Nokia N70 Video Blogging

So my buddy Andy just sent me this fancy shmancy cell phone that does everything a video blogger would want. The video capture is so easy to use anyone can do it, really… I am not kidding.

Just pull down the camera cover on the back of the phone and you are ready to film. Push the big button in the middle of the phone to start recording and push it again to pause. Whalla! You now have a video already in MP4 format. Here is one I shot of my son Kyler as an example, my Mom and Dad are in Australia visiting my bro and my other bro is in Calgary, I thought they would all appreciate this 🙂

The audio is pretty good and the quality of the Carl Zeiss 2 megapixel camera is also quite good. I could not get Lifeblog to work, not even for a text posting so uploading the movie from my direct to my blog was a no go, but I am sure I will figure this out. I could not get the USB cable to work with the software on XP either, good thing I have a MMC card reader in my laptop and PC, yes the MAC is coming 😉

For me this is a handy tool, good for impromptu interviews and it actually works quite well as a cell phone. It’s too bad these manufacturers are still struggling to combine a good keyboard with a multimedia cell phone. I would love to be able to IM on this thing as well but alas the keyboard sucks for that.
