Nokia E61i Review

 

Maintaining the continuity of its business phone E series with lots and powerful devices, Nokia launched the "promised" updated version of the successful E61. This time the new E61i model got the long expected camera module that lacked in the older E61...

The best thing about this phone is the simply fact that it exists:) The whole range of connectivity tools and the big battery recommends it as the number one business tool at the moment. Even the design is eye-catching, big, bulky and slim as it is....

Lack of a secondary camera for video calling may be a major drawback for those that like this feature. Also the metallic part of the phone is too easy to scratch and will make your phone look very bad after only a few days of use (even if you take...

When it comes to phones, I am pretty transient. Over the past few years I have owned a score of devices until the limitations of each one eventually forcing me to move on to something new. But my luck seems to have changed. The E61 is pretty close to...

Nokia E61 - Smartphone Reviews by Mobile Tech Review

 

Thin is still in, but those of us who wanted a sleek and slim design in a smartphone, especially one with a QWERTY keyboard were out of luck until the Motorola Q came out on Verizon a few months back. What if Windows Mobile isn't to your liking, or you...

Great looks, durable metal body, WiFi, EDGE, miniSD expansion slot, supports all major push email solutions as well as non-push IMAP and POP3 email. Fantastic web browser, good battery life and excellent display ;

Keyboard travel is nearly nil, sometimes flaky scheduled IMAP email checking

High style, a QWERTY keyboard, WiFi and durability have finally converged, thanks to the Nokia E61. The phone is stunning looking and happily it works just as well as it looks. It beats the BlackBerry on expansion, style, durability and multimedia...

It is inevitable that a phone that doesn't look like a phone and is somewhat larger than your average phone, causes reactions. Some people may love the product exactly for the same reasons than other people dislike it. We fall into the category of...

Nokia E61

 

The Nokia E61 is designed in the familiar style of today's most popular mobile email devices. Yet it is incredibly slim and packed with powerful new functionality.

The reviewed unit had an early firmware version but it was VERY STABLE. The phone didn't crash or hang even ONCE during the entire test period. It seems that both the Symbian OS 9.1 and the 3rd edition of the S60 platform are now fully mature are ready...
