Nokia E6 Symbian Anna Smartphone


Nokia's E71 and E72 have been big landmarks for the Finish mobile giant as they helped cement the company's stand in the business phone segment and gave rivals like BlackBerry a run for their money. While the E72 still remains a good buy, Nokia have...

For a street price of Rs.17,999, Nokia’s E6 offers tremendous value that makes it a very good buy for anyone looking for a smart yet trendy QWERTY phone. The touch screen is just an added bonus. Considering its predecessor, the E72, was launched above...

Nokia E6 review: The E spirit


Don't let your E71/72 smartphone read this. No, it won't have a heart attack or anything. But you don't want it suddenly feeling sad and useless. You certainly realize the E71/E72 duo is getting old and rusty. Like it or not, it's time to move on. The...

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support ; Penta-band 3G with 10.2 Mbps HSDPA and 2 Mbps HSUPA ; Symbian Anna OS ; Messenger bar, stainless steel body, four-row QWERTY keyboard ; 2.46" 16M-color capacitive TFT touchscreen of 640 x 480 pixel resolution; Gorilla...

Symbian Anna is still catching up with Android and iOS ; The tiny touchscreen has no room for big fingers ; Fixed-focus camera ; Relatively limited 3rd party software availability

The Nokia E6 will not take No for an answer. A super crisp VGA touchscreen, the finessed Symbian Anna, the strong messenger bloodline and the stainless steel armor are a tempting combination. The package will make long-time Eseries users feel right at...

Nokia E6 Review


BlackBerry may be the name associated with QWERTY messaging phones, but there's a vocal cadre of Nokia users all too keen to talk about the merits of the Finnish company's keyboard-blessed candybars. The E72 met with mixed reactions, failing to quite...

The Symbian experience continues to get refined – Nokia tells us the upcoming “Belle” update will be even more impressive – but it’s no great surprise that, from the perspective of the mainstream market, the platform has had its day. With Nokia itself...

Nokia E6 hands-on: First look


The E6 is Nokia's latest business offer and it has just landed in our office. It's the company's first smartphone running the new Symbian Anna OS out of the box. The E6 is a touch phone with a QWERTY keyboard and it even has a higher pixel density than...

It’s been a while since last saw a hope for the Symbian OS. Nokia’s move to Windows Phone made everyone think it’s going nowhere. Well, it’s true that Symbian is a dead end, but there’s still potential and Symbian Anna promises to utilize it.

Nokia C6-01 Review


The Nokia C6-01 may have been the “low end” device at Nokia World 2010, but that doesn't mean there's nothing to recommend it. Packing one of Nokia's new ClearBlack AMOLED displays and a compact metal chassis, it slots in underneath the businesslike C7...

Nokia faces the same hurdles with Symbian^3 on this handset that we covered for the N8 and C7, but the C6-01 also offers less in the way of balancing out the usability compromise. If it were our money, we’d spend a little more and pick the C7; while...

Nokia C6-01 review: Clear as black


The Nokia C6-01 comes in as a reasonably priced and well-built smartphone with great all-round connectivity and a unique feature to set it apart from rivals. The ClearBlack display can actually give Nokia quite an edge if it lives up to the...

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support ; Quad/Penta-band 3G with 10.2 Mbps HSDPA and 2 Mbps HSUPA support ; 3.2" 16M-color ClearBlack AMOLED capacitive touchscreen of 640 x 360 pixel resolution ; 8 megapixel fixed-focus camera with dual-LED flash and 720p...

Disappointing battery life ; Symbian^3 is still behind Android and iOS usability (mostly in text input and web browsing) ; The camera is a fixed-focus unit, tends to oversharpen images by default ; No office document editing (without a paid upgrade) ;...

Symbian hasn’t seen any groundbreaking changes in its recent history and Anna isn't one either - like the jump from ^1 to ^3, it's an incremental update that improves things but leaves some rough edges untouched.

Nokia C6 review: A playful character


Yesterday's high-end is the new midrange we like to say. The Nokia C6 has almost exactly the same features as the Nokia N97 mini but hangs a big Sale sign. Time to shop for high-end features off high street. The C-series are trying to distill the Nokia...

3.2" 16M-color resistive touchscreen of 640 x 360 pixel resolution ; Symbian OS 9.4 with S60 5th edition UI ; Slide-out four-row full QWERTY keyboard ; ARM 11 434MHz CPU ; Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE ; Tri-band 3G with 3.6Mbps HSDPA support ; 5 megapixel...

Display performs poorly under direct sunlight ; The S60 touch UI is clunky ; Doesn’t charge off USB ; Average loudspeaker performance ; No DivX or XviD video support out-of-the-box ; No office document editing (without a paid upgrade) ; No camera lens...

It may look like the same old same old prima facie, but that's exactly what the C series are all about. They are just not the kind of phones to set the place on fire. It's a lineup aimed at the mass market and it doesn't need inspiration and creativity...

Nokia E6 (Unlocked)


The E6 is a quad-band EDGE (850/900/1800/1900 MHz) and quintuple-band HSDPA 10.2 (850/900/1700/1900/2100 MHz) device with 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi. That gives you plenty of options for data connectivity no matter where in the world you are. You can also use...

Very sharp screen. Quality feel. Powerhouse camera and HD camcorder

Buggy Bluetooth stack. Symbian OS's prognosis is terminal

The Nokia E6 is a quality unlocked smartphone with a beautiful, ultra-sharp touch screen. Just be aware that Nokia will soon abandon the Symbian OS in favor of Windows Phone 7.

Nokia C6 (Unlocked)


The C6 is a quad-band GSM (850/900/1800/1900 MHz) and quad-band HSDPA 3.6 (850/900/1900/2100 MHz) device with 802.11b/g Wi-Fi. That means it works with both AT&T and T-Mobile SIM cards, plus prepaid cards here and overseas, although you will only see...

Low price for an unlocked smartphone. Comfortable, slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Free GPS navigation

Sluggish. Dated, overly complex OS. Stubborn touch screen. Muffled voice quality

The Nokia C6 shows that the former heavyweight Finnish manufacturer still has plenty to learn when it comes to designing a proper touch-screen smartphone.

Nokia E6 Review


With its QWERTY keyboard, smaller, but sharper screen, as well as classical Nokia business series form-factor, the Nokia E6 might just provoke some nostalgic feelings amongst its targeted audience, and ultimately, end up in the pockets of a good number...
