Sara’s 1st day with the Nokia e-5 was pretty good. She managed to set up her business email quiet easily, and she liked the speed of the phone. It didn’t lag as much as her previous e-63. Her one complain though was the lack of serious business apps support, namely “Bloomberg anywhere”. Her company pays for the use of this service, and currently the only phones that support this app are the blackberry and iphone. If Nokia wants to be taken seriously as a business phone, it definitely needs to buck up in this area.
I also noticed the lack of support for apps such as Foursquare quite disappointing. Another thing I am a little disappointed in, is the lack of geotagging photos taken from the Nokia. I mean, it does have a gps in-built, why not just geotag the photos?
All, in all, for a phone worth RM8XX, we find it packed with good enough features, though still not as business friendly as we would like to see, especially if they want to give Blackberry a run for their money.
