Nokia E72 ready for pre-order in the UK

Nokia E72 ready for pre-order in the UK The successor to Nokia’s popular E71 business handset is currently taxiing on the runway ready to beguile besuited types across the land.

The new Nokia E72 is now listed for pre-order on the Nokia site for £359, with colour options being  black, black or black, with no definite release date as yet announced.

We’ve always rather liked the no-nonsense lines of the Nokia E series, and the specs aren’t too shabby either, with the handset sporting a 5MP camera (with LED flash), a 3.5mm headphone jack and an optical trackpad for zipping through those important business messages at a whizzy pace.

There’s video on board (maxing out at VGA: 640 x 480 at 15fps) with 10x digital zoom, although we wouldn’t get your hopes up too high about the quality of images at the far end of that digi-zoom.

Nokia E72 ready for pre-order in the UKWe’re a little disappointed by the rather diminutive 320 x 240 pixels (QVGA) screen, although the onboard Bluetooth, A-GPS with compass, FM Radio, Wi-Fi and voice commands mopped our fretting brows a tad.

The E72 measures up at a highly pocketable 14 x 58.3 x 10.1 mm with its 128g weight unlikely to cause too much serious saggage in the pocket area.<

Talk time from the 1500 mAh Li-Ion standard battery is listed as a hefty 12 .5 hours on GSM with standby an impressive 492 hours.

Overall, we think this is a great, fully featured business phone with enough multimedia widgets to ensure it’ll get taken out at the weekend too.
