Conclusion: We really like the E6; it’s well built, looks fantastic - especially the new U, a good camera, free Ovi maps and high-res screen. While Anna is the best version of Symbian yet - and works better here on a Touch and Type handset than the full QWERTY Nokia X7, it’s still not as intuitive as rivals and the screen is still a touch on the small size.
Excerpt: Nokia’s E71 and E72 have been big landmarks for the Finish mobile giant as they helped cement the company’s stand in the business phone segment and gave rivals like BlackBerry a run for their money. While the E72 still remains a good buy, Nokia have had to move on with the changing trends in the mobile space and with everyone adopting touch screen, that was the next logical step.

Summary: In the preceding Nokia E6 review parts, Rafe has gone into extensive detail about the E6's hardware design , its software bundle and its enterprise credentials . He has alluded to the need for a modern enterprise device to also appeal to consumers - or at least to appeal to the business user who also wants a degree of media and entertainment along with his or her push email.
Excerpt: Does size really matter? The Nokia E6 is an ultra small business mobility smartphone that brings the Nokia E-series of phones into the next generation. See what this smartphone, with the OS nick-named Symbian Anna, has to offer.
Conclusion: For RM1,155 there's a lot of value to be found in the small but feature-packed Nokia E6. It is a well-built phone that offers a decent Âcamera and great battery life. Nokia Maps also extends the phone's usefulness beyond calls and text messaging. Though it may seem weird, the phone's hybrid physical button and touch interface works well for surfing the Web and general phone usage.
Pros: Improved web browser; good Âbattery life; able to record 720p HD video, Nokia Maps provides GPS navigation.
Cons: Screen is too small; Symbian Anna does not offer many new features; fixed-focus camera.

It comes with an 8 mega pixel camera that is equipped with dual LED flash and auto focus. The resolution of the clicked images is 3264 x 2448 pixels and it can record videos as well.

Excerpt: A-GPS, HSDPA, an eight-megapixel snapper with all the extras, Wi-Fi, plus there are pre-loaded widgets such as Ovi Social for anyone who likes using Facebook and Twitter We love the look and style of the E6 – even its glossy white coating. The E6 is not too broad, even though it boasts a QWERTY keyboard Battery life is really good – expect to get 450 minutes talktime on a 3G network as well as 744 hours when on standby Surfing the web was speedy but let down by the small...
