Well, this is a guest “Time Warp” this time! A few days ago I noticed Mikko Suhonen (@SuhonenM on Twitter) posting a shot from a very good looking Nokia N73 in its original case – from 2006.
So I asked him if he would be willing to make a Nokia Time Warp in PureViewClub style – just the package, the device and the accessories. And luckily he was! :-)
I’d like to add the link about the N73 at Wikipedia, from which I quote what’s written about this specific “Music Edition”.
In addition to the basic N73, Nokia subsequently released the N73 ‘Music Edition’. It has technically the same hardware as the N73, but the ‘multimedia button’ on the keypad has been replaced with a button that starts the music player. The Music Edition also includes a 2GB memory card and the phone is completely black.
The music player on the Music Edition supports album art and visualisations, while that on the regular N73 does not. It also has an improved control interface where ‘play’, ‘pause’, ‘stop’, ‘next’ and ‘previous’ may all be selected directly by simply pushing the phone joystick in the appropriate direction rather than having to scroll through on-screen buttons for these controls and then select them as on the ordinary N73.
The Music Player application stays in the background at all time (even when music is not being played) in the Music Edition of N73. In the latest firmware versions this application can be terminated, but doing so prevents from using the Music Edition remote control to start listening to music, until the application is started again by using the phone’s keypad.
I’m happy to present Mikko’s shots here. I never owned this device myself, but I hope it will bring back good memories to you!
I want to thank Mikko Suhonen for his time and trouble of creating these great shots!
