Mainland China E71 (RM-493) differences[edit]

The E71 currently being sold in mainland China does not have Wi-Fi 802.11b/g WLAN networking or a back mounted camera. 3G was also excluded, because licenses for 3G in mainland China were only approved in early 2009.[4]

There is no reduction in price for phones lacking these features and a firmware update will not bring them back because the hardware itself is missing.[5] The E71 sold in Macau and Hong Kong do not lack these features. The software bundled with the Chinese version is slightly different, as it also has a QQ client, along with some other Chinese specific programs.
