More Nokia smartphones: E63 and 5800 XpressMusic

Here is a review of E63 at Brighthand. This one goes for $149.99 after $50 mail-in rebate at Amazon. I saw lots of Ads for a more high end version E71 at WSJ recently. The main difference is the latter has better camera (3M vs. 2M), has GPS and made from metal (vs. plastic for E63).

Also the touch screen Nokia 5800 XpressMusic goes very well at Amazon ($289.99 after $50 mail-in rebate). I saw this one sells under 2,000 Yuan (one USD = 6.85 Chinese Yuan) in China (amazon.cn) now. Review from phonescoop (via YouTube).

The quick declining price reminds me of one Chinese saying “selling cell phone is like selling cabbage” (in the old days cabbage was very cheap). Guess that’s one reason everyone is selling stuff (music, software etc.) from App store.
