Nokia has upgraded its inventory of business class phones by adding two new devices, namely E55 and E75, which the mobile phone maker claims that both devices come bundled with Nokia Messaging feature, along with enhanced emailing capabilities, thereby allowing businessmen to carry out their tasks in enhanced and quicker manner.

Touted as an update of its erstwhile Nokia 9300 Communicator device, Nokia E75 boasts of a slide-out QWERTY keyboard to ease out emailing and messaging for business users; in addition the device also includes support for HTML mails, enhanced sorting options, along with expandable viewing feature.

On the other hand, Nokia E55, which seems to be an update of its E71 range and is probably the thinnest mobile phone in the world, indicates towards Nokia’s incessant efforts to compete with Blackberry devices, as it includes a mini QWERTY keyboard available right on the base of the handset.

In addition, both the handsets will host 3.2-megapixel cameras with the capabilities of video and flash capture, and Nokia Maps coupled with assisted GPS feature, which comes with three-month free assessment of turn-by-turn GPS navigation feature.

Glad to see Nokia firing on all cylinders. After OVI, adding new phones to its Enterprise range will certainly give some ammunition to its business proponents. Although both will go against Blackberry rivals, RIM's products still appear to have the edge when it comes to overall product range with the Storm, the Bold and many others.
