Nokia today unveiled its latest E series smartphone in Australia — the Nokia E75 — and also launched a new e-mail service called Nokia Messaging.

Nokia Messaging is an e-mail application that allows up to 10 e-mail accounts to be used on a single mobile device. The company claims the service will offer a richer mobile e-mail experience than was previously available on Nokia devices and has been designed to support both mobile e-mail and instant messaging.

The service supports both personal and corporate e-mail. "We want to drive e-mail solutions to consumers by making it easy to use", said Emile Baak of Nokia Australia. "The three-step approach to setting up your personal e-mail means every consumer can do it in just a couple of minutes."

To set up personal e-mail accounts using the Nokia Messaging service, users simply enter their e-mail account and password details, with Nokia claiming the mobile e-mail solution is "as easy and accessible as SMS".

The infrastructure behind Nokia Messaging is a Nokia server that connects major ISPs both globally and locally. The price of the service will be bundled with data plans, though Nokia is "still liaising" with carriers to offer data plans that incorporate Nokia Messaging access.

For corporate e-mail, the Nokia Messaging service supports Mail for Exchange (Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync) and IBM Lotus Traveler. The upgraded user interface supports folder and HTML e-mail support, expandable views and sorting.

Nokia Messaging will be bundled with the new E75 smartphone. The Nokia E75 is an e-mail-centric smartphone that boasts dual keyboards — a regular keypad and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.

The Nokia E75 also boasts aGPS and a standard 3.5mm headphone jack for multimedia playback. It is the first E Series phone to support nGage, Nokia's mobile gaming platform. Nokia claims the E75 offers up to 25 hours of music playback from a full battery charge.

All S60 Symbian Nokia devices will support the Nokia Messaging service, and support for a range of Series 40 devices will come "later in the year". People with an existing Nokia S60 device can register for a beta trial of the service at email.nokia.com and download the Nokia Messaging client. The download is free until July when the service is released commercially.

The Nokia Messaging service will be supported by all Australian telcos — Optus, Telstra, Vodafone, 3 Mobile and Virgin Mobile. The Nokia E75 smartphone has an RRP of $979 and will be available from 6 May.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
