“This seems to be the only 'smartphone' with a keyboard...”

Written on: 17/02/2003 by Robert H Halfon. (1 review written)

Good Points
Nokia 9210i Review. Receiving email with attachments is excellent although the attachments cannot be over one megabyte. The Internet pages are excellent and I use an Orange Sim card via HSCSD to get a fairly fast connection. The fax facility is extremely useful, particularly being able to receive faxes on the move.

Bad Points
The machine only has around 16MGB of internal memory which goes down to about 11 once the internal software (i.e. word etc)is added. There is no vibrate option on the phone. There is no GPRS capability.

General Comments
This seems to be the only 'smartphone' with a keyboard around at present and it does an excellent job. To be able to look at internet and receive email attachments on the move is great and the keyboard enables you to write long replies. The office software like word etc is extremely useful. The fax facility is also very helpful as you can also receive faxes.
The software is on the whole stable although I have had to download programmes from the Nokia website to reinstall when I have had a problem. All in all this is a very useful machine, because it has a keyboard and I can do everything on the move - faxing, email, type docs etc.
Nevertheless, the machine needs a much bigger internal memory (at least 64mgb) and an ability to plug in compact flash cards so as to really boost its potential.
