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: 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...

Nokia E66 mini-review on Engadget Mobile

 

Yo, heads up -- the E71's only half of the story with Nokia's new line of business sidekicks. For those of us who bust out T9 text with aplomb, the E66 might be the better option, especially when you factor in its narrower form factor, arguably ...

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 when they

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...

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...

Product Specifications

Whether on the road, in the field, or on the factory floor, mobile workers demand rugged, reliable tools to do their jobs. Bringing updated technologies to the front-line worker, the Intermec 761 mobile computer build on the proven, unprecedented success of the 700 Color Series. Designed from the ground up for use in harsh environments, the 700 device can withstand multiple 6-ft. (1.8m) drops to concrete and is sealed against rain and dust. The ergonomic case design is sculpted and balanced, maximizing user comfort during long-term use. Radio and scanner options are integrated, not add-ons, which means they are tested to the same ruggedness standards, and don't compromise the environmental or functional characteristics of the unit. In addition to the large, brilliant color display, Intel XScale processor, and Microsoft Windows Mobile for Pocket PC, the 700 Series' customer configurable design allows the integration of up to three radios (WLAN, WWAN, Bluetooth) in a single device. On-board wired Ethernet is standard on the 700 Series, and unlike many competitive devices, true Ethernet speeds are maintained. In addition, the built-in Flash ROM folder allows permanent storage of applications, drivers and startup files on non-volatile flash memory. In addition, Intermec's ReadiCare Deployment Services provide WWAN activation, provisioning and logistics control so that the 700 Series customer is up and productive "right out of the box".
