Nov 16, 2009

Nokia E72, a device tailor-made for business and personal messaging is now available in stores.

Moreover, the latest version of Ovi Maps with A-GPS navigation and compass, an optical navi key and 5 megapixel camera are all packed into the sleek, beautifully-designed handset.

The Nokia E72 also comes with Nokia’s push consumer email service, Nokia Messaging, and now for the first time people can set up instant messaging (IM) directly from the homescreen, accessing communities such as Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo! Messenger, Google Talk and Ovi Chat. Just like chatting via the desktop, people can respond to friends and colleagues across multiple communities in real-time.

The Nokia E72 can also accommodate multiple work and personal email accounts and, with separate profiles for work and play, allows people to be flexible when it comes to choosing how, when, where and who to respond to.

To coincide with the arrival of the Nokia E72, Nokia has also released the results of it’s research conducted by ICM among 7,826 people in seven countries in July 2009. The research reveals that more people rely on email than on traditional phone calls or text messaging when sending and responding to critical information. Countries where research was conducted: UK, Russia, Spain, South Africa, UAE, Singapore and Italy.

Speaking about the research results, Nokia vice president Ukko Lappalainen said, “The research shows that people are spending an average of five full days per year – equivalent to a full work week – responding to emails. Half of us (46 percent) choose email over voice or text to send and receive important information. The Nokia E72 was designed exactly with this kind of person in mind – it allows the owner to be more responsive and communicate how they want, whenever they want and wherever they are.”
