Nokia E65 vs E61

The most successful E-series business phone from Nokia so far is the E61. A few days ago Nokia released a new model on the series, the E65. If you can’t decide which one of the two you want, here is a list of their differences.

Nokia E61:
+1 point: Larger, 2.8″ QVGA landscape screen (better for office, video)
+1 point: miniSD (cheaper per MB than microSD)
+1 point: more internal flash memory
+1 point: qwerty keyboard
+1 point: better battery life

Nokia E65:
+1 point: 2MP camera
+1 point: 352×288 CIF video recording
+1 point: Newer software in updated S60 3.0 version
+1 point: smaller/lighter device than E61

As you can see, the two devices are pretty similar overall. Your choice must just be a matter of your need of a qwerty keyboard over a camera. Of course, if the E61 had a camera, I would not even consider the E65 (the E70 has a camera, but it is not quad-band and its latest firmware version is older so it doesn’t work well with VoIP).

Stefan, the 6110 is NOT a smartphone. It is based on the S40 platform, not the S60. For me, feature phones don’t hold a candle compared to smartphones. They are just not interesting.

The E61i is indeed a better choice. It is E61+camera, in reality. And that’s good. But stay away from the S40 phones if you are a power user.

Eugenia, you are wrong… The Nokia 6110 Navigator is a S60 3rd Edition, with Feature Pack 1…

Anyway, I vote for the ultimate enterprise device, the E90…

Why not go with the E61i?

Or how about the 6110 Navigator which has the same specs as the E65 + GPS?

I plan to write a blog post about that. E65 vs 6110.

Ah, I c. Thanks for letting me know, I really thought it was S40.

However, I still don’t like the 6110, because it does not have VoIP+Wifi.
