Yesterday Nokia launched two new models in the E-series range, these two models are E66 and E71. After this launch, now Nokia has 9 phones in its E-series segment. These handsets are having mobile email compatibility which supports more than 1000 thousand email accounts from almost all the leading email service providers like Gmail, Yahoo and Hotmail. Also Microsoft Office is installed in the mobile set where you can download email attachments in Word, Excel, Power point or PDF files. In Nokia E66, there is an orientation sensor which automatically optimizes itself for full screen viewing or activates the silent mode when the device is turned over. These two models will definitely attract the enterprise customers as both the handsets have integrated VPN support and use advanced encryption functionality. You have to pay Rs.22,949 and Rs. 23,689 for buying E71 and E66 respectively.
Nokia’s marketing director Devinder Kishore said, “Enterprise mobility is here to stay in India with wider acceptance of push email amongst corporates and prosumers. With both of these devices, we have responded to consumer feedback by making calendar and contacts available at the touch of a button.” The E71 has full BlackBerry Qwerty keyboard whereas the E66 slider gives email connectivity options, including Gmail and Windows Live. Moreover, the E66 has HSDPA connectivity for speedy downloads and has both Wi-Fi and GPS in the cell phone. Both the hand-sets have 2.4 inch screen and a 3.2-mega pixel camera and the main memory is expandable up to 8Gb with batter backup of 7.5 hours. But I think price is quite high so normal users will have to wait so that price would be reduced after some months.
