The Nokia E71 has recently been approved by the FCC and will be available in the stores. At this moment it is not offered with a contract agreement by any U.S. mobile phone carrier, but it probably will be. When it is, you might be able to get it for a cheaper price as the unlocked version costs about $500.
The Nokia E71 has been dubbed the slimmest smartphone made and with a good reason. It measures only 10 mm in thickness. As slim as it might be the N71 comes with some very useful features.
It has a full QWERTY keyboard which eases the process of writing an email or chatting on your Internet Messenger. The device has quad-band GSM and dual-band HSDPA connectivity, WiFi and built-in GPS. In addition it employs Nokia Maps for a good navigation system. Other software equipment include a capable HTML browser, advanced email capabilities, Push to Talk, Microsoft Office support.
The multimedia part is acceptably covered by a 3.2 megapixel camera with auto focus, flash and video recording. Entertainment is not missing as the device has music and video players, FM radio. Nokia E71 was built to run Symbian 9.2 S60 3rd Edition.
Not a bad phone, but it is unknown which mobile phone operator will release the device under a contract so users won’t spend $500 on an unlocked version. In any case, when they do you might be able to buy the N71 to half of its unlocked version’s price.
