Nokia E72 Mobile Phone


For the business users, it's a necessity to stay connected while in or out of the office, like your job never ends. Thanks to handsets like this the new Nokia E72 facilitating companies to constantly keep in touch with their hard working employees even...

Nokia E72


Look at the E72 and you'll like it. Handle the E72 and you'll love it. Nokia's $419 (unlocked, no contract) E72 follows in the footsteps of the lovable E71 with a rock-solid steel chassis built for the businessman. It also hides a hideous and complex...

Extremely attractive design ; BMW build quality ; Rock-solid voice quality and reception ; Fast-loading browser ; Above-average camera ; Responsive navigation

Antiquated S60 interface ; Optical trackpad not useful ; Awkward camera bulge ; Clumsy browser ; Hard-to-use microSD slot

Nokia’s E72 teases with a design that would make most BlackBerry owners drool and dated software that made us cringe.

Nokia E72 (black, Unlocked)


The Nokia N series has been a little bit hit or miss lately, but the company's E series of business smartphones has consistently delivered winners, and it looks like Nokia has another solid player on its hands. The Nokia E72 is the successor to the...

The Nokia E72 brings upgrades such as a faster processor, more memory, and a better camera. The phone's design is both sleek and sturdy. It offers excellent messaging capabilities, 3G support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS

The optical trackpad doesn't work very well. Speakerphone volume is a bit low. It has a lower-resolution screen compared with some of its competitors. Without carrier backing, the E72 carries an expensive price tag

Though the price might be off-putting to many, the Nokia E72 is a well-designed and full-featured messaging smartphone for business users.

Nokia E72 review: The business of messaging


Nokia E72 is one of those handsets everybody is talking about long before their release. There may be nothing much to talk about – after all everyone knows what to expect of the Eseries and they have never let us down. But still savoring the next batch...

The Eseries spirit is all there - and we guess in-house competition is always in the picture. The E72 is bold and impressive, but manages to keep its cool too, as befits a conservative business handset. Armed and dangerous or polite and elaborate - the...

Nokia E72 review


There's always a risk when a high-interest product is announced that by the time it hits shelves its moment has passed. The Nokia E72 has been just such an anticipated smartphone, with eager E71 owners keen to upgrade to the Finns' latest QWERTY...

If you prioritise messaging above all else, though, and want a compact but highly usable device with a strong QWERTY keyboard, the E72 makes an excellent case for itself. We’re not convinced that S60 requires retiring quite yet – though we wouldn’t...

Nokia E72 exhaustively reviewed ahead of launch


Say you've got a Nokia E71. Say, further, that you fully intend to upgrade to the E72 the moment it's available (we can't say we blame you). If you'd like to know more about the phone by the time it arrives on your doorstep than most people do in ...

Nokia N72 review: Controversy all around


Nokia N72 bar-shaped phone is another Nokia smartphone but differs from the latest additions on the shelves of the Nokia smartphones as it runs on Symbian 8.1 OS with 2.8 edition user interface. This transitional system has to offer features from both...

Nokia E72


One of the reasons I love my job is because there's no single answer to "what phone should I get?" The best phone for me may be different from our Editor's Choice, which may be different from what's best for you. So I'm going to make my review of the...

Very elegant. Good call quality. Excellent e-mail capabilities. Free, global GPS navigation

Fuzzy photos. Not a very high-res screen. Ovi App store is a mess ; Watch the Nokia E72 (Unlocked)

Nokia's latest unlocked messaging phone is a very elegant way to get your e-mail, surf the Web, and navigate without having to sign up for a BlackBerry plan.
