Nokia's latest enterprise device has been made available to purchase unlocked and SIM free for £259, through the Finnish phone makers own online retail store.
Nokia's E5 is their Qwerty keyboard based handset that has the appearance of a traditional RIM device, whilst building upon the success of the previous Nokia E71 and E72 handsets.
The former Wellington boot makers E5 is aimed squarely at messaging, with its large and easy to use keyboard with access to a decent range of messaging services from Exchange to Lotus notes. All of which is displayed on the accompanying 2.36-inch screen, whilst running the Symbian S60 3rd edition platform at the same time.
The internal memory has been upped from the E72, which only had 250MB where the E5 now has 512MB and support for 32GB microSD cards.
Also included is their Ovi Maps solution, which is Nokia's own Sat Nav and pedestrian turn by turn navigator with TimeOut, Expedia, Michelin, Lonely Planet, Qype and Trip Advisor apps.
The website page selling the Nokia E5 also notes the phone is available on contract from O2, Vodafone and T-Mobile whilst also arriving on pay as you go with the last two networks.
At the beginning of September Nokia is hosting the company's annual Symposium called Nokia World in London, in which One Mobile Ring will be attending and bringing you news as it happens from the event with images and video of their latest products.
