You might get surprised by the below numbers. A day after N97 was announced in I wanted to see how different are the high end ones different from the other models of Nokia’s Nseries and ESeries models. Here are the findings. Surprisingly N97 doesn’t have fastest processor and also it is marginally better than that of N95.
Generally the Eseries models had better and faster processors than their costlier Nseries counterparts. Below is the list of processor CPU speeds for Latest Nokia mobiles. The Nokia model with fastest CPU are E52 and E55. The N96 has dual processors (2 ARM 9) . Though the CPU itself is not the only criteria in pricing of the models, but costliest model N97 has a reasonably lower CPU speed than E52 which 50% of N97’s price.
Same with E71 and E63. E63 is exact replica of E71 except GPS and 3G.
Nokia it seems is obsessed with the number 6600, afterall the original Nokia 6600 was its first ever successful Smart Phone. After the failure of its 6600 Slider now Nokia has launched a better upgrade 6600i Slider 3G with top of the line features. First the looks and Coolness factor
Nokia 6600i Looks and Design :
This phone adds the much needed ?? curvy looks to the Boxy slider design of Nokia high end phones. Imagine a N85 looking better wih curvy looks. It picks the design of the old Nokia 6600’s curvy looks. The phone looks pretty neat and it will help everyone to compare this beauty with existing phones in terms of size and dimensions.
To compare Nokia 6600i ‘s looks and dimensions we took some other popular sliders of the current generation. The cool Nokia 7100 SuperNova, Nokia N85 , Nokia N95.
The dimensions are Height (length) x Width x Thickness . Below are dimensions (thickness) comparison of Nokia 6600i,N85,Super Nova 7100,N95 8GB, Nokia 6300 and N96.
Nokia 6600i slider – 93 mm x 45 mm x 14.2 mm
Nokia 7100 Super Nova – 98 mm x 48.4 mm x 15 mm
Nokia N85 – 103 mm x 50 mm x 16 mm
Nokia N95 8Gb – 100 mm x 53 mm x 21 mm
Nokia N96 – 103 mm x 55 mm x 18 mm
Nokia 6600 Slider –
So the results are clear the new Nokia 6600i is definitely smaller in terms of dimensions compared to Super Nova 7100 by 5 mm in length and 3 mm in width. The new Nokia 6600 is same in its thickness to Nokia Super Nova 7100. The phone is definitely thinner compared to the N95 and N85. The Nokia 6600 has the same dimensions as that of new Nokia 6600i.
In terms of the weight .Below are weight comparison of Nokia 6600i,N85,Super Nova 7100,N95 8GB, Nokia 6300 and N96.

Nokia Super Nova 7100 – 103 g
Nokia N85 – 128 g
Nokia N95 8GB – 129 g
Nokia N96 – 125 g
The new 6600i is little heavier than the Super Nova 7100 but lighter than the NSeries phones. We also compared it with Nokia 6300 one of the lightest and thinnest phones, the Nokia 6600i is almost 20 grams heavier.
Nokia 6600i is a 3G , S40 series phone with top of line features like 5MP camera and 2.2 TFT screen.
Screen resolution – 320 x 240
Colours – 16.7 Million
This is a standard resolution for almost all the above mentioned phones. But the colours does make a huge difference in Nokia 6600i. It has 16.7 Million colours bringing 6600i to the level of other N series phones like N96 and N95. Compared to this the Super Nova has only 65,000 colours.

When the colours increase the battery life reduces, the talktime of Nokia 6600i is half that of Super Nova 7100 and equal to other N series phones.
This post talks about Mass memory issues in Nokia N95 8GB , Nokia N96 and some cases covers N97 also.
The problems can any of the following
* While connecting the N95 8GB phone to PC in Data Transfer mode and trying to access the mass memory, the phone reboots automatically. * While trying to play/view certain files the phone reboots abruptly again and again. * Phone says no memory / No space inspite of having enough space. * Unable to store data in the mass memory of these phones. * Getting any other error message.
Possible causes :
* Nokia N95 8GB and N96 have flash memory and it can get corrupted in various situations. – Unplugging the cable in middle of transfer. – copying corrupted data/virus affected files. – Removing battery in middle of data operation. – Trying to play videos/songs stored in phone directly in PC. – Physical damage (In this case phone has to be returned to Nokia service center)
Solutions : – Connect to PC in PC suite mode and click backup option in the PC suite to backup all your contacts,calendar entries and Notes etc. If you can copy other content like Pictures and Videos you can back them up manually. – Go to phone settings and click restore factory settings (This process will clear phone memory not mass memory) , it will reset your phone after restart to original settings and you can restore your settings from your previous backup. During this step the phone will ask for security code (Lock code / unlock code ). The default security / lock /unlock code for Nokia N95 8GB and N96 is 12345. But if you had changed it after buying the phone, you need to enter the correct code. If the phone doesnt accept the code for 2 times, dont try again. As this could lockout your phone.
If the above step doesnt solve your problem then you need to format your mass memory from phone itself (no need to format from Windows).
– Go to Menu –> Tools –> Utilities –> Memory In the memory click options and select format mass memory. This will format your mass memory and clear any bad sectors or bad bytes in the memory.
If both the above steps doesnt solve your problem, the problem could be a hardware issue, you may need to take it the Nokia service center (Nokia Care).
