More impressions of the Nokia E75

Readers here know the Nokia E71 is my favorite S60 device, even with the lame camera. There were a couple new Eseries devices announced back in February, the Nokia E55 and E75 and I personally still have not seen them in person. That will change next week when I go to CTIA so keep your eye here starting next Tuesday night. In the meantime, check out what Steve O’Hear has to say about the E75 after spending some time with it.

Both of these devices actually interest me for a few reasons, including fantastic quality hardware (common in Eseries), reasonable price, and S60 OS power and customizability. I am not sure yet about the E75 because I am not sure if I like this form factor over a front mounted QWERTY. This is actually the same concern that Steve mentioned so I was very interested in checking out all his thoughts.

The E55 with the SureType-like keyboard seems to be a more compact E71 and should be a great single hand device. I have been recommending this type of keyboard in a Nseries so maybe we can get one with a heavy media focus too.

NE, what would be your ideal form factor? If I gave up the front mounted keyboard, I’d want a large screen like the N97. But, hooked on E-series, I wouldn’t give up the front D-pad and E-series “Home, Contacts, Messaging and Calendar” cluster.

I have been using Nokia e-75 for a while now; however I find that the speed of the processor is pretty slower as compared to my old cell. Can it be upgraded to fix my issue; else I might have to dump this.
