Nokia E61i

Nokia's second take on the E61 brings new features to the table, including an upgrade to a 2mpixel camera, refreshed body design with new keyboard and the replacement of that clunky old joystick with a more-user friendly d-pad.

The E61i shares most of its important features with it's older sibling, including a large full colour screen, web browsing, push email support, Wi-Fi connectivity (including VoIP support) and the now de-facto Bluetooth connectivity. Lacking from the E61i, however, is HSDPA. It would have been provident of Nokia to include support for the new, high speed 3G data standard given this handset's target audience, and to bring the device in line with the rest of the 'new' E-series handsets.

Measuring 117 x 70 x 14 mm and weighing 150g, the new Nokia doesn't break any size or weight records. However, it packs an awful lot of functionality into the space it occupies. If the lack of HSDPA doesn't irk you, this is clearly the perfect phone for today's businessman.

On the next few pages, we will take a look at the interface of the phone.
