Nokia E72 and Nokia 5800 navigation edition land in the US

USA – America rejoice, the long awaited Nokia E72 is now available in the USA. If you’re near either the New York or Chicago flagship stores right now, you’ll be able to walk right in and pick up a brand new Nokia E72. Joining Nokia’s newest business messaging device is the Nokia 5800 navigation edition, complete with a lifetime license for voice guidance and a car kit so you can easily mount the device on your windshield.

According to a survey commissioned by Nokia, almost two thirds of Americans plan to access and respond to email during their holiday vacation. This is up from just over half in last year’s survey. Now, with the E72, messaging on the move doesn’t need to be such a chore, and certainly means the laptop can be left behind. And, if email isn’t enough, there’s always Instant Messaging, which also works a treat.

The Nokia E72 is available now for $469 through, Best Buy and other independent retailers.
