Nokia 6790 Surge aka Nokia Mako
Nokia Surge Summary Review
Nokia recently has unveiled a custom made for US AT&T’s customer handset that namely Nokia Surge aka Mako. The phone is built for easy messaging and social media capability as well as office-use capabilities. Features rich is the advantages of the phone but the unique design also catch most people eyes. It is a most un-Nokia-like Nokia device on the market. It sports a full pull out QWERTY keyboard and full HTML browsing with Flash and running on Symbian S60 OS. On top of that, the Nokia Surge has a very affordable price for $80 from AT&T with a contract agreement in US. For people outside the US, the Nokia Surge will be renamed as Nokia slide 6760 which specs are basically identical and unlocked. This international version will be available very soon. But before we get to review Nokia Surge, we will take a look on how other people think about this handset.
Cons: Aging Symbian OS not as friendly as other smartphones, or simpler feature phones. Lacks advanced IM and SMS options.
The Bad: The phone has a number of design quirks and doesn’t have the best build quality. You can’t dial numbers without opening the keyboard.
The Bottom Line: The Nokia Surge offers AT&T’s younger customers an affordable, feature-rich smartphone, but it has a number of design and interface issues.
