Nokia E66 review: Clean-cut business tool

 

It's been a while since mobile phones became an essential business tool and a huge number of devices are being specially designed for the purpose (not even mentioning the camera-free versions of some handsets). Nokia Eseries...

Quad-band GSM support ; 3G with HSDPA 3.6Mbps ; 2.4" 16M-color display of QVGA resolution ; Shortcut keys mean business ; Symbian 9.2 OS, S60 UI with FP1 (topped with some FP2 goodies) ; Accelerometer sensor for screen auto-rotation ; 369 MHz ARM 11...

Average camera performance ; Video recording maxes out at QVGA@15fps ; No camera geotagging ; Cheap-looking power key ; Office document editing not available ; No RDS in radio

Nokia E66 lacks the full QWERTY keypad of its sibling- the E71 but still packs some serious business power. The great looks and the more than decent multimedia capabilities are also a welcome bonus. Those working in camera-restricted areas are probably...

Review: Nokia E66

 

The smoked chrome accents and glass buttons on Nokia's newest business handset make you wonder what kind of business, exactly, the Finns had in mind...

A magnificent piece of hardware, with Vertu-level build quality. Nice form factor: thin enough to disappear in your pocket but large enough for a 2.5-inch screen. Upgraded processor runs S60 even more snappily than the N95 8GB. Automatic screen...

Mullet mode adds yet another level of menus under which to bury functions. Arrgh! Swanky metal backplate gets hand-scaldingly hot. Road warriors will scoff at the battery life: around three hours of talk time (con Bluetooth). Attention Finland: You’re...

When it comes to business phones, gizmos are nice but functionality is what matters above all. That's why products aimed the suitspack a lot of features that are often unnecessary for the general customer, and place a premium on battery life. These...

Nokia E66

 

While we like the E71 better, the E66 is a great smartphone with class leading features. If you want the functionality of a business phone without the bulk of a PDA form factor, the E66 is the phone you've been looking for.

Solid and attractive build, HSDPA, Wi-Fi and A-GPS, Excellent productivity tools

Smaller battery compared to E71, Accelerometer can be a nuisance

Nokia E66 Review

 

Nokia's Eseries is one of the most appealing handset line-ups, which targets businessmen on the go. Usually, those interested in such business devices aren't looking for any 'wow' factor or high-specs like excellent music sound or high quality camera,...

Unfortunately, the main attractions of E66 are hidden under the hood. Design cannot be added here; even if E66 is no ugly phone, it doesn't impress either. Some of the best features of the handset include: HSDPA and Wi-Fi connectivity, built-in GPS...

I wouldn't mention the design here even if it needs some improvements. Instead, I'm so frustrated by the low talk time offered by the 1000 mAh battery. Camera could also be better or not at all. I would've also preferred a larger display for emails and...

Nokia E66 US Edition- Phone Reviews by Mobile Tech Review

 

It's raining Nokia S60 smartphones here lately, and we were lucky enough to receive the US version of the recently announced but not yet released Nokia E66 for review. The US version is a quad band unlocked GSM phone with US 3G HSDPA on the 850/1900MHz...

Has complete support for US bands, including 3G. The NAM model has a US warranty. Extremely attractive design and quite thin. WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, 3G, FM radio, MP3 player and a 3 megapixel camera-- the phone has all. Nice use of the accelerometer for...

Reception is just average (usually Nokia phones have very, very strong reception). Camera images aren't very good

There's a lot to like here, and the phone has been well-received in our offices. It's very good looking, extremely pocketable and slim. With WiFi and GPS, it's a Swiss Army Knife of a phone, and it's hard to beat S60 3rd Edition's speed, features and...
