Nokia E70 Cell Phone (GSM, Bluetooth, 2MP, 64MB,


At first glance the Nokia E70 doesn't look like a PDA phone at all: It's an unassuming candy bar-style handset, with a smallish 2.1-inch screen and a tiny numeric keypad. But flip the keypad up, and the E70 reveals its charms-namely, a unique and very...

Nokia E70 review: Folding typewriter

Nokia E70


Simply put, Nokia's E70 is one of the most advanced, innovative mobile phones on the market today.  The E70's fold-out QWERTY keyboard harkens back to the design of Nokia's 6800 messaging phone released in 2003, but its feature set is pure cutting-edge...

Review: Nokia E70


Providing a great alternative to those that want a QWERTY keyboard like the E61, but don't like the added bulk, the Nokia E70 is a fully featured device that can still pass as a regular phone when the need arises.

QWERTY keyboard, high resolution display, capable camera

Mislabeling of keyboard, lag when changing from portrait to landscape mode

The Nokia E70 is fully loaded and it's a fantastic handset.

Nokia E70


At 127 grams in weight, the E70 is about average for a 3G phone, but not many 3G handsets squeeze in this many features. Talktime is 3.6-7.3 hours on GSM, with up to 9 days standby. Expected to be available from Q1 2006.

The Nokia E70 is a good value for the money if you want the smallest possible smartphone with a full keyboard. The product is priced higher than many competitive products that come with traditional Treo/Blackberry-style keyboards. In any case, the...

Nokia E70


The Nokia E70: The all-in-one messaging deviceFeatures include 2 megapixel camera, USB 2.0, Bluetooth, miniSD slot, and WiFi.

However, the keyboard was rather uncomfortable to use. It did not really respond like the keys of the preceding flip-keyboard devices. Even the numberpad was rather thin and difficult to use as my fingers kept hitting all the wrong buttons and made a...
