Nokia E50 Review

 

The Nokia E50 is an O.K. business phone with good business features, but has a couple flaws that owners of the phone have been able to bring to light lately.

Users have recommended the E60 over the E50, or perhaps a different business device like the Nokia 9500. You will get more business capability out of these phones, and probably a little less frustration
