Nokia E71i with 5 mpx camera and FP2 on the way?

With more than 10 million units sold in the last 6 months of 2008 only, Nokia E71 is probably the most successful Nokia device of last year.

And it really is a great smartphone.

The only thing that’s been putting me off getting one was its 3.2 megapixel camera.

8, 10, 12 megapixels in a camera phone… I don’t really care. 5 mpx is good enough for me. But not less.  And,  I guess, I’m not the only one.

Well, looks like we won’t have to wait long to go for E71. According to a very trusted source :) , Nokia is readying a minor upgrade to this handset – Nokia E71i. With a 5 megapixel camera in it.

In addition to a better camera, there shouldn’t be any major changes.  Why fix something that ain’t broken?

E71i’s software will be upgraded to S60 FP2, just like in the current American Nokia  E71x on AT&T. It  will also get a color makeover, with a brown/mocha color scheme as a distinct possibility.

Nokia E71i should be announced sometime this fall – October or, maybe,  even in September, during Nokia World.
