Nokia E6 is a compact QWERTY and touch device aimed at business and general users who need to get things done while they’re on the move. Busy emailers rejoice – there’s now a new Symbian business device that you can operate single-handed.
The QWERTY and touch experience on the Nokia E6 offers faster navigation and operation than either a pure touch or keyboard-only system. While experienced users can get much faster text-entry from a QWERTY keyboard than they ever will from a touch display, being able to launch apps and choose options through the touch screen is often quicker than navigating through options with the thumbpad. It’s the best of both worlds for busy emailers and status-updaters.
The device measures 115.5 x 59 x 10.5mm and weighs 133g. The 8-megapixel full focus (EDOF) camera has a dual-LED flash, 2X digital zoom (3X in video mode) and offers HD 720p video recording at 25fps.
The screen is a bright 2.46-inch LCD capacitive touch display offering 16mn colours and a resolution of 640 by 480 pixels. It’s made of Corning Gorilla Glass for great durability.
The device comes with 8MB of internal memory and support for MicroSD cards up to 32MB. The battery is a removable Nokia BP-4L 1500mAH – rated for up to a month on standby and 7h30m talk-time over 3G – longer over GSM connections. As you would expect, it offers Pentaband 2G/3G network support for world travellers and WiFi connectivity through 802.11 b/g/n. There’s also Bluetooth 3.0 with support for stereo headphones.
For the many existing Nokia E71 and E72 users, the Nokia E6 is the upgrade they’ve been waiting for. They now get a much higher resolution screen (four times the pixels), the latest Symbian operating system, Symbian Anna, improved support for Mail for Exchange, Microsoft Communicator Mobile, SharePoint and Office documents. There’s much more memory, much better connectivity and an 8-megapixel camera. There’s also support for USB On-The-Go and AV-out for connecting to a television or headphones.
Like other Symbian phones, the Nokia E6 comes with free global walk and drive navigation through the latest Ovi Maps. It also comes with free push email and IM, providing you have a data plan. The latest Symbian operating system now comes with five home screens, an improved browser and redesigned interface (there’s more info on Symbian Anna ). Bundled software includes QuickOffice, World Traveler, JoikuSpot Premium and F-Secure Mobile Security. More apps can be downloaded and installed through Ovi Store.
The Nokia E6 is expected to ship in Q2 2011 – before taxes and subsidies it will cost €340. North American availability is expected in Q3.
