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: 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.
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
Conclusion: The Nokia E63 mobile phone is one hot piece of equipment it really does cater for business users but also allows them to incorporate their personal life as when and when it suits. The E63 mobile phone is not only absolutely jam packed with technologies and features but it looks stylish and sophisticated also. We believe this mobile phone will go down a storm with the business minded as it really has everything rolled into the one handset allowing for work and play.
Summary: If you're choosing between the E71 and E63 we don't envy you. The differences in hardware (no HSDPA or GPS) are made up for in its cheaper price tag. The E63 will make an excellent messaging phone for people who need to be connected without the trimmings.
Pros: Cute design, Great keyboard, Zippy performance, Outstanding battery life
