This attention seeking phone was the first S60 5th edition touch control phone and therefore, the arrival created a gigantic hype in the market even before it’s released.

clip image001 thumb Nokia 5800 Xpress Music Review: Sleek Smartphone

The Design

  • The phone has a few sweeping controls and you can move through the song list but if you are expecting some iphone treatment, you should hold your chain of thought right here, right now!  You can get this phone with a stylus with it so if you are new to the touch control, you will get all the help you can get.
  • Even the design of this phone is satisfying as it is a quality phone with a smart look to it. It’s like you have everything on your fingertips – literally! You can even download numerous applications in your 5800 and enjoy all the way! Applications that are already included are the camera, internet browsing, dictionary, and calculator.

clip image002 thumb Nokia 5800 Xpress Music Review: Sleek Smartphone

Usability

  • The text entry of this phone is normal as long as you are getting used to the phone because the keys are small but the right size and whenever you hit a key, the phone vibrates in response. However, whenever you log in any kind of entry, you need to take your finger off the phone in order for it to register that you have actually touched a key. Don’t expect to type fast if you want to be an expert, be calm and patient with this baby!

Camera:

  • The phone comes with a 3.2 megapixel camera that has an autofocus facility inbuilt. In addition to this it has a dual-LED flash which makes it a decent camera to use and appreciate. You can even record a VGA video recording at 30 fps. Other delightful option that may want to make you buy this phone is that it supports the Wi-Fi system so the internet is easily accessible anywhere. Below are some of the high definition images, which clearly explain the limits of this camera.

Storage and Multimedia Qualities:

  • You even get an 8GB card for this phone and a memory expansion that can store all of your required pictures, music and documents, however, it’s nothing compared to Nokia X6 Review which comes with 32 GB storage and specifically targets the music fans. A Bluetooth and USB 2.0 version is also included in this package and the audio quality of this phone is the best you could want. Coming at a very affordable price, this is also an office document viewer.
  • However, it has a build quality and it may be considered too big for those who have small hands. The camera does not come with a flash and the video recording is not of the highest quality and even the touch screen quality is not the best. The image of the camera is also not perfect for a 3.2 MP.
  • This phone is a good one for those who have not experienced the iphone because after all, it is a touch screen and as more technology takes over our lives, the more we want of it and this is the phone that knows it.
  • It allows you to store wallpapers, games and most importantly themes to your mobiles, you can feel free to download and install themes seamlessly in your handset, all these new themes make the handset give a great feel.

clip image010 Nokia 5800 Xpress Music Review: Sleek Smartphone

Power Management:

5800 Xpress music comes with a Standard battery, Li-Ion 1200 to 1320 mAh(BL-5J), it has an impressive stand by time on both 2G and 3G networks, if you are a 2g customer, you can expect to have about 406 hours stand by time, 3G network customers get the same amount of standby time. Now the most important aspect of the battery, which is its performance while its being consumed, on 3G sets, you can use it continuously for up to 5 hours, however, 2G customers will get an edge on it as it gives a talk time of about 8 hours.

clip image011 thumb Nokia 5800 Xpress Music Review: Sleek Smartphone

Price and Conclusion:

The features which can be qualified as Nokia 5800 XpressMusic’s strengths are its sleek look, a better looking design with a sharp touch screen. Even though the camera is not outstanding to current standards, but it still does the job amazingly, the 3.2 megapixel camera is one of its key feature. Other important features include Wi-Fi, 2G – 3G support and Bluetooth.

However, the weaker user interface needs some more work, there needs to be improvements on its navigation and input methods. As far as the price is concerned, it is readily available in the market for the price of $251 USD which is about 21,000 PKR, rate varies from region to region and retailers, Check Mobilephones.pk for up to date prices.

HTC Desire In Pakistan Reviews Features Price and Availability

HTC is very well known for quality handsets or rather in some cases I would call them premium quality handsets. Over here in Pakistan owning a smartphone for some might be a no brainer in many cases but for all those tech geeks out there, the HTC Desire is a smartphone worth giving a shot to.

HTC-Desire-1

Video Demos and Features

Please don’t consider the 3G aspects of the phone since all networks here in Pakistan are based on 2.5G/EDGE. However, networks here may shift to 3G anytime soon, but it should be considered a far off unconfirmed rumor for now.

From the specs of the HTC Desire you can safely say that this is in deed a tech savvy person’s heaven! From a high resolution AMOLED Display to Google’s very own Andorid OS to fully customizable homescreens and widgets with complete social network integration, it’s a match made in heaven.

But the downside of this phone is that if you want to use it to it’s full potential, you should have a good internet plan for the month, the HTC Desire is data hungry if you’re using all it’s features like Facebook integration, Twitter or syncing your E-mail inboxes regularly.

Our best bet is that you stick with Zong, they have really convenient and very economical internet packages for everyone, prepaid and postpaid both.

Or you can stick to Telenor’s Persona Postpaid package, their nationwide EDGE/GPRS connectivity is phenomenal.

Pricing and Availability

If you do some research in the market, the Desire can be purchased for a price in between RS. 45,000 to 52,000 all over Pakistan.

HTC handsets are hard to come by if you’re just looking for them in regular shops, and none of them offer warranty for HTC phones even if they carry it by any chance, but here’s the best way to get an HTC Desire with warranty; head over to Brightex’s website by clicking this link,  who are the official HTC handset distributors in Pakistan, they have the HTC Desire for a fair price of RS. 49,000.

Why did I say fair price? Because it comes with a complete one year warranty! If something does go wrong with the phone, at least you’ll have someone to go to.

Or the second option is that you head over to HomeShopping.pk and buy the HTC Desire for a price of RS. 44,990. You’ll save some money but at the same time you will only get software warranty, it’s totally up to you to decide where do you wanna head over to for your brand new HTC Desire.

Conlusion

Hunting down for smartphones is a tough job, many different companies are coming out with smartphones like crazy, most notably Nokia.

There is so much to choose from that you end up buying something which might not completely suit your needs, but the HTC Desire is a complete powerhouse and represents what a smartphone should be, staying connected with your social networks and your friends and family members doesn’t get easier than what the HTC Desire has to offer.

Its a highly recommend device if you’re a person who wants each and every bit of his digital life in his pocket. For more information on the HTC Desire, go to HTC’s website by clicking this link.
