Sounds nice. I just love the ability to see something crazy going on or whatnot and take out my mobile phone and get mildly acceptable video out of it. Its a nice feature.

I figure in a few years we'll have several ntsc 'camera phones' out recording mpeg4 to small memory cards. Works good for capturing that random stuff that you wish you had your camera for.

That's what you are getting for not testing posted URL's.

And BTW the 15 fps video is watchable on the device. If only they did not insist on putting MMC flashcard in it.

And if you like to see, what Nokia envisions as a media mobile phone then take a peek at the video for 6630 at www.nokia.com/nokia/0,8764,58949,00.html

testing, testing ... it works

Watching the video i doubt that he would have gotten the same out of a XL2 and a laptop. This proves smaller is sometimes better!

What's wrong with the MMC cards?

Jos Svendsen December 29th, 2004 11:05 AM


MMC is a thinner (0.7 mm) edition of the SD Card, and it's got build in DRM. It is a Sandisk/Nokia design ment for smartphones and MP3-players.

The holy grail of all telecom is content, and in our digital age the telcos and the phone manufacturers want to make sure that the digital content stays on the right phone and doesn't get distributed all over the internet.

Due to demand and design. MMC is more expensive, has less performance and capacity that SD Cards. Especially at the larger sizes.

That's why I think that SD Cards are a better choice

Interesting thought on DRM. I don't like the idea of making sure content stays protected is the main priority on choosing a good medium.

On the other hand that Nokia promotional video was very cool. Just proves a cool phone always gets the girl.

He didn't demonstrate any video capibilities though. Does this phone have them?

Oh, Ok. Well, I'm stuck with Sony MemoryStick DUO's on my Sony/Ericsson phone, so the thought of MMC sounded better to me than it did to you I guess. :)

When we get above F1.4 outside I'll try to do some video on the 6630, and get it posted somehow.

I have a flash for it with build in videolight. But in this country at this time a year, where the big HMI in the sky is on standby, it is of no use.

And I wish that the phone manufactures would regognize the units as data carrying devices., and put some serious storage in the units. I use mine phone to carry documents using Bluetooth as connection.

It's not you, I'm just a really slow typer. ;)

I agree about them getting serious on the storage of these devices. Why can "they" put a 20gb hard drive in an MP3 player for $200, but can't put one in a PDA/phone that costs $800+
