Nikhil, 01 Jul 2008E71 is now available in India for Rs.19600Hi Nikhil,
thanks a lot for your early response. But please inform where it is available at that price? And if possible, kindly write what are the accessories they are providing with the phone in sales pack?
Thanks a lot in advance!
I checked in NCR, its retailing for Rs. 22950/- at Nokia Stores/Priority dealers.
Where to get it for 19600/-?
e51 comes with a front camera and the e51 later released another version without a front camera leaving it to the consumer to choose what they wanted.
I dont see you mentioning the fact that this E71 does not have bbconnect, therefore making it nothing but a worthless piece of junk!!!
Anonymous, 30 Jun 2008How far better nokia E71 will be than E51, except qwerty and .36 images bigger screen, at dou... morei love my e51 until i lost it :( (dont ask how i lost it) it's a great phone.... but i have to admit in all tht greatness, few things are missing...
for instance, the e51 doesnt have a front video call camera n i make a lot of those types of calls
Next thing that was missing was a better camera. im not saying its the best camera, but a 3.2 megapixel, auto focus and an LED flash is enough for me since i am not much of a professional photographer.
The next improvement regardless of the qwerty keyboard is the bigger scren. im not complaining that the e51's screen is too small to surf the web. i was really satisfied with surfing the web with e51's 2" screen, but to think tht a 2.36" screen at your disposal on the e71 would be a treat.
i love the e71, but im waiting for the release of the e66. im gona get the e66. it looks damn good and it only has the specs to match its good looks.
ive stated the main differences between the e71 and e 51. its up to the individual preference of the users to determine whether or not they should upgrade their e51 to the e71. If it was up to me, i'd definitely get either the e71 or the e66 :) hope this helps.
How far better nokia E71 will be than E51, except qwerty and .36 images bigger screen, at double price? Will it be wise (or just foolish !) to upgrade to E71 from E51?
And even for a new buyer, considering the huge price difference, buying which one (between E51 & E71) will be a wise decision? Guys, please help me out! I am utterly confused !! Thanks a lot in advance.
Two major short falls at least 2.6" Screen and Symbian OS 9.3 SP 3.2
,,,It seems gonnna be a best seller...!!! I wandering if Nokia solved the sound quality isuee on this model .. I mean considering the E51 which is a superb device but whit a mono speekers built in,,,
Prosenjitz, 30 Jun 2008Hi,
seen in a post in net that E71 is already selling in Mumbai at Nokia Priority Dealers a... morePlease see my earlier post regarding SAR.
SAR got nothing to do with the OS features. It is most related to the antenna power and its placement within the phone. Most of the later smartphones have a slightly higher value including the E71. This probably got to do with the need to support more transport frequency bands which we the users wanted.
How far away do you use your phone matters most?
seen in a post in net that E71 is already selling in Mumbai at Nokia Priority Dealers at an MRP of Rs. 22,700!! Is it true?
And regarding SAR ISSUE, if the OS with Feature Pack 1 is responsible for high SAR Count, should we avoid the phones with this FP-1? Advice please.
Edwin, 27 Jun 2008@sue, if this phone is soooo good how come the E61i had bb connect and this one does not? Is t... moreThe BB connect in E61i has been replaced by the built-in GPS tog with the A-GPS function not forgetting the FM radio. In my country, we do not need a BB connect phone to connect to Blackberry. In actual fact, the BB connect allows to you access Blackberry from our local network services with the use of non-Blackberry phones. So now do you prefer d BB connect or built-in APS? Maybe Nokia has change it in view of this. Go and half a look at the E71 in the phone shop. I assure you will fall in love with it at first sight as many have done. Good Luck!
this one will be great phone.
you can download themes ringtones and all stuff from

Two SE fans (2Ams, PGcX) keep giving me hard time at the G900 forum. I have made ... morePointing out the issue of SAR is a good reminder to all. However, there are many phones with similar values like E71. Actually the E71 and E51 actual RF is not that high but these models have the antenna position nearer to the earpiece.
For user, the real issue is how much you TALK on the earpiece for the phone. The answer to this question is user dependent and phone dependent.
A music player phone is heared thru the headphone so it is where on your body you pocket it which matters. As SAR really measures the harm of the RF on body issues next to it.
A bluetooth earpiece has much little SAR so it is probably a good investment for users with long conversation.
My E51 to me is more of a surf/email/text device so I am not worried about placing it near my body.
I think it is pointless to debate about just the SAR values without thinking about how one uses the device because obviously today the cellphone is no longer just a phone for talking but a multi-function device.
