New link ***Mobile Phone***

Hi everyone, there's a new link I've added on my "d3xlabs supported mobile sites" on the right toolbar. Called "Mobile Phones".

Its an Australian Mobile website full of information on mobiles, plans, accessories and even ringtones. There's even a news section about useful stuff like "What to do with old mobiles" and "Choosing a mobile phone".

Its worth a visit! Just click the link above!

***New link created:***

I'm experimenting here.

A few friends have asked me to help advertise/sell their mobile phones on their behalf. Instead of SMS-ing everyone I know, I thought I'd try create an experimental blog for it.

Advertising these offers is not new for me. I've helped many a friend let go of their first loves. Its not difficult. "See a need, find the buyer". Someone out there is always looking for something within their budget. Not EVERYONE is willing to buy new I guess.

So here it is:
Whilst I'm debating about creating a logo link for it, I've placed the address discreetly on the sidebar under my MSN and email.

(And in case, you're wondering, I couldn't think of a more catchy name)

So far, there are 3 mobiles on offer. Check it out!

Beyond expectations

Surprising, yet, not surprising... The E71 is selling like hotcakes. Within a matter of couple of days, shops everywhere, including Incomm is sold out!

I've just helped a few friends book their units from Incomm, and just in time too, otherwise they'd never be able to get their hands on these smartphones.

Imagine, if white was available....

Sneak peek: My new Nokia E71

Its been a truly exciting past few weeks. Since my last post, I've been tracking numerous forums in the region about the release of the (ultimate) Nokia E71. I was quite settled in accepting that Nokia would only release it on 11July08 in Singapore, and probably in Brunei a week or so later. (THEN, I thought, I'd be the first to line up at Incomm to get it!)


A friend called me at 9.30pm on 29Jun08.

He had just bought one.
... from DeeJay.

My heart stopped. I was beaten to it.

Nevermind I thought, I'd still surely be the first to get one from Incomm then, when they release it. Needless to say, like an excited schoolboy, I went to meet my friend at close to midnight just to have a "feel" of the precious E71. All this time, just reading about it online, and there it was, in my friend's possession! It just made me more impatient to get it.

Then, the next morning, I received a call from my sources; Incomm had launched it! So, at 9.30am in the morning, thinking I'd SURELY be the first then to buy one from Incomm, I booked one and zoomed over immediately. But, as it turned out, a few others had beaten me to it already. Ah well.... at least I have it now.

Since that fateful day, I've been falling more and more in love with the E71. Using it for over a week now, it truly is a joy to use. So many worthwhile upgrades compared to the E61i. So many neat add-ons, so many reasons to love it.

I'm currently working on a in-depth review for all my readers, but in the meantime, here are some shots I've taken with my E71, and a few with an iPhone, just to show you the size and form factor. Enjoy!

So far, I have to add (without giving away what final rating I would usually add at the end of a review), this is arguably Nokia's best smartphone to date. In just two days, all stocks in Incomm were sold out, and from what I hear from other shops, the story's the same everywhere. That says it all doesn't it? So if you're one of the elite few to have bought one in the first few days of launch, consider yourself lucky!

Anyway, do watch out soon for my in-depth review, in my next post!

(I was supposed to review the Sony Ericsson G700 and G900, but the E71 was launched! Don't worry, SE lovers, it will come right after my E71 review)

The Nokia E71 is now available in Incomm at a retail price of BND728-00.
