Why Coming Soon ? Long time Oct To April 2006 Why long time ? many month
I think the phone is lovely.I will like to have it as my personal phone.The Style and shape is fantastic.
I've already asked this same question on the E61 message board, but just in case anyone from here knows; has the software of the E-series been altered since the prototype versions so that you can zoom-out on a web page to get an overview of the whole thing rather that having to scroll down, or more annoyingly right?
Please at least read the current page of posts and/or do some research before asking such questions.
Using the basic criteria of WLAN (Wi-Fi), bluetooth, a camera, expandable memory and 'currently available', you have the option of around 15 handsets -none of which run Symbian OS (all WM). Bumping the camera requirement up to 1MP or better gives you around 10 to choose from; then adding UMTS (3G) as well leaves you with just one option -the i-mate JASJAR/Qtek 9000/O2 XDA Exec/T-mobile MDA IV...even then I don't think this is available with 850MHz band. Yes it has a QWERTY thumb-board, but as I mentioned earlier runs WM 5.0, is plagued by errors, is an absolute brick (weighing over twice that of the E70) and is ridiculously over-priced! Looks like we're all gonna have to wait for Nokia to get their act together :(
This is going to take a long time now, time for finding a good alternative, anyone knows an other brand with almost same options?
At least this gives the N-series customers some time-scale. The E-series could be anytime from a couple of weeks to several months according to that statement!
"Nokia made an important announcement today about the delay of their latest smartphones, the E60, E61, E70, N71, N80 and N91. Apparently, they are claiming that software problems had delayed the release of the six models.
Nokia wasn't specific about the bug they found, but said that they will be shipping the N91 this week, followed by the N71 and N80 later this month. The company's business phones, the E60, E61 and E70, that also missed their March launch, will not be shipping until Nokia makes sure the software has been properly tested."
Australia usually get most new releases slightly later than Europe. I reckon it'll be in stores here (UK) by Apr/May. I'll be over in Oz in June, so if you still don't have them, lemme know n I'll bring you one over!
Nokia is not willing to give any update about the release, which I think is a bit arrogant and not customer-friendly, I love the E70 that's why I will buy it but if an other brand would release a look-a-like...I would go for that instead of the Nokia
I've been monitoring the availability of a number of new Nokia handsets over the past months. I decidied to find out for myself what Nokia is saying on availability, here in Australia.
My question to them was on the expected availability of the E60, E61 & E71 in Australia. Their response is.....
"All three handsets should be in store @end May/start June."
Hope that's useful....
Sounds like you'd be better off with the N80 -3.2MP camera, plus a second on the front; FM radio and a neat design. Although this with its excellent battery life and QWERTY thumb-board do it for me! I can barely contain myself waiting for its release and spend way too much time trawling the internet for word of it's release.
Actually... I cannot remember any other phone in the past that impressed me as much as this phone did by simply looking at the specs sheet. Features are totally incredible. Sure some do still find something to complain about with this phone feature-wise, but nothing comes close to this one. Afterall, all phones do have their flaws. Only one single problem why I don't want it. I really hate the design. I always thought the 6800 looked horrendous, so does this one. I'd buy a phone that is useful, but the looks is also important to me. I want my phone to make me feel good. This one, although more than satisfies my feature-craving, just doesn't hit the spot.
Today is the 1st April.I MUST find this telephone now!I love it! And its only 500$...good features,good design,good performance...and good price...People? but I still think and can understand...the price of Nokia NSreies is no less then 600$...but Nokia E70 is better with features and design...and cosns only 500$...why,tell me please?
