At the ongoing Mobile Web Congress, Nokia unveiled two E-series smartphones – the E75 and E55. The Nokia E75 is the successor to the highly popular E71 which was released last year, while the Nokia E55 is a follow up to affordable smartphone E51. Both these mobile phones are said to be loaded with Nokia’s new email interface which according to Nokia give a more efficient corporate email solution. This is a feature which made the BlackBerry devices successful in conquering the corporate mobile phone users.
Nokia has partnered with Microsoft and Lotus Notes to make this possible. And while we’re at it, the said email interface would have folder and HTML email support, expandable views and sorting capability by date, sender and size. Yes, something similar to the email experience that you have on your desktop. In addition, the new email interface would also have improved calendar functionality, contact and task management.
Taking a lot of inspiration from Nokia’s highly business mobile device, the Nokia 9300, the E75 would cater not only to smartphone users but to mobile gamers as well. Aside from its full support for Nokia Maps and assisted GPS feature with a 3-month license for turn-by-turn navigation, the phone is also loaded with N-Gage functionality. So, that takes care of our Nokia mobile gamer friends’ needs. In addition, the Nokia E75 also supports Nokia’s Ovi service, particularly useful for sharing files in the cloud.
Similarly, the Nokia E55 also features aGPS, Nokia Maps and N-Gage support. But since it is geared for consumers who are looking for an mid-range smartphone, its best feature would have to be its full QWERTY keyboard which was well loved by Nokia E51 users transitioning from the standard keypads of regular mobile phones.
The Nokia E75 will have an SRP of around $483 when it gets released sometime in March, while the Nokia E55 is expected to arrive sometime during the second quarter with an SRP of around $341.
