i noticed that e66 has 'flight mode,' but e71 has 'offline mode.' what is the diffrerence between those 2 modes?
Wonderkid, 08 Jul 2008@Winura: I disagree with your comments re camera & video. Most professional business people ha... morei was just pointing out Nokia's argument with the E Series. anyhow this phone has a better camera than most nokia's right? even though the 3mpxl cam is not up to N93i's standard its somewhat better than a 2mpxl with auto focus. and if the camera is a 3mpxl it definitely will give out more than the silly 176x144 resolution like in most phones with 2mpxl. the camera maybe somewhat disappointing. but its better than nothing right? the phone has a separate cam for video calls as well. in the future nokia might put a better camera if the potential buyers ask for. the problem is most people go for the look of the phone and start acting silly saying the sounds are not good, the cam isn't good, i want this i want that etc. some wants bigger screens. you have to admit when it comes to the screen there are dimwits who expects a screen as big as the tv screen to be fitted to the phone. thats what you call stupidity. just because you have the money you shouldn't buy a phone just for the sake of buying one. i have never bought a phone just for the sake of buying one and so should the others. if you just buy a phone 90% of those people won't be known as a happy customer.
i like this model. very good features and beside that i really like the design. This is the latest phone, i dont hear any complain from the customers right now. within 3 mos i planning to buy but i want to ckeck if this is a good handset.
@Winura: I disagree with your comments re camera & video. Most professional business people have family and friends, many, have young children. There is no better way to record their lives than with high resolution (future proof) video clips. These people have MORE use for such capability than the N series market. In fact, Nokia (and other vendors) should realise that people today desire less devices and so the more each does, the better. I am now considering another N95 8G, the iPhone (equally bad camera I know) or something else yet to be announced. E71 is lovely either way - I got to play with one recently.
I have had this phone for over a week ... I also have an Apple iPhone 2.5G, Nokia Arte, and a Nokia N95 8gb ... this phone is the clearly the winner - functions, build, feel, battery life ... it's clear call quality is sublime ... Highly recommended ... Good job Nokia!
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970won't be much of an upgrade for you except for a few characteristics. but there's no harm upgrading to this from an E51.
to all who are complaining that this phone doesn't have blackberry connectivity:
guys, in my country one of the leading mobile phone networks does offer blackberry connectivity to all existing E Series devices. well for at least post paid customers. but for the ones who don't have post paid connections can always use "mail for exchange" which is also very good. if you read the review of this phone they have clearly mentioned "email is the highlight of both devices" (E66 and E71). and if the highlight is that i don't think nokia will make such a silly decision to make this device not compatible with blackberry.
before making such statements all of you should read and do a bit of research so it will avoid you from making misleading statements.
as for those who complain about the camera quality and its video features please focus on a Nokia N Series phone. E series is for business. not for photography and other multimedia purposes. its very disappointing to see that still people have not understood the difference between the Nokia E series and the N series.
I have E-51. Nice phone. If I change then what differ with E-71? Any suggestions?
It is still not compatible with blackberry so thats a bummer.. once it has that... A brilliant and sleek phone.
