Nokia E51 executive phone

Does the business

Security for virtualized datacentres

Below the nav-pad are the usual call/end keys and a backspace button. The standard phone numberpad beneath is large, and the buttons are quick to press and really responsive – welcome in a handset where messaging is a key feature.

Despite being built for email, there’s no Qwerty keyboard hidden away anywhere on the E51. The target audience isn’t the user who needs a BlackBerry - Nokia already has devices for that, like the E61i and E90 Communicator.

Bright screen, but a bit smaller than we're used to

The E51 carrier isn’t envisaged having to compose long emails or reports on their phone. If they need more tapping power, however, the E51 has support for wireless Bluetooth keyboards.

As well as Bluetooth, the E51 supports infrared connectivity with a window on the side next to the voice control/recorder button. Usefully, a mute key is on the other side, between the volume controls. Just above the display, where you might expect to find a secondary video call camera, there’s a notification light to show when you have incoming messages or have missed a call.

Nokia S60 smartphone users will be familiar with the user interface on the E51. Usefully, in the Active Standby page, Nokia has shortcuts for setting up email, internet telephony and voicemail, which take to you to the relevant set-up wizards or downloads. These disappear once you’ve completed the set-up procedures.

The other standby page plug-in shortcuts – which out of the box also contain a WLAN set-up, and calendar entry alerts - can be configured to suit your own requirements, bringing up message inbox, to-do list updates, shortcuts to music player and so on, on the Active Standby page.
