Nokia E66 smartphone

Better connected than a Kolkata call centre

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

The 3.2 megapixel camera is a definite step up from the 2 megapixel, flashless offering on the E65 and unlike Nokia's other new business phone, the E71, it has a dedicated shutter button on the side. It will support resolution up to 2048 x 1536 and includes an enhanced zoom that will keep going up to 4x even at maximum resolution.

There's no N-series-style Carl Zeiss lens, but it has autofocus and red eye reduction, though the LED photo light isn't as good as a proper flash, and you'll need to get pretty close to your subject to make it worth your while. In good light, pics were no better or worse than you'd expect, though the colour balance isn't great and noise creeps in very quickly if the light is less than perfect.

Video doesn't even reach that standard, offering 320 x 240 (VGA) resolution at 15 frames a second but in good light, if movement isn't too fast, it's passable. There's also a VGA camera on the front for video calling.

The Symbian music player is competent if not particularly spectacular. It will play MP3, AAC and AMR formats and there's also a RealPlayer on board for music and video. There's an FM radio too with 50 presets, which should be more than enough. You'll need the supplied headphones to act as an aerial but you can also set it to loudspeaker mode when they're plugged in.

The speaker is quite good – tinny, obviously, but very clear with speech and clearer than most with music. The 2.5mm jack is a disappointment though, since you won't be able to upgrade your headphones without an adaptor (not supplied).
