Nokia is readying two E-series devices — the E66 and E71 — for release soon, as evidenced by press photos shown at the Mobile Phone Helpdesk website.
The shots show the E66, a slider running Symbian S60 Feature Pack 2, a long awaited update to the S60 user interface. Rumors have also peg the E66 with an updated office suite and a 3.2 MPx auto-focus camera.
The E71 will have a QWERTY with the BlackBerry/Treo/Motorola Q format. It will be an update to the Nokia E61i featuring a slimmer profile and increased feature set.
Unlike the E66, the E71 is slated to feature S60 Feature Pack 1. However, it will feature a 320×240 screen, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and UMTS connectivity.
This smartphone has had not just press shots, but a full review done before its on-sale date. The Boy Genius Report has put together a review of a near-production unit.
The E71 is going to be released in European and N. American 3G flavors. Recent rumors also point to a possible inclusion on the AT&T carrier deck.
