Nokia E61 – BlackBerry Replacement?

May 4th, 2006

Nokia started shipping the business oriented E61 phone, an WCDMA/EDGE E-mail optimized smartphone with uncompromised voice functionality. According to Nokia’s website:

Nokia email device e-61

It offers multiple e-mail solutions with rich attachment content support combined with extensive range of connectivity methods and familiar Nokia voice UI, gives mobile professionals a competitive edge.

The E-61 has a full keyboard, which has been a must-have for business users on the road. It runs on Symbian OS v9.1, (a Series 60, 3rd edition phone, in developer’s terms), and supports all the good J2ME stuff, such as Mobile Media API (JSR-135), Web Services API (JSR-172), FileConnection and PIM API (JSR-75), Mobile 3D Graphics API (JSR-184), SIP API (JSR-180) etc.

This could be a serious competition to BlackBerry if Nokia can gets the wireless email experience right.
