Earlier today I attended the Nokia E75 launch, held at the Skin Sense Day Spa in Rivonia. As you might know I’m no corporate so phones in that range don’t interest me.

I got to play with the phone for a short while and if first impressions are anything to go by, I wouldn’t mind owning this handset. What I like about is that it’s light (much lighter than my N85) even though it has a slide out keyboard. It’s slim, sleek and well, stylish, especially in the deep red colour that it’s also available in. So it gets full marks in the ‘looks’ category but I can’t vouch for battery life etc.

Some plus points:

  • supports mobile VPN
  • Nokia Messaging – you only need your username & password (supports Gmail, Windows Live, Yahoo! [remind me again who uses Yahoo!], AOL).
  • customizeable home screen views for business and personal. So when you get home, flip screens and no work mail coming in.
  • data encryption for phone memory and microSD card

Even though I don’t mind owning this device, I’d still pick the N97 over this 😉

    Great phone hey! I just hope that the networks don’t overprice this phone like they have with most other smartphones.

    It should be available on a business contract, and they’re not cheap.

    I like the slide out keyboard even though it adds a little bulk to the phone. It looks a lot easier to type on. I’m happy to stick with my E71 in the meantime and look forward to the N97’s arrival in the near future.
