That's how I see it. I use a E71 on the regular, and have been pleased. But, I think that this E72 should have been, and could have been, what the e72 is. At least as far as the 5MP camera and 3.5mm jack. I like seeing the N and E series Nokia's move closer together. I don't understand the need to separate them so much. Many of you say that Enterprise users have no need for a good camera. I feel that some do, others just want it. I'm one that wants it. I want a device that does it all, not multiple devices. I think what should separate the E and N series is the pre loaded software, and possibly build quality.
Let the E series come with MS Office Editing nativity, along with other software to support business needs. Avoid the bloatware in the E series, but allow a owner to download it if they like. E Series should have higher build quality and the best available battery life. E series should have more timeless and classic appearances than N series. The price points could be higher, with less churn.
Let N series come loaded with with all the Social Networking, Direct photo upload, and other stuff. They don't need native MS Office Support, but should allow it to be Downloaded. The could be built with less metal then E series, and have lower price points. They should be less expensive, and have higher turn over.
BlackBerry Support needs to come back in the E series! If you (Nokia) build better hardware (which you should,) and include your software (which should be better) what do you risk besides converting others to you system. I need to have BlackBerry Messager for my work, so I have to have a BlackBerry, or a old Nokia that supports it. I can't buy a new Nokia device that works for me, and I know their are MANY others like me. At some point some manufactures are going to have a device that meets my needs enough that I will carry one device, I hope it is you. But if I don't change jobs, or you don't bring back BlackBerry support, it won't be a Nokia.
Maybe I'm wrong, I sure some of you will tell me I am. I'd just like to see Nokia bring their focus in on the consumer and meeting the consumer needs. I feel that they are starting to lose some of that focus, buy looking over their shoulder at the competition. I understand loosing market share and profit margins can case a panic, and the first reaction is to say "what are they (the competition) doing?" It simple, they are focusing on consumer needs and filling the void left in your offerings. It seems to me that Nokia of late has been very reactive, and less pro active on their handset side, maybe it's just me. I feel like Nokia is doing a lot of things to say "We've got that too" or, "We can do that" instead of "No one else has ______ like we do" or "What consumers really want and need is _______, let's do it, and do it the best way possible." I want to seem them break out, break ahead, and give us ALL something that makes us say "How did I ever live without this?" I think Nokia has a lot to offer, I own their stock, use their products, and hope to see improvements. They've come along way from a paper company, I want to see them go further still.
Anyhow, all that is way off topic. E72 is better than E71, and I will likely end up buying one as soon as the come down $50 off the launch price. I very much enjoy my E71, and having an improved one will be nice. As of now, no manufacture has a device that meets all my needs.
Zobi, 15 Jun 2009Meh. I thinks E71 looks betterI agree . E71 looks slightly better but only slightly :)
Its much better because of display size 2.4". But it could be much better if size 2.5".
And also Camera, RAM, Processor higher.
I was confused whether to buy E71 or E75 coz both had some minor issues now i think i came to a conclusion to get E72. cant wait for it to be launched. The optical navi key seen in a video seems pretty cool.
i think it will be one of best seller e series beside e63 n e71..so this may be e71 successor..
Anonymous, 15 Jun 2009Initially the voting result was 9.2 in all features...but soon black berry started rating this... morethanks and i see ur point... i don't think that you can compare Windows devices to the Symbian, the Windows is way advanced in my opinion and through my expriance with the 2 OS but i never tried Blackberry
also now the total people that voted for this mobile is 258 why is NOKIA fans why they don't vote for the E72.
honsetly in my opinion i think the E72 is great mobile but still can not be compare to Windows deivces.
really looks alike e71 with the upgrade feature 5 mp n hsupa..the feature really looks alike e71i if e71i is really released..
because if the screen were bigger then the size of the phone would be compromised ...and u would have a brick in your hand ! That's why !
The E-series are a big success for Nokia. excellent quality / OS / Hardware... the only disadvantage the E-seires have is the camera, but after all its a business phone and a camera is not a big of a deal for us business man (you can get the N-Series for that) i have used every E-Series till now from the E50 till the E90 and they r all so gr8.
Excellent job Nokia for the E-series and i am sure the E72 wont fail our expectations.
woooow.. i like this smartphone.... but i prefered it with a bigger screen
Great phone but why still the crappy QVGA 320 x 240 pixels. Why not at least 480x320 like Blackberry????
