Thurs - Nokia to launch three new smartphones

Nokia is going aggressively after the business sector, starting the beginning of next year, as they launch three new smartphones.

The new phones, dubbed the E60, E61 and E70, will be available in the first quarter next year and are expected to sell for between $420 and $540. They will compliment the Nokia Communicator series that has sold over 1M units in the last year.

The phones will all have push email, able to access RIM's service, Nokias new email service and others. Some come with fold out key boards able to compete better with the Blackberry device.

They will be able to access GSM, 3G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth networks. Nokia believes that there is huge potential in coporate smartphones and handheld devices, with corporate mobile email as the killer application. Today only 8M corporate mail boxes are accessible by mobile devices out of a total of 650M corporate email users.
