Rajeesh this ia anon speaking...correct me if I am wrong but this ia a forum about the merits or lack of, of the Nokia E72 and not about market share. You aren't telling anyone here anything they don't know already but somehow I don't think that the people on this site CARE about market share...they want an E72. So lets focus on the issue at hand the "E72" If Nokia's market share plummets to 10% I won't care, as long as I have my E72 I'm a happy camper.
Friends, this is a link to show you guys that Nokia has in fact lost a major market share mainly because of iphone and Blackberry.
I hope you guys are educated enough to understand when we say a company looses its market share that means it is loosing clients who buy their products.
There are hundereds of facts on various web sites proving the numbers and data.
Some people just come up with big mouth full of filth and want to prove the point that E71 is winner, E72 will be the winner.
OKAY. If it suits you. I never said E71 is bad or E72 will be bad. Infact I am saying E72 will be able to fetch a more client numbers if Nokia start selling it at a affordable price and must put more support to push E72 sales past any other model on planet.
Please follow this link and mind you this is only one of hundreds of links which will show fact that Nokia has lost its grounds recently.
Anonymous, 20 Nov 2009Rajeesh and any BB fan on this site....review after review states the E71 as one of the best. ... moreHi Anonymous, I never said which phone is better BB or Nokia E71, Please read correctly before you comment. But somehow many Nokia Fans ditched Nokia and adopted Blackberry Bold 9000. And mind you Nokia had many models which were best selling but Blackberry had ONE AND ONLY ONE " Bold 9000 " which snatched away a major market share of Nokia. And its not E71 only which lost grounds almost all Nokia top models were badly hit. But nobody can deny Nokia E71 has been a best selling model be it N series or E series. But in the later half of 2009 Bold 9000 ruined all Nokia sales. You better have guts to admit that. Therefore it was my opinion Nokia should not loose its ground now by overpricing E72. It should price it such a way that it becomes a best seller and beat any other model on Planet. I have no doubt whatsover that Nokia E72 is a very good gadget to own.
Anonymous, 20 Nov 2009Rajeesh and any BB fan on this site....review after review states the E71 as one of the best. ... moreforget the awards ....the fact that e71 is largest qwerty selling device ever must prove the fact that bb has bitten dust. but yet not these freaks of nokia haters crop up crazy facts based on their ignorant assumptions. wake up sick fuks...ba11sberry is no match for MIGHTY NOKIA.
sheriff, 20 Nov 2009guys ....no ones giving an insight of the camera...come on. we will just have to wait for gsmarena review,,its still a new fone and still hard to find..
Rajeesh and any BB fan on this site....review after review states the E71 as one of the best. It won PHone and SMARTPHONE of the year awards in 2008. Now the E72 is an upgrade to the 2008 phone of the year and you're saying that BB 9000 is somehow better that the E72 when most wouldn't agree that it was better than the E71....where is your LOGIC. Now I know all of these are opinions but the vast majority of everyday people and the experts who review phones for a living seem to be saying that NOKIA has a winner.
lets see now,,i dont want a bb so guess what?? i am in e72 forum..if you want the bold shouldnt you be in that forum,,wat the hell has the e72 got to do with you,,clear off,go away preaching here..the bb cant even do 10 percent of wat the e72 can do..
Rajesh, 20 Nov 2009Hi Friends, E72 costs USD 480 and E71 USD 275. There is a Huge difference of USD 205. E72 seem... moreHi Rajesh, regarding your somment on how Blackberry Bold is much superior with Nokia E71, i think i have to say that it wont. Since i like to play with my gadget alot, at this time i own e71, e75, i780,and bold 9000. yup all gadget beside e75 is a look alike model with qwerty keypad. Thing that make Bold stand out is the push email connection. And with the new program such as se7en which is a push email program for symbian/winmo models, i dun see where blackberry stand in as a e71 killer/ winmo killer? care to ellaborate on that? :) 3G connectivity, Maps (ur sure want to compare between blackberry Maps with Nokia Maps or Garmin XT), Wifi, Bluetooth (blackberry got a lot of problem with this feature)is all common features that you can find in modern phone now, especially in e71, e75, e72 and i780. :)
My conclusion is that i dont think nokia have lost in a battle with blackberry in terms of E71 vs Bold 9000, its still an even battle. and for your info im going to ditch the Bold 9000 (not into my liking in terms of software varieties and entertainment purposes)just waiting for someone to buy it in the right price. :) :) :)
Hi Friends, E72 costs USD 480 and E71 USD 275. There is a Huge difference of USD 205. E72 seems to be a good Smartphone but looking at the price difference, It will be a better option to wait till the price stabilize around USD 350 to USD 380.
I am sure it wont be long as Blackberry Bold 9000 is standing right in face of Nokia E72 as a solid competitor. It has been a E71 killer and now it will target E72 and help BB 9000 its elder brother BB 9700 is ready to roll out any moment.
I am sure many Nokia fans will not care a damn about Blackberry but nobody can deny that Nokia has lost a vast market share because of Blackberry.
Nokia E72 can only be a winner if Nokia comes up with features, support and pricing which may be able to grasp back the attention of atleast 50% of its old fans who just moved in year 2009 from Nokia to Blackberry team.
Old gimmicks of any mobile company on earth to start sales at higher price and then reduce it with time of 2 or 3 months to 60 or 70% of price at launch and making way to new model which will take place of last model again with higher price : is or will be, I must say history.
These days even 1 month of bad sales or loosing of clients will give a way to another company to grasp the opportunity and bang the target.
Nokia should not loose out on E72. They should be more aggressive in pricing and support. Otherwise Bold 9000 will keep ruling and will be backed by higher priced Bold 9700.
This is actually the best non touch QWERTY phone up to date! And actually the fastest one also! It should stay there for along time I think! The device itself is AWESOME, 5mp, 3,5mm jack, s60 on 600Mhz, accelerometer, gps, wifi in 10mm of thickness! Only xenon flash lacking, if you really use the camera so much! (I dont!)2 bad I already bought E52 (which is all the same except no QWERTY =)

got the brown one, more plastic sides copy of E63. My home button or Menu centre bottom between select and yes always stuck until hard press even lights is seen inbetween. Obvious reason Made in China careless asembly even under Nokia supervision. N71 made n Finland superb mare solid heavy and durable.I regret to sell E 71 at loss and buy Brown at double price 570$.
Wait after N900 release it must settle at 400$.
Flash starts the moment cam inn silly better with cam button no dedicated butt for Camera.
Idots why dying to buy now see fate price of E 71 black now 350$ much better firmware and cheap.

and its getting on my nerves too...i have been waiting from 8 months ...and since never having used e71....i have very high hopes on this one.
i bought mine today and had the same experience like you, the uper buttons and the navi pad seems a little loose. This is the reason i came to this forum to see if someone has the same thoughts. except that, everything is at it's place. it's a greate phone
And one more thing, it's slip cover(i belive this is the term in en)or cloth is so CHEAP. once the phone is in, it stays there.
sheriff, 19 Nov 2009 in india its gonna be anytime after 25 nov ...dont worry...this is from credible sources. @sheriff
where in India do you live ? i'm from Kolkata
