Hands-on with the Nokia E72
Not being a die-hard business customers but fall for a business-oriented handset all the same is something rather uncommon, but that´s exactly what happened when we tested the Nokia E71
last year. We fell for the cell phone on the spot, despite the few annoying issues that seemed to plague the handset. What we´ve got in our hands now is the heir apparent, the Nokia E72
and what we´ve seen so far tells us it´s far superior to its predecessor in every single respect.
The phone retains both the high build quality and compact size of the Nokia E71, but adds extra features like 5-megapixel camera (instead of 3.2
), flash, 3.5mm jack and optical pad. The function keys have flattened and feel quite easier to press. The several minutes we´ve spent with the handset show us the keyboard has been vastly improved and its buttons now have proper, pronounced travel. The phone comes with pre-installed copy of Nokia Messaging to help you set up multiple email accounts in seconds.
At first glance, the Nokia E72 looks like quite a promising business smartphone, so stay tuned for our upcoming review of the Nokia E72!
