Nokia today launched three more phone models at Nokia Connection, which takes place in Singapore. Despite the location, the focus is not exclusive to the Asia-Pacific market and continues to focus on a global view, despite the weight that sales in this area assume.
Among the novelties we highlight the new smartphone of the QWERTY keyboard line, the Nokia E72, which will replace the E71. The mobile email and the connection to the messaging contacts directly with the minimum of configuration make the bridge between the professional and the personal world, showing that this is an increasingly blurred border.
The new model of the Eseries line allows you to directly configure instant messaging accounts, linking Yahoo! Messenger and Google Talk, or Ovi solutions, among others. Nokia does not mention Microsoft’s IM solutions, MSN Messenger, which is on the list of most used.
Compared to its predecessor, this model has better navigability between the menus and a 5 megapixel camera, as well as a standard 3.5 mm audio input.
The mobile phone is expected to go on sale in the third quarter of 2009 and the price is 350 euros, before taxes or operator fees, which puts it in a good position to compete with HTC and Blackberry models, or even the iPhone.
Nokia also launched a new XpressMusic model, the 5530, which is betting on the touch screen already applied to the model 5800, but now with a more “solid” finish and in five colors.
A “carousel” of contacts gives access to the 20 closest people, but music is at the center of this model that allows you to store files that last up to 27 hours, in addition to the 4 GBytes of additional memory. There is also, of course, a direct connection to the Nokia Music Store.
