Quickie: Nokia E73 (Mode)

December 6, 2010

Back in June I received a Nokia E73 from the friendly people at T-Mobile – basically a variation on the excellent Nokia E72. I used it briefly but got interrupted by the arrival of other things. More after the break…

Nokia E72 vs. Nokia X6 camera

June 11, 2010

E72 sample pictures (slide show):

X6 sample pictures (slide show):

The Nokia E72 and the Nokia X6 have a lot in common despite being very different devices. They arguably represent the best QWERTY non-touch business phone and best touch media-centric device currently available from the lovely folks in Espoo.

Both are feature-packed, reasonably-priced Symbian smartphones with nice cameras, and follow in the footsteps of good devices with disappointing cameras, namely the Nokia E71 and the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic. More after the break…

About the Nokia N8

April 28, 2010

Nokia N8

Congratulations, Nokia. The brouhaha surrounding the Nokia N8 is almost as epic as the recent kerfuffle about the iPhone HD (my nomenclature). Fantastic PR Job!

What do you mean that “leak” was not intentional? Oh well, any advertising is good advertising…

So, about the N8. Color me cautiously thrilled. The short of it is that the hardware is spot on (finally), but the verdict is still out on the software (predictably). Or maybe I’m just a sucker for a nice cameraphone :)

Life with the Nokia E72

February 21, 2010

I’ve been using the Nokia E72 as my primary business phone for about a month now, and of course it’s been a huge improvement over my standard-issue BlackBerry :)

While the E72 build quality is very good, it’s not as solid as the other Eseries devices I’ve played with. The battery door feels somewhat loose, and it’s easy to push the release button by accident. There’s also some light leaking from the edges of the keys surrounding the D-pad. Still, the materials used (such as stainless steel) are really nice…

Unboxing the Nokia E72

January 21, 2010

So you’re a suit looking for a non-touch business phone? Well it’s simple, really. You can either be a sheep and get a BlackBerry, or you can be a wolf and get this Nokia E72 :)

Of course, this assumes your IT minions support Exchange Server in a addition to BlackBerry Enterprise Server – if not, find another job!

When the E72 was announced last summer, my interest was immediately piqued. It follows in the footsteps of one of my favorite non-touch Symbian devices, the awesome E75, while using the same BlackBerry-like form factor as the excellent E71

Nokia E72 and Nokia 5530 in pictures

November 11, 2009

Every once in a while I run into an interesting device that I have not used yet, and I always take a few pictures.

During my hands on with the Nokia Booklet 3G, I came across the Nokia E72, successor to the E71. Check out the pictures above…
