Win a Nokia N73

Posted on August 16, 2006 by Aun

Over the past few weeks, I’ve had the pleasure of testing out one of Nokia’s awesome new N Series phones. The N73 is a joy to use and I’m not just saying that because I got one free. The N73 is the first Nokia I’ve used in years. Quite a few years ago, I made the switch to PDA phones, using (in order) a Treo, HP iPaq and most recently a Dopod 838 Pro, which I totally love. But I have to admit, the N73 has been winning me over. It’s a good size; it feels right in my hand. It has simple, clean looks (I hate fancy “fashion phones”) and the calender software works perfectly. Keying in appointments is a breeze and the read-out on the main screen is very clear. Best of all, the Nokia N73’s camera rocks. It has a 3.2 megapixel camera with a Carl Zeiss lens. I’ve complained in the past about the cameras on my PDA phones. The Treo’s was awful and the iPaq’s not much better. The Dopod’s camera isn’t bad but it’s nothing compared to N73’s. While you can’t really shoot things too close, for general snapping away, it’s brilliant.

But, as in all things, you should judge for yourself! So, thanks to the fine folks at Nokia, I’m thrilled to be able to give away 2 brand new Nokia N73 phones. I’ll be giving each one away via 2 contests over the next 2 months.

FUNNY EATING FOTOSis the first contest and it starts today! Sorry, but it’s open only to Singapore residents. Starting today, post the funniest photograph that you have taken of someone (that you know) eating or enjoying a meal. The photo can also be a self-portrait. I love funny photos of people eating. I especially love snapping them. My wife S (pictured here; photo taken with the N73), however, hates it, but has learned to live with it (and me). Please only post 1 photograph per contestant.

At the end of August, I will (with input from the folks at Nokia) pick a winner. To enter, you need to join Flickr, post your photo online and then send it to this Photo Group that I have created just for this contest: Funny Eating Fotos.Good luck! I look forward to seeing your entries and I’m looking forward to sending one of you a brand new Nokia N73.

    This is irrelevant to this post, but may I make a suggestion to your WONDERFUL blog that I read religiously on daily basis? Can you categorise the posts such as by recipes and restuarant reviews and such? I find it difficult to find previous posts that I have read before and want to go back to!

  2. Alex August 16, 2006 at 5:14 pm

    haha cool. i’ll be participating!

  3. ThyCountess August 16, 2006 at 5:46 pm

    Solo: Hi, sorry about that. On blogger, it’s difficult to sort by topics. I’m hoping to migrate to another format early next year so yes, hopefully by then I can archive by topic.

    Alex: Great!

    Thycountess: I’ll ask the Nokia guys. But for now, sorry, you have to based here.

    Hi Solo

    I know what you mean. For the moment, the easiest way to find specific posts is to google chubby hubby using the search engine that is in the extreme right column of the blog. That’s how I search for things around here :)

    Hmm.. I’ll have to see who I can catch with their mouth full…

  7. ana August 17, 2006 at 11:33 am

    aww… i wish it’s open to non-Singapore residents… Can I join still? My sis lives in The Bayshore. =D

    You bet i’ll be taking part in it! Sounds so exciting!

  9. Solo August 17, 2006 at 5:38 pm

    Thanks CH & S:

    I agree blogger makes it difficult to sort posts. Currently I use drop-down menus to categorise my posts by typing up the links of new posts in the template window, but its abit time-consuming. So tell me if you find a solution!

    Wow, COOL contest! I suspect it’s going to be a fun one. Too bad, I’m not from Singapore ;(
