Refreshed Nokla E81—With an L—Nokia Knockoff Packs Plenty of Swivel

If Nokia had ever followed through on that rumored swiveling "E71-type handset" we heard about last April, it would probably have looked a lot like Nokla's E81 phone here. In fact, Nokla's betting a few people don't know the difference.

Strangely, this is the second E81 phone that the knockoff artists at Nokla have put out. The first was a candybar phone that Nokla released to take advantage of the current lack of a legitimate Nokia "E81" phone in that company's ever-expanding product lineup.

The features are actually rather modest, but end up being completely overshadowed by the included mirror that graces the phone's swiveling backside.
