3 X-Series Gold review
3’s X-Series finally delivers the type of rich 3G applications phone networks have been promising for years. The bundled Skype software allows you to make VoIP calls just like normal phone calls, and the sound quality is surprisingly clear. Install Orb (www.orb.com) software on your PC, and you can access your PC’s files through your phone, which is ideal for that document you forgot to email home before leaving the office. Web surfing is easy on the Nokia N73’s 2.4in screen (the N73 is currently the only phone that supports the X-Series), podcasts are swiftly downloaded and IM with MSN Messenger contacts is simple. The flat-fee data access comes in at just £10 per month on top of your 3 contract.
