To add more prizes to its already amazing resumé, the Nokia E71 a.k.a. “smart simplicity”, was rewarded with the ‘Test Best Cell Phone’ award by WIRED magazine, adding up to the “Phone of the Year” and “Best Smartphone of the Year” given by Mobile Choice UK.

This sleek device intended for the business user, has connectivity-oriented features such as: Wi-Fi, 3G, Bluetooth, and an Infrared port. It comes with numerous applications  pre-installed such as Quickoffice v.4.5, barcode scanner, web browser, and PDF reader among others.

As an E71 owner, I feel proud that after about a month of considering different options for a new phone, I chose this one. These awards speak for themselves, this device is fantastic, I have been using it for about a month and it is the best phone I’ve ever had. Especially after installing applications such as Gmail, Google Maps, Opera Mini, Mobbler and many more, which have made it more useful for my daily activities. If you are interested in acquiring this phone, you should read Chris’ review for a broader perspective on the E71.

Nokia is a Finnish company which has been in the telecommunications sector for many years. They introduced E-series devices on October 2005 with the E60, E61 and E70. Nokia has been improving these high-end devices ever since. These smartphones have exquisite designs and various communication options intended for the business consumer. This has been a great step in the right direction for Nokia, which can be confirmed with Chris’ verdict giving this phone 9.5 out of 10.

The Nokia E71 scored nine out of 10, with WIRED’s editors commenting

The E71 is stocked with enough apps and goodies to keep even the most overworked road warrior on the ball, but it didn’t feel too “business.” That’s mostly due to the fact that the E71 has two separate customizable home screens. One is designed to house all of your work apps like Excel andPowerPoint while the other is geared more towards entertainment with programs for audio, video and gaming. Switching between the two is dead simple, a dedicated button at the top of the menu lets you toggle between the two screens instantly.

The Nokia E71 is the ultimate in design and feature set – packing a variety of multimedia capabilities into the slimmest QWERTY smartphone on the market.  With support for corporate as well as personal email, two customizeable home screens, high speed data connectivity via 3G, HSDPA and WLAN networks, a 3.2 megapixel camera, A-GPS and Nokia Maps for navigation, a full HTML web browser with Flash support, and a digital audio and video player, the Nokia E71 is the only device you’ll need to carry whether at work or at play.
