those who who seek that da design of the fone looks lazy , well thay so funny to e this s not a series 40 or Music oriented fone to make so slim and sexy this s Smart fone ,i wonder whether people understand what E Series Means E= Enterprise edition , but over all this fone desgin looks great specially Nokia Dora .
Same old ugly look same old function from all the E-series nth special at all.. Look so traditional not even business look.. didn't even have the heart to buy..
I have played with both sets.
A very good upgrade frm E65. It is slimmer now. And contain new function like GPS and 3.2mp auto focus camera. There have been in a change in the OS as well. ppl who have the E65, sell away ur E65 now before they become useless. E66 is a nice upgrade with a total different feel.
I only have 1 feeling when i hold the white colour set. It feels just like holding a palm centro. the key pad is small, but works just like the palm centro(which is quite comfortable) GPS and 3.2mp auto focus is a plus.
One thing i don understand nokia is.. since Nokia have slighty upgraded the OS.. why cant they just create the thread sms as well.. why must they still stick to the old traditional way? Even Window 6.1 have upgraded to threaded sms..
Until now (09 May 2008 @ 9:00am), Nokia has not made any official announcement of Nokia E66 and E71. Come on Nokia! Don't make us disappointed again this time.
seems like the wait for improvements is over
i have had both the E61 and E61i phones and i thinks iam addicted to this full qwerty thing along with the wide 16M colour screen from Nokia and can't really go back to normal keypad phones
plz comfirm the added built in gps and secondary video call camera, and what software will it run on?
what is the release date
I think it's too fast to judge the design based on these photos. These photos are very poor, taken from very close distance (that creates a distortion effect). In fact there were some official photos (small ones) leaked a few months ago where both looked just fine (E66 was quite pretty in my opinion - very slim, steel back). The specs are quite good, all that you need in a business phone: HSDPA/3G/EDGE, Wi-fi, GPS, miniUSB, 128 MB RAM, microSD cards (8 GB already available, 16 GB coming soon), 3.2 MP Autofocus camera, video probably at 640x480x30 fps. The only weak point to me is the resolution which seems to be the old 320x240, even if the screen seems to be 2.4" (on E66). I think 2.4" (or 2.6-2.8" on E77) can have a better resolution than 320x240 and for browsing reasons it is really a "must" (2.8" is double as surface than 2" so a double resolution should be ok - at least iPhone resolution (480x320) should look fine). Of course bigger resolutions means more processing power needed, GUI hardware acceleration, better battery, etc but Nokia needs to make that step at least on the high end phones (and I'm not including E90 here (resolution 800x480) which is already another category of phone). And they also announced that Tube will not be a high-end phone ... so it will probably not include GPS, serious camera, HSDPA, etc. So I am really not sure when will Nokia come with a more than 320x240 phone but I really hope it wont take long as I dont want to have to go for SE or HTC new top phones (Xperia and Diamond).
Are you sure that GPS is internal and not A-GPS or Bluetooth GPS?
My E60 has similar items but they require a BT GPS receiver to work.
Are you sure that GPS is built in? It could be either A-GPS or Bluetooth.
well design allways look boooring on photos, especially with Nokia. but when i hold the handset's in my hand and tested it, then it was nice, really nice indeed :-) E66 is my next device.
Yeah, sorry Nokia,
I absolutely love e-series phones, but the design could be a bit more interesting on these new ones... Great news about the autofocus cameras though...
It's my imagination or both have front videocall cameras??
They looks nice, great job Nokia
Come on Nokia. What took you guys so long to re-release the updated 3g verison of the E62. Man i have been waiting forever to get this phone. The E62 was a pretty good phone. Plus the cell phone industry is coming to where PDA's make there company. Main money maker. This E71 will sell like hot cakes. Especially if you have had the E62 which was a great phone. Congrats on coming over into the PDA world. I hope that Nokia comes out with All touch screen. So they can put the Iphone to Shame.
E65 looks better than E66
E71 is nice but i m hoping that they both will have AF cameras :D
E71 will be my new phone. :)
It has everything I need:
dont like any of the nokia phones now days except the 6600 fold rest is all ugly
P5 or X1 all the way :)
