Nokia E71
 

Nokia E71

17 June 2008
Written by Mike Meers

The E71 is a new S60 handset from Nokia dedicated to providing the best e-mail experience possible, with support for Microsoft Exchange, Nokia Intellisync, POP3, IMAP, and many other third party e-mail services right out of the box. Additional features include a 3.2mpx digital camera, full 2G and 3G connectivity, WiFi, microSD memory card support, and a built-in GPS chipset.

With the E71 Nokia have done their best to ensure e-mail access on the go is easy to install, easy to configure, and easy to use. For those who use Microsoft Exchange for their work or home e-mail, the E71 is ready to go with the pre-installed Mail for Exchange application.

The standard messaging application has preloaded settings for more than a thousand internet service providers around the world, as well as popular free services such as Gmail, Yahoo! mail and Hotmail. Other POP/IMAP e-mail servers can be added so you can have all your e-mail addresses at your fingertips.

Nokia’s Intellisync Wireless E-mail Solution is also supported, and third party e-mail solutions such as System Seven and Visto Mobile can also be added to the list.

To ensure your mail is never unavailable, the E71 is quad-band 2G and quad-band 3G network compatible. GSM 850, 900, 1800, and 1900MHz networks are supported with GPRS and EDGE data protocols, and WCDMA 850, 900, 1900, and 2100MHz supported with HSDPA and WCDMA data protocols.

Just in case that isn’t enough, Nokia have thrown in WLAN 802.11b/g network support for cheap Internet access across the popular wireless protocol. Seamless switching between mobile phone networks and local WLAN’s is just another part of the package.

The E71 is equipped with a full QWERTY keyboard for speedy typists, and a large 2.36” TFT LCD with 240 x 320 pixel resolution, and support for up to 16.7 million colours. The handset runs Nokia’s famous S60 user interface with Symbian OS 9.2 and has physical one-touch keys for Home, Calendar, Contacts, and E-mail.

Just like a real computer, the E71 has real-time auto-completion, auto-correction, and error-free typing.

A new feature found in the E71 is the ability to create two customized “home screens” with Active Standby plug-ins and applications, offering a fast and easy way to switch between business and personal usage of the handset.

Up to 110MB of the E71’s internal memory is user accessible, and you can go further by way of a microSD memory card. Cards up to 8GB in size are supported!

The E71 has two cameras: a 3.2mpx camera for image and video capture, and a VGA camera for video calling. The 3.2mpx digital camera has auto-focus, an LED flash, and a range of advanced configuration settings. Video can be recorded at up to 22fps in VGA (640 x 480 pixel) resolution.

Furthering the handset’s feature list is the built-in aGPS chipset. With Nokia Maps pre-installed, the E71 will be able to guide you out of difficult moments on the road with turn-by-turn navigation.

Multimedia hasn’t been left out of the E71 and the handset comes with Nokia’s proprietary 2.5mm AV connector for high quality audio output. The A2DP Bluetooth stereo profile is also supported. Nokia have included a Music Player, Media Player, and Visual Radio application, too.

The Nokia E71 will be available in two colour variations (Grey steel and white steel) when it is made available in Q3 2008.
