Nokia has launched a new family of devices - Nokia E60, Nokia E61 and Nokia E70, aimed at the business user. All three will be available in the first quarter of 2006 worldwide. They are all built on the latest edition of the Series 60 Platform, and include a variety of GSM frequencies and 3G (WCDMA) cellular network support for round-the-world seamless roaming. They also sport a range of local connectivity options such as WLAN, Bluetooth and Infrared, and there is also support for USB 2.0.
The Nokia E60, Nokia E61 and Nokia E70 also feature superior voice functionality and quality when compared to other devices that combine PDA-like features with a mobile phone. The devices support advanced voice services, such as Internet (Voice over IP) phone calls, Push to talk, and other SIP-based rich call services giving businesses a variety of ways to make it easier for employees to collaborate or respond rapidly in or out of the office. Companies deploying an Avaya or Cisco IP PBX can connect the new Nokia devices directly to their corporate phone networks over a WLAN or cellular network, enabling functions employees have come to expect from a corporate network like four-digit dialing and assisted call answering.
