Nokia made a great point in saying that they didn't choose Android because they didn't want the 'Nokia' brand to get lost with all the other Android devices.
Think about it my friends the exclusivity of operating systems are going through the window because of Android.
Before Android, whenever you thought of a Nokia smartphone 'Symbian' immediately came to mind, whenever you thought about a Motorola smartphone 'Linux' came to mind, whenever you thought about a HTC smartphone 'Windows Mobile' came to mind and the list goes on.
If every phone manufacturer uses Android then what competition will there be? If all phones should use Android then the marketplace will be a boring one because you are basically using the same phone with the only difference being the brand.
One more thing, Symbian doesn't require much power as Android which means that with a 600Mhz/680 CPU, Nokia can achieve the same performance as a 1Ghz CPU used in Android phones. You pay less for a 600/680Mhz CPU which makes the consumer happy...not to mention a 600/680MHZ CPU consumes less battery than a 1GHz processor.
Where smartphones are concerned phones like the E71 and E6 are the pinnacle of what Nokia stands for. As it is now, Nokia is making a statement with it's summer release of the E6.
I want ALL you commenters here on GSMArena to think about everything I said. Have a nice day one and all.
AnonD-13991, 16 Jul 2011bought nokia e6 last month...but couldnt understand why people are finding so many problems...... moreTo MAHADEV:
Nicely said my friend.
What you said about the complexity of mobiles these days are true and Nokia still finds a way to stick to simplicity...yet very effective neverthless.
I'm tired of hearing about Android and though I'm yet to check out an Android phone I believe it's overhyped.
I have been using Nokias since 3310 days and liked Nokia very much. When I got the legendary 6230 which Nokia slated as 'Precision' my like for Nokia changed and instead I fell in love with Nokia (smile).
A Nokia representative said that for technology to be a success it has to be simple for the user to understand and Nokia have always found a way to make their advanced technology to be simple to understand. Many kudos to Nokia.
As I have said before, Nokia makes the most reliable and practical phones and as long as they are in existence I don't think that will ever change.

I don't know that song but I'm going to look it up and try it on my E71 then use it on the E6 whenever I am able to get one.
bought nokia e6 last month...but couldnt understand why people are finding so many problems...i think everyone is expecting more than a mobile phone...i agree with my friend that mobiles were a lot more convinent in times of nokia n73,6600,7610,e51..evrything was simple and dynamic...but todays mobile phones are extremely complicated..mobiles are now being made as commuters rather than just a means of communication..
android os may be very efficient and superfast but truth is they are more complicated,more erronious,complex and overhyped...i still dont understand why people need more than a couple homescreens with 10000s of application which are just a means of making ur phone more difficult and complicated to follow...i dont understand why people are losing patience to wait for blink of eye while operating and require dual core processors to be fast..i mean how fast do u people want a mobile phone to be...
but nevertheless its my opinion...i have always taken mobiles as a means of communication more than its other multimedia facilities....i love nokia and i am sure nokia will still be simple and beautiful...

Well, I own a Nokia E6. Almost a month now. I have no problems with it. After coming off the N73, the Qwerty phone plus touch screen is something I needed to get used to and learn for a while. And now that I have gotten used to it, everything, and I mean everything works great. The camera might not be the best but I have a Canon digital camera for good pictures. The E6 camera is only if I don't have ny Canon with me or if I need to take HD video quickly.
The browser is great but a downloadable Opera Mobile works even greater.
The sound is loud. I have Simple Minds Don't You Forget About Me as a ringtone. And it gets everyone else in the office starting to sing "He-He-He-Hey!" when my E6 rings.
The A-GPS is a lovely feature. And Ovi Maps is free to use too!
It is true though that the notification light is quite weak and is not visible in bright light or even in fluorescent light. But I do check my phone every now and then to see if there are missed calls or SMS and the screen does tell you about missed events, which probably would lessen my need for a notification light.
This is the best business phone Nokia came up with and the battery lasts 2 to 3 days under normal to heavy use on a mixed 2G, 3G or 3.5G network, depending where I am. It's set to work under any of those categories.
And the voice I hear from the other end is quite clear and the earphones work great too.
I have an 8GB memory card with it but be sure to buy at least a Class 4 micro SD card for the HD video to record and save properly. An ordinary Class 2 or unclassified micro SD just won't do because of HD video.
Mine works perfectly. If yours doesn't work properly, go back to the dealer and ask for a replacement or use the warranty...unless you got your E6 from dubious sources...
I own a Nokia E6. And I'm happy with it. Period.
Compare to nokia E5 i think E6 would be gr8 but what the price of it, but i am happy with my E5 its simplt gr8
nokia e6 compare with nokia e5/e72 same RAM and almost same processor. Can I just to change for different Symbian OS, Display, Touch and Type and Camera?

Why r u people arguing with phone manufacturer and OS??? One brand can be good and the other can be bad, but there must be at least two leading manufacturers in race so that they'll try to give us a good service.....
Nokia E6 is Best Phone For Me.and I am fully satisfied
with nokia . i love nokia.

Mihai, 15 Jul 2011sorry for the PS :
First,people don't codemn nokia for anything exept having hugely expensive... moreI have used various phones from Siemens, Sony Ericsson, Samsung, Motorola, LG, Palm Treo, Palm Pilot UI phones, Blackberry and I guess more which I just can't remember right now.
Blackberry is probably the worst of the lot. They are so expensive and yet so fragile. I have known of Blackberrys to stop working after a fall and I know one person who's Blackberry camera stopped working after a fall. Even Nokia's cheapest phone will last forever.
Based on my experiences none of them are as practical, sensible or as reliable as Nokia. It's as simple as that.
You stick to what you like and I will stick to what I like but nobody will be able to change my way of thinking.

That's funny what you said about the Android fan boys on the 1100's page. I will go and check it out. It's quite funny that Android fans would feel threatened by the 1100. Could it be because Nokia has sold more than ONE BILLION 1100 worldwide?
And as you said my friend, they are all jealous...otherwise they wouldn't be on Nokia pages so much!
guys,my gps is not working,,it shows me wrong location,n some time it doesnt even show me any location..plz plz plz help me!
this baby is just great as other Eseries before....been using galaxy for two month and i go back to nokia again...luv u nokia
As you can see..this phone is no doubt..the screen is more impressive than retina display bout the pixle..do you imageine that the E6 have 640x480 is twice than E72 is 320x240..thats mean on only 2.4 inch can get Hi-Res screen..more than that almost HD games on Symbian^3 can play it but bit small..
that i truly impress bout this E6..no mether what Black berry does on their screen but too nerd phone and no entertain..The maps Speed is more faster than other phone and fast 10Mbps on HSDPA.
so these is Unique bout E6 of design Chris Probert does..no Amoled but worth and good in all format Video and sound..and Nokia get drop their price fast..because he know what Costumers cares..
No match with Iphone, especially 4 and then HTC desire...nokia is good for a certain class those who are used to these two brand would never ever opt for nokia etc.....
Fixed focus? While there is plenty improvement from my E72, it's fixed focus scare me. I normally use my E72 to take a picture of document which 5mpx is more than enough. Looking at document picture taken by this phone let me go out and think "What Nokia is trying to give their customer with enhanced dof fixed camera?" It is good for video but not picture especially closed distance which I use much. May be it time to leave E for alternative brand.
