Nokia Ships E72 Smartphone For Symbian S60 Loyalists
This phone builds on the similar E71, maintaining the same basic form factor but adding new functionality such as desktop-like email and chat experiences. Morevoer, the latest version of Ovi Maps with A-GPS navigation and compass, an optical navi key and 5 megapixel camera are all packed into the phone. You'll also find push consumer email service, Nokia Messaging, and now for the first time people can set up instant messaging (IM) directly from the homescreen, accessing communities such as Windows Live(TM) Messenger, Yahoo! Messenger, Google Talk and Ovi Chat. Just like chatting via the desktop, people can respond to friends and colleagues across multiple communities in real-time.
Amazon has the phone listed at $469 without a contract, though Nokia's official announcement doesn't mention a specific price point.
