After "leaking" a promotional video over the weekend Nokia have officially unveiled the E72 - their new QWERTY smartphone followup to the fantastic E71- at the Connection 09 event in Singapore.


Compared to its none-too-old brother, the E72 will see its camera bumped up to 5 megapixels along with the addition of an integrated compass, an optical navigation key (not unlike the BlackBerry Gemini's) and sensibly a 3.5mm headphone jack. Nokia say the S60 handset features a "desktop like email experience" and will begin shipping third quarter of 2009 for $485 without contract.


Also revealed was the 5530 XpressMusic - essentially a smaller, cheaper 5800 - featuring a 2.9 inch widescreen display, 3.2 megapixel camera with LED flash and a 4GB memory card. The GSM/EDGE phone doesn't use 3G but can at least connect via wifi; it will also be available third quarter of 2009 for around $275 unsubsidized. [Nokia]
