Nokia E71

 

Access to product upgrades are one of the perks of being in the tech industry. If you've come across a great product, you can't wait to see what the company's going to come up with next. For instance, Nokia's E61 and then the E62 made Symbian a force...

The images appear noisy and riddled with annoying purple and blue watercolor effects. The graininess is quite evident, except perhaps when the pictures are viewed on the handset's smaller display (as against its native size on the PC). The colors are...

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...

Nokia E71x (black, AT&T)

 

It's always been a shame that Nokia's E series of smartphones (as well as the Nokia N series for that matter) rarely make it to U.S. carriers since they offer great business features in slick designs. However, AT&T customers got good news at CTIA 2009...

The Nokia E71x is affordably priced and offers a long list of features, including 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 3.2-megapixel camera, as well as support for AT&T's various services. The QWERTY smartphone is very sleek with high-quality construction.

The GPS initially took a while to find our location. The keyboard layout is somewhat cramped.

Affordably priced, the Nokia E71x for AT&T is an incredible value for business users and consumers looking for a robust messaging smartphone.

Nokia E71x (AT&T)

 

A sleek and versatile smart phone that is the thinnest handset in the United States.

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

2.5mm headphone jack ; Mediocre 3.2-MP camera ; No FM tuner

Sending off e-mails and SMS/MMS messages becomes more efficient with the E71x’ autocomplete option, which performed well on our tests. The phone guesses what word you’re typing; if correct, you can click the space bar to insert it into your message. If...

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 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...

Symbian-Handy mit GPS, WLAN und Tastatur: Nokia E71

 

'Das Nokia E71 sieht aus, als ob es in keiner Vorstandssitzung fehlen d\xfcrfte. Hinzu kommt eine umfangreiche Ausstattung, die keine W\xfcnsche offen l\xe4sst. Ob es auch im Arbeitsleben den Erwartungen gerecht werden kann, zeigt der Test.'
