Nokia E61i

 

Howdy, big boy! At 4.6 x 2.8 x 0.6 inches, the E61i dwarfs most handsets. Luckily, you won't care: Its roomy 2.8-inch screen and comfy keyboard make excellent

Handy thumbnail-driven history viewer in browser. Streams Flash and other videos. Nice collection of business and media apps, including a project team manager and RealPlayer. Almost 11 hours of talk time

So wide it barely feels like a phone. Accessing the microSD slot requires removing backplate. No stereo Bluetooth. Proprietary headphone jack

Nokia E61i (AT&T) review:

 

Back in February, Nokia unveiled three new additions to its E series of business-centric smart phones at the 3GSM World Congress. As with all of Nokia's supercool cell phones and smart phones , the U.S. availability of the models was up in the air, but...

The Nokia E61i features a roomier QWERTY keyboard and adds a 2-megapixel camera. The Symbian smart phone offers integrated Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and robust e-mail options. In addition, the Quickoffice and Nokia Team Office suites are handy tools for the...

The E61i doesn't support U.S. 3G bands or the A2DP Bluetooth profile. The phone's speaker is on the weaker side, and the camera isn't the greatest. The handset is also pricey without the backing of a U.S. carrier.

The Nokia E61i isn't a major upgrade, bringing some minor design improvements and the addition of a camera, but it still remains a powerful smart phone for business users; just be prepared to pay a price.

Nokia E61i review: Lens-wear for the messenger

Nokia E61i

 

Oddly, the E61i also works over 3G data networks, just not ours. It supports only UMTS, not HSDPA, and only on the overseas 2,100-MHz band. That means the otherwise high-flying E61i still kicks it down to EDGE speeds when used Stateside.

Sleek enclosure with comfortable keyboard. Built-in Wi-Fi. Great Web browser. Long battery life

Only supports high-speed UMTS overseas. No stereo Bluetooth support or built-in GPS

Nokia ups the ante with a welcome refresh to last year's well-liked E62 smartphone.

Nokia E61i Review

 

Nokia E61i is an enterprise phone loaded with features. It gives Blackberry handsets some serious competition.

If you are looking for a Communicator style smart phone with hell a lot of options at a affordable price go for this one. Camera is not the best. Battery backup is promising. Very Good blackberry alternative. The Nokia E61i retails at about in Chennai...

Nokia E61i Review

 

The Nokia E61i is a Symbian/S60 smartphone with an emphasis on business. It features a built-in keyboard, 3G cellular-wireless networking, and Wi-Fi. Antoine Wright has a review.

I leave the E61i feeling a bit like it was a great meal but my utinsels were dirty the whole time. The device itself was great. It crashed once, and other than that was very rock solid. I could overlook some of the UI items such as looking for wireless...
