Ani from s60blog has posted up an unboxing video of the recently announced Nokia E75 along with some photos.

Here’s the video.

Did you know that Nokia E75 is the first Eseries that supports N-gage gaming? It also comes with Nokia Messaging service for slick email HTML email support. Plus it’s packing a 3.2 megapixel camera with autofocus, high speed HSDPA access, integrated A-GPS with Nokia Maps, and a music player with a 3.5mm standard audio connector.

Oh btw, here are some photos by Ani.

This is the 2nd part of my simple E71 review! aahha

The interface has definitely improved from the previous model. There are now transitions! OMG! ahahaha

One thing that I really like is the word sugesstions built into its T9. It’s something Nokia users has been longing for years!

New messages and emails wont pop up on screen, instead it will appear in the little messaging tab on the main screen.

A video fo me playing with it. Pardon the blur close up recordings.. N82 no autofocus video recording. lol

The gallery for E71 was a bit boring in my opinion, probably it’s because of the old interface that they use instead of the carousel used for Nseries.

Part 3 tomorrow! Size comparison.

I got the chance to play with the recently announced Nokia E71 and this the first part of my simple review on the phone.

The one I played with was the white version and the moment I held it, it gave me a feeling of total solidness… the whole thing was made out of metal and the front plate was plastic. I’m not a fan of shiny metal so no comment there lol.

The screen is actually the same size as the usual ones on Nseries but they placed it horizontally so users can read more text in 1 line when displaying emails and web.

The back of the phone is made out of textured metal and the camera is placed at the top. The texture allows us to grip it without slipping… which is good.

The keypad gives a good tactile feel and I personally love the 4 shortcut keys to contacts, calendar, messages and menu.

Check back tomorrow for PART 2: Interface and features.

Nokia has recently announced 2 new E Series models at Nokia Connections 2008, Singapore.

Nokia E71

The E71 and the E66 both offers a one touch access to email… with the addition of Microsoft Exchange, the world’s most widely adopted corporate email solution.

With these Nokia Eseries devices, people can get reliable real-time access to their email, calendar, contacts and tasks, as well as download attachments like Word, Excel, Powerpoint or PDF files directly to their devices.

Nokia E66

The E71 comes with a qwerty keyboard which has been improved from previous models.

The 2 models also come with 3.2mpx autofocus camera, 3G, WLAN, AGPS, music player and can support up to 8gb of expandable memory.

Eventhough they sound like an Nseries but there are a few things that divides the 2 series apart. One very obvious example is the 2.5mm headphone jack on the Eseries.
