The first thing I bought for my Nokia N8 was a screen protector. It was a cheap, RM10.00 piece of sticky plastic pasted on the N8 screen. First, the clear display was blurred by the screen protector. But I thought I could live with that as long I can protect my N8 screen from scratches. I put my phone in my pocket with my keys and coins … sure enough after a few days, there were scratches on the screen protector.

I said to myself, “see … the screen protector is doing its job, preventing the keys and coins from scratching the display”.

After a few more days, after hundreds of phone calls later, my oily cheek started to weaken the screen protector adhesive and a few days after that the screen protector just peeled off in my pocket.

Not satisfied with the “cheapo” screen protector, I searched the net for a good screen protector for my N8.

And … this is what I found!

I don’t need a screen protector after all. The N8 is fitted with a gorilla glass which is very scratch resistant and the anodised aluminium body is hard enough to withstand the daily abuse of keys and coins in my pocket.

I have not found any information on the glass used for the N8 camera … hopefully it’s gorilla glass as well.

The E75 is expected to retail around  US$580, so that would make  this the new E series flagship model.

While the info on the E75 is still stealthy, I came across this one … another slider.

It’s the 5730 XpressMusic line from Nokia. Go over to mobile-review and check out a full review with photos and screen shots … very impressive. The one specification that really excite me is the Carl-Zeiss branding stamped on the 3.2MP camera. The name alone says that it’s going to take great images. 

Ah well … I already spent my money on the E71, so I’ll just check this out just as a cat, msatisfying my curiosity.
