Summary: The Nokia E63 offers a more wallet-friendly price tag compared with other unlocked smartphones and does so without sacrificing too many features; we just we wish the call quality and camera were better.
Pros: The sleek Nokia E63 offers a full QWERTY keyboard and full e-mail capabilities. The Symbian smartphone has integrated Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and 3G support. It's also one of the more affordably priced unlocked phones.
Cons: The smartphone lacks integrated GPS, and call quality could be better. The camera doesn't produce the best pictures, and there's no side-mounted volume rocker.
Excerpt: The Nokia E63 is another smartphone from the Nokia E-Series line of successful business phones. Does it live up to the high standards set by the other Nokia E-Series smartphones? Keep reading to find out.
Conclusion: In difficult economic times, Nokia comes to the rescue with a well-made, stylish and feature-rich smartphone at a bargain price. If you're in the market for an unlocked QWERTY smartphone or simply don't want to extend your current cell phone contract (for AT&T and T-Mobile users) and you don't have a lot of money to spend, the Nokia E63 NAM should be on your short list.

Summary: The Nokia E63 may not be aimed at the traditional All About Symbian readership, but that's not to say that there's not lots that's interesting about it - starting with the price, it has to be said, but with functional and technical points as well...
Conclusion: To tell you the truth we were a bit prejudiced about the E63, since it is basically a simplified version of the E71 . Still, targeted at the social crowd, doesn’t disappoint us and although the plastic body its quality is quite high. The only functional change is the lack of a GPS for navigation, and the worse camera is completely acceptable, since that of the E71 isn’t really any better.
Pros: A Good keyboard in a compact body, A 3.5mm jack, Nicely built
Cons: The functional buttons are small, Poor camera
An affordable business smartphone based on the popular Nokia E71.

Summary: The Nokia E63 is a cut-price version of the E71. It lacks HSDPA-connectivity and built-in GPS but retains much of the Nokia E71's design, including a full QWERTY keyboard. If you're on a budget and can live without super-fast mobile Internet speeds then it is definitely worth a look.
Pros: Excellent design and keyboard, switch mode feature, Wi-Fi, user interface, price
Cons: Lack of HSDPA-connectivity, no GPS, space bar has been shrunk, downgraded camera
Excerpt: Nokia's E63 is very similar to our Best Buy award-winning E71. It's available SIM-free, and Expansys is offering bundles that include a free phone, GPS Bluetooth receiver and T-Mobile SIM for £30 per month on a 12-month contract. To call it a slimmed-down version of the E71 would be misleading, as it's 3mm thicker; however, some of the E71's features are missing or reduced in functionality on the E63.
