And you thought the Nokia E71 and Nokia E66 were the end of the road for the business-class smartphones from Espoo. Of course Nokia is working on additional Eseries smartphones to add to their business-oriented portfolio.
Following on the Nokia E71′s QWERTY candybar form-factor and the Nokia E66′s vertical sliding design, Nokia is apparently working on a new Eseries hybrid-slider that combines the E66′s slider form-factor with the E71′s full QWERTY keyboard.
We previously saw the Nokia E75 gallivanting around the various interwebs in a leaked Nokia Eseries commercial, and it seems that some good, old-fashioned camera-time was in order. The Nokia E75 pictured here shows a glossy, stylized handset with a full numeric keypad adorning the front-face of the device. Unfortunately, we don’t get a clear shot at the QWERTY keyboard that’s rumored to lie beneath the slide-out display.
Details on the Nokia E75 are otherwise slim at the moment, but that doesn’t mean we won’t be hearing more about the Nokia E75 in coming weeks. We’re expecting the Nokia E75 to take design cues from both the Nokia E71 and Nokia E66 – which goes to say that the Nokia E75 should be one slick looking device. And, if Espoo can manage to keep their Nokia E75 nice and svelte, HTC should have some S60-based competition for their Windows Mobile 6.1-powered HTC S740 hybrid slider.
