The users of Nokia mobile phones know that E-series has been one of the most successful product line for Nokia. Now, the E-series enlarged its “members’ number” with a slim and sleek mobile phone with an unlikely QWERTY keyboard. To be precise, the new Nokia E55, which was designed for business, does not have an actual QWERTY keyboard but a one like it on num-pad.
The smartphone is capable of remotely managing files stored on your pc even if your pc is switched off. And it’s not just a dry business oriented phone. It comes with a great gaming experience, Nokia N-Gage on board.
Moreover, Nokia E55 has even a real 3.5mm headphone port for those down moments and its biggest strength is that it can provide a stand by battery time of up to 28 days thanks to an impressive 1500mAh unit. That’s more than enough. It is also assisted with Nokia Maps and GPS. Boasting HSDPA/HSUPA and WiFi for faster connectivity and measuring 116.5mm x 49mm x 9.9mm (4.6in x 1.9in x .4in) with an acceptable weight of 95g (3.4oz), Nokia E55 is a nice alternative to a Blackberry device and will likely appeal to those who are used to Nokias and want a messaging phone for business use. The built-in messaging support, as well as Nokia’s Mail for Exchange service with PIM synchronization for contacts and calendars should be a hit with business users. And if you’re a businessperson, you also get Nokia’s ‘Files on Ovi’ application that allows you to access files on your computer (both PC and Mac), a dictionary, a copy of Quickoffice that allows you to view and create documents, and a file zipping app. Adobe Reader LE 1.5 is included, too, for viewing PDFs, and Psiloc Wireless Presenter is there to help you control Powerpoint presentations from your phone, as well.
Furthermore, the E55 comes with 100MB of internal memory and with a massive 2GB microSD memory card. The camera is of 3.2 megapixel (2048×1536 pixels) with 4 x digital zoom and flash for taking picture in a room with lack of lights. For video recording, it captures at 15fps which is a reasonable numbers.
In terms of entertainment, this phone also comes with Realplayer Media Player and also FM Radio, which is very useful as you can listen to radio/music while “on the move” – all via the 3.5mm audio jack which is a bonus as it’s the most commonly used audio jack size. You can also listen to music via its music player, supporting AAC, AAC+, eAAC+, MP3, AMR-NB and WMA. And you can also watch videos via many supported video formats, which are mp4, AVC/H.264, wmv, RV, Flash video and H.263/3GPP.
