Nokia E6 and Nokia X7 added to Nokia's Symbian ^3 range
All the emphasis may be on Nokia’s Windows Phone smartphones, but the Finnish manufacturer hasn’t given up hope of selling a few more Symbian ^3 devices yet. As such, it officially launched the Nokia E6 and X7 today, with both handsets available for pre-order.
It’s the Nokia E6 that interests us the most, as its ancestors – the Nokia E71 and Nokia E72 – were pretty decent handsets. With a proper keypad, it offers something a little different from the rest of Nokia’s Symbian ^3 range.
Like its siblings, it still gets a touchscreen (albeit a compact 2.46-inch one), with a pin-sharp 640×480-pixel resolution that promises to make the best of websites and emails. If you’re after a smartphone where texting or email is at the top of your agenda, the E72 could well be worth a look.
Nokia has also added the X7 to its range, which is a conventional touchscreen Symbian ^3 handset. With a 4-inch AMOLED screen, it’s one of the largest smartphones in Nokia’s current range, with features including 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0 and an 8-megapixel camera.
Both the Nokia E6 and the Nokia X7 are available for pre-order today, costing £399 and £359, respectively, SIM-free.
