Nokia has recently launched a new Eseries to replace the E63 that caters to the mass market.
Overview of Nokia E5: Connect seamlessly to the people in your professional and personal lives through instant messaging, email and your favourite online social networks.
I just got it yesterday and before I start using/reviewing it, here are some photos and video of the unboxing.
I realised that the packaging is quite compact and is made of recyclable material. Eco friendly. Nice.
The package comes with manuals, earphones, battery, USB adapter/charger, OVI booklet and the Nokia E5 itself… pretty standard.
The E5 has 5 colour variations; Carbon Black, Chalk White, Copper Brown, Silver Grey, Sky Blue.. this one I have here is the Chalk White version.
It has a 5 megapixel camera with zoom up to 3x (digital) & an LED flash. One of the drawbacks is that there is no autofocus.
Thickness compared to an X6. The E5 screen is 2.36″ with a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels (QVGA) & supports up to 256,000 colours.
Some notable features of the E5:
– Get work emails in real time through Mail for Exchange and IBM® Lotus Notes® Traveler.
– Keep chatting while on the go. All your favorite IM communities—Windows Live Messenger,™ Yahoo!® Messenger, Google Talk™ and Ovi Chat
– Stay close to your friends on Facebook – view their status and send a message directly from your contact list.
– View and edit Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents using the Quickoffice application.
OK More features and reviews will be up soon.
The Nokia E5 is now available at all stores for only RM830. Very very affordable for a device with such features.
