nokia 6620

Arggg ... I had to return the new Nokia 6620 phone. Here are the reagons why?

  • I like the bluetooth capability
  • Sync up with Outlook calendar, notes, tasks and contacts
  • Good form factor
  • Expandable memory slot (although you have to replace the existing one if you buy a new memory card). But the built in memory should be good enough for most of the functions
  • Good Battery life


  • Key pad is rather small
  • DOES not sync up with outlook email. The software Nokia PC Sync does not support this capability. Only way to do it is to set the email as a POP3 or SMPT email account and sync up email via Internet
  • I thought this phone was really bulky for the capabilities it provides
  • The speaker phone is weak ... hardly a speaker phone in my opinion
  • Nokia PC sync software has a very poor UI

I had to return the phone because it does not support the email sync up using bluetooth and the phone was really bulky. After using a flip phone for so long ... I realized that I prefer a flip phone.

TIP: If you plan to buy any phone from the local AT&T wireless, do your research using google and they usually match the price on the device (they don't match the accessories). I was able to get the phone for about $100 less asking them to match the price.

Desktop Google search tool

This is really cool. I have started using this tool and it really does a great job ... finally I don't have to depend on the sluggish File explorer search capability. I am still figuring out all the capabilities it supports like wild card search, etc. I will blog about this as soon as find out more.
