The Nokia E66 is a business Smart phone.

It runs a ­Symbian S60 OS, is fully loaded with all the business apps you could want, has incredible email ­functionality and a commendable browser. It also boasts ­respectable connectivity specs with WiFi, 3G HSDPA, and ­A-GPS.

A bit like Harvey Dent, ­however, the E66 has two faces. It has a ‘Switch’ function for ­effortless switching between ­display modes. The ‘Switch’ function is designed to segregate your personal and professional life offering custom displays, email folders, and application shortcuts to suit your dual needs.

The handset isn’t short on the multimedia front either. It has a 3.2 megapixel camera, media player, FM radio and a 2.4\" screen with accelerometer for smooth switching between ­portrait and landscape views. The E66 is a beautifully built slim and sleek slide form ­factor. It is solid without being awkward and stylish with a smoked chrome finish and glass-like navigation buttons. It is ideal for anyone who wants a Smart phone without the bulk or bore of a PDA form factor.

The E66 is a beautifully built and it has enough RAM (128MB) to have multiple applications running in without any slow downs.
The accelerometer doesn���t work as smoothly as it should and its battery life could be better.
