Anonymous, 29 Oct 2008so ugly I solemnly agree to that...
Anonymous, 29 Oct 2008well itz not E61 itz E71 ;).. ( below d pik)yup, it's E71
I think gsmarena made some mistakes in this article.
I think they meant to write e71 instead of e61 for the caption under the picture.
Secondly i'm not sure if the e63 has a 3.5mm headset jack. i think it only has a 2.5mm headset jack just like the one on the e71.
Erick, 29 Oct 2008It is probably that some carriers will go for this device and then offering it to the mass mar... moreThat's exactly what happened here. Carriers went frenzy to the E62, even with the much better (and heftier) E61 lying around. They sold the E62 as the Nokia counterpart for the Blackberries. Aside this, most people who owned the E61 purchased it unlocked or under their personal plans. It made sense when happened because we did not have at 3G networks at that time. Now they may go for the E63, and the story may repeat itself.
It is probably that some carriers will go for this device and then offering it to the mass market to promote their online services. However, I geniunely believe that individuals will still go for the E71 because of its specifications and build quality.

Perhaps one of the reasons the NAM version of the E71 is selling under US400 is the fact that it's restricted to 3G frequencies that are used mostly in the US, making it almost useless to people from the rest of the world. I live in Brazil and here Nokia sells officialy the E71-3 for around USD500, that can be used in 3G anywhere in the entire world. The same may be applied to the E63. The E63 may go for the proportionally same amount charged for an E62 in its glory days, or about 30% of the E71, maybe less.
Where's the price mentioned in the 1st place?? The E71 is selling in the states for under $400 at many places. And that's pretty awesome for a phone with the specs and power it packs + QWERTY keyboard + camera with flash + worldwide connectivity.
If this phone is selling unlocked at $250, then i'm getting one. If this is selling for $300, then might as well get the E71.
i was guessing it is not that cheap at the end... probably just 20% cheaper?
