Nokia 5630 as a dongle

I was searching for a good phone for some time and recently I bought a new Nokia 5630 XpressMusic. It contains all the features I wanted and everything is perfectly suiting me. I really love it’s excellent sound quality, Camera, 3G capabilities, Wi-Fi and nice appearence.

In addition to that, I was hoping to buy a dongle to use when I’m at home (in Galle). But my new Nokia 5630 provides that capability as well :). It can act as a dongle (HSDPA). So I activated a data package for my already existing Dialog connection and now using my phone as a perfect dongle. And also it works without any trouble in Ubuntu 9.04. It’s just plug and play.

If I bought a separate dongle, it will cost me nearly 10,000 LKR including the connection. But my Nokia 5630 saved me that amount while providing a great mobile phone experience with all the needed features for me. So if you are looking for a Nokia phone, go for it. It’s just great.

Note : This HSDPA functionality can be found in some other Nokia models as well. Ex : 5320, 5730, 5800, 6120
