Nokia N73: Nokia's famous N series open new door ways for the next generation multimedia cell phones. N73 is successor to N70, which already attracted large number of buyers since it was introduced first.
Nokia N73 has got a beautiful sporty look and a bit of variety is available as far as the color of the cell phone is concerned. We saw silver combination with the plum one. And a stylish looking white with metallic red. The cell comes in physical measurements of 4.3 by 1.9 by 0.7 inches and weight of about 4 ounces. It would seem quiet bulky to the readers but it is fairly sleek and it feels good while in hand.
The cell phone got camera shutter key on the right spine followed by a volume control which also acts like zoom in/out function key for the pictures. The mini SD card expansion slot is right at the bottom which seems to be good rather than the same feature to be placed on the back of the battery, inside the cell phone.
The high quality diagonally measured 2.4 inch screen show 262,144 colors at resolution of 240x320 pixels. The screen is fairly readable in bright sunlight. Nokia N73 is equipped with massive 3.2 mega pixel camera which has been placed on the back. Self-portraits and video conferencing can be done via a VGA camera which is on the upper right side, at the front of the cell phone. Appreciating picture quality of an already 3.2 mega pixel camera would seem ridiculous.
The quad band N73 supports more than enough formats for music playing MP3, AAC, WMA, m4a, and eAAC+. The audio quality is excellent.
Nokia N73's battery lasted for more than 5 hours while talking continuously and more than 14 days while being in standby mode. So it is obvious that N73 has got one of the best cell phone batteries till date.
The cell comes in box rich with basic accessories like adaptor, USB cable for synchronization with PC, a mini SD card to extend the approx 40mb built in memory, wrist strap and stereo head set etc. Spending approx $600 for a cell phone may seem over spending, but for a cell phone like N73, we can do that.
