Nokia's latest white knight
GLOBAL - The Nokia E72 has had a lick of paint and is now available in white. Joining the chalky line-up with the Nokia N97 and Nokia X6, to name a couple, the E72 is the latest handset to go blanche. Join us after the jump for a closer look and we’ve also got news of a new firmware update for all Nokia E72 handsets.
Sashaying into view today the white Nokia E72 doesn’t come alone. In the box there’s a treasure trove of accessories including an equally pristine Nokia BH-216 bluetooth headset and Nokia C-313 jeweller. The phone will also be dressed in white on the inside, with an exclusive white theme and a personalised homescreen.
It may have turned white but the new-look Nokia E72 certainly hasn’t lost any of its talents. Made with the fashion conscious in mind you’ll look the business as well as get on with some. The E72 comes in a blazer-friendly 10mm slim shell and includes one-touch access to calendar, contacts, and (push) email. Instant messaging options include Ovi, Google Talk and Yahoo! Messenger. Other notable features include a 5-megapixel sensor, integrated AGPS and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The brand spanking new white Nokia E72 has also had a boost with a software update. The update includes an upgrade to latest version of Ovi Maps with free walk and drive navigation, improved social networking with the ability to share your location on Facebook with your friends and the ability to check the weather where you are and where you’re headed. There’s also general stability and performance improvements to Email, Calendar, Contacts and Browser. Plus internet radio has been bundled into the update along with free Lonely Planet and Michelin guides.
The new update is available to all Nokia E72 handsets through Nokia Software Updater.
