Nokia Launches Two New Email-Optimized Devices

Nokia has introduced two new email-optimized devices from its E-series product range the Nokia E71 and Nokia E66. Both devices are expected to begin shipping in key markets in July 2008.

The Nokia E71 with full QWERTY keyboard and the Nokia E66 mobilize a broad range of personal or professional messaging needs, including Microsoft Exchange. The Nokia E71 and the Nokia E66 are expected to retail at E350, before applicable taxes and subsidies.

According to Nokia, the Nokia E71 and Nokia E66 support email accounts from more than a thousand internet service providers around the world, as well as Gmail, Yahoo! mail and Hotmail. Additionally, the Nokia E71 and Nokia E66 support the Nokia Intellisync Wireless Email solution as well as third party email solutions like System Seven and Visto Mobile. Both devices come with the new switch mode that allows people easily to switch between personal and work home screens.

Soren Petersen, senior vice president of devices at Nokia, said: "The Nokia E71 and Nokia E66 were designed for people who lead a mobile lifestyle and want quick and easy access to their personal and work email. With both of these devices, we have responded to consumer feedback by making calendar and contacts available at the touch of a button.

"Equally important, people want well-crafted devices that are as beautiful to use as they are to behold. Stainless steel was chosen as the core material for these devices, giving them additional strength and a touch of class. Furthermore, the Nokia E71 and Nokia E66 offer all the latest multimedia features that people desire."
