Nokia launches E6 smartphone

Not content with offering us one smartphone with Symbian Anna (that being the Nokia X7), Nokia has also introduced another, very different 'Anna' handset, the Nokia E6.

As we said earlier, Symbian Anna is the much-maligned operating system's latest upgrade, offering a new look via all-new icons, but some tweaks in features and functionality too. So faster browsing, enhanced searching, better Ovi Maps and perhaps more relevant for the E6, a set of business-friendly enhancements, including true enterprise grade security with hardware accelerated encryption, and new email features like full meeting request support.

That's because the E6 does have designs on the office. Following on from Nokia's E71 and E72 devices (which probably hints that the new device is replacing both), the E6 is described as both 'compact' and a 'sleek business smartphone', with that essential for a business device – the full QWERTY keypad. You probably wouldn't expect an eight-megapixel camera, but it does have that too, along with a healthy 14 hours of talktime and one month of standby.

Still not convinced it's the business phone for you? Well, the E6 also gets cosy with Microsoft, with 'the best out-of-the-box Microsoft messaging experience on a business smartphone', including access to Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft Communicator Mobile and Microsoft SharePoint. If that's enough to prize you away from your BlackBerry, the phone will be here around June, selling for €340 SIM-free and probably for free if you go down the contract route.
