Nokia reveals the slim, sleek, and powerful E72 messaging device

Summary:The Nokia E71 (see my review) is one of my all time favorite Nokia devices and is a work powerhouse. There are a few issues that I compromise on and with the announcement of the Nokia E72 it looks like Nokia has fixed each of these issues. The major improvements in the E72 over the E71 are a 5 megapixel camera, use of a standard 3.5mm headset jack vs. a 2.5mm headset jack, excellent Nokia Messaging application (like the one found on the E75), digital compass, and other improvements. It should be available in the 3rd quarter of 2009 for an estimated retail price of $488.
