PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless The crown jewel of Nokia right now is the E51 and Hi-Mobile.net sent us one over for a review. Some of you will be surprised by this comment as there are other and more powerful Nokia phones out there, but there's a reason for it. Read on to read it.

On the box?

Nokia ship phones on boxes now? Cool for people of smaller stature I guess?

I try not to pick at the grammar of non-native English speakers, but this is the second article I've read in the last few days (tho one might have been a blog entry) where Eugenia has used "on" instead of "in".

And you will read many more. I am not likely to change the way I write. Neither anyone is going to proof read around here.

There's no need to. Most of us get the message in your reviews without any problem at all.

However, when some pick at the way you write just take it to mean that your review was well received and they couldn't pick at the subject.

Good job.

Don't care about whiney people, I think it's just simply amazing that you find it in yourself to even write articles for free for others to read ;) And I atleast haven't seen you spreading any FUD or such here so I have nothing to complain. Sure, I can sometimes disagree with you about something but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate you contributing your time to writing stuff for me to read ;)

Oh, and on another note..I find it rather stupid that a camera phone with high mega-pixel camera doesn't have a flash :O I personally wouldn't touch such a phone even with a stick. And I was just wondering that it'd be cool if someone made a camera phone which would take a picture the instant you press the button instead of waiting like 5 seconds before launching. You always miss the best shots when you gotta wait... :/ Some might argue that that's what real digital cameras are for but well...not everyone always has a digital camera in their pocket whereas almost everyone has their phone with them all day long.

All you need to remember is:

in - inside
on - on top

vs

on - onside <- not a real word
in - in top <- not a real phrase

This is something *basic*. Which means that if I still confuse it after 10+ years of living in English-speaking countries, it means that this is how my brain is wired (in conjunction to how my native language works), and so that won't change easily. So don't waste your time. I don't.
