It´s a great phone, now Nokia should be release to market as the phone is very expected by people.
Also I was wondering how much it will be the price...
In terms of chinese, I am sure units launched in Asia would have that feature
Price I am guessing should be around, 550USD or maybe more when it first hits the shelves
E60 is out and shipping in countries like Denmark, Finland and Switzerland
This phone is the Treo buster! Symbian 9.0, no stubby antenna are the features that Treo has stupidly missed out. This smartphone is powerfull and fast!! The very next thing in productivity devices (See P9xx)
I am sooooooo gonna have this one!!!!
Alright guys. Here's an update
"Coming soon" has been removed from the website
Support pages are online
Those two are very important signs - Nokia E61 is in production and should hit the shelves in 10-14 days now :)
Serious buzz your logic doesnt make sense.
Carrier partnerships are important, but in markets like asia: hk, india, china - not many people relie on carrier partnerships - in these places - its the nokia who sells the phone through distributors to customers.
Uhh, cuz accordingly to your logic it seems that if the company cannot find a partnership or perhaps if partnerships dont happen... the phone wont be launched?
Explain me further what are u saying, cuz what you just said above.. doesnt make sense at all.
Everything depends on MANUFACTURER!
First of all, we need to remember that Nokia, or any other phone manufacturer has the final say on when a phone will be released. It is unfair to state that Nokia is pushing a phone back. Carriers have the final word on when a phone launches. I am sure any manufacturer would love to get their phones out as soon as possible. Wouldn't that just make sense? Think about it.
the phone is in t-mobile(uk) may bulletin as being released may along with the 6131 benq s88 and samsung z400. so couple of weeks tops
To the person below me, nothing is confirmed as of right now, cuz support pages arent really accessible thru nokia website.
It won't be long tho, people who attended CTIA said the device looks really complete and almost ready to go.
That being said, Nokia E60 is released, if you check the europe regional website, you will see on the hompeage, theirs a huge advertisment about it (and other e series)...
now this is been told me from someone who works for Nokia UK that they shuld receive phone sometime around first 10 days of may.
Also Nokia Singapore made a statement to press that all three e series will be available in May in Singapore, where E61 will be the only one sold through retailers and other two will be thru business channels only!
Is there any dat e we are looking at or are nokia being who they are and gonna drop back again?
1) Phone does have backlight for keys
2) It can sync data with your outlook, can be done in variety of ways. It even will suppore overtheair exchange...
3) It should be able to sync with your files as well
4) I am not sure of vibration part tho!
Does anyone know this phone got...
1. Backlight on Keypad?
3. Syncronize Outlook email automatically (Like PDA, Window mobile etc)
4. Syncronize File automatically (Like PDA, Window mobile etc)
Thanks a lot
Thats true, a touch screen would be awesome, but from the reviews I have heard that it works well without it too.
Also Blackberry users, like myself, we dont have the habbit for touch screen and thats what Nokia is trying to compete with. I would have wanted a scroll tho.
Do you know if the E61 is syncable with Macs? That's the deciding factor for me.....
I am not sure whats going on with nokia. They are keeping low profile this month. Couple of weeks ago they made a statement saying that they would be releasing N series. I am not sure whats the case, N91 atleast have been released, but that doesnt mean that you can buy it yet, most of the companies get their stock in 2 weeks from the time of release.
As of right now there is no information on E series release. OS 9.1 is a new platform... so I mean there could be issues with all the bundled email applications, btw nokia has confirmed that it will have goodlick, blackberry connect, Activesync, seven....
My guess is that this phone will be available sometime in May. This is a just an educational guess based on market... motorola q is delayed as well... so nokia has nothing to rush about yet! ....Nokia will not give an official period of release until its sure .. of it being released..since its been delayed already one!
OK, now I'm way too over-excited, but also my patience is running out!!...See: http://www.slashphone.com/articles/show_more/87-4097-NOKIA-E61-Hands-on-at-CTIA-2006.html?&page=4 for a video of the REAL THING!
