Nokia E6 Review

Nokia E6 Review

BlackBerry may be the name associated with QWERTY messaging phones, but there's a vocal cadre of Nokia users all too keen to talk about the merits of the Finnish company's keyboard-blessed candybars. The E72 met with mixed reactions, failing to quite capture affection the way its E71 predecessor did; now we have the E6 (aka Nokia E6-00), pairing keyboard and touchscreen and offering a taste of the latest Symbian flavor, Anna. Is the E6 enough to distract us from the rapid approach of Nokia's first Windows Phones? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Nokia Symbian Anna OS update: Portrait QWERTY, Ovi Maps boost

Nokia may be looking ahead to a shiny Windows Phone future, but that doesn't mean Symbian is left spinning in the wind. The company still expects to ship 150m Symbian devices this year (having sold 100m in 2010), and it still intends to invest in the platform to refine the experience for new and existing users.

Nokia N8 starts shipping

Nokia N8 starts shipping

Nokia's N8 has begun shipping, and you do get the feeling from the company's tersely-titled press release (which you can read after the cut) that they're getting no small amount of satisfaction from proving wrong the naysayers who predicted lengthy delays.  To be fair, as we heard previously, you'll have had to be among the first batch of pre-order customers if you want to get your N8 smartish; Nokia says there'll be "broad availability" over the coming weeks.
