This is the first minimalistic phone I see that seems to have all the functions I wish for in a phone. With a musicplayer and meditation timer combined with low SAR, e-ink screen and produced in the E.U. I’m quite keen on pre-ordering this phone.
But before I do that I have 2 concerns which I would like to check.
The first and main concern is the text input for writing text messages. The Nokia’s from old had precise and useful predictions when writing on a numerical keypad, the problem was that there wasn’t a multilanguage support. My question is if there will be support for multiple languages (for example, I write texts in Norwegian, English and Dutch) and if the T9 engine is built in such a way that makes writing on the phone a quick and useful task. As an example, the latest Nokia I tried was the 8110 4g, but the predictions were useless, which made writing on it a disruptive task instead of a useful tool. For now I’m using and old qwerty BlackBerry which is almost at end of life as they say.
My second concern is the lack of an sd-card slot for transferring music files. How much internal memory does the phone have, and can one of the nano sim slots double as an sd-card slot?
The sd-card slot would be nice, but isn’t essential. Text input on the other hand is something that definitely has to be good, since this defines the difference between a nice gadget or a useful tool.
Kind regards, Fabian
