Where's the 3G video calling?
PS all of these look pretty nice
To be ...
the e70 has a camera but it will only be edge in the united states, but it will be on a 3g network in asia and eu...
If they were smart...
Beautiful looking series. I have my eye on the E61.
The timing doesn't work...
Great phones, but Nokia is ?!?
And why, given it's a quad band w/ North Amer. 850 + WCDMA2100, is the phone only on Nokia's European site? Even a search at nokiausa.com for any instance of E61 yeilds zip. Prob. because they want to sell as many 6682's as they can, given the bungled release of that phone. It's a world phone, fer christs sake.
SO MUCH FOR THE N-SERIES
i admit... i like these a lot. not sure if i should go with the E70 or the 6280
There's not much point in going beyond 1.3 Mpixels if you're going to cripple the camera with a pinhole lens.
SymbianOS 9.1: phone company controls apps
http://www.symbian.com/technology/symbos-v91-det.htm ... »
Platform security is extended in Symbian OS v9, providing control over the capabilities of applications installed on the devices. This is done to ensure the integrity of the phones and the network, while still enabling an open environment for third party applications.
Integrity of the network, my *ss. It's about revenue integrity.
But I'll be very happy to be proven wrong.
That E70 might be the closest thing to a perfect phone I've ever seen.
I don't know about anyone else, but these phones might be the best business class handsets I've ever come across. Nice job Nokia.
well done nokia!
