Nokia E66 smartphone

Better connected than a Kolkata call centre

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Review The next-gen version of the E65 slider is longer, but slimmer, and packs in a 3.2 megapixel camera, push email, HSDPA, AGPS, more memory and better battery life – all in a good-looking package.

It’s slimmer by a couple of millimetres, though it's also longer by the same amount and slightly heavier. But it's that slimness that you notice as it glides effortlessly into your pocket.

E66: glides effortlessly into your pocket

It's really a very well constructed piece of kit and feels solid and sturdy without being brick-like – sort of like a heavyweight boxer in a well tailored suit, the muscles are hidden, but you know they're there.

The top of the slide is mirrored chrome-effect metal while much of the rest of it is a textured plastic and it has a gently ribbed metal back that feels very classy. In fact, everything about the casing screams quality.

The large-ish 2.4in QVGA screen (larger than the E65's) boasts 16 million colours and whether or not it's possible to actually see all of them, it's a beautifully sharp and crisp display that can be seen even in bright sunlight. Usefully, there's a light sensor present which will adjust the screen's brightness depending on how much you need, so saving your battery life.
