Out of the box the first thing that struck us about the N76 was how much it looked like the Motorola Razr flip. The similarity to the Razr isn't limited to the looks department - it's about the same size and weight too. Many things it may be, but Nokia's 3G flip smartphone isn't much of a poster child for the Finnish company's …
don't forget, the pencil key is also the access point to the well hidden bounty of copy and paste.
"phone's ability to speak the name of the person calling you, so long as their name is in the phone book. We found that quite handy after a while"
I guess that means using "humorous" nicknames in your phone book is something you'll need to be careful about!
This looks like a RAZR without the god-aweful iTap predictive text... If it does T9 then I'm sold. Hopefully the build quality will improve, perhaps it might be better to wait for v0.1!
Agree with IanKRolfe
If this is a RAZR with a decent text input system and UI response, it's my next upgrade without question.
N76 Chrome All Peels Off
I have had my N76 about 3 months, and all the "chrome" plastic has now lost its coating, leaving dull white plastic and a peeling mess of remnants. Never had this problem with my previous N73.
At least the Series 60 UI is now finally REALLY quick, even with 300 SMSes in one folder.
Red paint and Chrome Peeling Off
Have owned my Red N76 for about three months and the paint work down the left and right hand side of the keypad has strated to peel off. The chrome around the flash has come off and the keypad is showing signs of wear.
This is not a good sign for the future.
Pretty peeved to be honest as I bought this off contract. It wasn't cheap!!
That's one hell of an ugly phone.
I had mine months too. Yes the chrome does peel - very annoying. There has been an update to v2.x for a while now that will give the Stereo Bluetooth profile so "...does not support the A2DP profile needed for wireless headphones.." does not really apply now.
Paint peeling issue covered under warranty....
...in the UK at least. So speak to the Nokia Careline, get them to email you confirmation that its covered under warranty, then send it back to Nokia or take it to your local Nokia Repair Centre.
