Nokia E71 – Battery Drain

Do you own a Nokia E71?  Has the battery been acting up lately?  Does it barely make it through the day before you need to plug it in?

My E71 has been going through that.  The battery barely lasts a day.  Changing the battery will result in the same problem.  I toyed with the idea of sending the phone to Nokia for them to take a look.  However, that didn’t quite sit well with me because they’ll always send it back with another issue.

Recently, I went out of the country for 3 weeks and didn’t need my phone.  I just let it sit at home so that the battery could complete discharge.  When I got home, I plugged it in and charged the battery overnight.  Now, the phone will go about 4-5 days, depending on usage, per charge.

Another Day, Another Netbook Part 2

This time, Nokia is releasing a netbook.

Meet the Nokia Booklet 3G.

Details on the new netbook are a little lacking.  So far, this netbook is powered by an Intel Atom Z520 or Z530 CPU and has a 10 inch screen.  It also sports an HDMI port.  Expect the screen resolution to be better than most netbooks.  Nokia is claiming that this netbook will get up to 12 hours of battery life.  As for real world battery performance, expect 9-10 hours.

I think the netbook will show up with Windows 7.  More details will be posted as soon as I find out.
