Nokia, king of mobile phones, has announced a Speakerphone, the HF-300.
It’s a functional-looking device that isn’t going to set the catwalk-goers alight with whoops of joy.
They’ve done well in reducing the number of buttons to three on the battery-powered device, with two of those being volume controls. They’ve even missed off a power button, as it switches itself off when it’s not being used.

Environmental stories feel like buses today – you don’t hear about one for ages, then two come along at once.
Nokia has now discovered the joys of energy saving, something they need to do as removing mobile phone chargers from the wall socket, is oft sighted as a simple thing that everyone can do to reduce the amount of electricity that is wasted.
To address this, Nokia are releasing the first mobile phones to include alerts to encourage people to unplug their charger once the battery is full. By their reckoning, this could save enough electricity to power 85,000 homes a year – not to be sneezed at.

Richard’s two previous parts on the N95 and N95 GPS haven’t been very encouraging. Today he covers connecting it to a computer, the 5Mpx camera, making phone calls and concludes with what he thinks of it.
Connecting the N95 to your computer
By this time, the N95’s battery is well and truly battered. Just a bar left. Plug it in to the admittedly elegantly well-designed lightweight charger and set about attempting a sync again.
PC Suite installs first time in Vista, and syncs with Outlook successfully and seamlessly. Hurrah – a success.

As we saw on Friday, Richard isn’t too happy with his Nokia N95. Today he tackles the GPS function and
tomorrow the day after will be connecting his N95 to a computer, the 5Mpx camera and making phone calls.
GPS – Come to my rescue
Obviously, the narrow West End street where I work wouldn’t be a fair test, so I take it over the road to Golden Square in Soho. It’s Friday, it’s hot and sunny, if a little bit hazy, but I’m in a clear open space with no buildings for 50 metres on all sides.
Okay, time to try out the device’s killer app – GPS and Nokia Maps. Having previously owned a Garmin Trek and an ill-fated Ipaq 6915, I’m familiar with the sluggishness of finding an initial navigating signal, so I’m giving the Nokia plenty of leeway to be a bit slow at first.
