Nokia E62 Details Revealed

Just last week we told you about how the FCC had finally approved Nokia's E61, a.k.a. The Blackberry/Treo Killer, for sale to the US market. If you've already put it on your list of must-buy gadgets, you might want to check out Nokia's E62 which is basically a tweaked version of the E61. If neither one's on your list yet, perhaps this partial list of specs will prod you:

  • runs on Symbian 9.1 and S60 3.0
  • both GPRS and EDGE for data
  • GSM bands 850/1900
  • Bluetooth 1.2
  • screen is 240x320, 256,000 colors, TFT
  • miniUSB instead of Nokia's usual PopPort
  • Push email (like the Blackberry)
  • USB Mass Storage Mode, so you can mount your phone as a hard drive
  • QuickOffice for viewing/editing Word/Excel/Powerpoint
  • Screen Export feature lets you run Powerpoint presentations off the E62 with compatible projectors
  • Positioning and Navigation apps that work with Bluetooth GPS devices

Lots of other nice features but sadly the E62 is missing the E61's support for 3G and WiFi. Anyone know why that is? Did Nokia cut an exclusive deal with a provider that made them take it out? 3G/WiFi-less aside, it's still a solid business phone with a great UI and should still do well when it launches.
