Nokia's smartphones don't get much love from U.S. carriers but even so, they've still earned a reputation for being powerful and well-performing devices. The Nokia E71 is no different. Even better, Nokia revamped the design to make the E71 one incredibly sleek QWERTY device, unlike its bulky predecessor, the Nokia E61i, the E71 is an incredibly sleek QWERTY device. You do lose a bit in screen and keyboard size, but we feel it's manageable. Plus, with its strong messaging, productivity, and connectivity features and solid performance, it's worth those little sacrifices. Like the Xperia X1, the downside is that without the backing of a carrier, the smartphone is a bit expensive at $500.
