Summary: This is my 4th smartphone in the lat 2 yeas. From ordinary phones, I graduated to smartphone on 1/1/2008. I bought an HTC WM and it served me reasonably well. After using it for 6 months I bought another HTC WM which I lost in the train. I bought another HTC phone (TYTN II) smart phone 6 months back for its qwerty keyboard. A week back I got my E71. Having tried Windows mobile on threee different phones, it would take a good deal of convincing move me back to Windows Mobile/HTC phones.
When I started using the E71, the initial thought that came to my mind was "Wow, why did I not buy Nokia smartphome right at the start?". I regret having bought 3 HTC phones when all that I was supposd to do was try out a Nokia smartphone.
Now I can say that I have found the phone most appropriate phone for my business use. The 3.2 camera is grand compared to the HTC camera even though it also boasted of 3.2 MP.
The phone connectivity is extremely good compared to my earlier WM.
The only place if is inferior to the WM is in the e-mail interface. Since I am too much used to the MS outlook interface, the Nokia e-mail interface looks a bit tardy, but I am getting used to it.
If you want a good business phone, then you should give the E71 a chance.
