Many are out there desperately waiting for Nokia E5, a cheaper version of Nokia E72 likes, but something arrived before the same and sure has many reasons to bring good news to Nokia Lovers. Nokia E73; though launched within contract of T-Mobile US for regional customers only, but there are many reasons to believe that soon it could hit the worldwide stores as well. Ohhh!!! I have already fallen in love with E-Series devices and here comes more joining the legacy.
Yes!! its expected to be of a lower price band and thanks God, as much info, I got till now, Nokia doesn’t seem to compromise over battery with this one and its coming with the same almighty BP-4L 1500 mAh battery that now days I am not feeling like living with in any of next device (though I’ve been disappointed that all of the next devices are coming with BL-4D 1200 mAh). This ends the fear that Nokia will stop shipping devices with BP-4L batteries at all
Sure, everyone expect the new device to be one bit higher, even notion of E ’73’ tells us that it has few things higher than the earlier one Nokia E72, but what… expect minors only … lets see.
As you can see, there are changes in appearance and as I pointed out with Nokia E52,
- Support for more 3G bands – includes support for T-Mobile’s 1700/2100MHz 3G network
- We got the colored button for Call and End Call, which sure should be called a welcome step.
We lost the uniquely texured body and in place of silver, seems to got Chrome unless some other colored version also surfaces.
All the keys are inherited from E72 through still I feel E72 was better spaced. Minor margin, but I felt so.
As AAS pointed out, larger metallic bottom lip – the E73 has a thinner plastic strip below the keyboard and, consequently, a larger metallic bottom lip.
Its being said to be adding voice call support over Wi-Fi. Though in India, we can’t exactly get what that means, but its related to some service from T-Mobile that this contracted device gonna use.
More of the differences will come from here and there once the total specs come out and device hit the stores, but it seems to be just a slightly modified version of Nokia E72, either it be hardware or software. Yes!! you will get Digital Compass, Optical Track pad, same 5MP Camera, same Free Navigation, same QuickOffice full version etc…
No words, if this device will ever come to India, but if they get price right (15k or less), then India will welcome the same otherwise, we are happy with Nokia E72 only (just someone please bring white version of Nokia E72 here).

Nice review dude.
E73 looks solid but i will still stick to my E72.
But this E72 WHITE has killer looks man.
Are you going to lay your hands on N8 any soon.
I loved White Nokia E72 too, but don’t know why Nokia wish to keep Indian Customers waiting. That’s not a big thing to launch it world wide, they need not to ship extra accessories.
And yes I am sure looking to get my hands on Nokia N8 in few months. Hope it will be in my hands before it hits the stores. 😉
I really don’t see what is the need for the E73. It’s exactly similar to E72 except some cosmetic changes. Changes like more 3G bands are very very minor and insignificant.
Its true that changes are more of cosmetic nature only and still the old looks are good enough than this E73. That’s why I mentioned that it will be good if they offer a price of 15k here.
Moreover inclusion of colors over CALL and END CALL buttons are a welcome step as that was confusing in E72 and E52 (not sure how it is in E71)
Could you plz. tell me what is the lounching date of Nokia E73 in India.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to be likely. Its a version for specific area only, but sure, you wont miss that when September will see Nokia E5
The N73 is also a great music device. It has a conventional boxy design with a regular keypad very similar to the N70. Its camera quality is very nice. Battery life is very good for a 3G phone. The display is very large. It is a great buy.
Many thanks for all your help over here. I am in a confusion to buy whether E72 or E73. Can you pls let me know which one is better comparatively both technology and price wise.
Price is not an issue, which one shall I choose E72/E73?
E73 not available for India. I think I mentioned it
