The Nokia E75 is a messaging smartphone with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Designed for people who want a full-sized keypad as found on the E90, but who don't want to carry around a brick, the E75 could be thought of as the spiritual successor to the old Nokia 9300i.

One immediately obvious compromise here is the size of the screen, which is a fairly standard 2.4" 240 x 320 pixel panel. The E90 has a massive 800 pixel wide display, and this really makes a difference when web browsing, but really the key target audience for the E75 is email users.

 Nokia E75 Nokia have added a number of features to the E75 to enable it to access all types of email. The E75 supports several different types of consumer email accounts for hassle-free setup, plus support for Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Notes and Nokia Messaging. Of course, the E75 also supports standard internet protocols such as POP3 and IMAP, and it can also access corporate VPNs. Enterprise users will also appreciate the device and memory card encryption which should help to prevent data breaches.

It's not all work though, the Nokia E75 allows two customisable home screens, one for business and one for personal use. There's a media player, FM radio, a standard 3.5mm audio socket and Ovi integration for file sharing. On the back is a fairly standard 3.2 megapixel camera capable of VGA resolution video recording.

The E75 comes with GPS and Nokia Maps preloaded onto the supplied memory card, it should also work with Google Maps if you prefer.

This is a quad-band GSM phone with tri-band UMTS / WCDMA support (depending on region). The Nokia E75 also has WiFi, stereo Bluetooth, USB 2.0 connectivity and microSD expandable memory. At 139 grams, the E75 is still a little on the heavy side, but it is 71 grams lighter than the E90.

This is a phone that you will either see a need for, or you won't. But it will probably appeal to people who do a lot of messaging and find smaller keyboards too fiddly.

Nokia say that the E75 should be available during Q1 2009 in black, red and copper colour combinations at a price of around €375 before tax and subsidy.
