Nokia E73 Mode / E72
Today Nokia and T-Mobile announced the E73 Mode, the newest in Nokia's family of monoblock-style QWERTY phones. The E73 Mode is a follow-up device to the E72 and carries forward the same basic form factor. According to Nokia, the E73 is compatible with T-Mobile's 3G network, and also has Wi-Fi. It runs S60, and has the same mode switch found on the E71 and E72, which lets users create two different profiles for different usage scenarios. The E73 includes Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync client, IBM Lotus Traveler, and a number of other business-friendly features such as Ovi Files, QuickOffice, Adobe PDF Manager and Zip Manager. The E73 will be pre-loaded with Ovi Maps, which offers turn-by-turn directions for free. Nokia said that T-Mobile customers will be able to make content purchases from the Ovi Store using their T-Mobile account. The E73 also has a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus and flash, WebKit-based browser, and a media player. It will be available from T-Mobile starting June 16. It will cost $70 with a new contract.
