Conclusion: For all the handy business tools, the Nokia E63 doesn’t look or feel like a business phone. We can’t help but feel that it’s got too much going on with menus and shortcuts that aren’t clear or intuitive enough. It leaves us with an overwhelming impression of a handset in identity crisis. The Nokia E63 does have a lot going for it, and for someone who’s prepared to put the groundwork into learning its specific ways, it could be become an invaluable tool.
Conclusion: The maddening combination of being unable to turn off the Wi-Fi to Web surf, and blind keyboard unlock sequence caused us to start hating the E63. That’s a shame, because while it’s not an iPhone or Blackberry, the E63 performs all the other smartphone functions well enough to fulfill those with less exacting needs.
