And the E71 Gets Reviewed…(No Real Verdict Though)

June 20, 2008 in Nokia Phone Reviews

The folks at Engadget managed to snag a brand-spanking new E71 and put it through its paces. Unfortunately, the verdict is really more of an observation than anything: “As for accomplishing what it sets out to do, the E71 manages it all with style, providing a plethora of features in a speedy, beautiful and miniscule device.”

Well, at least there’s lots of pictures.

Nokia E71 reviewed by Engadget

So I’ve taken the liberty of breaking down the review for you:

The Good

  • Stylish
  • Thinnest QWERTY device around
  • “Comfortable to hold and use”
  • Better keyboard than the rough E62 predecessor
  • Strong set of software included – Maps, Share on Ovi/Flickr, S60 Browser
  • “Zippy” load time

The Bad

  • Too many button presses to accomplish tasks
  • Smaller screen thanks to smaller device size
  • Media playback interface not up to par
  • Unsubsidized by AT&T = freakin’ expensive
