The E51 and the likes are s60 which means they are smartphones and they are open to applications which can manipulate internal settings...something phones like the 6500 can't do.
For example, if you record a phone call with the 6500 a beep is heard every few seconds...which makes the other person know they are being recorded and there's absolutely nothing you can do about it. With the E51 and other s60 phones, the built-in recorder does beep but you can install 3rd party recording applications which will override the built in recorder and allow you to record phone calls without the other person knowing they are being recorded.
This is just an example of the differences between regular phones like the 6500 and smart phones like the E51.
i plan to buy this phone in a couple of days how is this compared to 6500 slide? i have one and im planing to sell it shud i keep it or buy an e51 plz answer
luis, 30 Dec 2008Well I havenīt E51 I still keep my 5700, Iīm not able to upgrade my firmware but I can live wi... moreLUIS it's always good to see you.
I'm glad I made the plunge in getting the E51. It was worth it.
Funny though there is something about 6230 which to me stands out over every other phone. It's doesn't have Wi-Fi, 3G or the likes BUT the features it has are rock bottom solid and it will always be a legendary phone. Afterall, Nokia themselves said it's precision.
LUIS, I am supposed to be getting the E71 early 2009 but I may keep my E51 for a long time just the same as I love it.
When you get your N79 please use it to take some photos of you and your beloved girlfriend and show off the photos to me (smile).
Peace and love for the new year.

azaman, 26 Dec 2008Hey Original_Jamaican! I really enjoy reading each of your comments and answers. Thanks a lot.... moreTo AZAMAN:
I'm sorry about the delay in reply. I have been so busy.
To be honest I have not seen any changes in firmware 220.34.37. The overall navigation seems faster and that's about it.
I was hoping the ringing volume would have been increased, the greenish tint removed from the camera and more clarity from the camera photos...The old Nokia 6630, which have a 1MP camera still takes better photos than all these 2MP cameras Nokia have been releasing. To be honest, I think even my old 6230 VGA camera can compete with the E51. However, I have beared in mind that this is a business class phone so I won't debate too much on the camera (even though the 6230 is also a business class phone)...however, I will have a case in mentioning that most of the N series camera still isn't on par with the 6630 and it's 1MP camera...then again this is the E series forum so I won't debate on that either.
It seems like the lens in 2004 were at the top as both the 6230 and 6630 were both released in that year. If you want superior camera quality these days you have to look to phones like the N95 and N82 but then that's another story as these phones are bulky, heavy and a tad bit slower than E51 and these later S60 phones.
One thing I must commend on E51's camera is the speed. It's unbelievably fast!!!!!! A photo is captured in less than a second. It took my 6300 3-5 seconds to capture a photo...there goes S40 being faster than S60...not anymore.
In all fairness, the E51's camera isn't the worst and it's certainly NOT the best but I guess it would be fair to say it's good and I will leave it at that.
AZAMAN, I'm sorry I strayed a bit but just felt like I needed to vent my feelings in regards to Nokia's mysterious cameras.
AZAMAN, in regards to the changes in the updated firmware, I am yet to find a changelog which states the bug fixes etc. Once I find it I will post it here for you and others to see. Please, if you are curious about anything else don't be afraid to let me know.
Hi every one i have the E51 its a masterpiece but i have a little problem with my browser it was working great but than no text shows up when i open any web page it shows every thing except the text.
please help if any one know how to fix that, i cant log in to my e-mail and that is so important to my work.
i m planning to buy e51 on 1st jan. i would like to know hows the music input and output comparing to N81 and xpress music phones. plz reply soon. and do ngage games work in it?
Original_Jamaican, 25 Dec 2008LUIS my friend, good to see you too.
I sold my 6300. I always sell my old phones when I get... moreWell I havenīt E51 I still keep my 5700, Iīm not able to upgrade my firmware but I can live with that, in few weeks itīll be 1 year old and is still ok.
Iīm not thinking on upgrade right now, I have some other expenses: college, car, friends, etc.
But maybe mid 2009 I upgrade, I liked E71 I have used one and belive me is great, great materials and quality plus all the advantages of Symbian OS.
But I want a N79, thatīs my dream phone right now, I think itīll be in my budget for nect year, I īdonīt want a very expensive phone so I think N79 is great.
PD: I recently saw my friend who purchased my past 6230, itīs still alive, definitely a warrior.
Where can I see the card memory and how can I see the stuff from it??? Pls help!!
Why does everything i get from bluetooth goes in Mesaages? ..and not in card memory????

It also has a better camera with a larger screen and more options.
E Series is a business series, so it's more optimized for business use and business applications.
E51 is 1 1/2 years newer than the N73.
E51 is slimmer and lighter than the N73, has a faster processor and larger internal memory, and has a newer operating system.
It also has the following better than the N73:
Better screen colors (16M instead of 256K)
WLAN, not available in N73
3.5G (3.6Mbps vs 384Kbps)
bal, 28 Dec 2008hi, can you tell me please from where you install so many applications, i want also.thank you!if u want to install u can go to File manager and from there u can install your applications
shahid, 28 Dec 2008this phone have a zoom in camera?yes, dear it have a zoom camera
all of this phone have one problam the Sctool key clour going very faster not more than 5 months, but all others are ok
Which is a better phn the nokia n73 or the e51?its important 4 me 2 kno as i need 2 make up my mind b4 the 31.12.08
shahid, 28 Dec 2008this phone have a zoom in camera?Yes there is 4X zoom facility for the camera. But clarity will gone.
i have bought it in 22 dec 2008. This phone is very GREAT!!.keypad is soft,good for fast typing. The design is very awesome!with stainless steel, it's looks elegant,luxurious and scratch resistant.it's slim too, so i can put it to my pocket easily. The feature is very complete with that's price. Wifi,GPRS and EDGE class 32, 3G HSDPA,visual radio,and great other feature make this phone PERFECT! the only weakness just the camera(2 megapixel,no flash),but it's not important for bussiness necessity.
My experience with this phone...only 1 comment, " I think Nokia better go back and manufacture basic phones". It hangs and hangs and the batt life is useless after 1 month into use. Best of all some times when I make a call the other side can't hear me till I reboot my phone angain because the operation hangs. So if you wanna phone fill with reboot, may be you can give your fingers an exercise for this phone. And yeah one more thing Nokia does not come in 1 to 1 exchange even they are the ones that screw things up!.
