I personally think that a phone can’t really be considered a business phone unless it boasts a QWERTY keyboard of some kind, but that hasn’t stopped a certain Finnish handset maker from going against the grain in that respect. The Nokia E51 looks like a rather normal candybar-style mobile phone, but Nokia is quick to remind us that this handset is targeted at business professionals.
Flanking the main five-way navigator are a series of quick access keys which will immediately launch the email, contacts, and calendar applications, as well as giving you an easy way to return to the home screen. The wizard interface is supposed to be a piece of cake as well when you want to configure your mobile email. Perhaps more interestingly, there’s a VoIP app called Gizmo that lets you do the Internet telephony dance.
Rounding out the specs are a stainless steel housing, standard numeric keypad, FM radio, 2 megapixel camera, EDGE, HSDPA, WiFi, and the Nokia browser. Look for the Nokia E51 business phone to launch in Q4 for an unsubsidized price of 350 Euros.
