To begin with the upgrader's point of view, we'd say a jump from E65 to the E66 is totally worth it. The phone has improved in nearly every area compared to its predecessor and addresses most of its issues. The price tag is still slightly on the steep side but we guess it will be a great bargain in no time. And even as it stands now, the Nokia E66 still is a great purchase.

Maximizing the reach with one and the same styling and feature sets used across different form factor is no news in the industry. Think Nokia 6500 classic and slide, or the Samsung Soul lineup, if you will. With Nokia E66 and E71 though, it's so easy on the user with almost complete replicas available in different design.

In general, Nokia E66 is as good for business as its QWERTY peer. It might not have the stamina and keypad of the powerful E71 but that was hardly the objective in the first place. We like the E66 for being a worthy alternative in terms of shape and looks, without compromising performance. It adds a pinch of fun to the whole thing too, coming out as more of an all-round device than strictly a business tool.

Serious business phone, with an eye towards multimedia

from MobileBurn

The Nokia E66 is a serious business phone, with an eye towards multimedia. The 3.2 megapixel camera with autofocus, built-in GPS receiver, and accelerometer are big news on this small smartphone. Nokia has put together quite a few small upgrades, such as the Contacts, Calendar, and dual-Active Standby screens that make things really convenient. However, the 2.5mm audio port and annoying camera button really wore on me through the review, and the default icons simply look too dated. Given that these are somewhat nit-picky, we at MobileBurn still give the E66 a 'Highly Recommended' rating because of all of the things it does so well....

The smoked chrome accents and glass buttons on Nokia's newest business handset make you wonder what kind of business, exactly, the Finns had in mind when they designed the thing. Maybe this is the phone the high-class-escort set has been clamoring for.

Working girls (and guys -- hey we're equal opportunity here) will certainly appreciate what we in the lab have taken to calling the "mullet button" (actual name: switch mode). This feature of the S60 refresh (3rd Edition, Feature Pack 1) allows your mobile to toggle between two separate screen modes. Keep the first one full of all your spreadsheets, work e-mail, TPS reports and other boring business stuff. When you leave the office, let your hair down a little and switch to the personal mode and start using all the applications that hamper productivity or just may be not safe for work. Unless, of course, you're a high-class escort, then your entire profession is predicated on being NSFW.

I have the Nokia E66-1 (Asian version, English language), and I simply find it to be very well designed, with a distinctly elegant and professional taste to it! I've also added an 8GB memory card to carry my music with me. The Nokia PC Suite is very easy to use with a cleanly designed interface. Pros: 1. Email client is smart; configures Gmail/Yahoo Mail very easily. 2. WiFi remembers your connections and prioritizes your nearest access point. 3. Thin, slim, and lots of shiny metal. And easy to carry around! 4. Buttons are well thought out and not too small. 5. Music player sounds great, except for the background hiss*. 6. Battery life is fair at 3 days of moderate use. 7. Dust does NOT get under the screen. 8. Very nice guitar chords playing the Nokia Tune ringtone! Cons: 1. Music player has background hiss, which you can suppress with a headphone with volume control. Increase the phone's volume, then limit it with the headphone. Actually, you only notice the hiss when listening to quiet music in a quiet room. Also, headphone jack is 2.5mm, which limits your choice of headphones. 2. Email client doesn't display html; you have to open content as an attachment. 3. Calendar could be more flexible, especially with irregularly recurring appointments. 4. Camera performs poorly in low light (colour banding and blotchy). 5. SMS conversations aren't threaded. Less
