Nokia E51 executive phone

Does the business

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

In standard S60 style, a set of six icons are lined on the top row of the display for further quick access shortcuts - again, these can be reconfigured. This flexibility should appeal to folk who want to use a few key functions regularly so you don’t have to delve too deeply into the extensive menu system to find what you’re after.

The E51 is well-equipped to integrate with corporate email systems. It supports multiple push email and remote synchronisation offerings, including Mail for Exchange, BlackBerry, Visto and Nokia's own Intellisync

Ready for corporate email

Attachments or documents transfered to the E51 can be viewed using the Quickoffice suite of document viewers for Word, PowerPoint and Excel files. There’s also a PDF reader and Zip file manager. If you want to edit documents with Quickoffice, however, you’ll need to pay for an upgrade to the software (available via a link in the Options menu).

Nokia has provided the E51 with plenty of other business tools. Nokia Team Suite enables users to create groups of contacts, making it easy to send messages and emails, initiate calls to one or more of the team, and to keep notes on team communications, web bookmarks retain to the team and so on.

As well as the usual extensive contacts, calendars, notes and to-do lists you expect on an S60 device, Nokia has included Active Notes, an application where you can add notes, images, videos, sound clips, bookmarks and so on, which you can then mail to other users. A voice recorder and text-to-voice reader for texts are also useful standard S60 features included on the E51.

As usual contacts, calendar, notes and email can be synchronised to a PC using the supplied Nokia PC Suite software via the supplied USB cable, infrared, or Bluetooth.
