The latest Nokia E72 is yet another BlackBerry-style device from the handset manufacturing giant and it seems that Nokia wants to keep milking the growing demand for such smart-devices in the market. The E72 is a follow up on the E71which was released last year and it comes with few upgradaes like enhanced software and an improved camera. This one comes with a 2.36 inches TFT screen of 320 x 240 pixels resolution along with a full QWERTY keypad. The keypad appears to be good with distinct keys and should aid texting messages and mails. The phone integrates with email clients and business systems such as Microsoft Exchange apart from mailing applications like Hotmail and Gmail. Messages can be sent and received in the form of SMS, MMS, Email and IM. Also included are an optical trackpad and an accelerometer sensor that facilitates UI auto-rotate.

The Nokia E72 is a Symbian S60 device and it runs on a 600 MHz processor from ARM that ensures high speed and response time. Apart from the 128MB RAM, the device incorporates an internal memory of 250MB storage which can be easily expanded to 16GB by using external microSD cards. The phone-book in this handset can store unlimited contact entries and fields and also keeps records for dialed, received as well as missed calls for an entire month. This Class32 GPRS device comes along with a built-in WAP 2.0 / xHTML, HTML web browser that allows the users to access mobile Internet. Wi-Fi allows the device to access any local area network or to synchronize with a laptop or a PC, while Bluetooth assists in convenient data sharing between compatible devices.

Most interestingly, the Nokia E72 also includes a 5 mega pixel camera with a resolution of 2592 x 1944 pixels and features like auto-focus and LED flash. The music player which can cope with MP3, WMA, WAV, RA, AAC and M4A file formats turns out to be really versatile. The music can be restored either in the speaker-phone or on any standard headphone which can be plugged in the propitious 3.5 mm audio jack. The video player on the other hand can play WMV, RV, MP4 and 3GP. And the entertainment does not stop there-a stereo FM radio with RDS feature is also included so that users get to listen to their favorite radio stations.

On the inside, the Nokia N72 is just a quad-band GSM phone that also supports tri-band 3G network. 3G enables high speed data download through HSDPA at the rate of 10.2Mbps. Released in October, 2009, this handset is currently available in interesting color schemes of Zodiac Black, Metal Gray and Topaz Brown. Other important and useful features that have been added in this ensemble include Digital compass, Document editor (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF), Flash Lite v3.0, Push to talk, Voice command / dial, Organizer and Nokia Maps 3.0 application. The standard Li-Po 1500 mAh battery turns out to be really efficient with a talk time of 6 hours and a standby time of up to 576 hours while using the device in 3G service. Considering the fact that the previous E-Series models- E71 and E63 have gone down pretty well with the people, we can only expect that the E72 does good business.
