Spring

The last couple of weekends have been our first opportunity to start working in the garden this year. There are some nice spring flowers starting to appear here and there. I took a couple of pictures with the camera in my new mobile. It’s a Nokia N85 and the camera is, if anything, even better than the already excellent one in the N95 I had before. The colour reproduction in the two shots above is marvellous.

Anyway, my daily ride across the West End to work is getting more pleasurable by the day as the daffodils and other spring flowers proliferate in around Hyde Park, and even allowing for the economic maelstrom we find ourselves in (particularly in the retail sector in which I work) it’s hard not to feel a little more optimistic.

It’s Rothmans’ first birthday next Saturday. For various reasons we are having her party tomorrow, and although she has a filthy cold hopefully she will have a nice time!

    Great subjects, great pics, but why the N85 rather than the N96, out of interest?

  2. Fleet of Worlds says:

    I looked at both, but the N96 was £100 more expensive for which one got a marginally larger screen (but not OLED), inferior build quality, more onboard memory (if I need it I could buy a bigger microSD card) and some mobile TV technology which doesn’t work in the UK. Everything else (camera etc) is the same, but in a smaller and more pocket-friendly form factor, so I decided to save the £100 (which is most unlike me!)

    A lot of the online reviews I have read have suggested that the introduction of the N85 has made the N96 irrelevant (at least in the UK where it’s fancy mobile TV stuff doesn’t work). I’d tend to agree.

    Lovely. And HB to Rothy.

    Two words for you though: X and 1. 🙂

    Thanks 6000! As for the X1 – I was sorely tempted – maybe next time!
