Nokia E71 Phone

Nokia is maneuvering itself to get into the world of the data phone with the E71, and they're looking to take a chomp out of the BlackBerry with it. We taste test it for ourselves on today's Gadget Pr0n.

What You Need to Know

  • The E71 is about 9/100 of an inch thinner than the iPhone, as well as a little lighter
  • It has a more metallic feel than the iPhone 3G
  • The screen is the only thing that should be larger; the iPhone's is over 1” larger
  • When setting up e-mail you just have to tap to settings, add account, pick which e-mail you have and start inputting your information; there's no dialog boxes to go through and it's all very graphical
  • On the E71, you get asked numerous questions depending on what kind of e-mail you want to add, and you have to define your connections; It's sort of convoluted
  • The Nokia supports as many email accounts as the iPhone, and once you get into it, it works great
  • The Nokia's directional pad and keyboard are awesome too; the keys seem small but typing is easy
  • The web browser supports Flash so you can view the G4 website and YouTube, but it's not a better surfing experience than the iPhone
  • 3.2 megapixel camera with a flash but photo quality isn't that good
  • Stereo Bluetooth
  • Wi-Fi and 3G
  • Micro-SD up to 8GB
  • Reported 17-20 days standby battery power
  • If you want to be on any carrier, this is an excellent buy; it could even take the place of your Blackberry and you can take it to any network as it comes unlocked
  • If you know you want AT&T, get the iPhone instead


  • $450
