As expected from a business handset, the full QWERTY keyboard is targeted at consumers who want push-email, and Microsoft Exchange compatibility. Encased in a metallic shell, it has HSDPA connectivity, plus A-GPS and Nokia Maps. A surprising 3.1-megapixel camera with autofocus is also included, as are a media player and expandable memory of up to 8GB. Shipping early July, the E71 will cost 350€ excluding tax.
