Nokia E-Series Targets Mobility Applications

Nokia unveiled three Eseries devices aimed at business mobility applications, such as mobile email and advanced voice calling functions. The new Nokia E60, Nokia E61 and Nokia E70, which will be available in Q1 2006, support corporate mobile email solutions like BlackBerry Connect, GoodLink from Good Technology, Inc., Nokia Business Center, Seven Mobile Mail, Seven Always-On Mail and Visto Mobile.

The new Nokia Eseries devices are built on the latest edition of the Series 60 smartphone software platform. They include a variety of GSM frequencies and 3G (WCDMA) cellular network support for seamless roaming across different countries, as well as a range of local connectivity options such as WLAN, Bluetooth and Infrared and are USB 2.0 compatible.

The devices support VoIP calls, Push to talk, and other SIP-based rich call services. Companies deploying an Avaya or Cisco IP PBX can connect the new Nokia devices directly to their corporate phone networks, enabling functions employees have come to expect from a corporate network like four-digit dialing and assisted call answering.

Nokia said its new business-optimized devices are the first in the industry to support remote device management based on OMA DM, which provides IT managers with tools to remotely control and protect corporate data on the device and configure devices via device wipe, device lock or task management, application management and customization, for example.
