Even if the E75 has nothing groundbreaking to offer it still can't be ignored as a viable Eseries option.

The E75 should be a handy and simple messaging device, but a couple of design flaws made it far too difficult for me to use. People already familiar with, and fond of, Symbian devices will have less trouble overcoming this phone's shortcomings. A nice camera, media player, and OVI Store access take...

Nokia E75 is the usual Eseries skill with a different approach to QWERTY and compact design

Adding value to an already impressive fleet of business handsets is by no means an easy task. And since there's no doubt that the E75 is up to the E-series standard - there's nothing too big to complain about. Though, well, there's nothing too big altogether.

Adding value to an already impressive fleet of business handsets is by no means an easy task. And since there's no doubt that the E75 is up to the E-series standard - there's nothing too big to complain about. Though, well, there's nothing too big altogether.

The side-slide QWERTY form factor is a Symbian debut and the fact that it packs in a pleasantly compact and nice handling piece of gear is only in favor of the E75. Its only problem is it's launched after the stunning E71 and thus risks being burdened with the wrong expectations.

The E75 should be a handy and simple messaging device, but a couple of design flaws made it far too difficult for me to use. People already familiar with, and fond of, Symbian devices will have less trouble overcoming this phone's shortcomings. A nice camera, media player, and OVI Store access take the edge off of my qualms with the device. But there are a few flaws that I can't overlook.
In the E75, Nokia took a functional and proven form-factor for a messaging device and made a few small mistakes that cancelled out the practical design. If you like Symbian S60 and grid-style QWERTYs this just might be the device for you. But are you willing to spend close to five bills on that gamble? You can get more phone for your money.

You can pick up the E75 from free on a £35-per-month contract on several networks, or for £330 with a pay-as-you-go deal on O2.

Solidly built smartphone with two different, yet convenient text input options

from MobileBurn

The Nokia E75 is a solidly built smartphone with two different, yet convenient text input options. Both the numeric and QWERTY keyboards offer a nice tactile click, and an updated predictive text engine is handy, too. The new built-in email client is miles ahead of previous versions, and makes setting up your email a snap. This is also the first Enterprise-focused smartphone from Nokia to feature a plethora of multimedia options, including a standard 3.5mm audio port, N-Gage gaming support, and a camera button that actually launches the camera application. The camera takes exceptional photos, though it is a bit slow. With solid battery life and a stable operating system, we at MobileBurn.com give the Nokia E75 a "Highly Recommended" rating....

One of the most wanted business phones available on the market

from Softpedia

Nokia E75 looks and behaves above average, thus it's supposed to stand out from the crowd. It offers the sturdiness and the security a businessman needs, thanks to the partial stainless steel casing, and the features needed to be reckoned as a true messaging device. Add to this one of the best QWERTY keyboards on the market and you have one of the best Eseries smartphones available.

The Good

As a business phone, Nokia E75 offers a full Email service, as well as powerful connectivity options (HSDPA, Wi-Fi). The QWERTY keyboard and the features included raise its desirability among businessmen on the go. I would recommend this phone in an instance for its strong points: HSDPA, the QWERTY keyboard, Email and the user interface....

The Bad

Even though it's a swiss-knife in terms of messaging, Nokia E75 has its drawbacks. I wouldn't recommend the phone because of the crowded numerical keypad, small display, high price and cheap plastic on the front that makes it a fingerprint and grease magnet.
