Nokia N70 Music Edition and Phone Choices

The Nokia N70 Music Edition is just a slightly modified N70. All black housing, bundled 1 GB RS MMC card, a “music” key instead of the “multimedia key,” and extra themes loaded in the card. My guess is that: the N70 and Series 60 2nd Edition are still a viable platform, so Nokia can churn out more units. Or maybe the N91 is a dud so they need to make up.

I bought a new unit yesterday at Memo Express, Mall of Asia at the Equitable/Banco de Oro Card “Grand Gadgets Blowout” installment event. I swapped it for an N70 original edition and took the memory card. This N70 was acquired through Smart and is locked, and the user needed a Globe or open line one.

So, I’m down to a N70 from my previous N80 which was lost last month. In the month without the N80, I went back to my older Sony Ericsson K700i. The only feature I missed was 3G and WiFi, the S60 browser for desktop websites, and the camera. With the N70, I get 3G, but no browser so Opera will have to do. Even if the N70 is 2MP compared to the N80’s 3MP, it’s no big deal because the N80’s cam is noisy at 3MP and I lower it to 1MP anyway. 2MP should be good enough for candid cam photography, better than the K700i’s VGA.

I was thinking about an N73 for the autofocus camera, for But, the price is still too high especially for a unit without WiFi, and I read mixed reviews. I also had a chance to try Abe’s 6233 but it only has the stock Nokia browser for mobile websites. Of course you could use a server-side proxy, like what some operators provide. (Smart has one in their mobile homepage). Another interesting unreleased phone is the E61i, the keyboard/push email machine that some of my colleagues use, this time with a camera.

The last benefit of using an N70 instead of a flashier phone: less chance of being stolen, and less hassle if lost. I hope!

  1. Heh. So you’re no longer a Neo-Luddite? 😉

  2. Maybe not. Since I joined my new job, I found smartphones more useful, and my home PC (and tweaking PC hardware) less useful.

  3. […] Yes, it’s pink. My significant other got it from her brother, then she replaced the casing. I got her the N70 Music Edition. […]

  4. Happy new year.I want to know what changes done in n70M than n70. i am using n70.what will be difference in between N70 & N70M.

  5. Hi Sachin,
    The differences between N70 and N70 Music Edition are not much:
    1. Black casing.
    2. “Music” key instead of “Multimedia” key.
    3. Different firmware.
    4. 1 GB RS-MMC card bundled, with extra themes.

  6. hi,
    I want to take a new music phone,
    which will be the best for that?
    My budget is upto 17000/-.
    How is the music quality of new nokia N70 music edition?
    hows the external speaker of the same?
    please let me know.

  7. Hi Dheeraj,
    Based on your IP address, you’re in India… so is that 17,000 INR? Yeah the N70 Music Edition will fit your budget.

    But, the external speaker is exactly the same as the N70. No high fidelity there.

  13. Hi biren,
    “the other Migs” answered already.

    I haven’t seen it, but a white doesn’t seem like a good color for a 6233.

  14. i want buy n70 music edtion
    did i buy it is there any problems to purchase this cell plz send reply to my email-ID ok thanxs for ur help

  15. hi Migs..

    I am totally confused now between SE W710i and N70 ME, i wanna have music and a fone at the same time… iv read lotsa reviews bout these two fones.. i dont know what to buy..

    im a nokia fan for years, i wanna try SE this time.. but im afraid i myt not like it..

    pls help..

  16. Hi Mark,
    I have not used the SE W series, but from what I’ve read these are real music phones. The N70 ME is not. In fact I’m using a 6233 (regular, not ME) right now and I think it’s even better than N70 for music playback. It has a nice loudspeaker (important for me since I don’t like headphones.)

    The Sony Ericsson UI is much better than Nokia in many ways. The catch is that using in keypad for SMS is different.

  17. Hi, I m in confused state what to buy, the N70 OR N70 Music edition. Please state the differences between them by which I will be able to decide to buy anyone of them.

  27. Nokia N70 can upgrade N73 firmware? suitable?

  28. About…

    Song activation: Sorry, I don’t know about that. I never bothered.

    Size of memory card: 1GB for my retail package. Maybe it has been upgraded?

    Disadvantages: I don’t think there are any?

    Open line: I don’t think Nseries unlock codes are available yet.

    Original or duplicate: What do you mean, original or fake? I guess you can check from the firmware version.

    Other country’s firmware: I don’t think there’s “other country’s firmware,” just other operators. I don’t know the pros/cons.

    N73 firmware: No, definitely not, the N73 is very different. And it’s S60 3rd Edition, N70 is 2nd Edition.

  31. 6300 to E50 firmware: I don’t know. Are they the same hardware platform?

    Package contents: From memory, it’s the same as N70 plus the 1GB RSDVMMC card. Nothing else music related.

    China or Finland: I don’t know.

  90. hello? I have an N70 Internet edtion, but still it is not that fast. Is it advisable to insatall any software to make it faster?

  91. hehehe…my n70me is slightly faster compared to my normal n70. I debrand it to music edition with the firmware 5.0705.3.0.1, good stability, with lots of symbian games, app, mp3, and has 2 gigs of kingston dual voltage mmc.

  92. im still searching for infos if the latest firmware 5.0737.3.0.1 can support up to 4 gigs dual voltage mmc. I had read some forums that its possible to support. Its interesting to try. And n70 back is better compared to n80. Its true because n80 camera has a bad quality lense. So its not all just megapixels at all. this is confirm in other webasites. hehehee…

  93. Hai guys the difference between N70,N70-1 and N70(M) is nothing but the N70(M) comes with a full black panel, 1GB MMC pre loaded with 100 songs but N70 comes with white panel and 128 MMC… then the happiest message N70-1 users is herein N70-1 is called N70 music edition it is said Nokia website please study that new N70-1 available in internet….. According to me N70-1 is faster when compared to all other S60
    phones to makes other phones speeder install RAM Booster or else you must close every applications opened not pressing red button if you press that red that application will not be closed properly to see the minimised applications hold down the menu button for a meanwhile…. And you must scan your mobile properly every week… I am an Nokia N70-1 user if you have problem with your mobile just mail me at:
    jhbalaji@live.com and if know how to solve it i will reply to you…

    ALL SOURCES ARE GOT FROM INTERNET SO I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY ONE
