Nokia today unveiled two new smartphone devices that will hit the market in July. While the Nokia E71 and E66 differ in design, both devices' emphasis is on email with each supporting email accounts for more than one thousand internet service providers (ISPs), as well as more consumer accounts such as Gmail, Yahoo! mail and Hotmail. The Nokia E71 boasts a full QWERTY keyboard for one or two-handed use, and the E66 is a slider handset that sports a more standard keypad with an orientation sensor that automatically optimises itself for full-screen viewing.
Both the Nokia E71 and E66 house HSDPA, A-GPS and Nokia Maps for navigation, a 3.2-megapixel camera and a music player that can support up to 8GB of expandable memory. Furthermore, both devices have the ability to download Word, Excel, PowerPoint and PDF attachments, as well as being able to switch between personal and work homescreens. Consumers of either device will also be able to take advantage of Nokia's OVI services, including maps, music and media sharing.
The Nokia E71 and E66 are available both in grey or white steel, with an expected retail price of around £275 (before taxes and subsidies).
