Messaging:

Now, we have just made it to perhaps the most important feature of the Nokia E75 – messaging. Aside from the standard SMS and MMS functionality that bring nothing new to the table, email communication has acquired a brand new interface, thanks to Nokia Messaging. The Nokia E75 is the first model of the manufacturer to come with this application preloaded. It can be easily downloaded to other devices as well (see a list of supported cell phones and get the app from here).



What new features does Nokia Messaging offer? If you happen to use any of the popular email providers, say Gmail or Yahoo!, all you need to do is punch in your username and password and device finds all relevant settings itself. When had to manually enter additional settings to get our office emails up and running, unlike on RIM devices. Still, the application offers some real functionality improvements. The interface is friendly and simple at the same time, so there is nothing to get you troubled or scared. We do like certain functions, like switching between email accounts (up to ten so far) directly from the application itself, the sorting options by sender, subject, priority, read status, attached files or size. They make the usage of several email accounts and piles of emails way faster and more comfortable to handle. You also have nicely implemented searches and not last you can read HTML emails, where enclosed pictures are a click away. Well, it doesn´t exactly feel like working on your computer, but all these enhancements allow improved efficiency in dealing with such communication. Moreover, Nokia Messaging offers push email functionality, although whether or not it works lies entirely with your carrier. Push email services are still unavailable anywhere in the world (information correct on date of first publication).



All told, Nokia Messaging leaves us with a positive impression and if your cell phone is on the supported device list, we highly recommend that you download and install the application right away.


Internet and GPS:

You have the standard Symbian S60 browser to surf the Internet and the app is great indeed. All pages and flash content, including the large ones, are visualized properly. The minimap function comes in pretty handy. It is displayed automatically during extended scrolling and if the page is large, you can also turn on Page Overview to navigate more easily. In case you need to read the latest information on a website and it supports RSS broadcasting, you set that up in two quick steps.



As we already mentioned, the Nokia E75 has got a built-in GPS. It didn´t disappoint us and performed pretty well. Cold start with no internet connection took about 9 minutes in cloudy weather, while hot start proved to be instantaneous. When we allowed data transfer, localizing fell to less than a minute on cold start and the second restart happened in a snap again. Moreover, the phone comes with preloaded Nokia Maps and three month free of charge voice navigation for the region, where the device has been purchased. We have already taken an all round view of the App and since it doesn´t sport any new features, we are not going to thresh out the issue further.
