SPV C600 vs Nokia N70, Windows Mobile vs Symbian
In 2002 number of mobile phone users reached the number of 1 billion. Nowadays more than 2 billions of people have mobile phones. It is incredible – 2 of 6 people in the world use a mobile phone. A few years ago we could only talk or send messages by a mobile phone. Now we are invaded with tons of facilities, we even do not know what mean some of them: GPRS, UMTS, MMS, WAP, GSM, CDMA, EV-DO, EDGE, CSD. As any industry that is advancing, this one is getting more and more complex. Due to technological advancement it was stupid that a mobile phone that has a processing power as one on a PC to stay blocked only on calling and messaging functions. The answer of the producers was the soft standardization and as a result appearance of operating systems. So, mobile phone producers can direction their researches strictly on hardware and not to think about soft.
Orange SPV C600
It is a smartphone that works with Windows Mobile 5.0 Smartphone Edition, has a TI OMAP850 processor , 195 MHz, 64 MB RAM, a LCD 240×320 TFT display in 65 k colors, has an integrated Bluetooth and IrDA and disposes of a miniSD slot (initially has a card with 32 MB).
Look and feel:
C600 is a robust and a simplistic phone. But it has a very big display that offers dynamism for the applications on the phone – scroll is not necessary so often. The big problem of C600 is the joystick that is getting broken rather fast (because of dust in contacts). Fortunately, Windows Mobile puts figures near the menu options automatically and the navigation thorough the applications can be made by the keypad. Buttons on this phone are excellent – they are not as small as it seems initially (because of big dimensions of the display in comparison with the dimensions of the phone) and they are very resistant. You have practically everything you need here and at the same time buttons are arranged very good: softkeys, home button that always brings you on the homescreen without exiting from applications, back button that in function where it is used works as a backspace (text editing) or for returning back (web browsing, file browsing). Buttons for answer, hangup and joystick (that can be pressed and used as an equivalent for enter) are also present of course. On sides of the phone we also have buttons for volume, camera and Internet Explorer. The speaker is ok – it is audible rather good without distortion.
Besides of normal GPRS (supports EDGE also), C600 comes with integrated IrDA and Bluetooth. A major plus for C600 is that when it is connected to the PC by AciveSync, this receives an IP automatically and can access the network of the computer as if where an other computer connected to this network.
Synchronization is made painless by an excellent ActiveSync. This has a native Microsoft Outlook support and Windows Media Player and the content of the memory and the storage card can be accessed extremely easy from the Windows Explorer. Other programs as Total Commander unfortunately do not see the phone as a drive. Synchronization can be made as through the USB so through the Bluetooth or IrDA. The transfer through Bluetooth is very slow but the one through USB is the same fast as on a card reader.
Camera is extremely weak – although it has 1,3 Mp and can make images at a 1280×1024 maximum resolution. The camera is probably the weakest component of the phone. Many users can say that they are not interested in camera and if they want to make images they use a digital camera. But the reality is that you do not have a digital camera with you permanently. Usually, when you want to make a photo the single thing that you always have with you is your phone. And it is unpleasant when the quality of the images is weaker than on a cheap web cam.
In any case basic function of the phone is to receive calls. And we need to say that C600 is not really great in this domain. It is happening rather often that radio part is dying (can not receive/initiate calls and navigate through net also). Another annoying problem is that in the moment when the processor is overbusy (listening to the music plus connected to a GPS receiver) the response time is relative big after what the answer button is pressed and the beginning of the conversation is a little bit complicate.
Using as an iPod:
C600 by using WM 5.0 benefits of an excellent Windows Media Player 10.0. This allows as mp3 files playback, so wma, wmv or even streaming – ideal for using together with Star Media Centre. Headphones are ok, although they are rather fragile. It is superb the mode how the phone makes a fade out when it is receiving a call and when the conversation is over it resumes automatically with a fade in.
Orange SPV C600 is an excellent phone with excellent facilities (Bluetooth, IrDA, one of the best displays, Windows Mobile 5, loading the battery thorough the USB). But it has also some weak components – that are caused basically of a weak hardware (camera, GSM modem).
It is a smartphone that works on Symbian S60 2nd Edition, has an ARM-9 series processor with a speed of 220 MHz, 32 MB RAM, a LCD 176×208 TFT display in 256 k colors and has a slot for RS-DV-MMC (initially has 64 MB card).
Look and feel:
This phone looks good – better than C600. Nokia made a great work on the design of this phone. Although the display has almost the same dimensions as the one on SPV, it is inferior because of the small resolution. Even if it has 256 k of colours the quality of the screen is worse than on the C600 that has only 65 k of colours. The joystick is much more robust than on the C600, and it does not seem that it breaks so easy. This phone has a great number of buttons that are not used too often. C600 is much more superior in ergonomics – you do not really need a special button for menu because it can be accessed from the homescreen and it is not comfortable to place a text removal button down because we are all accommodated that backspace is somewhere above and there are also not really necessary special buttons to write a SMS or to enter the gallery. But of course this is a phone for those who are passionate and for those who do not want a phone that can only write SMS. This phone does not have any lateral buttons. The speaker is not too strong but it is heard rather well. The hotswap facility (possibility to change MMC card when the phone is working) is really easy – C600 needs to be turned off for this operation. Camera is protected by a valve slider that automatically activates or stops the camera – very neat.
Nokia N70 has GPRS, Edge and UMTS capacities. Bluetooth implementation is excellent; files are being received inbox like a SMS with in attachment.
It is used well-known Nokia PC Suite for PC synchronization. It can link the phone to the computer by a cable or Bluetooth. Although it is not integrated so well with Outlook as ActiveSyn, PC Suite is working well. The strong part of the phone is an automatic installation of sis or java applications by the executing them in Explorer from the PC. To install a CAB under Windows Mobile it must be copied on the device first and executed there. Unfortunately PC Suite does not link the phone to the network of the PC. And it is really bad part of the phone. It means that you will have to develop file transferring application via GPRS. In such conditions, during the development of such an application the price for the GPRS will be astronomic.
In a single word – it is excellent. It is perfect for a mobile phone – 2.4 MP. And it is very easy to use it – just slide and ready. N70 has a second camera (in front – for 3G), which is very weak (in any case never mind). The single problem is that when the keypad is blocked and if in a pocket for example the cap of the camera is moved it starts.
It is also excellent. Blocking problems or problems with GPRS connectivity never appears. There is nothing to reproach.
Used as an iPod:
Although the music application looks fine it can not be compared with Windows Media Player that is an industry standard. Another minus is that it does not make an automatic resume after a conversation. More than that – it seems that N70 can not make many sounds simultaneously – i.e. when the music is listened menu sounds do not work. We have to say that radio facility works very well but only when the headphones are connected to the phone.
Nokia N70 is a good phone. It is 3G. It has an excellent design, a very good 2Mp camera, a hotswap, radio and a good GSM modem. At the same time it is to slow for a phone with 220MHz processor, it can not be loaded by USB cable, needs a special soft (Nokia PC Suite does not goes on NGage – and it is practicably impossible to use both of them on the PC simultaneously), when it is connected to the PC it does not use the internet connection of the computer, has a display with low resolution, rather often it has operating system crashes and the battery is weak in conditions of exhaustive usage (mp3/radio,GPRS traffic, Bluetooth).
And which is the best? You choose. It depends of what you want from the smartphone. For someone it is important design, for others camera, operating system or long battery working.
