CIO gadget done good

While consumer devices often make their way into enterprises as business users develop gadget envy, a business device that can make consumers drool is a rare beast indeed. Rare, that is, apart from the E63.

The smartphone, shown here, is the latest addition to Nokia eSeries of enterprise devices.

It's a more mass market version of the E71, a suited and booted business phone that won hearts and minds of the mainstream upon its launch in June.

Unlike its staid steel-coloured business predecessor, the E63 comes in two eye-watering colours: "ruby red" or "ultramarine blue".

According to Nokia, the E63 will aim to help users separate their work from their personal lives by allowing them to switch between work and play mode with a single key press.

Work mode offers a view of "corporate mail, appointments and intranet data", according to Nokia, whereas personal mode would show "a picture of friends, personal email and shortcuts to favorite hobby blogs or websites".

In keeping with its business heritage, the phone also comes with Files on Ovi, a service allowing users to get access to material on their PC.

The Qwerty device also comes with wi-fi, Bluetooth and GPS as well as a 2 megapixel camera.

It also sports one touch keys for business related functions including calendar and email.

The E63 should retail for around €199 before taxes and subsidies.
