Nokia E75 in the Philippines: Photos and Hands On


After previewing the Nokia N97, I was given an extra treat with the new E75, Nokia’s latest enterprise phone. Let’s say you had a Nokia E71 — stretch the keyboard to a full QWERTY and tuck it behind the E66. That’s probably the best way to describe the new E75.

A full preview after the jump.

The specs are pretty much the same thing we saw with the E71 so if you’re having a little gadget lust, restrain yourself please! Bluetooth, WLAN (WiFi 802.11g), a 3.2MP camera, and HSDPA support. The unit I was playing with had a little gap between the device and keyboard. This made the phone move a bit when I would press down keys from the numerical keypad (sort of like how some dinner tables have one leg slightly shorter than the other). I hope Nokia fixes this issue as what was shown to me was again, a prototype.

The E75 brings something new to the table, and that is the Nokia Messaging allowing you access to up to 10 email addresses when you’re on the go. I think this is why the latter release of Nokia phones starting with the E71 removed BlackBerry push email – to support something that favors an all-Nokia lockout.




All in all, the E75 adds new usability to the already great lineup of E series devices. If you’ve been clamoring for a phone that had a communicator look with all the enterprise functions of the E series phones (revamped dual home screens, revamped calendar, Nokia Messaging), this could be your next phone.

There is still no price released as of late but the phone is due out in Q2 2009. So what do you think? You can either leave a comment or join the Plurk discussion.
