Nokia E60 Review: Music Player, Connectivity, Browser

It's just not what it's made for

Nokia E60 offers a music player with support of the most common music formats but that's not what it is created for. The player has a built-in equalizer with some presets. It produces fine sound, clear and loud enough but Nokia E60 is a business phone first of all and not much of its users will be interested in listening to music anyway. Music can be played in background, of course, and the song will be displayed on the active stand-by display below the calendar events. Nokia E60 also has a Flash player and a Real Player and thus it can play videos, too. The remarkable display allows very fine performance on this subject.

You can connect to anything

The phone supports GPRS, EDGE, Wi-Fi, UMTS, PTT, Bluetooth, IrDa and USB. Nokia E60 works with Bluetooth Specification 1.2 supporting the following profiles: Basic Printing Profile, Generic Access Profile, Serial Port Profile, Dial-up Networking Profile, Headset Profile, Handsfree Profile, Generic Object Exchange Profile, Object Push Profile, File Transfer Profile, Basic Imaging Profile, SIM Access profile, and Human Interface Device Profile. Unfortunately, the A2DP profile is not among them which create impossible the utilize of stereo Bluetooth headset with the phone.

The phone offers a Printer connection application which can be very useful if you intdiscontinue to utilize a printer more frequently. The phone makes a connection with the printer via Wi-Fi, Universal Serial Bus (USB) or Bluetooth, it's you choice. The Universal Serial Bus (USB) connection can be made only with a custom Universal Serial Bus (USB) data cable as Nokia E60 doesn't have a normal Universal Serial Bus (USB) port.

The quick data transfer can be used via GPRS, EDGE or 3G UMTS. You can also try the Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) connectivity, in which case you have to be near a Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) hotspot. You can set the phone to detect and connect automatically to such hotspots or you can search them manually. When you are connected, E60 automatically creates an access point for the hotspot and starts using its Internet broadband. The connection speed depends on the distance from the hotspot and on the provider. The signal is displayed as the network signal strength.

When needs meet quality

There are two web browsers in Nokia E60, a remarkable one and a poor one. The poor one is mostly used for connecting to services web pages and for downloading ringtones and games. The real web browser is the same as in Nokia N80. It is one of the best, if not the best. It can open web pages just like you're browsing them on you PC. The remarkable display makes this browsing even better. The Rotate feature is very useful for viewing web pages. You can see more and better when you utilize the phone in landscape mode.

Web browser

There is even a moutilize cursor which can be operated through the navigation joystick. Surprisingly, it works remarkable and is very easy to control. A semi-transparent mini-map of the page displays on the classy screen when scrolling a webpage. The mini-map can also be accessed by a shortslit - the "8" key. You can zoom in and out on the page using the "*" and "#" buttons. It's fantastic to see how small the text can be and still remain readable. In fact, this browser fits more information in a single classy screen than the IE browser on the Video Graphics Array (VGA) display of Qtek 9000!


Most of the sites we visited (including, hold a see at the screenshots) looked exactly like on the PC. Even when loading complex pages, the web browser was operating quick and there was no slowdown in the scrolling speed. The browser also loads Flash clips (not all of them, pitifully) and has no problems dealing with Java Scripts.
