Nokia today announced the latest addition to its E-series of business-oriented smartphones, the E50.
This will be a relatively small device with a candybar design. It will include a 320-by-240-pixel screen above a numberpad. On its back will be a 1.3 megapixel camera with support for both images and video.
The E50 will run the Symbian OS and use the latest version of Nokia’s S60 user interface.
It will have 70 MB of internal memory and a microSD card slot.
Nokia’s E-series is targeted at business, and the E50 is no exception.
For example, its email client will include an attachment viewer for Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel, and it will be compatible with Zip Manager and Adobe Reader .
The E50 will also have a high-quality speakerphone for conference calls.
It will come with Nokia’s Intellisync push email system, plus support for third-party email solutions including BlackBerry Connect, Visto Mobile, ActiveSync Mail for Exchange, and Altexia.
Pricing and Availability
Nokia says this smartphone will be available during the second quarter of this year. It is listed as being intended for Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, but as a Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE device, it will work virtually anywhere in the world.
Pricing will be set by the various carriers that offer it.
