Nokia Announces E6 Touchscreen Smartphone

The Nokia E6 that we have been seeing in leaked pictures so far has become official. The E6 is a business phone based on the successful E71 smartphone but with some new tricks up its sleeve. For starters, there is a 2.46-inch touchscreen display with VGA resolution, which gives it incredible pixel density of 325 ppi, the same as the iPhone 4's Retina display. The phone boasts of a long battery life and Microsoft's messaging experience out-of-the-box.  

The phone comes loaded with productivity and social networking applications as well as Nokia's free Ovi Maps navigation. The E6 has an 8 megapixel camera with dual LED flash that can record videos in 720p resolution. The phone has expandable memory with 8GB built-in. The phone will go on sale for approximately Rs. 22,000 later this quarter.

The E6 will be running the newer version of Symbian OS, nicknamed Anna. It features new icons, faster web browser and a portrait QWERTY keypad (not available on the E6). This new OS will be available on the N8, E7, C7 and C6 soon.
