No camera is definitely needed option for people in businesses that don't allow them. This phone will do well.

Good consideration on Nokia's part. Looking forward to more releases of camera-less mobiles from Nokia for choice and affordability.

personally i think more no-camera variants are needed - ideally, all phones should be made so that cameras could be detached. I think the camera-less E51 will sell very well with people who work in a camera-free environment like i do (and there are quite a few out there - if there weren't, blackberry would've phased out such phones a long time ago.) All props to Nokia to make the brave decision to cater to this market.

Only losers use the camera on phone, please the Image quality can never ever beat that of a dedicated camera. Those that use them to that pictures are losers.

If they are releasing a phone with different features, why don't they call it something slightly different like E52 or whatever.

This Phone is for those who belive to use there phone for business purpose yes i do agree in big Companies you are not allowed to take a camera phone because of securities reasons.If any one wants to buy a camera phone go for N95/E90 y debating without brain about the product .

Cool. The price now to have a wi-fi s60 phone now will be 250 euro!! E-51 price was 350 euro + taxes and arrived at the price of 300 euros. That mean the non camera E-51 will be 250 euro with taxes maybe less.

In army or companies that dont allow camera phones(like Honda) its the best choise.
