After months of leaks, the Nokia E75 has begun shipping. The sliding candybar opens up to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard, and has the honor of being the first Nokia device to feature the company’s new email UI, complete with Microsoft Exchange support, together with being the first Eseries handset to include N-Gage gaming functionality.
Other specs include a 3.2-megapixel camera, GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth and an FM radio. The E75 is a quadband GSM handset supporting dualband (900/2100) HSDPA; it has a 2.4-inch 240 x 320 display and microUSB connector, together with a 3.5mm headset socket.
It’ll also come with a bevy of Nokia’s Ovi services preloaded, including Ovi Files and Nokia Maps. No official pricing from the company press release, but we’ve seen the Nokia E75 up for preorder in the UK for £389.99 ($576).
Email the way you want it – Nokia E75 begins shipping
Espoo, Finland – The Nokia E75 has arrived in stores, bringing the company’s best efficiency and productivity solution to the market. The new arrival is the first device to ship with the new email user interface, offering full desktop email functionality, and complete integration of Nokia’s email and messaging services.
Made from the quality materials one expects from Nokia Eseries, the Nokia E75 has a slide out QWERTY keyboard and efficient three-step email setup. This simplicity is achieved with the integration of Nokia Messaging, which ships with a device for the first time in the Nokia E75. Nokia Messaging is a service that opens up the world’s leading consumer email accounts – including Yahoo! Mail®, Gmail and Windows Live Hotmail – and is joined by Nokia’s corporate email clients, Mail for Exchange and IBM Lotus Notes Traveler, which provide direct access to over 90 percent of the world’s corporate inboxes as well.
The richer email experience in the Nokia E75 brings all of the owner’s accounts into one simple to access and easy to use UI, which supports the most common features for desktop email including expanding views, one click reply and sub-folder and HTML support. Added to the enhanced email functionality, upgraded personal information management features such as the ability to create and respond to meeting requests, and contacts lookup and auto-complete, also make their debut in the Nokia E75.
The Nokia E75 also integrates tightly to other Ovi services and ships with Ovi Files, for storing files online, Nokia Maps, which works with the onboard A-GPS, and Nokia’s games service N-Gage which is supported for the first time in a Nokia Eseries device.
