The specs are surely fantablous. I hope that the problems carried in its predecessor are not carried by the E51 - the E50 which I happily changed & used over 3 times in the series of my mobile phone usage, I think it has the best basic and advance key features any entrepreneur would like like Office compatibility(although without editing features), Basic Camera, Unlimited Phonebook, Unlimited Messaging, etc but the Network is genuinely weak. It does not WORK in normal areas and one actually has to come in open air to have secure conversation without the fear of losing signal. The reason of me buying 2 more times were the amazing features in the small pack but the poor signal was simply killing my work. The E51 seems promising and I hope it does not contain the same problem.
Re: Re: GPS
i wrote ... " gps CAPABILITY ".
had 4 other nokia smartphones (had 3250, 6680, 6630, e50), and had problems with the symbian, but e51 has no faults until now,( fast, precise)... i like it more than my late 6630 which i thought will never be surpassed. was rather dissapointed with the e50
Big Question here:
It sais its only got 4.5 hhours of talk time, is that on 3G or on GSM network. Is it possible to turn off 3G and only use the GSM cause i figure this will extend life seeing as i dont ever use 3G.
From the manual it says it has GPS support, but you need a bluetooth receiver. There's no GPS antenna onboard.
If anyone using this phone experienced any disadvantages please post them here.
This phone costs 300 dollars at buy.com. Weird people here. It isn;y such a good phone. Nokia n95 is the best. Gigabyte is the best and beats all the companies. I win!!! Hahahahahahahaha!
This phone is great for the price. Stainless steel,and great features. 2MP is great for a phone. If you need anything better, buy a digital camera and get a life. This phone only cost $3000 at buy.com! It is the best phone! Good quality and good price!!!!!!!!

well guys do you know why is steel been introduced cause they know it can be scratched easily and if you drop the phone you will see an awful dent in it lol whereas if you have a plastic phone it wont be bothered at all >>> see i think the nokia guys should make a special phone for me using the polymers that are used in glock, taurus and smith&wisson pistols and a touch of black polished african wood and just bar shape measuring 110 by 48 by 12 mm a 2.2" display a 3 mega cam dont even put a front camera and a series 6 os a 3 mm av jack and 5 hours talk time ... sell it for 500 $ and i know it will be the mostly sold unit in the world i bet this but you know what they will never make such a phone cause it will never look old even after 2 years ... cause the polymers used in pistols is something like a rock and the black african gets glossy day by day .... lol i have just dropped my 6500 slide and i am ruining lol any way its a good phone no doubt butttttt the display might have been 2.2 lol.... i have just got this phone and its absolutly good the sides shine welll and nevertheless its great but heyyyyyyyyyy someone if they have aproach to nokia tell them what i said cheeeeers
GPS capability = YES, just watch the VIDEO section of the e51 description
E51 user manual talks of two surprising things:
1. Two-way video calls: If this is supposed to be using the 2MP camera on the back, then it is going to be very uncomfortable to use.
2. GPS!!: I never knew E51 had GPS
Anyone with more info on the above?
