T-Mobile Nokia E73 Mode: Cost and demo of included apps and games
As a follow up to my Nokia E73 Mode review I wanted to go into a bit more detail about the included games and applications. You may want to go into each one and try out the demo before attempting to remove the app or making a purchase of the full version. Some apps can be removed while others keep you locked out of doing so. They all have some kind of subscription or single fee to purchase and there are a couple that I am thinking about buying for my own E73 Mode.
TeleNav makes an excellent GPS navigation solution and a version is loaded on the E73 Mode. It is similar to the AT&T Navigator software included on the E71x. I find it to be useful, but am personally satisfied with the latest Ovi Maps and Google Maps clients so will not be subscribing at this time. You can use TeleNav for one day for $2.99 or subscribe for $9.99 per month.
Where is another application included on the E73 Mode that allows you to search for different places in a pretty slick interface. Where is also a subscription service that is available for $2.99 per month. It too can be removed from the E73 Mode using the standard Remove option in the application shortcut view.
Six games are included on the Nokia E73 Mode and all can be purchased either as a one time fee or monthly subscription. I took a look at each in my video above and here is the cost breakdown for them.
- Who Wants to be a Millionaire 2010: $2.99/month or $6.99 one time fee
- Guitar Hero Mobile 5: $3.99/month or $9.99 one time fee
- Block Breaker $2.99/month or $6.99 one time fee
- The Sims 3: $2.99/month or $6.99 one time fee
- Collapse Chaos: $2.99/month or $6.99 one time fee
- Pac-Man & Ms. Pac-Man: $2.99/month or $6.99 one time fee
I may purchase Collapse Chaos and Pac-Man for myself since I found the games enjoyable and $6.99 each doesn’t seem too bad.
Do any of these applications or games appeal to you?
