The E71 comes in several different radio configurations, including one specifically supporting U.S. 3G bands. This means you can use the phone to access AT&T's HSPA network. The phone comes with Nokia's S60 Browser, which is highly capable and does a good job of rendering html web pages.

The S60 browser does a good job of pulling down full web pages even with EDGE coverage. Using 3G or Wi-Fi to browse the web simply makes it all the faster. We were able to get good performance from the E71 when compared to several other phones, and it bested the 3G iPhone in loading certain sites, such as CNN, Google and The New York Times.

The browser also offers lots of rich features, including the minimap to let you see an overview of each page you are browsing. The "back" feature also lets you see multiple web pages, so you can choose the exact page to which you wish to navigate.

S60 can be customized to such a large degree, that we don't even know where to start. Just about every screen, menu, level, setting or option imaginable can be altered to better suit users' tastes.

The home screen can be viewed with nothing on it but wallpaper or with the Active Standby mode on. The main menu can be set to grid or list views, depending on your preferences. Ringtones are fully customizable for each contact, and can be set to music files that are on the phone. Wallpapers are easily set from the gallery application.

The ability to move applications and folders to other places on the phone is extremely helpful. You can go to the S60 web site and find free themes and wallpapers to download.
