One of the best Nokia box I've seen so far.
The BH-602 is the first ever bluetooth headset I'll be using. I usually do not read manuals before using any device but I think I'll have to reads this ones carefully, althouth I was able to pair it with the 6210 couldn't do the same with the N95. There are different key combinations (Power + BT button) to set/reset/re-pair etc.. , also the pass key which is '0000' is needed to pair. Couldn't have figured out without opening the manual.
The 6210 is a S60 FP2 device, same like the N78 so expected transitions/effects in this one too but it comes with no such themes.
The slide is smoother , better than the N95.
The keys as well as the keypad are great.
The camera/photos are good but the way finder is always grainy. The camera has a 'panorama' mode which seems cool. Only modes the camera supports Night mode and Sequence Mode.
GPS connects fast. Upgrading to Maps 3 was tedious , but it went smooth. Just followed the instructions and it worked. Will post more about Maps3.
Downloaded NGage (not there by default). Played 'The One' , pretty interesting just like Tekken. Trying hard to defeat Raven.
Accelerometer present, no need to install FlipSilent, its present as a setting. I do not like the auto-rotation feature but turning on the sensor activates Auto-rotation. And flip silent will work only if sensor is on ;(
Menu is reorganized. 'My Own' is back. So all installations go into 'Applications->My Own' , also since 'My Own' cannot be moved to other folders , its always one more click to get to our applications.
Some games are included , 'Applications->Games' (marble/jelly chase/brain champ). Preloaded apps , Yahoo Go/we:offset/dictionary.
Stay tuned for more about Maps3 and the 6210.
