Nokia E63 – a budget QWERTY smartphone4
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:
