My uncle just bought this phone from japan to India, and i say its an awesome phone, swift soft keypads super-fast operations.
The only thing it misses out is a dedicated keys of the phone book and the voice recorder which was present in E51.
The internal memory is pretty less as compared with the E51, cuz soon it fills up the message inbox if u into tooooooo much of a messaging ,like i am. however u can choose which memory to use for storage either phone or memory card, but what i have experienced is that phone memory is much faster to access than the memory card.
and one more thing which i did not find very impressive i don't know about others, is that in the gallery when u open the video folder then u have to turn the phone horizontally to view them, i dont know if its possible to view it vertically as you can view the pictures in the images folder.
over all its a must buy thing....i am waiting for it to be available in India ASAP...
+1 for E55

* Can the music player fast forward/rewind?
* Can you seek to a specific point in the song?
* If you quit the music player, does it remember the position in the song?
* Can you reassign the voice control side button to be a play/pause button?
day 3: battery is still on 4 bars full and yes i have been using more of the features today... i havent experienced any trobules with it ..
Be very careful when buying this, don't just look, start pulling and twisting the body to make sure it's solid !!!
The front metal rim was loose on my phone, and i did't realise this until after buying it, i have it in service now, so be carefull.
e55 body part not smart and no standard! include back cover! I think body part for e71 better than e55! Smart ass nokia!
i bought one 2 days ago in oxford circus, let the battery go dead, charged it fully, put some music on it. woke up today and the phone is DEAD!!! it wount even charge or sync with the pc. the build quality is even vorse than the e51, straight out of the box the front metal rim was falling off :(
how come gsm arena secretly change the satus of this phone from coming soon to released??
where? not in my country that's for sure.
This phone is now vapourware. Even if released it would have the same buggy alpha-grade firmware as the E52. Shame on Nokia.
My only hope is the E72 but it seems they will release it really late... too bad there will be other alternatives in the market by then.
Adios Nokia and Symbian!
day 2 with the fone:
battery still on full even with extensive use with calls, texts, youtube and little music... geting very used to the texting and usability of the phone... =)

# Camera : VGA, 640 X 480 Camera... moreplease remember when we talking about global market, majority of people (read: middle low class), do not have a sophisticated mind like you. they just think simple, they watch the build design is attractive compact qwerty and they see it comes with popular network such as facebook, etc. and they look at the price.. CHEAP! they'll buy it without second thought. That might as well happen to many of other rich people who aren't geek and ignorant of full specs.
See..? Even nexian type of blackberry is sold like hot cake because it has the same build factor as genuine bb (forget the specs!).. and costs less than usd 100.
