Nokia E6 hands-on: First look

Nokia E6 hands-on: First look - read the full textThe E6 is Nokia’s latest business offer and it has just landed in our office. It’s the company’s first smartphone running the new Symbian Anna OS out of the box. The E6 is a touch phone with a QWERTY keyboard and it even has a higher pixel density than the iPhone’s Retina display...

'What we have here is a pre-release E6 prototype and you should by no means judge the performance or features of the future retail product based on what you see or read here. Consider this article more of a tech demo than anything else.'

HAHA the most obvious change in the retail version is definitely the font!

strange that the E6 isn't exactly out yet but GSMA already got a pre/review, while the Motorola (Droid) Pro has been around for months but not a single pre/review is available.

Very sad to see GSMA continues to review maybe 1 Motorola (or other brands other than Samsung/HTC) for every 10 (if not 100!) almighty brand phones...well knowing the latter is going down the drain.

aargh!!! im getting fkd up!!! cant this nokia stop producing 8mp with useless fixed focus? rather make 5mp autofocus!!!i prefer latter. but fixedfocus is useless to take photos of text and any printed matter thats quite small which is MOST useful for students and businessmen so that they can take quick clicks at documents. what a wasted feature!! nokia everything else is PERFECT! just the camera sucks.. im not happy with it..

"We managed to take accurate measures of both screens and calculated the pixel densities of both – they turned out 326ppi for the Retina display and 328ppi for the Nokia E6 display."

I am interested in how they took the accurate measures. For 640x480 screen

328 ppi = 2.439"
326 ppi = 2.454"

Now the screen size is 2.46". So the pixel density for E6 should be 326 ppi if not lower.

What is your method of calculation DPI? I calculated 325.2 PPI, not 328 Even so, such a high DPI on such a small screen really has no face value.

whenever they say "DEAD END" for Symbian, it should be accompanied with "...but UPGRADEABLE to WINDOWS PHONE 7".

*sigh* GSMA has to admit that Sym^3 is a dead end.
But to be honest, it looks alright. My phone is a tool, not a toy - (I'll be getting a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 v2 for my Android tablety goodness) so assuming an in-depth review of the Anna update is positive - in particular the camera interface and browser - the N8 is looking like my next handset.
