Nokia E75 - Work & Play

Till recently, Nokia’s E-series smartphones were bulky business devices, a household name for enterprise users but cursed with form factors that wouldn’t have been out of place in the 90s. But Nokia has blurred that line between work and play with the E66 and the E71 and now they have got the E75.

The E75 is very similar to the E71 in terms of specs and functionality.Similiar screen, similar processor, similar connectivity options. But still, it has got something new to offer. It had got a regular numeric keyboard as well as a side-slide-out QWERTY keyboard. It’s numeric keypad is a bit cramped, but the QWERTY keyboard makes up for that.

The E75 also has an improved Messaging Application service, bringing together the Nokia Email service and the Mail For Exchange into a single user interface.

The E75 had got a 1000 mAh battery as compared to the 1500 mAh of the E71, but since the E75 has Feature Pack 2, it brings in some battery management enhancement which makes the nattery of the E75 last a bit longer.Further, Nokia has also added USB charging.

The display at 2.4 inches is a bit small for a phone of this category, but is acceptable in terms of both brightness and contrast.It has  a 3.2 MP camers with LED flash, mp3 player, A-GPS with Nokia Maps, HSPDA, 8 GB micro SD card which is extendable upto 16 GB.It runs on Symbian OS v9.3.

So Nokia has tried to maintain the winning formula and provided a form factor alternative.But yeah, it’s pricier than the E71.So is the spacious keyboard worth paying the extra bucks???
