niks, 17 Dec 2009from wr e71 is available @ 180$?I got mine used on eBay for $168 2 months ago. A couple of scratches don't bother me, the phone is like new. It's not easy, but possible if you're patient and look everyday.
It's the best 168 dollars I've ever spent.
hey guys, jst bought an e71, can ne1 plzz suggest ne improvements & enhancements..

To run Skype on WM you need much higher CPU and it still lags and has similar to worse voice quality. The Skype beta running right now on the E71 sounds better than any I've ever heard and is quick and responsive with less CPU.
Symbian is just a far less bulky OS than WM with far less bugs and gets a lot more done with less CPU, RAM and battery drain. This phone is the bomb with the exception of the 2.5mm headphone jack - that annoys the hell out of me. I love how thin it is though. Best "blackberry" type phone out there IMO.

You can also check out the Nokia 6220 which is a candbar phone with 3.6mbps HSDPA and an impressive 5Mp camera with xenon flash. it retails a lot cheaper than the E71. Or you could check something like a Sony Ericsson C903.

And ... moreYou should not compare devices with different OS based only on RAMs and processor speeds. It is well known that, in order to work properly, WM requires much faster processors and larger RAMs than Symbian. Therefore, it is perfectly normal for Omnia B7320 to have a faster processor and larger RAM than E71, otherwise it would be a very very slow device. E71 has always been considered a fast phone (check page 3 of the Gsmarena review, for instance).
I just bought a Nokia E71 for $180, waiting until Friday to get it, ive had one before stolen and i absolutely love this phone, tons of apps, Nokia Conversation is a must have if you text a lot and just one of the best overall phones.
Buy Omnia PRO B7320. It has 535MHz processor and 256 RAM (E71 has 369MHz and 128 MB RAM). And Windows Mobile 6.5 is for better than this old symbian OS.

jayesh, 15 Dec 2009pls tell E71 sound good or badd....I own 1st batch E71 phone now. Good!
am planning to buy a phone with wifi enabled, GPS, camera 3 MP or more , ease of downloading applications, and few others with cost around 220-280$..i came down to E71...
main use:: going for higher studies abroad.. so more interntional calling thru skype , wifi and then GPS..
anyone could suggest me more alternatives or should i go for it...
when shud i buy it..do u think prices would fall more this new year..(i still have couple of months before leaving for PARIS)
That very bad customer support for just 20days old mobile. But Nokia India is planing to give extended warranty by paying extra money. There is no use of having Nokia Warranty. If this is the case I would have purchased it from the Gray Market.
Very bad customer support in India. If the handset has an issue and you didn't identify within 48 hrs time.. It is very difficult to get a support/repair for the manufacture defects. They have taken my new e71 for 3 times to repair the Manufacture issue and failed to rectify it. I don't know where to report this issue.
