Contemplating buying a Nokia E72

I currently have a Nokia E71 and am thinking about upgrading to a Nokia E72, mainly because of the new Ovi Maps being released.

Is it worth me upgrading? Are the differences between the two models enough for me to warrant shelling out the money?

In a word I'd say no.

Ovi Maps 3.3 will be released for S60FP1 handsets given time.

Other than that it has a 5mp camera over the E71 3.2mp.

When do you think that the Ovi maps will become available for the E71 then?

What about the reputed faster processor, trackpad, design, etc?

Hi wsmhustler

We have both the e71 and e72 within the household and in my opinion unless your recieving the phone for free I woudn't bother.
Yes the e72 is nicer, it feels faster opening and closing apps and the trackpad is a nice touch but the overall feel is that its the same phone with enhancements.
One bonus with the e72 is that you can use SDHC microSD cards up to 32Gb.

I have a 16gb card in my E71. I imagine it will happily accept a 32Gb card. The manafacturers Max card size supported spec is usually limited purely due to the max card size tested when the phone was released.

Its a nice phone the E72 but its very much just an upgrade of the E71 nothing major, but as a new Nokia customer I bought the newer E72 over the E71.
