Why the Nokia E71 is My Dream Phone
There really is no point in writing a review about the Nokia E71. It’s been out for a few months, visible enough to enjoy reviews from big-time sites like Engadget and All About Symbian. So I’ve decided to sum up just what makes this phone so appealing to me.
The keyboard. The E71 builds on the inroads made by the E51 and E61i, featuring a keyboard that’s easy to type on. After a day’s practice, I was cranking out entire articles in no time.
The features. So many features in a 10mm-thick tablet! Aside from the keyboard, you’ve got a camera with flash, music and video playback, Bluetooth, WiFi, HSDPA, microSD, a loud speaker, and business-oriented functionality like support for email and Microsoft Office. Oh, and Nokia’s web browser is good.
The battery. Personal experience: the battery dies after two to three days of usage, even under heavy use. This phone’s battery, nested snugly under a steel backplate, looks big enough to occupy nearly a half of the gadget’s internal space.
The price. The Nokia E71 isn’t a brand-new model, and it’s safe to say that newer phones like the Nokia N96 can do more. But this also means the E71 is more affordable than when it first came out, simply because models enjoy price drops as they grow older.
And that, my friends, is why I hope to own a Nokia E71 by the start of next year!
