Nokia E61 – “Nokiaberry”
Nokia E61 vs Blackberry 7290
One question then.. how does the Nokia E61 stack up against the Blackberry 7290? The E61 has twice the number of pixels on the display, plus 3G, WiFi and expandable memory. The Blackberry probably has better keyboard ergonomics, and RIM’s transflective display is very impressive. The “footprint” of both devices is very similar, although the Nokia is significantly slimmer. Talktime and battery life on GSM are roughly similar. The Nokia seems to lack the neat holster that the Blackberry comes with though.
Whether or not the E61 is better than a Blackberry is hard to say – Blackberry devices are very focussed on messaging, where the E61 seems to have a little too much going on. Certainly the Nokia E61 is a better phone from looking at the specifications, but Nokia can’t expect an easy ride as they’re up against some tough competition.
Nokia E61: Our Verdict
This is a fine handset, with a very impressive technical specification. If you’re interested in messaging, and are committed to the Nokia/Symbian platform, then this is an excellent device.. compared to a Blackberry.
