Welcome Nokia Experts to the Family!

We're incredibly happy to announce that we're adding another member to the Smartphone Experts family of sites: Nokia Experts!  Nokia Experts will be run by the inestimable Matt Miller, also known as The Mobile Gadgeteer, host of ZDNet's Smartphones and Cellphones blog, palmsolo, and all around mobility guru.

Matt has a ton of knowledge about a subject that the rest of us at Smartphone Experts have historically lacked, namely Nokia, S60, and the Symbian OS in general.  He gives himself a brief introduction here, in the unlikely event you're not familiar.

Nokia has, as yet, not successfully made a big smartphone push in the United States, but that's quite likely to change as they have a slew of exciting new devices coming out and are also likely to have their E71 messaging smartphone picked up by AT&T very soon.  In other words, if, like us, you're relatively new to Nokia and S60 but want to learn more, Nokia Experts is surely going to be one of your best resources.  Heck, Matt's already published a full review of the Nokia 5800 Tube XpressMusic touch screen S60 device.  The 'Tube' is already a best-selling device overseas and is more of a worthy contender than you might think, so the review is definitely worth a read.

Go on and head over to Nokia Experts now and give 'em a big ol' hello!

Welcome Nokia Experts to the Family!


Congratulations. The good news is that you added a new member of the family. The bad news is that you also added a week to the next Round Robin and you'll be without your favorite smart phone for 7 extra days.

@The Reptile: True that! And knowing Dieter, he'll figure a way to get the Treo AND the Pre in there! There goes my iPhone HD (fingers crossed) for a season!
No one introduce any more OS's this year, okay?! (Looking at you, LinMo! jPhone!)

Shouldn´t it be SYMBIAN experts, or s60 experts??? Or are you gonna focus on Nokia´s "dumb" phones too??? If not, this name is completely erroneous...Samsung, LG, also do Symbian S60 phones, and will make Symbian foundation phones, like Nokia AND Sony Ericsson

First of all, the title suggests a group of bloggers ... unless Matt Miller suffers of multiple personalities disorder.
Then the Nokia Experts are ... well, within Nokia. An external may think it has the expert view on the matters but however many leaks will receive from the real Nokia experts (hopefully not many) they will still have only an external remote and filtered perception of the reality on which he is supposed to be an expert.

I would hardly classify Nokia S60 handsets as smaetphones!
Sure the E71 has a keyboard, but it's about 5 years behind even crappy Windows Mobile devices!

The keyboard does not define a smartphone, what does it is the state of the art operating system and the open application framework. The cheapest S60 model is better than whatever other "smart" phone on the market, especially iPhone (form without substance) and G1 (no form, no substance, no excuse). Gee!

I found your blog on google and read a few of your other posts. I just added you to my Google News Reader. Keep up the good work. Look forward to reading more from you in the future.
