Today Nokia announced the smallest E-series Symbian phone, the E50.
The latest addition in this product line is with bar shape and is only 113 mm x 43.5 mm x 15.5 mm big and weighs 104 g. It is a quad-band business phone with some interesting technologies implemented in it, like the Avaya Communication Manager which is used for connecting to company ground phones via your Nokia E50. The display of the new Nokia is 262K colors one with 240 x 320 pixels resolution. The phone runs on Symbian 9.1 OS and is based on the 3rd generation S60 user interface. Various business and office features like Intellisync Wireless Email, BlackBerry Connect, Visto Mobile, Activesync Mail for Exchange, and Altexia support and office documents viewer are also built-in. Nokia E50 handles .zip archives and .pdf documents, too.
Connectivity options are GPRS and EDGE, both Class 10. Bluetooth, Infrared and USB short range connectivity is also available. Nokia E50 has 70 MB internal memory and offers a microSD card slot for further extension. The phone has music and video playback support and also features a 1.3 megapixel camera with 4x zoom and video capture. This, however, depends on the local market and dealers, in some markets E50 will be released without a camera. The phone has one preinstalled game and supports both Symbian and Java games so the entertainment part is well ensured.
Currently, Nokia E50 price and release date remain unknown.
