Nokia E6 hits the stores

Finnish phone maker Nokia has opened up the pre-ordering of their recently announced Qwerty keyboard based E6, on contracts starting from £25 a month with a delivery date of June 6th.

Nokia’s E6 is aimed at the business world and is a successor to the E72 mobile phone, where the new handset will be the first to arrive with the updated code-named Symbian Anna platform.

Nokia’s E6 builds on from the existing BlackBerry-esque E71 and E72 models. The handset arrives with 2.46-inch TFT LCD 640x480 touch screen - the first time a touch screen has appeared alongside a Nokia Qwerty business keyboard.

Nokia’s next Symbian update is due to arrive with a host of usability enhancements, such as split-screen viewing of messages, webpages and maps, along with a virtual portrait Qwerty keypad, faster page downloading whilst web surfing and new search and public transport routes inside of Ovi maps.

The E6 boasts other corporate features that are now becoming standard to the ‘E’ series models, such as the Microsoft communicator mobile, with access to MS Exchange and Sharepoint servers, in addition to 8GB of internal storage.

Nokia’s E6 is listed on their own on-line store for £349 on pay as you go, or starting on a £25 price plan with Vodafone and an accompanying 500 minutes, unlimited text message bundle and a 500MB data allowance.
