Nokia E5 - The cheap smartphone?

Hi guys,

Happy Tuesday to you all. Well, I don't quite like to start posting on a Monday bcoz there's helluva things to do in the office. So, I just concentrate & focus on the office stuff on Monday so that Tuesday would tune down a bit.

Alright, I am considering a new phone. I have few in mind. BB Bold, Nokia E72 and Nokia E5. I just recently thought of E5. It's because it's a new model from Nokia, affordable (yeah..RM830 for a smartphone?!) and there are few people in the office already having BB & Nokia E72. Killjoy!!

So I kinda browse the net to check the review before a firm decision. Just wanna share with you guys and I think so far in terms of pricing for smartphones, this is a sure winner - below RM1k! WooooWww.. Nokia did a good job for marking that price for our market.

Have a read and give me a thought also. Thanks to for such a good review on E5.


Nokia E5 is very affordable smartphone that meet both your business and personal needs. The Nokia E5 price retail at RM 830 comes with best smartphone features like Qwerty keypad, with A-GPS that support the Ovi Maps , 2.4in QVGA LCD screen, up to 250MB of internal memory and microSD memory card slot. Furthermore a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash, also connected via WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity. Amazingly the Nokia E5 can endure up to 29 days battery life while in standby time while the talktime is up to 12 h 10 min (2G) / Up to 5 h 30 min (3G) using a standard battery, Li-Ion 1200 mAh (BL-4D).


The E5 is the first smartphone to come preloaded with Microsoft Communicator Mobile, an application jointly developed by Microsoft and Nokia. Communicator Mobile monitors the availability of a person on a company directory and allows you to reach them via instant messaging.

The Symbian-based smartphone using OS Symbian OS v9.3, Series 60 rel. 3.2 with CPU ARM 11 600 MHz processor also supports instant messaging services such as Yahoo!

Mail, Gmail, Windows Live Hotmail, Ovi Mail, MS Exchange and IBM Lotus Notes Traveler. Also, the phone includes applications for accessing Facebook and Twitter social networking sites. Plus, you can view Facebook updates within the contact list (Phonebook) itself.

As for the Nokia E5 specs, The 126 g E5 has a QWERTY keyboard along with 320 x 240 pixels, 2.36 inches display is just right to your hand with 115 x 58.9 x 12.8 mm, 75 cc in dimensions . Build in 250 MB storage with card slot microSD, up to 32GB, 2GB included. Nevertheless, it integrated with Primary 5 MP camera with 2592 x 1944 pixels, fixed-focus and LED flash but the sad thing is there is no secondary camera in front for 3G videocall.

Music play Up to 38 h via 3.5 mm audio jack support MP4, WMV player and MP3. It also integrated with Flash Lite v3.0, Voice command/dial and Organizer.
