The Nokia E7 has landed making it the most high-end QWERTY messenger in the Nokia portfolio. It’s perfect for business as well as those who just like to have greater control over what they’re typing on Facebook or on email.
Nokia E5 QWERTY smartphone
The Nokia E5 is a great looking QWERTY messenger that builds on the success of the Nokia E72 but with a more consumer focussed look and feel. The Symbian S60 3rd Edition OS means it’s rock-solid assured to work everytime and while it has a non-touch screen, the QWERTY keyboard means messaging is a dream.
The standard shape of the Nokia E5 means the keyboard is always there and compared to that of the Nokia E7 isn’t as spacious, so you’ll find some of the keys doubling up the secondary functions. The rounded rubber keys have a great feel to them and we’ve always been impressed with how easy it is to type on the Nokia E5 but there is a definite knack to developing fast-texting thumbs!

The 4-inch screen is usable in all conditions and locations, whether indoors or out, while the slide-out keyboard means you don’t have to fiddle about with cramped keys.
