Hands on with the Nokia Nuron

March 24th, 2010 at 5:28 AM

The existence and specs of the Nokia Nuron aren’t news to anyone; however, today at CTIA, we got to spend a few minutes pawing the new device for the first time. Allow us now to give you our two word review of the Nuron: not impressed. The Nuron isn’t supposed to be a high-end smartphone — we all know this — but the execution on this particular device leaves quite a bit to be desired. Interacting with the Symbian OS on a full touch screen device reminds us of our initial encounter with the BlackBerry Storm 9500 and the BlackBerry OS. It just isn’t all that good. Don’t get us wrong: we love Nokia Messaging and Ovi Maps but there has to be a little more there. Entering text was clunky as the touch-screen wasn’t all that responsive, and the web browser is still the Nokia Symbian web browser. This is a phone I would buy for my 12-year old sister — if I had one — but certainly not a phone anyone contemplating an Android, BlackBerry, or iPhone device should even consider — especially since they are all relatively inexpensive these days. We’ve got a couple pics from the Nokia booth after the break.
