I have a Nokia E63! [updated]

Thanks to the people at Nokia Womworld, the best surprise of the day has just arrived – a pre-production E63 (the model we caught a glance of unofficially the other week) not even in final packing!  I’ll be trying it out and reporting back.


Looking much like an E71, it has a 3G chip-set, an all-plastic housing, a 2MP camera and a 3.5mm headphones connection (at last!), but no internal GPS.  They keyboard’s slightly different too!

Certainly looks prettier in red than the black one we saw.



The headphone socket lives under that removable plastic ‘lug’, which isn’t attached so will get lost pretty quickly I think.  Regardless, if you’re not a headphones user, it’s a nice touch to keep dust out.
