The Nokia E5 doesn't come with the pizzazz of an Android or iOS device, but will get the job done for calls, text messages and e-mail.

The Nokia E5 is a candy bar-style smartphone with a full QWERTY keyboard and a 256,000-color display. It runs on Symbian Series 60, Third Edition, and includes support for Java and Nokia's Ovi Suite. Features include messaging and e-mail, a personal organizer, a digital music player, stereo Bluetooth, a 3.5mm headset jack, a MicroSD card slot (for cards up to 32GB), and PC syncing through a USB cable. The tri-band (GSM 850/900/1900) handset supports the 2100 3G band and comes in either carbon black or chalk white.
