WASHINGTON AND NEW YORK, USA – Today Nokia has launched the Nokia E73 Mode in the United States. Available exclusively to T-Mobile across the Atlantic, it’s the latest to join the business centric Eseries. Sporting a full QWERTY keyboard it’s the thinnest device on offer from the operator. It may be svelte, but it still manages to pack a few punches. Find out more after the jump.
The latest handset to emerge from the Eseries stable, the Nokia E73 Mode is a sober-suited follow-up to the business workhorse that is the Nokia E72. As a WiFi enabled QWERTY handset, running on T-Mobile’s blazing fast 3G network, keeping on top of emails and business is a breeze. Plus Nokia’s unique Switch mode feature, allows you to switch between fully customisable homescreens, meaning you’ll be able to keep up with you mates’ myriad of status updates too.
Taking care of business are a bevy of services such as a new email interface, Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync client and IBM Lotus Traveler, making it easier to juggle multiple inboxes, plus there’s support and access to Salesforce.com and Bloomberg. Add to these Ovi Files, QuickOffice, Adobe PDF Manager and Zip Manager to create an office on the move. The only office politics you’ll have to worry about is which coffee house to drink in.
The handset comes preloaded with Ovi Maps including free turn-by-turn navigation using the device’s built-in GPS, allowing you to find your way whether in a car, walking or on a push bike. Also preloaded on the device is Ovi Store with one touch access to a library of apps and games. And as an added extra from the Nokia and T-Mobile team-up, users will be able to pay for content as part of their monthly bill from T-Mobile.
Keeping up with the Nokia E72, there’s a five-megapixel camera with flash and autofocus, long battery life, full HTML Web browser and media player.
The Nokia E73 Mode is expected to be available on June 16th through T-Mobile retail stores, select authorised dealers and online at http://www.t-mobile.com.
