I used to say that when Nokia made an N95 with a QWERTY keypad, I'd have found my upgrade. Now they've effectively done it twice over (E72 and N97), I find I'm quite happy to stay with my N95 for the time being... how fickle am I?

BTW: I assume from the pics/spec that the E72 doesn't have Carl Zeiss optics, in which case, would the 5 megapixels be worth much?

Or will it just magically work across all apps out-of-the-box? Rafe?

I don't know at the moment. However I would imagine it will just work (sort of). One flick will equal one down push in 3rd party apps (i.e. move through list items one at a time). In apps customised to take advantage one flick might move through several items on a list.

3) Processor speed? And type of processor?
4) Does this have a dedicated camera button?

I hope this finally means Nokia is not penchy pinching like in N97.

Thanks Rafe and Steve
1. Yes, this works on the E71 too, but only in select applications.
2. No RAM is 128 MB, the internal memory is the C: drive.
3. Not sure of exact details. It is ARM 11 single chip - if same as E75 then 369 Mhz (Freescale?), but could also be the 600 Mhz on as seen in the E55.
4. It appears not.

Great work as always chaps.
Yes FOTA = firmware over the air. And with UDP - i.e. wont wipe memory when updated. Make fimware updates much less painful. Sorry should have avoid acronyms at 4 am!

Will we eventually see "comes with turn-by-turn navigation" for Nokia Maps perhaps? That would certainly be plausible considering Nokia owns both the mapping company (Navteq) and the navigation software company (Gate5).
Yes. And really we already have Comes with Maps - its the 6710 Navigator - although I think that comes with just 12 months. The E72 has life time walk navigation too.

That's right... will be interesting to see quality of the camera. I would get my hopes up too high. There's a limit to what you can squeeze into the space. Should be a noticeable improvement though.

I echo other posters. I've only just discovered the delights of The E71 after buying one a couple of months ago (still have my N82, but only for weekend camera use with the family). And now this. Its only the camera that lets the phone down. A better snapper would render my N82 to the ebay files. If the 5mp imaging hardware and software produce above average results then I'm sold. It'll be my third new phone in a year. The wife is going to kill me!!

I am not so sure of that. Remember the Navi-wheel on the Nseries? It didnt work in all apps!

Still iPhone

I've got E71 now, and if I were only typing smses - I'd love it.

In other areas... well, there is a potential, but what good is an email client, if it has to be removed because GPRS/EDGE/3G packet connections stopped working? (Nokia Email is messing with connections somehow.) A-GPS ("A-" part) started working after second firmware upgrade. (And stopped in my friend's branded E71)

Web browsing is ridiculously slow, it takes dozens of seconds to render moderately sophisticated page. Page navigation is awkward and slow. Flash content mostly doesn't work.

From time to time, phone crashes during phone calls. Performance degrades as new applications are installed, even opening main menu, after 3 months of usage (after firmware update and hard reset), lags noticeably.

No GFX acceleration means also games are crappy. It sucks when you see a guy playing some smooth RTS on his iPhone during flight.

What I need is a fast, reliable phone, not cluttered with functionality that works "almost perfectly". With responsive interface and stable OS. And, at this moment, this is not any of Nokia phones.

Whatever the social media press release is, it most probably has an error, then (at least in this respect).

I have to say I'm very impressed, I love my e71 and this just improves on it in everyway. Haven't been too impressed with Nokia of late but this is definitely my new phone. Though I am still thinking about the processor, will it really still be running at 369mhz? is that enough power?

OK thanks noted. For reference Soical Media Press release is here http://private.conversations.nokia.c.../handsets/E72/ - linked of the Nokia press pages.

Thinking about it the fixed orientation would cause trouble in some games, but last night I made the assumption based on source above and E75 N-Gage support.

Could be 500 Mhz too... However as I keep saying processor speeds really do not mean all that much. The E72 will be significantly quicker than the E71 thanks to FP2 - you'll get a bigger performance boost from that than any CPU change.

Now if they'd stick the hardware of the N82/N95 inside - or OMAP3, but OMAP3 might be a lil too large for the E72's sleek profile. The OMAP2 however, should be small enough. Or it might be the other way round, which would doubtlessly excite many.

Ctrl-X, Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V already work in most editing applications I think - at least they always work when I need them.

You don't have to press 3-keys at once either: press shift, then ctrl/chr, then C

Ctrl+anything else also seems to work too: I often use Ctrl-A and Ctrl-D in putty (ssh client)

Probably not, only Windows use the CTRL C and CTRL V shortcuts. It won't work on Macs or other OSes as far as I know.
Think again. They (and other "common" Ctrl key shortcuts, like Ctrl-A) work fine on the E90, and have done for years.

I think you'll find that (give or take subsitutions for the Ctrl key itself) they work on other OSes too.

Hey why nobody is thinking of screen resolution.do you think that qvga is pardonable in end of 2009.ah nokia should have crammed up at least 320 480 resolution.but i think that s60 softwares are developed considering qvga resolution so they might not work then.anyways further comments welcome

15fps

15fps Video. What's that all about? Clearly a low end imaging device so again, i'm stuck my N82. Stuck. There's no way out I tell you.

Its a shame that the video is only 15fps. Are Nokia so afraid of putting all the good features in one phone? Does anybody know whether its got a decent mp3 playback quality (like the 5800) unlike the E71
