Dopod C730 – Two Weeks Later

Since I bought the Dopod C730 two weeks ago, I installed a couple of software – just to make it work like my previous Nokia N80 … But before all that, I first installed a new homescreen / theme to replace the default (i.e. ugly) one. The theme was downloaded from Cuago (see below), but I intended to get some new ones from in near future. Once downloaded, I twisted the default image a bit and that’s why you can see the “M.Y. Phone” there.

The screen is really gorgeous and bright, isn’t it ? So, what’s next ?

As mentioned, to mimic the N80 I installed a few software and configure something first –

For example, the RSS feeds

Then, the mobile Gmail,

And Sudoku from the freeware site – 😎


From the same site, I also downloaded the Screen Capture software from Ilium (that’s why you can see all the screen shots here)

But is the Smartphone really good ? I don’t know yet, I still have something to fix:

  • The Worldmate I bought did not work, and still waiting for a newer version,
  • I still don’t understand some status icons on top of the screen (and it’s not covered in any document and websites)
  • Many times, some programs’ keys are covered by the “Start”, “Contacts” buttons in the bottom of the screen.

Lastly, one more gadget – you really need to buy a Bluetooth Stereo Headset with a good headphone … the sound quality is very good.
