Nokia E75 mobile phone – Nokia takes on BlackBerry for mobile email supremacy

Nokia Australia today launched its latest addition to the Nokia Eseries range, the Nokia E75, and showcased its consumer and corporate email solutions at a media event in Sydney.

The full QWERTY Nokia E75 will be the first to ship with Nokia’s new email user interface, offering a richer mobile email experience.

The Nokia E75 comes standard with Nokia Messaging giving people the most efficient solution for consumer and corporate email to be pushed directly to their device.

Nokia Messaging is an email application that has been designed specifically to support mobile email and instant messaging. Nokia Messaging mobilises ISP’s email solutions on Nokia devices giving consumers and businesses access to their personal email accounts from providers such as Yahoo!, Hotmail, Gmail and AOL, and company accounts. Additionally, the Nokia E75 lets you manage up to 10 email accounts on the one device.

The Nokia E75 also supports Mail for Exchange (Microsoft Exchange Activesync) and IBM Lotus Notes Traveler Mail with no additional infrastructure costs or user licensing fees, making it a cost-effective solution for businesses of any size, big or small.

With the latest Eseries devices, people will no longer need a PC to get a full desktop email experience. The enhanced email UI includes folder and HTML email support, expandable views and sorting capability, as well as the most commonly used email functions – just a single click away. On top of email, the device also offers improved calendar capability, as well as contacts and task management.

Price and availability

The Nokia E75 will be available in Australia this weekend – you’ll find it in Telstra, Optus, 3 Mobile, Virgin, Vodafone. In fact it will be on offer in most Australian telco’s stores. The RRP of the E75 is $979.

GadgetGuy was given a review copy of the E75, and will tomorrow publish a ‘First Look’ at the phone.
