I have finally purchased the all in one wonder Nokia E61i three days back and its only now that i have freed myself to write this post. Actually its not just a mobile phone its a small PC in your pocket. The best Nokia phone i have ever seen in terms of features and pricing.
What made me zeroed upon Nokia E61i ?
I was looking for a mobile phone which should have all the basic features plus some smartphone features which would help me in increasing my productivity atleast a little but 😉 . So i started hunting down for mobile phones 10 days back. First i was not sure that i wanted to buy a smartphone as they are too costly for me to afford so i have three phones in mind :
Sony Ericsson K550i Price Rs 8,500/-
Nokia xpress 5700 Price Rs 12,000/-
Nokia N73 ME Price Rs 15,200/-
The idea of purchasing Nokia prism 7500 at Rs 9,500/- also ran across my mind but really i don’t like prism design the only thing i like about prism 7500 is their TV commercial with a beautiful model..really that model is too sexy…I strongly feels that Nokia people should give the models name in their commercials so that we can google search the models for more pics 😛 just kiddin..
Now 5 days back i really have no idea what E61i is, while surfing the August Digit magazine which has 39 cellphone tested i came across E61 and E62 again these phones are brilliant but camera is missing then i searched google for E61 and get across E61i and whooaa all the irregularities from the E61 is removed in E61i and they have added a two megapixel camera also, then my next move was to hunt for it reviews and video reviews at youtube .
So for two days straight i read over 100 Editors and user reviews about E61i and found 99% of them to be positive Plus i watched 20+ youtube videos from Unboxing to GPS and Camera reviews…
And 3 days back i have purchased E61i(Rs 16,750/-) and i am more than happy and completely satisfied by my purchase The only problem i faced was its Wi-Fi not configuring using ad-hoc mode then Vinod helped me out and voila surfing web on E61i is really an awesome experience.
Update: You can also play Street Fighter on E61i you will love it
These are the only things i tested till now..will update this post if necessary.
Superb Smartphone for wanna be PC in Pocket users.
Update: Nokia E61i won the Wired Editor’s Pick Award , Nokia E61i beat out a number of other Smartphone competitors including Palm Treo 755P, BlackBerry 8830, Motorola Q9 etc.
Update for music lovers : If you really want to listen music and that too with all bells and whistles then i recommend all E61i owners to get a 3.5 mm converter for E61i, which will let you plug in your favorite earnphones, headphones into E61i.
If you are confused then purchase this Nokia Audio adapter AD-46, you can also go for local converters which are available at Rs 50-60 and pair it with creative EP 630 earphones available at around Rs 675 and get ready for some amazing music experience.
