Straight Talk brings us 2 new smartphones that are both attractive and very functional. The Straight Talk Nokia E71 and Straight Talk 6790. While both are existing models, this is the first time Straight Talk brings full smartphone functionality to its prepaid line up. We can now enjoy saving money without sacrificing form and function!
For those of you who’ve been looking at Straight Talk but couldn’t bare the thought of carrying around one of their “dumb” phones, fear no longer because you won’t be embarrassed to carry either of these. Both have similar functionality but very different looks. Compare the E71 and 6790 Surge
If you rather show off your business side, consider the Straight Talk Nokia E71. Very sleek and very professional! This phone is equivalent to the Blackberry bold in both form and function. Honestly, the E71 is actually more attractive and the Symbian OS makes for a very functional and user friendly phone.
If you prefer to let your hair down and want a more casual look, consider the Straight Talk Nokia 6790. This one features a sliding QWERTY keyboard making for a very compact form factor while maintaining Qwerty functionality. Like the E71, the 6790 comes with the Symbian OS so it’s a very user friendly phone.
If features is what you mostly care about both phones are capable of accessing your internet email accounts from providers like Gmail, Yahoo, Aol, etc. Work email can also be accessed so long as your company has an external email site like Outlook Web Access and has ActiveSync enabled. Both phones are also capable of accessing the Nokia Ovi app site for getting apps and games to expand your phone’s capabilities. In addition, both phones feature full browsers for easy internet access, mp3 players, digital cameras and more.
In conclusion, these two Nokia phones finally make Straight Talk a viable choice for cell phone users who demand more than a typical “dumb” phone. Either phone is worthy of the “smartphone” label and either is worth looking at. Moreover, the Straight Talk $45 unlimited voice/text/data is less than half the price of most contract plans. Who needs to pay 90 bones when you can pay 45 for the same?
