Hybrid Qwerty-touch business phone meets entertainment powerhouse...
Nokia has refreshed its Eseries range of Symbian-based business-focused handsets with the E6, pictured above, the successor to the E72 and E71 handsets - which were originally launched in 2008.
The Nokia E6 takes a hybrid approach to input, with a full physical Qwerty keyboard on the front of the handset below a capacitive touchscreen.
The handset is due to launch in the second quarter of this year, and it runs an updated version of Nokia's Symbian OS - known as Anna.
The E6 is made from glass and steel, and comes in three colours: black, pictured above, silver and white.
The HSDPA handset has 802.11a/b/n wi-fi and GPS. There's 8GB of onboard memory with up to 32GB supported via Micro SD card.
Nokia is touting the E6 as a device that can be operated with one hand. The TFT LCD screen is 2.46 inches and has a resolution of 640 x 480.
The battery life of the device is 14.8 hours of talk time using GSM or 7.5 hours with WCDMA, and up to one month on standby, according to Nokia.
Here's a view of some of the new icons used in the Anna update of the Symbian OS. Other updates include a faster browser, enterprise-grade security and messaging enhancements, and some tweaks to Ovi Maps.
Here's the steel-clad back of the E6. The device has an eight-megapixel camera, which supports video recording and playback.
The E6's dimensions are 115.5mm x 59mm x 10.5mm. Weight is 133g.
There's a micro USB port for charging and file transfer, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Nokia also announced the X7 - a device it's aiming at the gaming and entertainment market. The X7 has a four-inch Amoled capacitive touchscreen display, pictured above in portrait mode, with a resolution of 640 x 360. It also has an eight-megapixel camera that supports HD video recording.
The X7's device dimensions are 119.7mm x 62.8mm x 11.9mm. Weight is 146g.
Both the X7 and the E6 are plugged into various third-party social-networking services, such as Facebook and Twitter, delivering updates direct to the devices' home screen.
