The E71 is 99.99 from Rogers on a 3year term, $399 on no term. Full retail and unlocked $569 at ncix.com. The later is less of a bad deal than you might think. There is little in the carrier platform of the phone that adds value. Rather more the opposite… Le sigh.

The E71 is expensive, and the display is on the smaller side

from Cnet

The Nokia E71 features a slim design, while still managing to have a full QWERTY keyboard. The Symbian smartphone is stocked with features, including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and U.S. 3G support. Voice, messaging, and productivity tools are also strong.

Phone was decent. The design is really good- it's sleek and it doesn't way a ton like a blackberry. However I found typing to be a real pain since the buttons are so small. The biggest thing that I didn't like was the fact that it doesn't have push emails like other smart phones. I had those mobile mail applications and every time I received or sent an email I was charged by my carrier. If your a real smart phone user I would not recommend it. Less

Best phone I ever owed.

Pro: thin, slim, easy to use, all the features a smartphone could possibly need. Con: because it is so skinny and slim, typing can sometimes be difficult. Using experience: 5 months I have had this phone for 5 months now and have had no problems with it. it is everything that anyone could possibly need. though it is pricy with a $400-$500 price tag, it is absolutly worth it and i highly recommend this phone.
