Nokia E6 surfaces in the wild

Nokia's business E series are one of the company's most successful products, but with the change of mobile landscape touchscreen devices have started to invade the business segment all the more. This puts a big question mark next to the Nokia E6…

i dont understand this biased view against non touch screen smart phones. some people prefer navigating using a d pad rather than needing to move your thumb or finger across the whole front surface of the phone to touch the area you want to control. using a d pad makes one handed use much easier. the best would be a d pad with a touch screen.

Pathetic, we already have E5 and C3 for this

They should introduce a 3.7" E7 with 5MP camera and qwerty as the E6 and it will be a win!!!

I suggest you read about the E7 specs first before posting comments/suggestions that make you look an ignoramus!

i like touch screens but they always die to quickly on me, i hope this phone supports T-
Mobiles 3G bands! i love the color of the phone and the 8 megapixel camera is a +.

Full QWETRY phones are still better non thouch screen, because that will make them huge. Or the buttons are really small, or a slider - which is way thiker. A compact messaging phone with a good camera can work. But pricing whould be adecuate.

P.S - Nokia I played with Symbian 3: Add more homescreens+overview mode, and for goodness sake: Add a portrait QWETRY keyboard! My old Omnia had one! After that Symbian 3 will start to handle much better. Goodluck.

one thing you all missed is that it has no soft-keys......

I agree with Libertasian, judging by the fact that it has no soft-keys, it'll probably be a touchscreen. If all the specs are true and if its a touch screen and if Nokia continues the premium build quality of business phones, this is sure to be a huge success!

If a good processor is put in this bad boy, and it has a big battery like the e71, and the screen resolution is better and it supports a bunch of 3g bands like the n8, then this is a definite buy for me. Nothing's better than these bad boys, unless you enjoy watching videos on your phone.
