Nokia E71 available for pre-order


Nokia is set to launch the new E71 smartphone handset in the UK.

The handset, which Nokia claims is the thinnest QWERTY device on the market, is available for pre-order through the Nokia online store SIM free for £330 including VAT.

The device will also be sold on contract through Orange, Vodafone and 3. The price of the handset will vary with network packages.

Features include Wi-Fi, HSDPA and 3G connection speeds, push email, GPS and Microsoft Echange. It has two optional home screens designed for work and personal usage.  

It also offers full enterprise grade functionality, allowing confidential information on both memory card and device storage to be cleared in the event of it being lost or stolen.

The handset is made from stainless steel, with etched detailing on the back of the device to allow better grip. It is boxed with a USB cable, headphones and 2GB SD memory card.

A Nokia spokeperson said" "We haven’t got an exact UK release date, but it is expected to launch in stores in the next couple of months."
