Spoke to a Nokia priority dealer in Hyderabad india yesterday and he has no clue when the phone would be coming. He said it could be in 5 days or 15 days or a month. It seems that Nokia is keeping customers as well as its dealers in the dark about the release of its phone.
A web place which cant name cause mods wont let it thru was doing it on 3rd nov now today its 30 nov.??? it well known place but this is a joke now as you get near the date for buying and its cancelled and this is the fourth time its changed date..well thats me gone for something else now..
guyz, you have to ask one valid question, why has nokia delayed this set from being released. i have spoken to various retailers and they said customers are fed up with waiting and have gone either to blacberrys or to sony ericson. if nokia keeps up the way they doing business, they will loose customers.
This is taking soooo long, my phoned pretty much ready for the trash can, and it won't stay together much longer. If this phone isn't available within a week, I'll have no choice but to settle for the N97mini.
i think it fulfill the full requirement of a businessman..........
Can we hear from anobody from the GSMArena admins from where did they get the availability information?
Those lucky few, the elite who have already got the E72, please put an indepth review on this site and on youtube. I believe it is available worldwide but at present, like finding a needle in a haystack. I am just happy some people do have it as it illustrates that it is really available. By December, it will be universally available worldwide in bulk and in my opinion. You will only get it now if you have connections. Yet again, I suggest everybody to exercise more patience. Iphone fans waited a year for the overated 3GS. We'll be waited for nearly 5 months for a superior product. Be patient and it will be worth it. I can't find any other Nokia phone I want anyway. I only use Nokia so will stick to this as I want it so badly. Other phone brands are good too but I feel extremely confident and comfortable with Nokia. I currently own a Nokia 5800 which is tremendous. However I crave buttons again and have never had an E series phone before. Watching and waiting - Watching and waiting.

Below is our chart of battery times we managed to squeeze out of the E72:
•GPS-navigation - 6.5 hours
•Video playback - 7 hours 50 minutes
•WEB-surfing (EDGE) - 5 hours
•Music (in earphones) - 32 hours
•Wi-Fi (non-stop data upload) - 8 hours for non-stop data transfer, 110 hours of standby (according to Nokia)
Feelin more positive about e72,nearly bought e71 instead but glad i held on ...
