Nokia E72 The latest full-QWERTY keyboard Eseries tunes into the needs of busy working people. The Nokia E72, fast, full of resources, sports a slim profile. Many of its biggest strengths are around the richness of the out-of-the-box email and instant messaging experience. The E72 develops on the huge success and popularity its predecessor, the E71, by adding great new features and improvements. It now provides the desktop-like interface so popular in the E75, as well as combining multiple business and personal email in-boxes into one. You can now also connect to your favorite IM accounts direct from the home screen. There is improved speed of Internet up- and down-links too - plus enhanced navigation with compass, integrated Nokia maps. Add to that a 5-megapixel camera, standard headphone jack - plus lifetime licenses for some email and navigation services - and you can see the Nokia E72 raises the bar for quality and performance in a business-focused mobile companion. Nokia E72 - Key features
  • Combine all your emails into one inbox, for life. It's a snip to set up from the home screen - and includes Mail for Exchange, IBM Lotus Notes Traveler for corporate email, as well as Yahoo!

  • Instant Messaging in an instant - easy steps to set-up from the home screen to access services like Yahoo! Messenger, Google Talk and Ovi.

The E72 brings some upgrades to my notice so its quite a nice phone.


The great upgrades from the E71 model.

The Design of E71 to E72 did not change much.

Does the E72 prove that Nokia needs a giant kick in the ass?

So, getting back to the E72. It’s a very good phone. If you have the E71 and have a free upgrade due, get it. But don’t break your back for it, because it’s not good enough. Nokia: please give us E71 owners the E72 we are hoping for. Read more here: Gearburn review

Better camera (moving from 3.2 to 5 megapixels). But exactly the same screen. Yes, it has a faster processor (369MHz ARM11 bumped up to 600MHz) and more internal memory – but the only time you’ll notice this is when loading cumbersome websites.

But the software? Ugh. Buggy as hell. There’s a whole bunch of bits written by one group (Ovi Mail) that doesn’t talk to another group (device’s built-in POP mail support), so both compete. Ovi has no mechanism to upload a picture and then share it to Facebook.

The Nokia E72 disappoints

Freezes every couple of minutes, pathetic battery life (less than 18 hours), slow.
