It’s been not long ago since mobile phones have become commonplace in our lives and since then, we’ve witness the evolution of the mobile phone into something that is more than just a phone. The mobile phones of today have evolved into mini-computers, helping us get through our daily life, offering services that once had been unheard of in something so unassuming. So much so that most people take it for granted until they lose their phones. As a telecommunications tool, the mobile phone has gone from just offering phone calls and text messaging services to becoming all-rounded entertainment devices.
In the recent years, we are also starting to see the trend in phones offering high-speed internet connectivity with GPRS, EDGE and HSDPA. All of these serve to provide connectivity for us while we are out on the move and the increased mobility has provided more opportunities for people to connect to the world. From PMEB’s who need to access the internet while out on the move to teenagers who feel the need to share their daily lives with friends, mobile phones of today are fast becoming powerful tools for bringing people together. Whilst all of this tecnology can be daunting for many, Finnish telecommunications manufacturer, Nokia, recognised this and pioneered the move to provide Human Technology to mobile phone users around the world. Thus, forever changing the way people look at mobile phones again.
Today, we will take the Nokia 6500 Slide for a spin and see what has been packed into this diminutive package.
