Here are some comparison pictures of the Nokia C3 with Nokia’s best QWERTYs like Nokia E71 and Nokia E72. C3 is the first entry level full QWERTY phone from Nokia and it runs on S40 OS while the E71 and E72 run on Symbian
The Nokia E71 was (and still is, in many person’s opinions) the king of candybar QWERTYs from Nokia & Symbian. But the E71 is now 2 years old and has been replaced by a new iteration, the Nokia E72, and surprisingly another design, the E5. From the looks of it, the E5 is to the E72 what the E63 was to the E71 (no, this isn’t an IQ test question), a cheaper version that compromises on some aspects while still trying to retain the charming points of the original.
Below, is a point-by-point table comparison à-la-Steve Litchfield, between the E72 & E5, with the godfather of the two, the E71, thrown in for good measure. You can click on the image to access a slightly larger version. Continue reading “QWERTY Battle: E5, E71, E72 Extensive Table & Pictures Comparison”
We recently got our hands on the Nokia E5, Nokia’s latest Eseries device after the E72. The E5 came alone in an envelope, so we couldn’t really unbox it, but we’ve taken it for a spin to show it to you from all angles.
The E5 bares a lot of resemblance, hardware-wise and specs-wise with the Nokia E72. It’s a candybar qwerty, and anyone who has used an E71 or E72 will find himself at home with the qwerty keyboard. It’s the same texture as both of its predecessors, with the same rounded keys, and a nice feedback to them. On top of it is a 2.4″ screen, 256k colors, with a light sensor and the ear piece.
We had the chance to play with the the upcoming Nokia C3 which saw a great response in Indonesia. Nokia had launched this device along with the E5 and C6 in April . This handset is expected to be launched in India soon at the Rs.5000 price point . We have already showed you a lot of Photos , live pics and videos . We wanted to share our initial impressions of the C3 in this preview. You can check our video and more pics after the jump !
Nokia E72 is available only in 3 colors now – white , black and topaz . But now there is a new color which landed on the Nokia europe site – Amethyst , we prefer to call it simply Purple
Roughly a Week ago I was offered to trial a Nokia E72 by my good Friends of WOM World Nokia. Already having experienced the Awesomeness that was the Nokia E71, i was very eager to get my Hands its Successor. Filled in the Trial Form, sent it back to WOM World and here we go, the Adventure that is the E72 begins:
I received the Box on late Friday afternoon and went to work with it on Saturday Morning. After i first took the Device in my Hands i’ve decided to come up with a few Words to the Person who trialed the E72 before me: You’re in a very elite Group, Pal. You have the Privilege to get your Hands on one of Nokia’s latest Devices. The Handset came in a Condition that some of my 2 year old Phones not even look like. The Screen is scratched, some Corners look like they’re losing small Chips of Chrome the hard way. So in my Opinion the Device has been dropped and not at all been taken care of. If you don’t know how to treat a Test Device, you better leave them to People who do. Seriously, you don’t deserve it. Not cool.

Just before MWC 2010 started on Monday , Sony Ericsson had a press conference at Opium Mar in Barcelona and we brought you some live pictures from the event. One of the handsets which was interesting for the newly announced Sony Ericsson Aspen which is a Touchscreen QWERTY running on Windows Mobile 6.5.3
After the explosive rise of touchscreen phones in the market , We are so used to touch that sometimes we even tap the screens on non-touch phones unintentionally. Looks like Sony Ericsson wants to capitalize on this and the the Aspen promises the best of the both the Touch and QWERTY worlds. It packs a 3.2 Megapixel Camera and a 3.5mm audio jack.
