Nokia E71 test

T he time a business mobile phone was simple and boring is in the past. Business and private are being united. The genuine corporate mobile companies such as the BlackBerry creators, aim more and more at the private user, whilst Samsung and Nokia in turn serve the business user Business cell phones of Samsung are found in the i-series. Nokia serves the business user with their E-series. In addition to a compact slider, the E66, Nokia has introduced the E71. Nokia business phones have a neat design and feature many functionalities. That's the reason more and more private phone users end up going for a mobile phone from the corporate segment.

First impression of the Nokia E71 handset

The Nokia E71 cell phone stands out for its efficient design. The package is carried out in red and white, and the handset is displayed. It's easy to recognize the Nokia E71 by its full QWERTY keyboard, the metal/aluminum coating and the slim design. Standard included together with the Nokia E71 are a battery charger, a headset, a pouch, a software CD and the users guide. The sleek back of the cell phone looks somewhat scratch-prone, however, it doesn't seem too bad, although sticky fingerprints are left behind on it constantly. Other than that, the cell phone has an attractive appearance.

QWERTY keyboard of the Nokia E71

The full keyboard the Nokia E-71 features, is rather small, yet operation is quite easy thanks to the round buttons. It does take time getting used to them, although with a bit of practice you should soon be able to type fast using two fingers. This facilitates sending text messages and e-mails with this phone and makes it more appealing. Thanks to the compact design of the keyboard, the Nokia E71's width has been kept nicely in proportion.
