Nokia E6 up on Amazon for pre-order, I bought mine on ebay
I currently have the Nokia Astound, Nokia E7, and Nokia N8, not to mention other devices like the Nokia E73 Mode and Nokia N97 Mini. I cannot find my Nokia N900 So then, why in the world am I considering pre-ordering a Nokia E6 from Amazon for $446?
The Eseries with front facing QWERTY was always one of my favorite form factors that I found extremely useful and functional. Nokia provided some optimal calendar and messaging experiences with the Eseries and they were all built like tanks. The Nokia E6 has that same wonderful form factor with the addition of a touchscreen and Symbian Anna OS. Here are some other key specifications that look to make this the best front facing Eseries device ever:
- Quad-band GSM and penta-band 3G (Thank you Nokia!)
- Symbian Anna OS
- 8GB internal memory and microSD card slot for up to 32GB more
- 8 megapixel camera with dual LED flash and 720p video capture
- Front facing VGA camera
- 2.46 inch 640×480 pixels touchscreen display (That’s 326 ppi which is the same as the iPhone 4 retina display.)
- Dedicated graphics processor with OpenGL 2.0 support
- BP-4L 1500 mAh battery
- WiFi (802.11 b/g/n)
- Bluetooth 3.0
- FM radio with RDS
- USB on-the-to support
- 3.5mm headset jack with TV-out support
- Both microUSB and 2mm charging ports
My only real complaint with the last front facing QWERTY Eseries I tested, the Nokia E73 Mode, was the lower resolution display and this E6 fixes that with specs that sound fantastic for such a small display.
I went ahead and purchased one from Star Telecom Mobile on eBay since the tax alone for me to buy from Amazon was nearly $50 over the purchase price and they have the E6 available NOW! Stay tuned for E6 coverage here on Nokia Experts since the E6 should arrive next week.
