Nokia E71 review: Messenger of steel

 

Following some time off since the E51, the Nokia E-series is back to the shop with a new pet for business-minded users. Nokia E71 seems to have it all to take over and build on the E61 QWERTY messengers' expertise. The suave upgrade is...

Quad-band GSM support ; 3G with HSDPA 3.6Mbps support ; Landscape 2.36" 16M color display of QVGA resolution ; Comfortable full QWERTY keypad ; Convenient business-minded shortcut keys ; Symbian 9.2 OS, S60 UI with FP1 (topped with some FP2 goodies) ;...

Below average camera performance ; Video recording maxes out at QVGA@15fps ; No dedicated camera key ; Smaller display than its predecessor ; Cheap-looking power key ; No RDS for the FM radio

seems like a nice alternative having almost the same feature pack as the Nokia. BlackBerry's proprietary OS is not as widespread as the Symbian S60 but the business applications are all there, so the target audience won't feel deprived. The Bold also...

Nokia E71 and Nokia E66 preview: First look

 

At a London live, Nokia presented the long-awaited E-series newcomers - Nokia E66 and Nokia E71. The two handsets are Nokia craftsmanship at its highest and high-tech goodies galore: auto focus cameras, Wi-Fi, GPS and the power of the latest Symbian...

packs a full hardware QWERTY keypad and its design feels somewhat Blackberry-esque although it's actually a successor of the Nokia E61i. Nokia E71 brings much more style to the E-series with a girth of mere 10mm. It's impressively compact for its form...

E71

 

As Nokia's very first 3G phone with a full QWERTY keyboard, the $500 E71 is an all-around improvement on its predecessor, the E61. It not only has a sleeker and more sophisticated curved design, but it packs a multitude of features ideal for both...

Slim and sophisticated design Web browser easy to use and loads fast

Camera quality mediocre Limited applications for US audience

Unfortunately, the E71 comes at a steep price, as it is not currently offered by any U.S. carriers. You'll have to drop around $500 for it, so it is important to evaluate exactly what you want out of it. But overall, the E71 shines as a stylish device...

Nokia E71

 

The slick, silvery handset feels quite luxurious. It's slim but solid at 4.49 by 2.24 by .4 inches and 4.4 oz, with a grooved stainless steel back and small, domed white keys. You'll need precise fingers to enjoy this keypad, but it's as sharp as an...

Absolutely gorgeous. Excellent Web browser. Microsoft Exchange and document support

Poor camera. Music and video players aren't great. No HTML e-mail support

The beautiful Nokia E71 makes an excellent mobile office, and is a good unlocked alternative to the Blackberry Bold.

Nokia E71x (AT&T) Review

 

At $99.99, the E71x is a great bargain smart phone. It's thin but chock-full of the features mobile professionals and prosumers are looking for, including 3G and Wi-Fi, GPS navigation, and robust e-mail support. Additionally, the device has excellent...

Stunning brushed-metal design, Good Web browser, HSDPA and Wi-Fi, Integrated GPS, Inexpensive

Nokia E71 Review

 

Nokia's E-series started its life-span in 2005, being announced as a “business-oriented” device. The main purpose of these devices is to help you organize your day and work with e-mail. Like the ones from the N-series, the E-series runs on the Symbian...

Nokia E71

 

With its combination of excellent features and performance, matched with sleek design and its affordable price tag, Nokia's E71 manages to outshine recently released smartphones as our business phone of choice.

Slim design with full QWERTY keyboard, Feature-rich, including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, HSDPA and GPS, Voice, messaging and productivity tools are also strong, Excellent battery life

Display is on the small side, Keyboard is a little cramped
