Nokia E72 and E75 revealed on YouTube, E72 has unique slide-out QWERTY

Summary:I usually have a pretty good idea of the rumors surrounding mobile devices, but I was caught completely by surprise with the news of the Nokia E72 and E75 that was posted over at Symbian Freak today. The E72 is the first Nokia device to have a slide-out QWERTY keyboard much like several Windows Mobile devices (Touch Pro, HTC Vox, and new HTC S740) while the E75 looks like an upgrade to the E71.

I usually have a pretty good idea of the rumors surrounding mobile devices, but I was caught completely by surprise with the news of the Nokia E72 and E75 that was posted over at Symbian Freak today. The E72 is the first Nokia device to have a slide-out QWERTY keyboard much like several Windows Mobile devices (Touch Pro, HTC Vox, and new HTC S740) while the E75 looks like an upgrade to the E71.

As you can see in the YouTube video posted below (pulled down now, but there are screen captures on Symbian Freak), someone posted a Nokia advertisement video of both of these devices. I am loving the Nokia E71 and am still working on my full review that I plan to post next week and wonder what is improved in the E75. Most likely it will have S60 Feature Pack 2 and maybe a better camera, but there isn't much else to improve on with this device.

The E72 though is quite a departure for Nokia, although they did have the flip out QWERTY keyboard Eseries devices (E70) and E90 devices that were not that standard.

We don't have any other information on specifications, pricing or availability and this is the only piece of information I have been able to find on these two devices.
