Today Nokia announced the latest addition to their business mobile phone lineup. True to its Eseries nature, the Nokia E52 sports a decent feature set, extensive connectivity and a classic metallic design.
Nokia E52 is basically a copy of the Nokia E55, save for the QW-ER-TY keyboard. It brings 3G with HSDPA 10.2 Mbps and HSUPA 2Mbps support. The other major features of the Nokia E52 include a 2.4” display, GPS and Wi-Fi. An accelerometer sensor for automatic screen rotation, a digital compass and a 3 megapixel full focus camera are also on board.
The 8 hours of talk time and 23 days of standby are the other assets of the E52. Those numbers are just about the same as on the Nokia E55 and twice as good as its predecessor – the E51.
The Nokia E52 will ship with a 1GB microSD card and a free 60 day trial for Files on Ovi. It’ll become available in the second half of the year at an estimated retail price of ?245, before taxes or subsidies. That is about 20 euro less than the Nokia E55 to compensate for the missing QW-ER-TY which might be a good trade-off for some users.
