Here are the differences between the budget E63 and the high-end E71:
* The E63 has a colored plastic shell versus the E71’s metal one. The front is a metallic-finish, whilst the back cover is a soft-touch finish - both attract far few fingerprints than the E71’s.
* The E63 is nearly identical in dimensions to the E71 except for the depth - the E63 is around 1.5 times the depth of the E71.
* The E63 has a 3.5mm jack on top versus the E71’s 2.5mm jack on the side. This appears to be the first E-series to have a standard headphone socket - something normally saved for N-series.
* The E63 has no side buttons for volume or voice recording. It’s also missing the E71’s IR window.
* The E63 has a revised keyboard layout, adding a ‘/’ button on the lower row, shortening the space bar.
* The E63 appears to have a slightly smaller dimension screen although it is the same 320 by 240 pixels as the E71.
* The E63 lacks internal GPS.
* The E63 does not support HSDPA data.
* The E63 has the same 110 meg internal memory, but is shipped without an additional memory card (although a slot to add one is present).
* The E63 has a 2MP camera versus the E71’s 3.2MP and has a fixed focus.
* The E63 adds a flashlight function that allows the camera’s LED flash to be used as a torch.
* The E63 lacks the E71’s faux-leather slip case.
And here's the key business features still present in the E63:
* 3G (there had been some rumours this was 2G only)
* Microsoft Exchange sync via MailForExchange
* Expandable memory
* Fast operation and stable S60 3rd Edition FP1 OS
* Pre-installed QuickOffice
* E-series security and encryption functions
* Huge 1500mAh battery
