An Open Letter To Santa – My Wishlist!

Probably i maybe a bit late, everyone else might have already made their wishlist. But hey, it’s never too late right?! So here is my small Smartphone-ish wishlist that i’d want dear Santa to fulfill. Here you go!

Dear Santa,

This is ofcourse festive season and everyone out there has been asking something or the other to you. Now that made me think what would I ask (oh, we all believe you exist, don’t we?). While there’s been a lot on my mind of late, and I’ve been busy with a lot of stuff to just concentrate on anything else, I stumbled upon a nice article by my good friend Nitish Kumar , but I don’t want just an N900!! I want a lot more than that! I want a N8, the mighty E7, the N900 the Nexus S. Asking for too much eh? Read on why I’d want four rather than one smartphone.

Why do I want the N8?


The questions seems silly. Everyone knows what the N8 can do. But I have a reason why I want the N8 – I’m retiring my old mechanical camera and N8 is certainly a good bet considering it unites telephony and awesome digi-pic’ing. The camera that the N8 has comes with the largest sensor on a phone ever, coupled with a powerful Xenon flash. Photography couldn’t have been made easier eh? And no, I have not been fascinated by any other camera on a phone so much, ever! Throw in video-editor, HDMI recording and playback, HDMI out and hola! What more do you want? I rest the N8’s case here.

Why I want the E7?


Wondering why I want the E7 even after saying that I want N8 that can get my job done for telephony purposes? First things first, both the devices are from different series. N8 is a multimedia monster and the E7 is well ofcourse, a great device for the corporates – slick and powerful. I have been a fan of the Eseries big time. These devices may sound plain, but these are the ones that ‘just perform’. Want to click pics? They can do. Videos? Songs? Document editing/creating? They can do it all, and quite easily. And oh wait, they are super multitaskers like every other Symbian out there. True to the power of Symbian, Eseries is my choice of series among series across manufacturers. And E7 is the first in the series to come with touchscreen. Add a slideout QWERTY keyboard and Nokia, you have a customer in me already (although I don’t know if I could afford that). And given a chance to chose from the current crop, E7 would be my pick, just for the facts I’ve stated above. And oh, it does remind me of the E90, Nokia’s legendary Communicator. Nostalgia! The E7’s case shall rest here.

Why I want N900?


Geek pleasure totally. Powerful, good looks, good camera etc. I could go on and on though. Everyone knows how powerful Linux OS is and for once, just FYI, you could dual-boot N900!! That is freaking awesome. And with the advent of Meego, the experience could just get better. Many devices were launched after N900, and a whole world of Androids came and went by, but even now, N900 shines brighter than many others. Personalize till your hearts content, communicate with your Social buddies on the go, without needing a 3rd party app (yeah! To all those who love to say, ‘There’s an app for that’), N900 is what every iPhone should have been and perhaps many Symbians too. Don’t even talk about Androids for now. The only thing that may set it back could be a normob, and it’s not even meant for normobs for starters. And oh did I say you can even control your Linux-based desktop/laptop with it? You bet! For all the power it provides, it costs very little (unlike iPhone and Androids). The N900’s case shall rest here.

Why I want the Nexus S?


Oh just because I like curves! Oops. I do. But no, that’s not the only reason. The display is one hell of an attraction for sure. Other major attraction is the fact that it is from Google. And being a Google product, one can expect a great device, can’t they? Sure I do. Also, it’s got Gingerbread on it, so that’s another attraction. To be honest, the specs don’t really make it revolutionary, but it’s attractive design and speed are the ones I want. And being Google’s product, it will always be the first one to receive updates. Elitist anyone? That’s it for the Nexus S Santa.

Looking at the list above, don’t pass a judgement saying I’m biased. What one asks you can be anything. And I think I prefer functionality over eye-candy. Talking about Nexus S, I think the only reason I included it in the list is because of its looks.

There end all my fantasies for the moment and I’d be more than glad if you could/would fulfill even one! Lol! I would be rather happy if someone fulfills their promise (WomWorld/Nokia :)) too. Let the festivities start and let the world be a peaceful place to stay.

Thank You,
Rounak Jain

What are your wishes? List them down, Santa may just hear both of us!
