The basics

The Nokia E63 measures 113 x 59 x 13mm and weighs 126g. It's got a 320 x240 pixel display. It comes with Wi-Fi, 2 megapixel camera, 3.5mm audio headphone jack and 110MB internal memory.

The good

If this was a film, the E63 would transform at the touch of a button from a business messaging device into a hovering kill-bot. With lasers. As it’s only a phone, the E63 does transform from a corporate messager (boasting Wi-Fi, Exchange email and calendars) at the touch of a button, but only to a social networking superstar (with wallpapers, blogs and personal email). The 2MP camera shoots a mean VGA video and a standard headphone socket is as welcome as that first frothy beer after a long day in the office. Nokia is also throwing in 1GB of storage on its remote Files on Ovi service for free.

The bad

Although Qwerty keyboards on mobile phones are the worst trend in miniaturisation since the Krankies, the E63’s pad actually isn’t too awful when you get used to it. What you might not get used to is the lack of a high-speed 3G data connection – get with the millennium, Nokia!

The bottom line

Competent QWERTY convert-a-phone that should satisfy corporate drones as well as the textaholic masses. Sweet colour schemes, too.

Only gripes i have with this phone, are that it goes slow over time, the keys crack easily.
