Welcome to the Nokia E5 review/information page. To be released in 2010 this is the E5-00 as it will also be known is a seeming replacement for the E72!  The release of the E5 is strange since the E72 was only released in late 2009 we can’t understand it but if Nokia wants to release an even better model than we won’t complain.  We haven’t got a real E5 to sample yet but since our E71 is due for replacement the E5 looks promising.  So here is what we think about the phone based on the released information.

In terms of hardware all the usual Nokia E series stuff is there.  So A-GPS, Wi-Fi, camera and video recorder, FM radio, Bluetooth 2.o, nice screen, micro-USB and professional appearance. The new feature is DLAN compatibility which means you can control or link to devices on your wireless network.  It also runs an 600Mhz CPU which is the fastest one available for a Nokia.

In terms of software all the usual E-series features but now has a more multi-media functions including a video editor and posting to the internet.  It can also play WMV files in additional to Youtube FLV standalone or within a web browser.

Overall the E5 is a small upgrade compared the E72 but I can see why.  The E71 and E72 are really popular mobile phones and once you use one you too will be hooked. The C5 will probably continue the tradition and sales too!
