Hi guys, thanks for all the link backs and comments with regards to the E72 launch I covered. A lot of you were asking about the enhanced Navi key so over lunch I borrowed the E72 of one of the regional comms from Nokia and the product is the video you see above. I’m showing off how well the Navi key works in conjunction to the user interface. As you can see, it is very fast (who needs a touch screen anyway??). The Navi key really shines with the new multimedia menu especially when browsing through photos.
Ready for my photo barrage? It’s all after the jump.
I’ve also meticulously included more comparison shots of the E72 with my E71. Some small differences that I did not include in my previous comparison include are the (1) switching of the miniUSB and memory card slots, (2) the location of the 3.5mm head phone jack was moved to the top of the device, with the new power button prominently placed on the center. There are also (3) new shortcut keys in the QWERTY thumb pad for the flashlight (we’ve seen this in the E63), instand on Bluetooth and silent mode. A convenient and well thought of addition. Looks like the speaker was also (4) moved behind, beside the camera.
Enjoy the rest of the photos 🙂
Oh I decided to add the N97 to the photo comparison over lunch. They’re all more or less the same size!
Hope you enjoyed the photos! Will be flying back to Manila tomorrow. Tonight, we drink!
