Nokia E51 review: Connecting business

 

Nokia offers a wide range of Eseries business handsets, including Communicators and enhanced messaging devices of different form factors. Each E series phone is optimized for different types of business users, but all feature the...

Quad-band GSM/3G (with HSDPA 3.6 Mbps), EDGE and GPRS support ; Wi-Fi, VoIP over WLAN ; Symbian 9.2 OS Series 60 3rd edition UI with Feature Pack 1 ; 12 mm slim, elegant design ; 130 MB onboard memory, expandable via microSD cards (up to 4 GB), hot...

2 megapixel camera with no autofocus, nor flash ; Extremely hard-to-press volume rocker, power button and voice recorder key ; Stale multimedia interface ; Cannot edit office documents ; Doesn't charge when connected via USB ; Voice dial works well...

Although the two handsets have quite a lot in common in terms of design, the new E51 isn't exactly a chip off the old block

Many of the mobile unit manufacturers dedicate a lot of effort to developing phones, targeted at business users. So is the E-series of Nokia, which has been created for and is intended to encompass the above circles. After the brief introduction it is...

Here we review the Nokia E51 with emphasis on the design and the user interface of the Nokia phone and everything that the Nokia E51 has to offer

One thing about the Nokia E71 is that it looks so much like your traditional Nokia mobile phone with the standard keypad and the signature softkey panel. This phone stands out to prove that there is nothing traditional about it. The phone is not quite...

Nokia E51 Review

 

One of the latest Nokia Eseries' handsets available on the market, Nokia E51 is the perfect successor of the older E50. Furthermore, Nokia E51 comprises all the E90 Communicator's technical features in a slim candy-bar design. Based on Symbian...

There are many key features that Nokia E51 embeds, such as: HSDPA, WiFi, Bluetooth v2.0 with A2DP, fast user interface, powerful CPU, microSD card, Symbian 9.2 OS Series 60 3rd edition UI with Feature Pack 1. Also, the fact that the phone doesn't...

Maybe the phone should've been launched without a module camera or, at least, a better one could've made a difference. A longer talk time is also needed to maximize E51's functionality. Some small improvements should've been added, such as: possibility...

The Nokia E51 first came out in September last year, it already got my attention. After quite sometime, I finally got myself a unit and here's my verdict.

Nokia E51 - Smartphone Reviews by Mobile Tech Review

 

Nokia introduced the Nokia E51 last fall in European markets and now you can buy the phone from online importers and even big name stores like Staples (might be online only) in the US. Though running on the same OS and platform (Symbian 9 and S60),...

Stylish design, good build quality, and small and lightweight. Very good voice quality and reception. Great browser and email support. Office Suite applications are big plus for corporate users. Plenty of multimedia applications to keep your down time...

EDGE only in the US. Shoulder keys are hard to press and so are the side buttons that are covered by ruggedized rubber. Camera is sub par

It’s a shame that no US carrier is offering the Nokia E51 as it fills a market segment where smartphone users don’t necessarily want to carry a large E90 or a wide E61. The slim, small and sexy design certainly adds a new look to the Eseries, and turns...

Review: Nokia E51

 

While it isn't a beauty queen, Nokia's new E51 smartphone comes packed with features like WiFi and 3G data access, a QVGA screen, and a 2MP camera - all for an affordable price. Brad gives it a thorough thrashing in this review and comes out impressed.

I first bought a Motorola mobile. Returned it in 15 hours & then went in for the Nokia E51. A very very easy to use good mobile & my observations are as follows.

The Nokia E51 retails at Rs 14,699; it is, we think, a must-buy.
