Nokia announced the latest addition to its Eseries range, the Nokia E63. Building on the success of the Nokia E71, the Nokia E63 brings the QWERTY keyboard form factor to a broader audience at a great price.
“Our research shows that people want a device that deals with both their personal and professional lives, but helps them to separate the two. When someone sits down at lunch, they want to update their social network or browse their personal email account and they don’t want work getting in the way of that. It’s another great case of technology adapting to the people that use it,” says Soren Petersen, Senior Vice President, Nokia. “The Nokia E63 is a new proposition for Eseries – a messaging device where people will be just as involved in their social network as they are in their business network.”
Whilst appealing to a new group of consumers with a design that feels great in the hand and has two new colors, the Nokia E63 is still very much a member of the Eseries family. Petersen continues, “People use Eseries to access their corporate mail, review their calendar and work in their business network, so the Nokia E63 still includes Wi-Fi connectivity, easy access to Mail for Exchange and dedicated key access to contacts, calendar and email.”
The Nokia E63 operates in EGSM 850/900/1800/1900 MHz, and WCDMA 900/2100 MHz frequency. It has 113 x 59 x 13 mm, and it weights 126 g. Its 2.36″ display has 320 x 240 pixels resolution (QVGA), with 16 million colors.
The phone features microSD memory card slot, hot swappable, max. 8 GB, and 110 MB internal dynamic memory. The data can be encrypted for both phone memory and microSD content.
The Nokia E63 supports HTML, XHTML, MP, WML,CSS languages, and HTTP, WAP2.0 protocols. It also supports TCP/IP support. The phone features Nokia browser, Nokia Mobile Search, and Nokia Maps application.
The keyboard has dedicated one-touch keys: home, calendar, contacts, and email; intelligent input with auto-completion, auto-correction and learning capability; and accelerated scrolling with NaviKey. The Nokia E63 has the ability to switch modes with a single key press, switching from a view of corporate mail, appointments and intranet data, to a personal mode with a picture of friends, personal email and shortcuts to favorite hobby blogs or websites.
The new phone has a 2.0 megapixel camera (1600 x 1200 pixels) for pictures and video. The customers can record clips at 320 x 240 (QVGA) at 15 fps. The clip length is maximum one hour. Video recording file formats are .mp4 and .3gp; and the codecs are H.263 and MPEG-4 VSP. Record and view images and videos with the digital camera and bright landscape display, listen to music downloaded from the Nokia Music Store, or a number of other sources, via the standard 3,5 mm audio jack or customize the device through the thousands of applications available for download.
The Nokia E63 includes Files on Ovi, a service where people can get remote access to their PC files even when their computer is offline. Anyone buying the handset will have access to 1GB of online file storage for free.
