The N78 and the E71 are completely different, no comparison should ever be made between the two.
The E71 is what you have already known about through the comments on this page, an emailing guru.
The N78, is a multimedia phone, that offers superb sound quality, extended playback hours (24 hours) in Offline mode, a 3.5mm audio jack support, up to 8GB of external storage for thousands of tracks, an FM Transmitter : ), what a smart idea that was, to put in a phone. I love it, just today, a friend of mine had a song that I loved as a ringtone, so.. Recieve Via Bluetooth, play it, and transmit it via FM frequency, and listen to it on your top-notch in-car sound system. : )
You can also have a party on-the-go, providing that you have Wi-Fi, it goes like this, connect to internet through wi-fi (cheaper than EGPRS or 3G), check out your favourite Internet Radio channels, search for one that is currently airing a live mix for say, Armin Van Buuren : ), buffer it and listen to it, then turn on the FM transmitter on your phone... And well, you can imagine the rest....
N-gage for games, GPS for navigation, and the new symbian interface, which I cant stress enough on how much of a treat it really is, you just gotta try it out if you havent already : )
This is what i was waiting quite long from nokia E61i
now i have it all and more. it become shorter. superb
Realy gonna buy
even for 400-500euro
Yes and FM Radio :), something that I wished to have on my E61i, for those occasional dull moments.
I am using Nokia's E61i, which is indeed a delight to use, since I am a heavy email user, It's ideal in all internet aspects, pushing the envelope of what a mobile device is capable of doing "conveniently"
The layout and the size and the specs were perfect for me, only topped by the E90, which even though superior was just abit too big for me, since I need to be able send emails/messages without strictly having to use both hands.
This new E71 is definitely my next mobile phone, since what the E61i is now incapable of, in terms of web-content support, more reliable downloading, and more effecient WLAN connectivity, the E71 could handle with ease, providing the massive specs this mobile has.
More internal memory, perfect for viewing big web-pages, or handling bigger downloads, and attachments. I suspect the built would be just as solid as that of my E61i, and well, Its looks a load better. "Loving the metal details and textures on this baby"
The New Symbian OS 9.3 seems to be a treat, I already used it on the N78, and its simply sensational.
A camera upgrade, even though not required, but definitely a good thing.
Cant wait until it hits the shelves.
this OS doesn't seems look like Symbian!!!, which OS is mobile? and the version?
Very stylish & Sleek Phone. This will rock. When is it expected in India?
thititat, 20 Jun 2008E71 support blackberry ?yes this supports blackberry. as far as i'm concerned all nokia E series phones are blackberry enabled.
today i played whit one it have a new thing on the screen u can swap wallpaper or somthing like that is very fast the faster nokia ever and when u type it try to guess the next word not bad eh just one bad thing i think the keys are too close
well the 2,36" screen is a bit dissapointing... my n95 8gb is better than this communicator...
Jon, 19 Jun 2008Kamikaze, there are hundrends of options in the market, for smal very stylish WITH SMALL SCREE... moreJon, i agree that nokia is a market leader wen it comes to mobile web browsing. I would know since i enjoyed web surfing on my last phone, which was the nokia e51. I guess its everyone with their own opinions, what i posted earlier is my opinion and im not trying to get everyone on my side. you think 2.8 in. is needed to enjoy mobile web browsing, i think only 2.0in. is enough with my e51. anyways i agree with matar. in the end, the resolution of the screen also plays an important role in a phone's screen, not only the inches.
Jon, 19 Jun 2008Kamikaze, there are hundrends of options in the market, for smal very stylish WITH SMALL SCREE... moreI don't understand why 2.8inch matter since the reslution of the screen is 320x240 so you will see the same thing either 2.36inch or 7.0inch screen,the E71 is same as E61i in reslution both are 320x240 except the E71 has better performance in many things and the E61i is good but slow it has very small internal memory about 23MB and the E71 has about 60MB plus higher in speed processor too
Varun Kishnani, 18 Jun 2008Does that Spreadsheet in E61I / E71 offer the same functionality as MS Excel does ? I need fun... moreyou should buy the samsung i780 , i have the e61i, is too slow and the wifi i cant use it because its not connecting, the wifi from the nokia is just an strategic move, the applicantions are very slow, the games are weak,i dont recomend the nokia e61i, buy something else, you will be more happy...
