If you want to catch up with latest tech, than buy this new phone, it has it all, it 2009 men. Unlock your self from from old tech.
It has better processor, better OS (FP2 vs FP1),
better email client (e71 has a old fashion one, even after latest v40 fw update),
electronic compass (turning your phone around will turn the whole map),
better audio quality through headphone (e72 has its own sound hardware),
touch pad (its feel like u have a semi touch screen phone, especially when you browse gallery effortless, just by sweeping ur finger),
5mpix camera (powerful like nseries),
usb charging (u dont have to bring a charger to ur office, just bring that short usb cable),
bigger phone memory (250mb vs 120mb),
fast usb transfer (almost triple speed compare to e71),
accelerometer (turn your phone upside down, to mute ringtone or alarm, with 3rd party apps, u can do better than this),
cheaper launching price (dont compare price of one year old phone, with a new phone, e71 launching price is far more expensive than e72)

By the time E72 price drops, we will be seeing a new model on this site and then end up waiting for that one.
You like it, then buy it.
I think cellphone is an expense NOT INVESTMENT. Its value is not going to grow. Its how much use you have for it that you could spend.
the excellent investment rule to protect your money from depreciation is to use delayed gratification by waiting for one year before buying a new phone. wait one year after its release - then it has already lost value - why, will you die if you don't buy the e72 now? if the answer is no, then wait until all the defects in the firmware have been corrected and the price has gone down. then you have saved money by using patience. but if you are terminally ill ,then buy the nokia e72 now.
I got my phone yesterday and I must say that's it nice improvement to the nokia E71, and so far it has not had any problems that I read in the reviews like the space bar not working, or the optical navi. So far I am satisfied with the phone and the battery life is just superb like my E63.

surprise surprise surprise surprise
I have been researching phones the last few months and even though the Hero and the I-phone seem to be ones winning awards I am torn between the E72 and the N97 mini, due to me always having good experiences with Nokia. A full touch screen is not to my liking and I like to press buttons.
There are features in both that I like. I'm not a massive internet user, generally use it to pass the time travelling or if I need to find out something like football results, so the wi fi option is not a must. I also only use hotmail personally and not as a business so e-mail is not essential, but I do text alot. I use phone cameras when I need to and again it's not essential though.
Any replies to this will be greatly appreciated.
