Nokia E63 Budget BlackBerry Beater Unveiled

Looks mighty promising for businesses on a budget.

Rumours have been building around this handset for sometime so Nokia has finally decided to put us out of our misery…

The Finnish behemoth today formally announced the ‘E63’ – its latest attempt to deliver a swift titty twister to RIM’s impressive BlackBerry range. Targeting what has effectively become the smartphone ‘low end’ the E63 features an all-too-familiar candybar screen-above-qwerty layout and a couple of nice touches.

Raw specs first and you’ll get a reasonably large 2.4in QVGA 16 million colour display, WiFi, a 2MP camera with LED flash, POP3, IMAP and SMTP email support, multimedia playback and very compact 113 x 59 x 13mm dimensions and a pocket friendly weight of just 126g. Perhaps rather noticeably missing is HSDPA connectivity (you’ll have to make due with EDGE), GPS and any form of camera autofocus. Memory isn’t brilliant either at just 110MB internally though there is a microSD expansion slot.

As for those neat features, well Nokia has at last done the sensible thing and included a native 3.5mm headphone jack plus Bluetooth with A2DP and the choice of a large capacity 1500mAh battery delivers a whopping 18 / 20 ”days” of standby time or up to 11 hours of talk time from a single charge.

Also worth noting is the affordability of the E63 with the sim free price a mere 199 euros (£166) so it is likely to prove a hit with contract-a-phobics, while subsidies should see it costing zip on most tariffs when it lands in the next few weeks.

We had famously high opinions of the E71. Now it’s little brother is a virtual stripped down clone, TR expects…
