SINGAPORE – Nokia unveiled its latest additions to its already impressive summer line-up of mobile devices at the ongoing Nokia Connection 2009, an annual Nokia conference being held in Singapore.

While the Nokia 5530 was unveiled in an online contest titled “Pass the Parcel”; the other two devices, Nokia E72 and Nokia 3710 were announced at the conference yesterday.

The Nokia E72 is an update to Nokia’s highly-succesful Eseries QWERTY  model, E71, with updates in both hardware and software departments. The Nokia 5530 follows the lines of another successful Nokia phone under the XpressMusic branding, 5800, with its touchscreen and S60 5th-edition OS. Lastly, the Nokia 3710 is targeted at the fashion conscious consumer with its unique blend of eye-catching design and mobile functionality.

With the E72, Nokia is sticking to the same form factor and specification of its predecessor, E71, and adds new features, such as  the 3.5 mm audiovisual jack, a 5 megapixel camera, HSUPA (up to 2mbps) and faster HSDPA (Up to 10mbps), two triband  UMTS versions (850/1900/2100 Mhz and 900/1900/2100 Mhz), along with an optical navigation key, electronic compass for an enhanced GPS navigation experience, and in the software department, the E72 comes pre-loaded with the latest version of Quickoffice with support for Microsoft Office 2007, one touch configuration for several IM clients (Yahoo, Gmail, Windows Live, Ovi, etc.), and onboard clients for Mail for Exchange and IBM Lotus Notes Traveler.

Some of the features passed on from the E71 are the 2.4″ screen with QVGA resolution, the microSD memory card slot, FM radio, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, A-GPS, quadband GSM, and USB connectivity. At 114 x 58 x 10 mm dimensions, the E72 retains the same thickness as its predecessor, even with the added features.

Priced at €350 (before taxes and subsidies), the Nokia E72 will start shipping in third quarter of 2009.
