Nokia E61
The E61 is the first QWERTY business smartphone from Nokia, and has been touted as the Blackberry killer. It's optimised for e-mail, and has special features for e-mail such as an Inbox shortcut key, an indicator for incoming mail, and so on. With the E61, Nokia has departed from their notebook designs to an elegant, executive one.

The brilliant 320 x 240 active matrix display lends the phone a Palm-ish feel. Its  screen supports 16 million colours. There is the 75 MB of onboard memory, which can be expanded via the miniSD card slot. Expect Nokia to bundle at least a 64 MB card with the phone-that's a goodish bit of memory for a business phone!

The phone not only supports quad-band, but is also WCDMA-enabled-and so can be used anywhere in the world.

The Nokia E61 comes with attachment viewers and editors for features of MS Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Then there's MS Outlook contacts and calendar. It also supports Adobe Reader and Zip manager, as well as several third-party e-mail clients including Blackberry Connect.

The phone plays MP3 and AAC, and can stream 3GPP and RealMedia content. The connectivity spectrum spans Bluetooth, Pop-Port and IR. There's no camera inbuilt, but this can be a virtue since many corporate offices ban the use of camera phones.
