Nokia finally launches E66 and E71 officially
Well, it’s been quite a long time coming, but a little more than a month after we first heard rumors about the official launch date of these devices, Nokia has finally rolled out word about the E66 and E71.
Both Eseries devices take Nokia’s business range to a whole new level, offering superb functionality for power users and business-types, all while keeping a very elegant outside shell and overall impression.
The Nokia E71 is Nokia’s latest upgrade to their very own NokiaBerry, and is a wide-bodied QWERTY keyboard-equipped handset that boasts all the latest in convergence and connectivity: HSDPA, Wi-Fi, GPS with A-GPS and support for a wide variety of e-mail solutions.
It’s form factor is not that hard to notice, and surprisingly, Nokia has managed to pack a 3.2 megapixel autofocus camera with built-in flash to go with it.
The Nokia E66 is like a sliding counterpart of the Nokia E71, and looks to be every bit of the big brother of the Nokia E65.
At this point, there’s no way for us to test how well the sliding mechanism on the Nokia E66 works, but the stainless steel frame and seamless integration of the separated bodies look very reassuring.
Both the Nokia E71 and E66 offer an enhanced calendar, contacts, and customizable home screen modes. Internal memory is also expandable memory up to 8GB, and there are pre-loaded office tools, as well as support for Microsoft Exchange.
The Nokia E66 also features a built-in accelerometer that works to automatically adjust the screen for full screen viewing, and put the phone on silent mode as it is turned onto its face.
The Nokia E71 should be available by July for 350 Euro (before taxes) in gray steel or white steel, and so will the Nokia E66.
