I was waiting for this phone for last four months. Finally I bought it on Saturday. Now that I used it for three days, I can write a review. My earlier phone N72 was great. I miss that phone. I exchanged it for this mobile. Though this mobile is much better than N72, I still miss that phone. May be the moments I captured with that phone are priceless. Lets not drift to this. This review is my frank opinion as an owner and end user. I am not paid for this review at all.
I opened the box and there was the beauty. The back cover is not as good as other Nokia mobiles. It’s difficult to remove and insert the battery. At least for the first time. Sliding cover would have been great. When I switched it on, It started fast. Faster than other Nokia mobiles with 1GB+ memory card. There are only three buttons on front. Receive, Reject and the white one for menu. No more buttons on front. Coool…
The next step was to insert SIM and memory card. Both can be inserted easily via slots provided on side. One thing I didn’t understood. Why there was need to provide a side slot for SIM?? This Sim cannot be removed without opening the back cover. So whats the use of the side slot? It’s better and safe within the mobile. About the memory card, It’s 8GB. More than sufficient for me. It already comes loaded with Hindi and English soundtracks. A special album “Connections” by A.R.Rehman composed just for this phone. But not a good one. Other songs provided are really good. About 200+ tracks. Continue reading →
Human eye is one of the best creations and it’s one of the best part of our body. The best part varies from person to person. The news is about an eye shaped camera which resembles human eye. It was successfully designed by the US scientists using standard sensor materials. Looking at the picture it looks to be an ideal solution for bionic eye.
This is a great boon to those who are blind. This breakthrough should help them to see this beautiful world again. The scientists have said that this could be well used for an artificial retina. I don’t have to tell you how important is this retina for our eyes. It is first time that the camera is demonstrated on curved surface to make it look like human eye. Picture tells us how successful the attempt is.
The surface may well look curved but is made up of very small squares. These tiny squares hold the photo detectors and electronic components. The squares are connected to each other with tiny wires which help the squares to mould into curve surface. It is difficult task to mount the circuit boards on curved surface as they come only in flat shape. The above solution helped to mount the components without breaking them.
Another good use of it may be in the robots. Current generation robots could be improved to a great extent with the use of this eye shaped camera. They will also resemble human beings more precisely. Only time will tell us where this ground breaking invention will lead us. Till that time comes you can keep reading my blog and..
