Nokia N95/N96 Question

by Dawgfanclark / February 20, 2008 10:14 AM PST

I am probably never going to buy a Nokia phone (but never say never right?) but I am curious as to the hype around these phones. My main question is what is the method of text entry? I never see a keyboard so I assume it is on-screen or maybe some text recognition software..

Just curious.

I gave up the BB for the iPhone and like Molly I am thinking that Garmin phone is looking HOT.. I can't wait to see it in action.. also think the 9xxx series of BB could be sweet too!

Thanks and later.

I have the N95

The text input is all on the dial pad. Took me a while to get used to it as I had the Blackberry Pearl.

When I replaced the Pearl with the N95 I found that I really miss the sure type that the Pearl had. By the time people could type hello, I already had a paragraph done.

But I have been moving slowly to social media and the N95 wins hands down.

If your all about the email and messaging, I would recommend the Pearl or ANY blackberry product to anyone.

If you go with the N95, better get the unlimited data plan because it will burn through your credits in no time.

... and also you can pair Bluetooth keyboards with it. Think Outside's products are popular, especially as the stand built into them is perfect to prop up the Nokia.

The 'hype' around these phones is that they pack an extraordinary amount of portable power and functionality in a phone form factor, not near-4-year-old technology like the iPhone (which I also have, and use as a backup to the N95).

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
