Nokia 3710 Review


Check out this Nokia 3710 review. The Nokia 3710 is targeted to those consumers who need a chic cell phone that offers everything from 3G to complete entertainment, all in style.

Although you get better cell phones for the same price today, those who do not want to go for a touch phone or a smartphone can go for the Nokia 3710. The spacious keypad will be a draw for some people. It is also light in weight (at 94g), has chic...

Nokia 3710


I like the phone because it has a nice big keypad and the screen is lovely and big and the fact that it's a flip phone I don't have to keep locking the keypad

Product Specifications

Go through the offices of medium and large corporations and look at what brand of PC's they use. The choice machine for these companies is HP, and the reason is simple. HP is second to none in the manufacture and support of corporate PC's because they recognize the priorities of your business. Quality, reliability, and manageability are the hallmarks of the HP Vectra line. Add some of the best service and support in the industry and the choice of the Vectra is clear. The VL series uses the powerful Pentium II 400Mhz processor on a 100MHz system bus. To maintain top performance, it has 512K of integrated L2 SRAM cache memory. This model belongs on the desks of software engineers, design staff, and other mission-critical employees. 64MB of SDRAM is sufficient for most tasks, but for your most demanding users it is expandable to vast limits. A huge 6.4 or 10.1GB Ultra ATA/33 hard drive is standard, offering plenty of storage space. The use of fast memory and a high-speed drive controller eliminates the common bottlenecks found in some systems. This system offers full multimedia features, with a quick 32X CD-ROM drive and 16-bit sound. If your plans include multimedia creation, presentations, or Internet content creation, this is the model you should select. The standard that drives many purchasing decisions is not the cost of the computer, but the cost of ownership. That is a feature that the HP Vectra excels in. Offering DMI compliant machines since 1993, HP is the expert in this arena. The Vectra VL 8 is fully DMI 2.0 compliant, it allows your technicians to power up the PC and configure it remotely. It also includes the powerful HP TopTools software that offers a wide range of monitoring and management features. TopTools provides everything from asset management to software distribution, and system maintenance. Some models include a 3Com 10/100Base-T Ethernet adapter. The Vectra VL includes: Windows 95/98 AND Windows NT 4.0, HP TopTools, McAfee VirusScan. If your support people are stretched too thin, then these are the computers your company needs.
