NOKIA E63 Mobile Phone

Nokia E63 mobile phone
Nokia announced the latest addition to its E-Series mobile phone range, the Nokia E63, designed for people who need to manage their business and personal lives equally well. Building on the success of the Nokia E71 business mobile phone, the company's flagship messaging phone, the Nokia E63 brings the QWERTY keyboard form factor to a broader audience at a great price. The Nokia E63 mobile phone also includes Files on Ovi, a service where people can get remote access to their Personal Computer files even when their computer is offline. Anyone buying the new Nokia E63 handset will have access to 1GB of online file storage for free.


It'd be easy to call the Nokia E63 a thicker, plasticky version of the Nokia E71 and call it a day, but that'd be unfair to the E63. Admittedly, we do miss the steel chassis and sleeker profile of the E71, but the E63 isn't an ugly beast. In fact, it's quite attractive and as a more consumer-centric device, Nokia brings a fresher, hipper look to the smartphone by offering the phone in red or blue.

The Nokia E63's feature set is largely like the Nokia E71, except it lacks GPS and is equipped with a 2-megapixel camera instead of a 3.2-megapixel camera. Nokia point out some of the highlights and differences in the Performance section here, but for more information about the Nokia E63's feature set, please check out their own site.

Product summary

The good: The sleek Nokia E63 offers a full QWERTY keyboard and full e-mail capabilities. The Symbian smartphone has integrated Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and 3G support. It's also one of the more affordably priced unlocked phones.

The bad: The smartphone lacks integrated GPS, and call quality could be better. The camera doesn't produce the best pictures, and there's no side-mounted volume rocker.

The bottom line: The Nokia E63 offers a more wallet-friendly price tag compared to other unlocked smartphones and does so without sacrificing too many features; we just we wish the call quality and camera were better.

Specifications: Band / mode: WCDMA (UMTS) / GSM 850/900/1800/1900 ; Talk time: Up to 660 min ; Combined with: With digital camera / digital player / FM radio
