By now, most people across the world have a certain regard for the brand name ‘Nokia’, that it is almost difficult to compete with anything churned out by them with decent quality and good performance. The problem though has been that sometimes it seems that either the design team of Nokia is either stuck in a time capsule or just feeding of past reputation. These days they just are not the same as they were when they started out. But then I’m sure there are plenty out there that disagree. But with the launching of the N series Nokia seems to have turned the corner finally. The N95 is truly a multimedia delight. It virtually has blown away all competition in its category and almost stands alone. Samsung is now at least attempting to try and challenge that monopoly by making a tweak to the Samsung G800. The Samsung G810 is nothing more than the Samsung G800 with the addition of Wi-Fi. The Samsung G800, a 5-megapixel 3.5G camera phone with a 3x optical zoom lens already has been dubbed as the ‘Photographer’s delight’. But many users have already claimed otherwise.
The G810 also has a slightly larger screen than its predecessors. The new screen is 2.6 inches and beyond this there is not much change. One still would feel that Samsung is aiming too high with the G810 if it believes that the new version can challenge the N95. But with more and more people exploring beyond the traditional ‘Nokia Choice’, the G810 has a fair chance. Wish I could get a bit of a trial, especially since I’m stuck with a 2.2-megapixel camera phone.
