The Nokia E62 Review- smartphone for the masses?

The Nokia E62 Review- smartphone for the masses?

Mobile productivity fanatics are having a good Fall 2006- along with the Motorola Q and the Treo 680, Nokia has also jumped into the game with a smartphone meant to reach more than just the average business consumer. As first reported by SlashGear on September 12th , and regardless of their hopes, the Nokia E62 is another productivity-driven smartphone that is most suitable for business people on the go. Released on September 29th and available exclusively through Cingular Wireless, the E62 is the U.S. version of the E61, which has been available in Europe since earlier this year. Nokia designed the E62 as an attempt to bridge the gap between corporate users and everyday people, and priced it at an affordable $199 with a 2-year contract, and even as low as $150 with a mail-in rebate from Cingular.

SlashGear’s September Review

SlashGear’s September Review

Blimey, it's been quite a month.  SlashGear has been packed to the metaphorical gills with lovely juicy tech, and they don't come much juicier than the fresh fruit of Apple.  The Cupertino cuties have been making headlines with their new iPod range - the updated fifth generation and the rather mini-like Nano with its svelte metal casing.  It's not all been good news, however, as the latest update to OS X causes some users problems and the company is forced to admit that some MacBooks are suffering random shutdown issues.

Also taking a beating is Sony, who just can't seem to ride the PS3 wave smoothly these days.  First shipping numbers are way way down on what was expected - thanks to manufacturing delays - and then, if you managed to find a console, your wallet will get gouged when you buy a game for it.  We're talking $76 to $84, which is heavy stuff on top of a machine costing $425 upwards.  Sony attempted to stem the bad press by taking $59.99 game pre-orders, but is it enough?

Vaja E61 case reviewed

Vaja E61 case reviewed

So you've impressed your friends, family and even yourself with your new Nokia E61.  They marvel at its thumb keyboard, gasp at its bright, clear screen, coo with appreciative glee at the slick menus and operation.

And then you drop it on the floor and it gets a ruddy great scratch across it.  All of a sudden, nobody invites you to parties anymore.  Elderly women spit at you in the street.

Andrew Liszewski is a lucky E61 owner and also pretty damn careful about not letting his cellular pride and joy come to any harm.  Having stored it in an old iPaq case at first, he has eventually given it the respect it deserves and invested in a Vaja leather case.

Is it any good?  Is $60 a ridiculous amount of money to spend on a case?  Do sheep have hidden compartments where they store knitting needles?  Two of these questions are answered in Andrew's lovely review.

HTC Excalibur Is T-Mobile Dash

HTC Excalibur Is T-Mobile Dash

Words cannot even begin to describe how awesome the HTC Excalibur feels in the palm of your hand, and watching videos only gets you there half way. You just need to hold it to understand why I’m giving the HTC Excalibur Best In Show at CTIA Wireless IT and Entertainment in LA 2006. I’ll elaborate more on this in a later article when I do a side-by-side comparison between the HTC Excalibur and Nokia’s E62 smartphone.

HTC Excalibur Is T-Mobile DashThe HTC Excalibur is also known as the XDA Cosmo, available in Germany through O2 network. There are rumblings that T-Mobile will score the HTC Excalibur; called Dash. I confirm this report thanks to a shot I’d captured during my photo shoot at the show. Check out the screen shot below showing the T-Mobile logo. Also, thanks to a screen shot via MoDaCo, shows the Dash’s System Information revealing the model name as T-Mobile Dash. More after the jump!

Unboxing the Nokia E70 Smartphone

Unboxing the Nokia E70 Smartphone

While it’s still very early to provide an accurate feedback on the Nokia E70 smartphone, I do want to say a few things. The split keyboard is somewhat of an acquired taste. Similar to sushi, once you’re hooked on it; you’re pretty much hooked. However, I prefer the full time availability of the keyboard on the E61 (click to watch the unboxing of the Nokia E61). The other BIG difference that creates the urge to run back to the E61 is the screen size. The screen size on the E70 is much smaller, compared to the E61 . Nonetheless, the screen is still very beautiful and the text is super clear. I’m annoyed by the very limited shared memory allocated to the web browser. For a super smartphone with WiFi, there’s just not enough memory for browsing. I’m definitely going to contact Nokia to get an explanation on this. Click over to watch the unboxing video.
