Phone Preview: Nokia E60 Phone

Today we’ll look at the Nokia E60 phone which rounds out Nokia’s Eseries business line of cell phones.

The Nokia E60 is Nokia’s other candy bar phone along with the E70 blackberry-type phone aimed at the corporate market. It’s a triband “world” phone, no 850, so it looks like we’ll be seeing it on Tmobile if anything…

One notable feature is the high-res screen, comparable to the Nokia N90 (352×416) and very impressive looking. No word yet on how many applications will support the high-res screen considering about 1% of all Symbian applications support that resolution.

There’s WLAN (or wi-fi) support giving you internet access at any hotspot, and support for some serious email clients (Blackberry connect, Visto). The E60 will also allow you to make VoIP internet calls over WLAN.

Nokia is really pushing the “voice features” on the Nokia E60 with the introduction of “Voice Aid” and a couple other voice-related features. Yeah, the E60 has the typical Nokia loudspeaker, voice commands, voice recording, Push to Talk, and conference calling. However, “voice aid” lets you use your phone without actually looking at it through “audio feedback” (whether this is a voice or just some sounds has not been confirmed). You can use voice aid to change the volume, browse your contact list, check call logs, and provide the current time. Nokia has also not specified what languages are supported with the voice aid feature.

A close-up of the E60 keypad. The E60′s keypad is a little funky looking with some odd looking gaps in the middle.

On a final note – the camera feature is noticeably absent from the Nokia E60. This is a hardcore business phone, all right.
