Nokia E55 to come in red too

Last week, when Nokia officially announced the ultrathin Nokia E55, the smartphone only appeared in two color versions: black and white.

But the Finnish manufacturer also has a red E55, or at least that’s what some new leaked pictures lead us to believe.

Spotted at mobile.mail.ru, the pictures show the half-QWERTY handset dressed in the above-mentioned color and, well, it does look pretty.

So it seems that Nokia’s really into red when it comes to Eseries handsets, since we also have a red E71, a red E75 and a (partially) red E63.

Presented by Nokia as “the world’s most compact messaging device”, the E55 runs on Symbian S60 3.2 Edition and features stuff like Wi-Fi, a 2.4 inch QVGA display with 16 million colors, digital compass, a 3.5mm headset jack and a 3.2MP autofocus camera.

And although it measures only 9.9 mm in thickness, the smartphone packs a 1500 mAh battery said to provide up to 8 hours of talk-time or up to 30 days of stand-by time.

Nokia E55 should be available starting the second quarter of 2009, for the retail price of 265 Euros (about $336). However, it’s not clear yet if the red version will be on sale at the same time with the black and white ones.
