If you’ve read any of our coverage of Nokia’s E63 smartphone in the past, you likely know we’re not huge fans of this handset. Dubbed “E71 lite” here at BGR, the E63 features an E71-like form with the following downgrades: Plastic instead of metal, No GPS, a 2 megapixel camera instead of a 3.2 megapixel camera, a tiny unusable spacebar and no dedicated power or volume buttons. Boo. On the flip side of the coin however, Dell is now offering a special on unlocked E63s — likely because no one is buying them — that chops the price down to $198.39 with free shipping. If you’re looking to break into the smartphone arena with a slim entry-level handset at a good price, this deal might just help you pull the trigger. Then again, you could just wait less than a month for the E71x to drop via AT&T at $99 a pop. Yeah, that’s definitely what you should do.
