How come there is same model of E71 but from China with touchscreen and dual sim card? Is that some trick version? What's the downside of using it in US?
Great Built Quality & Very Solidly Built, Lots of Spec, Smooth Running & Fast, Does'nt Crash like other Nokia do, i.e. N95, N73,Or other Smart Nokia Phones, Superb Battery Life get upto 6 Days from One Charge, WIFI & GPS are Great, Camera is Standard 3.2 Mega pixel & not as good as Others, but its Functional, Overall 9 out of 10, One of the if not the Best Nokia Phone Out.

Thanks in advance

I have this phone for about 5 month..
I can say it was a great surprise after N8801!!!
Battery last "forever"! I have to charge it once a week(!) and I make and receive a lot of calls.
WLAN connection amazing, crystal clear speaker and loudspeaker, too. The colors are fantastic.
The only difficulty was(to me) to get used to the keypad- not as comfortable right away as Blackberry Bold-,but I learned quickly, so no hard times anymore.
The sensitivity of the built-in antenna is remarkable. It picks up the signal quickly and even in case of one bar you still enjoy and continue talking without break-ups, call-drops or static noises.
Camera isn't bad, but the flash needs to be improved-it cannot compete SE Xenon Flash at all.
Video-filming is much greater, you can zoom in and out, while you're making your clip, microphone is absolutely reliable. Menu is very easy to use and logically built. The screen is variable, meaning, you have a choice of basic or active screen, within active mode, you can switch between home or work position. It gives you a lot of options what to be shown and indicated on the display of the phone.
Overall experience is very good, if you've got the money, buy it!!! :)
guys help me out... Personally i like the touchscreen of iPhone.. I've not used it much..and do not know the functionality of the device. But it's a bit costlier for me.. Should i go for iPhone 3G or buy a nokia E71..

Mark, 11 Apr 2009Is there a Touch Screen feature in this unit? Thanksno
Souvik, 11 Apr 2009Do u have any code for E63 like the *#7370# code for e71???? S.O.Ssame code, remember its the same os.
The rubber caps of mem card and cable get dirty on white color within days and only ugly, plus camera without AF is purple even updated firmware.
Price has come down inanticipation of e55 others but Made n China has become standard built.
Hopeless for Nokia to follow SE. Prices should be halved if chinese even under authority of Nokia. why they cant match non branded chinese cells flooded n market
