Today all seems to be about touchscreen phones. But what if you prefer a QWERTY keyboard? The Nokia E6 offers that keyboard, but also with a touchscreen for easy navigation.
Lovers of the previous E series devices such as the E71 or E72 will feel very at home with this new E6 as it has a very similar form-factor. If you get tired of scrolling through the menu with the navi-key, raise your thumb a little to launch apps or select an email to read from the screen above.
The screen has four times the pixels of its predecessors making it a real visual treat with higher resolution, and the toughened glass means that no matter how heavy handed you are, it’s much less likely to scratch when you put it to the test.
Already loaded with QuickOffice, F-Secure Mobile Security, World Traveler and JoikuSpot Premium, you’re able once again to take your office out on-the-road and feel safe in doing so. And access to Ovi Store means you can continue to find new apps that make your life (work or personal) a little easier.
Of course, Symbian Anna is the OS that powers the Nokia E6, providing the new set of icons and a gives you five homescreens to flick through and customise (this option is only on the E6, though).
Traveling and staying connected overseas has never been easier, as the Nokia E6 comes with Pentaband 2G/3G support. It’ll work practically everywhere. Even when you’re trying to connect to the Net.
What they say
“The Nokia E6 is a worthy successor of its QWERTY bar messengers and has everything to become a bestseller – one-of-a-kind touchscreen with high resolution, excellent build quality and keyboard, a capable hardware and camcorder plus the new Symbian Anna UI.”
If you do only one thing
When traveling from one place to another, the Nokia E6 makes an excellent companion, especially when it comes to storing data. With USB On-The-Go you’re always able to swap files from a USB flash drive to your phone and vice-versa.
The Nokia E6 has more pixels per inch (ppi) than the iPhone 4′s Retina display. E6 measures 328ppi and the iPhone 4 measured 326ppi.
The 8-megapixel EDOF camera records at 720p at 25 fps, leaving you with perfectly smooth playback.
With Bluetooth 3.0 on-board, the Nokia E6 is complying to new standards in the industry. This will ultimately make transferring of data from your device to another faster and more energy efficient.
