Nokia E62 Review

Connectivity and Data:

Bluetooth functionality is simple to use. We were able to transfer several pictures, audio files and an Excel spreadsheet using bluetooth and a computer. The E62 uses version 2.0 and supports up to 6 simultaneous connections. We only used two at one time, a headset and a GPS receiver. When I received a call as the GPS was running, the phone call took over. Within seconds of hanging up, the E62 and the GPS receiver synced and updated my location on the route I had mapped. Supported profiles include HSP, HFP, DUN, OPP, FTP, SAP and BIP.

The E62 supports full HTML as well as WAP. Using Cingular’s Media Net, the pages appear as they do on a standard device and load rather quickly with 3 bars of service. We was able to click back and forward without waiting for the page to download again, which supports Nokia’s claim that recent pages are cached on the device. Full HTML functions the pretty much the same way, but included a mini page feature. If you hold down the joystick in any given direction a mini webpage appears allowing you to see your location on a given page and quickly moving to the desired location on the page.


The E62 plays audio files using the speaker, or with a headset. While using the speaker option, the music sounded fine with the volume up about three quarters of the way. If you turn it all the way up, it sounds a little distorted. A headset fixed that problem; we had the volume all the way up with no issues. The overall interface for playing music was pretty easy to get used to, especially since you can categorize by play list, artist and genre.


At 75 MB, the E62 has virtually no problem with internal memory and a small assortment of downloaded programs. Using an external memory card you can greatly expand the software capabilities, but expect your programs to lag slightly, especially when running programs from the card itself. It wasn’t too frustrating, but it is noticeable.

Java versions MIDP 2.0 and CLDC 1.1 are supported. We experienced no problems with any programs that use JAVA, with the exception of when we had to access something stored on the memory card as we stated earlier.
