Nokia today announced the Eseries, a new line of business-optimized devices. Like Nokia's Nseries, the new Eseries phones are a line of flagship smartphones with advanced baseline features. Features of all three initial models include the Series 60 platform 3rd Edition, QVGA or better displays, push email including BlackBerry and attachment editing, Wi-Fi with VoIP, Bluetooth 1.2, 75 MB of memory plus hot-swap memory card slots, speakerphone, EDGE and 3G high-speed data, corporate phone system integration, Push-To-Talk, and remote device management via the OMA DM standard.
- E60: Traditional bar-style 3G phone with VoIP, speakerphone, a 24-bit 352x416-pixel display, and a low-voltage RS-MMC slot. Supports GSM/EDGE 900/1800/1900 and WCDMA 2100.
- E61: A slim (0.55 inches) messaging phone to compete with the Motorola Q. Features a landscape 24-bit QVGA display, QWERTY keyboard, and a miniSD slot. Supports quad-band GSM/EDGE and WCDMA 2100.
- E70: A flip-open QWERTY keyboard phone similar to Nokia's 6800 series. Features include a 352x416-pixel display, 2 megapixel camera with CIF-resolution video capture, USB 2.0, miniSD slot, and Wi-Fi 802.11g/e/i. Available in a GSM/EDGE 850/1800/1900 version for the Americas, plus a 3G version for Europe and Asia.
Where's the 3G video calling?
PS all of these look pretty nice
To be ...
the e70 has a camera but it will only be edge in the united states, but it will be on a 3g network in asia and eu...
If they were smart...
Beautiful looking series. I have my eye on the E61.
The timing doesn't work...
Great phones, but Nokia is ?!?
And why, given it's a quad band w/ North Amer. 850 + WCDMA2100, is the phone only on Nokia's European site? Even a search at nokiausa.com for any instance of E61 yeilds zip. Prob. because they want to sell as many 6682's as they can, given the bungled release of that phone. It's a world phone, fer christs sake.
SO MUCH FOR THE N-SERIES
i admit... i like these a lot. not sure if i should go with the E70 or the 6280
There's not much point in going beyond 1.3 Mpixels if you're going to cripple the camera with a pinhole lens.
SymbianOS 9.1: phone company controls apps

Platform security is extended in Symbian OS v9, providing control over the capabilities of applications installed on the devices. This is done to ensure the integrity of the phones and the network, while still enabling an open environment for third party applications.
Integrity of the network, my *ss. It's about revenue integrity.
But I'll be very happy to be proven wrong.
That E70 might be the closest thing to a perfect phone I've ever seen.
I don't know about anyone else, but these phones might be the best business class handsets I've ever come across. Nice job Nokia.
well done nokia!
