Nokia E52 comes out to play with big, fat battery life


The business focused Nokia E51 may not have set the world on fire but it’s a damn solid handset, and the fine Fins obviously know so which is why today they’ve announced its successor, the Nokia E52.

The screen sizes has gone up a touch to give a 2.4″ QVGA with 16 million colours and the camera is now a much more consumer friendly 3.2-megapixel shooter complete with flash, but it’s the battery life where the E52 really excels itself. It’ll last you eight hours of talk time and a whole 28 days of standby on a single charge. Seriously impressive stuff.

It measures 116 x 49 x 9.9mm, weighs a solid but portable 98g and comes equipped with both GPS and A-GPS for back up. Naturally, it supports Wi-Fi, 3G and Bluetooth including A2DP for your music streaming. It charges by USB, gives you access to the world via the Ovi store, supports IMAP and POP3 push e-mail and has all kinds of data security for the paranoid amongst us.

Essentially, this handset does everything you could want apart from have a touchscreen and look sexy but then it’s not trying to and I don’t see why it should. It comes in some kind of gold, some kind of silver and some kind of black. No word when its available but I’ll let you know as soon as I do.
