[Updated] E71 – E-Series leader not for long? E72 revealed!

Currently Nokia E71 and its slider type sister (E66) are definitely top E-Series phones. Today I read information which could mean that E71 won’t stay a business flagship for long! Unofficial video showing two models: E72 and E75 has been released on the web. Nokia E72 looks very similar to E71 plus is shown in really sexy red. Potential Nokia E75 also presented on the video is more like E51 with side hiding QWERTY keyboard. The same way of hiding QWERTY keyboard is common for some models of HTC or announced lately LG’ Prada II. Unfortunately there are no further specifications or release dates available.

[Update]: Unfortunately a leaked video of E72 and E75 has been removed from the web, but we have a few more details about E71’ successor thanks to the video analysis and checking Nokia servers offering devices profiles. The main hardware change would be a better camera, probably with 5 Mpix matrix, Carl Zeiss lenses and real flash instead of LED. Regarding its name there is a possibility that finally the devices will be named as E63.

    Not sure what would this mean for the owners of E71 / can we still await for a firmware update or the Noki would just focus on the new models?

    Hi! Does anyone know of a way: I want to use my 71 as a keyboard for my Playstation 3?

    This is not a big deal. The e72 is an e71 with a sexy colored shell. Take a deep breath.

    Hi slapyomammy,

    You are right that so far, without any specification, it’s not a big deal. Today I’ve read that the E72 has different keyboard (smaller space bar), and could have better camera (with optics and real flash). What I am concerned about is the software update. I wouldn’t be happy if E71 would be treated as E61 vs. E61i. We’re all waiting for software update right? 🙂

    Check out the pictures at http://www.engadget.com/2008/09/19/nokias-e72-slider-and-e75-candybar-with-qwerty-keyboards-leaked/ for those who missed them.

    This will keep happening where new improved models will be there soon after the release of a new version. Accept that you would be better off.

    Another question I have is that why should one buy E71 and not E51 and save a couple of hundred dollars? Agreed the camera is a disadvantage but from what I hear the E71 camera is not great as well.

      E51 lacks:
      full qwerty keyboard (some of us write a lot of business related e-mails);
      GPS (some of us like to have navigator handy)
      WiFi (some of us use internet telephony)

      Other than that I have an E51 also, which is soon to be replaced with an E55.

    I think it will just like the E61 vs the E62 not the E61i

    Correct me if i’m wrong but I think E62 is US variant for E61? E72 now a.k.a. E53 seems to have some hardware changes, but what really matters.. let’s hope there will be software update for our E71 soon 🙂
