Nokia’s E63 is a mixed bag. It’s the lower-priced version of the popular E71 Blackberry-ish phone, retaining most of the E71′s feature set with some minor additions and subtractions. Here’s what you get: a 3.5 mm stereo jack and better battery life (by half an hour). Here’s what you lose: integrated GPS and 3.2 megapixel camera (it’s been downgraded to a 2 megapixel).

But love it or hate it, you pretty much have to agree the price is right: only $279 unlocked for a Series 60 smartphone with a very usable keyboard and US-compatible 3G. That’s a damn good price. On a smaller note, you also get your choice of two colors, Ruby Red or Ultramarine Blue.

The phone is expected to be available soon in the usual channels: the two flagship stores in NYC and Chicago, NokiaUSA.com, and other fine retailers (Amazon).
