Preview of UMTS smartphone Nokia E75

“Being a part of the Eseries range the E75 is designed for enterprise users, or at least that’s what this line-up’s purpose used to be. But what has happened to it over the last couple of years? Its members are getting more and more like other mass-market products both in terms of looks and functionality (including more streamlined casings, flashy color schemes and so on). The only unique feature characterizing Eseseries at this point is its software that enables the user to search for contacts, launch applications via shortcuts and other small traits. But the fact of the matter is that Nokia have finally admitted that there is no such thing as an “enterprise phone”, but there are people who want to get conventionally designed devices with a bunch of extra features thrown in for good measure. In this sense, the Nokia E75 takes us even further away from the original idea behind the Eseries and boasts support for NGage out of the box, which is something we wouldn’t dare dream of several years ago.” Read more here:
