In yet another leak ahead of next week’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, retailer Expansys managed to let the cat out of the bag and posted up full details of the new Nokia E75 business smartphone.
Running on 850/900/1800/1900 (Quad-Band)/WCDMA 900/2100 (Dual-Band) GSM networks and HSDPA (3.6Mbps), the stylish, high-gloss handset packs a 2.4″ 240×320 QVGA display with numerical keypad and a slide out QWERTY keyboard.
The onboard auto-focus camera serves up 3.2 mega-pixels resolution with digital zoom and LED Flash, plus high resolution VGA Video Recording and 30fps Video Recording (QVGA).
The E73 supports MP4, 3GP, H.264, Flash, H.263 & Real Player video formats plus MP3, AAC, eAAC+ & WMA music files.
There’s also a built-in FM Stereo Radio, access to the Nokia Music Store and support for the Nokia Podcast Support and Nokia Music Manager.
The phone can hook up to your PC via a fiddly microUSB port, but at least there’s a 3.5mm socket for slamming in your favourite headphones, backed up by a microSDHC slot for loading up the handset with extra tunes.
Connectivity options are good too, with Bluetooth (2.0), Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11g) plus AGPS with Nokia maps.
The phone’s business focus is mirrored by the inclusion of Nokia’s Dual Home Screens option offering Work and Personal settings, and there’s an Office Document Viewer with support for Word, Excel & PowerPoint, plus a PDF Document Viewer, ZIP File Manager and Remote Lock.
The battery is an 1000 mAh affair, offering 630 mins talk, 408 hrs stand-by time.
Expansys are citing UK availability from 13th March at an unlocked price of £389 with the phone free on selected T-Mobile tariffs. It all looks good to use, but we’re a lot more excited by the Nokia N97 which looks a beaut.
