Nokia launches two new smartphones in the U.S

Looks to gain U.S. market share with unlocked E72 model and 5800 Navigation Edition

Nokia today announced that its E72 and 5800 Navigation Edition smartphones are now available in the U.S.

Both are sold unlocked and buyers must acquire wireless service separately with GSM carriers such as AT&T and T-Mobile.

The E72 model sells for $US469 and the 5800 Navigation Edition smartphone for $299. Both are available at www.nokiausa.com and some independent retailers. The E72 is also available at Best Buy retail stores.

Nokia is by far the largest mobile phone and smartphone device maker in the world, but its U.S. market share significantly lags behind some competitors. Gartner Inc. said the Symbian operating system was used in nearly half the smartphones sold globally in 2009.

The E72 supports Mail for Exchange or IBM Lotus Notes Traveler and up to 10 e-mail accounts, and offers IM directly from the home screen.

It has a physical Qwerty keyboard and resembles some BlackBerry smartphones in size and shape with a 2.4 inch display. It measures 4.5 x 2.3 x .4 inches and weighs 4.5 ounces.

Instead of a roller ball for navigation, the E72 comes with a optical navigation key. It has a 5 megapixel camera and Ovi maps with assisted GPS navigation.

The 5800 Navigation Edition features real-time turn-by-turn navigation, touch screen input and a front-facing camera that can be used for video calls.

It measures 4.3 x 2 x .6 inches and weighs 3.8 ounces.

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.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
