What's this, a phone that actually arrives ahead of schedule? Our reviews editor would be proud.
The Nokia E75 hits UK shelves today, contrary to a previous launch date pegged at the end April.
It's the rather long-awaited big bro to Mobile Choice's Phone of the Year, the E71, and is equally adept at all the email, messaging and business functions you can shake a laser pointer at. Plus it's pretty as a picture.
As we reported yesterday, the E75 is the first phone to feature Nokia's new email interface, Nokia Messaging, with full HTML and expandable views, just like desktop email.
Unlike the candybar form of the E71, the E75 has a slide-out QWERTY, and email setup is accomplished in three quick steps. You'll be able to sync multiple email accounts, corporate and consumer, and set up two difference home screens for business and personal.
As well, it's integrated with Nokia's cloud platform Ovi, so you'll be able to store and access files from your PC even when it's offline. It also comes with HSDPA, Wi-Fi, A-GPS, and is preloaded with the excellent Nokia Maps and games service N-Gage, the first E-series to have it.
Available from Nokia flagship shops and http://www.nokia.co.uk/shop for £379 SIM-free.
