Nostalgia Video: Unboxing the sleek Nokia E66

Nokia E66

The Nokia E66 was released back in 2008, right before the first mainstream Nokia touch device the Nokia 5800 was announced. The Nokia E66 ran on Symbian 9.2, which really showcased how good Symbian ran on non-touchscreen devices. It was fast, feature-packed, and the hardware of the Nokia E66 still looks good today. The Nokia E series was a more business-focused series of devices, which focused on simplicity and elegance, as opposed to the N series which was aimed at multimedia users. What made the Nokia E66 special is the hardware, a mixture of stainless steel and plastic, as well as the satisfying slider mechanism, and sleek design.

In this video, I unbox and give my impressions of this classic favourite of mine, the Nokia E66 which I found recently refurbished and in a good condition. I’m opening the box for the first time on video, to keep my impressions as authentic as possible. I had previously owned the device back in the day so I was happy to find it once again in my favourite color. It had a more popular sibling, the Nokia E71, although for me the form factor of the E66 made it my choice.

The phone also came in bronze steel color, white, and red. Its specifications if you are curious are as follow:

  • 2.4″ display with a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels
  • ARM 11 processor clocked at 369Mhz
  • 124 MB of RAM, 110 MB of internal storage + SD card slot
  • 3.2 Megapixel camera with autofocus
  • 1000 mAh battery

So what device from that era do you have fond memories of? Have you owned a Nokia E66 back in the day? Let us know.
