Nokia BlackBerry killers hit the streets

Email crazy

Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

Nokia has launched three new mobile phones designed to please both the IT department and the business and mobile email user.

Nokia e70 mobile phone

The E60, E61 and E70 are the first of the E-series and will be available in the first quarter of 2006. They run on Symbian operating systems and will work on GSM and 3G networks. They can also link to WLANs using Bluetooth and infrared. According to Nokia they are easy for IT departments to manage security settings, corporate apps and data.

Nokia said: "when developing these devices, two clear new trends emerged: the need for IT departments to have a secure and manageable platform, and the need for devices to support a variety of employee preferences and different working styles."

The E61, which looks like a PDA, has a full keyboard and joystick and will support many email clients including BlackBerry Connect, Goodlink, Seven Mobile Mail and Visto Mobile. Visto said the phones: "will meet the needs of business end users and the IT professionals that support them."

The E70 has a fold-out butterfly keyboard, full colour screen which can handle email and basic editing.
