The Nokia E series has traditionally been an uninspiring collection of boxy phones, but last year saw a dramatic upturn in its fortunes. The Nokia E51 and E65 took the market by storm — and it wasn’t just businessmen buying them. The E series is beginning to look as attractive as its multimedia N-series siblings.
The Nokia E71 is the Finnish giant’s latest addition to the E series and will be available in July. Pricing is set to be around €350 (around ?280) SIM-free, and it will most likely be free on a monthly contract. But will it be another email knockout?
The E71 is one of Nokia’s most attractive smart phones to date. Many phones with Qwerty keypads lack a certain finesse, but the E71 wouldn’t look out of place in an Aston Martin. Not only does it look good, its attractive metal casing feels very classy and it’s not too heavy or too light.
A 10mm thick profile ensures it fits inside a pocket comfortably, even though it’s wider than your average handset. The screen and Qwerty keypad are well laid-out — a series of shortcut keys below the screen make it easy to access your emails, calendar and contacts. Although the keys are small, they’re very usable, because each is raised, making it easy to distinguish between them. In fact, the E71′s keypad is one of the best Qwerty keypads we’ve ever laid fingers on.
