ComputerWorld (dead link) reviews Nokia E70 and concludes that this unit is stylish and small but, with the gullwing keyboard, it doesn’t feel cramped to use. Even with its exceptional sharpness and resolution, the screen is a bit tiny, so you won’t want to spend your days editing documents with it. However, for the business user or stylish geek, the E70 is a winner. Add to it the VoIP and WLAN capability, and you have a device that can connect anywhere to anywhere, and that makes it a real winner.

CNet Asia (dead link) concludes with excellent editors’ rating of 8 out of 10 that There’s definitely a market for a BlackBerry-style phone without the inconvenience of the BlackBerry form factor, and the E70 fits the bill quite well. The E70 fits in a good space for those wanting Blackberry style business features but who don’t want an obvious brick making bad creases in their jacket pockets or lumps in their handbags.
