    Fixed focus cam… ok.

    Pastel color-plasticky look? Lower-rated battery? No thanks. Still loving my E72.

    Nokia, you need to step up your game. Execs jumping like rats on the proverbial sinking ship. And Meego hasn’t even launched yet. Makes me kinda glad I didn’t jump for the N900.

    what happened to E73? lol

    Sorry, I’d still go for a BlackBerry in the same price category.

  4. Cessie says:

    How come there’s no E73 here yet? any news about that?

    I think this is more of an e63 upgrade than an e72 . E7x series use premium materials but have pretty much similar hardware (no front facing camera and fixed focus cam, though right?).

    And with regards to the e73, I just want to ask why? With the e7 nearing its release, I don’t know if there’s even a point in releasing an e72 rehash with probably minimal upgrades and the same old OS. (Oh yeah and I think e73 is just the e72’s version in the US, am I right?)

    I think this got released way too late in the game and with a not so attractive price point.

    Why is it in Ebuystore the Nokia E5 is only 10,900 and 14,950 posted here? is this because of the warranty thats why its more expensive?….any thoughts on this? anyone?

  7. Jazon says:

    E63 looks better. I don’t get why there has to be a gap that divides the color. Nokia has a history of releasing bad-looking phones, but before when it had market dominance it didn’t matter much. Right now I don’t think Nokia has that dominance, so it has to please buyers.

    So, I’m sticking to my E63 till they release a better-looking, yet functional, QWERTY phone. Or I might as well switch to BB.

    E73 (they call is Mode here) is for T-mobile US only. There’s some minor facelift compared to E72 but everything else are the same.

    Better specs than Blackberry Curve 8900:

    Processor: 600 mhz vs. 512 mhz
    Camera: 5mp vs. 3.15mp
    Display: 256k vs. 65k
    Radio: nokia: yes – bb: no

    I think the white E5 looks nice. A good improvement over the E63, E71, & E72 that I see is that the camera on the back looks like it’s flush or even slightly inset vs. having a protruding bulge on the others.

  11. hugo_ says:

    i think i saw this with pricing around 10-11k only..

  12. Leso says:

    Is this worth buying? What color is better? Black or white? Does this have a front camera???

  13. Josh says:

    I’d rather burn a few more pesos to get my hands on the Nokia E72.

  14. nexusboy says:

    comparing this nokia to a blackberry is an insult. there’s no way this phone can go head on with blackberry, come on, get real people. :)

  15. bing says:

    blackberry fanboys are feeling the heat. They can’t compete feature for feature and price points :)

  16. Josh says:


    The Nokia E5 doesn’t have a front camera.

  17. Maniniyot says:

    Its something that I want.

  18. jonah says:

    Ouch.! Why its too expensive now? Despite that PHP is now gettin stronger than USD.. Previous posts ard stating that it would be just around 11k tn 12k when it comes available here in the philippines. I think its another scam. Nokia phil has sumthim to do bout it! Unless their market may decrease than it supposed to be.
