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...

AT&T Hobbles Perfectly Good Smart Phone


If it wasn't for those meddling carriers, this would be one of the most perfect phones ever tested.

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...

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...

Nokia E71 (gray, unlocked)


It may be that the Nokia E series sometimes suffers from Jan Brady syndrome, as it gets overshadowed by a flashier member of its family--the Nokia N series (aka Marcia Brady). But the E series is just as bright and deserves some recognition too....

The Nokia E71 features a slim design, while still managing to have a full QWERTY keyboard. The Symbian smartphone is stocked with features, including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and U.S. 3G support. Voice, messaging, and productivity tools are also strong.

The E71 is expensive, and the display is on the smaller side. The keyboard is a bit cramped as well.

Mobile professionals who need a powerful but sleek messaging-centric smartphone will be well-served by the Nokia E71; just be prepared to pay a price.

Nokia E71 Review


A sleek and versatile smart phone that lets you swap between work and play.

Stunning brushed metal design, Exceptional Web browser, HSDPA connectivity, Integrated GPS, Unlocked quad-band phone

2.5mm headphone jack, A few useless features for U.S. customers, Mediocre e-mail system for those not using Exchange

We really appreciated the four shortcut buttons just above the keyboard for quick access to the home screen, our calendar, the address book, and our messages. Around those shortcut keys are four buttons, two for placing and ending calls, and two...
