T-Mobile USA will release the Nokia E73 Mode later this month. This messaging-oriented Symbian smartphone will have a slim design featuring a small keyboard, 3G, GPS, and Wi-Fi.
The E73 Mode will use a tablet shape, with a 2.4-inch QVGA (320 x 240) display above an optical trackpad and a QWERTY keyboard.
Nokia is positioning this as a cross-over device, good for both work and play. It will come with this company’s Switch Mode feature, which allows users to switch between customizable home screens set up for different purposes, whether it’s business or personal life.
This smartphone will be able to get email from consumer services as well as Microsoft Exchange. It will also include a web browser and multimedia player.
Business users should find the bundled copies of QuickOffice, Adobe PDF Manager, Ovi Files, and ZIP Manager useful.
This Nokia model will be able to access the Ovi Store, which provides access to thousands of third-party productivity applications and games.
Wireless and More
The E73 Mode will support T-Mobile 3G network. It will also have Wi-Fi for making VoIP calls and high-speed data access.
Other features are going to include a 5 megapixel camera with flash and auto-focus, Bluetooth, and a microSD memory card slot.
It is going to have a GPS receiver and Ovi Maps, Nokia’s free turn-by-turn navigation service.
Overall, it will be 4.5 by 2.3 by 0.4 inches and weigh 4.5 ounces.
The Nokia E73 Mode will be released on June 16 through T-Mobile retail stores, select authorized dealers, and at www.t-mobile.com.
