Mobile Burn publishes 3G mobile phone review
Posted on 15-Jul-2003 06:30 | Filed under: News

Mobile Burn reviewed the NEC e606, part of the 3G mobile phones available from 3. Overall the phone is good, the services are ok, but the author feels that connectivity is a problem:


"Oh well. At least we have Bluetooth so we donít need to use the cable. Unfortunately not. The Bluetooth is useless. The only thing Bluetooth works with is using the phone as a modem. You canít pair headsets with it, and you canít use it to transfer files to the phone. Thus 95% of the functionality has been removed. I donít know why they bothered."

"The ironic part is that 3 are offering a Jabra Freespeak Bluetooth headset as an accessory to the e606 - but you have to connect a Bluetooth adaptor to the e606 to use it."

"..., you can use the 3G network to browse websites (currently only available on 3 in certain parts of the world). With a maximum speed of 384kbps, I found it was much faster than GPRS in most things. Although 384kbps is only a theoretical limit, I routinely got speeds of around 150-200kpbs. The phoneís in-built browser is pretty decent, and could load quite complex pages. Web browsing was a pleasure because of the nice screen. "

In short, a mobile phone with built in Bluetooth that needs an external Bluetooth adapter to use a headset because it only implements the Dialup profile...
