I recently purchased my first Raspberry Pi Model B+ board, with the hope I could re-tweak my interest in Python programming and Linux from yesteryear and it got me thinking about my old Nokia N900, which I had spent so many hours, days, weeks tinkering on, and which brought about this website.

OMG it’s HUGE!

“Oh my god it’s huge!”, are the five words I hear whenever I pull my latest mobile phone out of my pocket, but hey I am no stranger to huge phones. If I think back to when I had my Nokia N900 everyone saw it as a huge brick phone.

Using the Nokia Bluetooth Headset BH-217.

I have had the Nokia Bluetooth Headset BH-217 for a week now on trial from WomWorld/Nokia and I must say I am impressed with it’s call quality, ease of use, the size and weight of the device as it is hardly noticeable when on your ear. It can be worn on either ear by turning or adjusting the plastic ear hooks.
