So what do I think? Well, honestly I have to say that the E75 improves enough on the E71 released last year that it just might be Nokia’s best, currently available E-series device.
From the application performance to the build quality, it’s really a well done mobile. I’ve put it in the hands of some staunch BlackBerry and iPhone fans and they were impressed enough to consider it… until I mentioned the price.
At $450, the E75 isn’t a cheap option. And you will not find it subsidized by a carrier in the U.S. That being said, it’s the kind of mobile device that would probably be best to not be subsidized, it feels good enough to be off the beaten path and something that you’d enjoy owning and finding different ways to use.
It’s not overly aggressive in its design, but after you hear that slider click, you notice that the E75 just isn’t your normal mobile. And maybe that’s a good thing. Because this is the kind of phone that if the word got out, it would definitely find its way into a lot of pockets.
