My Self have Cingular or say now AT&T in USA. Now AT&T has the 3G, 1900 and GSM. So, this phone cover all the Freq. The E51 phone you buy from Asia is unlock. So, no problem to take out Asia Card and replace with At&T card. All my other Nokia such as N73, N70, E61, N76, 6300 and 6120 worked on AT&T. Why not E51?
Are you sure it will work in the USA? Not now at least. AT & T which is our only carrier that has 3g mostly has it on 1900Mhz not 850mhz which this phone has!! Yes please read carefully. People living in bangkok or europe probably are not aware of this. They should just say it will work in the USA.
I just biught the E51 last night in Bangkok. It is a great and fantastic phone. The case is stanless steal and looks great. For those they do not know this phone has Wi-Fi, 3G, and all Freq, plus WCDMA. means it will work in Asia, Europe, USA, Japan, and so on. I am international traveleers and knowwhat works where. N95 also do same no problem. The price was about 11,000 Baht. I can not believe i found the phone. Go E51
I guess since it only has 850mHz HSDPA for U.S. frequency, this phone is not worth buying among all Nokia phones except probably the N95 U.S. Version which has both the 850/1900Mhz frequency for HSDPA. But it doesn't have the 2100Mhz frequency added on. I don't understand why Nokia does this. They always fall short of having complete features. Why don't they just have the 1900Mhz frequency instead of the 850mhz for now if not both for the U.S. customers. Our HSDPA is primarily 1900Mhz and very few 850Mhz. It's mind boggling why they do this. It doesn't make any sense.
Seriously folks, How on earth can anybody comment or vote on the performance of this phone when NOBODY has tried it? I believe it will be released on the 12th November. Please wait till then.
I don't think phone available in the U.S. yet. From looking at the features it seems this phone is a notch better than the Nokia 6120. This phone has WIFI however with VOIP!! Plus the talk time is better than the 6120. I don't know why it doesn't have a rating of 8 for performancec and features. This looks like a great business.
Nokia e51 look pretty goodz but it should have big screen like iphone
This mobile is Symbian 9.2 FP1 as can be seen directly from Nokia here:
GSM Arena has made a mistake.
How come E51 still use symbian version 9.1 instead of 9.2 ?
Is this data correct coz 6120 (Just launched) using 9.2
Even though many people like this phone, it has got less ratings on gsm arena web site. very poor, very poor.
come lets boost up the ratings, if u like this phone. :)
can somebody tell me when this phone is coming out?.Think it is a great phone.
Finaly the website www.buy.com got itz publicity without spending a peeny & all the credits goes out to u people. I guess u all should have been brand amabassadors for buy.com, atleast tht way u wud hav helped them make more millions even faster.
I just fail to understand 1 thing, instead of u people coming to gsm arena & complaining tht the phone states sold out since a week, instead u all shud have atleast contacted buy.com customer support to enquire abt the available date of Nokia E 51..
Anyways, people who were complaining about buy.com, now if buy.com would not hav u as their customers jus b'coz E51 was not available, they wud still b greatful to u for promoting their website on gsm arena, b'coz other people after reading ur reviews wud come to know about tht website & wud visit buy.com & buy some other model mobile or some other stuff.
I guess today I learnt a new marketing technique, although the genuine price of E51 must be US $300, but the new trick I learnt is tht for explample, advertising a US $ 2000 worth laptop on my website(lolz, incase I create an ecommerce website in the future) for jus US $ 750 & stating tht it is sold out.
Atleast this way due to free pulicity people wud visit my website & buy something else. Howz that..
Have a nice day ahead.
Why there is so many st,.upid people on this planet???...and some of them are posting bad things about this phone?!God have mercy 4them...
