The first thing you'll notice about the N73 is its active matrix display. With an adjustable display brightness feature, and support for up to 262,144 colors within 240 x 320 pixels, it's perfect for viewing documents, images, and Web pages. A high-quality handsfree speakerphone allows for conference calls and multitasking (combining voice calls with calendar viewing, SMS, and email), while the XHTML browser allows for convenient Internet use. The N73 sports a user-friendly and intuitive interface while maintaining a small, slim, and sleek design.
The N73's user interface revolves around two soft keys with a five-way scroll. The two soft keys can be programmed for shortcut access to features like the calendar application, the camera mode, Bluetooth wireless connection, or other useful applications.
The N73 sports advanced voice features that are especially useful for heavy phone users--at home or at work. Key calling features include voice dialing and voice command--both great features for when you're on the road and need to access phone menus or phone numbers while keeping both hands on the wheel--as well as Nokia PoC (push to talk), a convenient business feature that keeps you in touch with a simple push of a button. The N73 also features an advanced contacts database with support for multiple device and email details per entry while a call log keeps lists of your dialed, received, and missed calls. The N73 brings select desk phone functions to your mobile phone including call forwarding, holding, conference calls, and more.
Messaging, Internet, and Tools
If needs be, the N73 can be a business workhorse. The N73 also comes stock with support for leading push email clients, giving you easy email access in real time. There's even an XHTML browser for convenient Internet viewing, and you'll be able to load pages fast with the N73's EDGE data compatibility.
Connectivity with compatible PCs and supported devices is simple and easy with the N73's infrared, Bluetooth wireless technology, and USB cable compatibility. Other built-in tools include an organizer feature that includes contacts with images, a calendar with an accept/reject function for meeting requests, and to-do list. There's also a built-in office application viewer for documents such as Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Excel attachments (Microsoft Office, 2000, XP and 2003). The N73 even sports a unique feature that allows you to search for files or content (including messages, emails, and notes). Lastly, the N73 also comes with the ability to synchronize with Microsoft Outlook and Lotus Notes--a feature that allows you to have the latest meetings, contacts, and notes on hand.
Imaging and Entertainment
When it's time to take a break from work, a built-in MP3/AAC player, a 3.2 megapixel camera, and a hot-swappable memory card slot offer plenty of opportunities for recreation. And because the N73 supports Java based programs, you can play and enjoy Java based games and applications.
