Nokia E63 – a budget QWERTY smartphone
Nokia has officially announced the latest addition toits E-Series line up of business devices, the E63.At a first glance, one might think that it is a new color for the E71but there are major differences between the two. The E63 is cheaperthan its cousin and is touted for its social networking features.

Similar to theE71, the E63 also comes with the ability to switch modes which resultsin changing the phone's outlook from work to personal and vice versa.The 2.5mm jack on the E71 has been changed to 3.5mm on the E63 enablingusers to plug in standard headsets when they want to listen to musicand like the majority of Nokia phones, the E63 also supports the A2DPprofile for connecting Bluetooth headsets. Oneof the major downgrades on the E63 is the camera, from 3.2 to 2 megapixel resolution. Another major differencebetween the two is that the Ctrl and Char keys are separate on the E63as on the E71, they both are on one. This has resulted in a smallerspace key on the E63.

The E63 is to come in twocolors, Ultramarine Blue and Ruby Red. Although it is a quad band phonefor GSM, it will be available in three variants for 3G connectivity:

E63-1Quad-band EGSM 850/900/1800/1900, WCDMA 900/2100 - forEurope
