Pre-order your E6 at Nokia Direct

Pre-order your E6 at Nokia DirectWe haven’t heard much about the Nokia E6 since it was unveiled alongside the Nokia X7 and Symbian Anna last month. However Nokia Direct has now added prices to its pre-order pages. Sweet.

There are two contract options listed for the Nokia E6, both over 24 months with the handset free. You can go with Vodafone, paying £25PM for 500 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB internet; or, the T-Mobile option gives 600 minutes, 500 texts and unlimited internet for £25.53PM.

There are also three PAYG offers (on Orange, Vodafone and T-Mobile) with the Nokia E6 costing £339 on each. The SIM free Nokia E6 costs £349.

The Nokia E6 has a QWERTY keyboard sitting below its 2.46in display, with a 640x480 resolution yielding an eye-popping 326ppi. The camera is 8MP and there’s 8GB of on-board storage. Oh, and don’t forget the sultry temptress that is Symbian Anna.

Nokia rekons the E6 is “aimed at business people”, but we don’t see why they should have all the fun.

You can grab the Nokia E6 in black, silver or white, and Nokia says it’ll arrive at the “end of June”.

It will be mine... oh yes, it will be mine. <3

I am so tempted. But the last couple of weeks I had a few moments when autofocus/close-up would have saved me some trouble... The E6's EDoF won't do... still, great phone, methinks. And the price really isn't bad.

Yeah it seems Nokia have to be different from everyone else... even if it means costing them their market share!

Mixed reviews on this one, Im impressed by the 8MP camera but Im still not sure on the software or keypad plus I think the prices are too high at the moment Looks a well built phone but what happens when ovi gets changed?

JanSt / MOD  May. 28, 2011 at 07:43

the Ovi 'change' is just a change in name. Nothing will change in terms of use. Actually, Nokia just did a major update to the store. You'll now get notified of updates, and search algorithms have been optimised.
As to the reviews - it's Symbian, so obviously, the hipsters are gonna nag under the veil of 'fair and unbiased'.
The camera, afaik, is the same as in my C7 - it's good, but sadly pointless for any object closer than 3ft. That is my only grips. A business/work E-series phone without close-up cam!??? Loadsa of folks use their phone to snap copies of receipts, order dockets, product details etc etc... Quite a fail on Nokia's part.
But if that isn't a problem for you, this is a great communicator.
And what's wrong with the price? It's cheaper than the Blackberry Bold 9780, and it rules in every aspect. Top materials, great connectivity, better included software, More apps, etc etc...

This is really frustrating, it seems that the search for 'my' ultimate phone is still on. :( If only I could get the E71 (or E6 even) with android 2.3 I’d be done for life... well for a (longer than usual) while.

I just hope HTC with their arsenal of phones in multiple form-factors release a high end QWERTY phone that makes the laughable ChaCha look like a Fisher Price baby’s first mobile... and no HTC, a dedicated FB button is not forgivable! :p

JanSt / MOD  May. 28, 2011 at 10:45

so agree.
I nearly ordered an E71 yesterday on offer at expansys LOL
And the ChaCha??? I don't mind ugly, but why not make a proper one?
There are so many budget and midrange qwertys for the net (not-)working nutters (oops). The ChaCha is hardly better than Acer's failed beTouch... grr

Yeah the Acer Betouch and Samsung Galaxy Pro both got me suddenly excited and then shortly after disappointed, both for the same reasons.

Why release an aesthetically pleasing phone then leave out something crucial like screen quality/resolution or auto-focusing camera? oO

Stephen Litchfield has a good article up about 'valid and invalid criticism of the Nokia E7' - the part about the camera is interesting. He reckons EDoF can still be used for close ups...'sort of'...

shuwaz  May. 31, 2011 at 16:54

Hmm... despite what he says, its still clear (like auto-focus clear :p) that EDoF is in second place. 8)

JanSt / MOD  May. 31, 2011 at 17:55

True. And I tried to replicate what he did - you need perfect lighting and a very steady hand, and the print can not be too small...
