Nokia teases new QWERTY phone (but don’t expect a keyboard Lumia)

Nokia teases new QWERTY phone (but don’t expect a keyboard Lumia)

Nokia has teased a new QWERTY device, using the company's current primary-color scheme, though the phone seems unlikely to be the much-anticipated keyboard-equipped Lumia Windows Phone. Only a tiny glimpse of the handset - which will be officially revealed on Wednesday - has been shown so far, but Nokia has said that Mobile Phones technology marketing director Neil Broadley will be manning the Q&A session, implying that we're looking at a new Asha device, not a true smartphone.

Nokia E6 Review

Nokia E6 Review

BlackBerry may be the name associated with QWERTY messaging phones, but there's a vocal cadre of Nokia users all too keen to talk about the merits of the Finnish company's keyboard-blessed candybars. The E72 met with mixed reactions, failing to quite capture affection the way its E71 predecessor did; now we have the E6 (aka Nokia E6-00), pairing keyboard and touchscreen and offering a taste of the latest Symbian flavor, Anna. Is the E6 enough to distract us from the rapid approach of Nokia's first Windows Phones? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Nokia X7 and E6 now shipping with Symbian Anna

Nokia's first two Symbian "Anna" handsets, running the updated version of the Symbian OS, are now shipping. The Nokia E6 and Nokia X7, announced in April, will each get the new, faster browser, a native portrait-orientation QWERTY keyboard, and a boosted version of Ovi Maps with public transport routes among other tweaks. Meanwhile, the Nokia N8, E7, C7 and C6 will get an Anna update "in the coming months."

Nokia Windows Phones detailed: X7-based W7, 12MP N8 variant, more

Nokia Windows Phones detailed: X7-based W7, 12MP N8 variant, more

Nokia's Windows Phone ambitions have been prematurely previewed, with rumored details of four handsets supposedly in development being leaked. The company has apparently bypassed the so-called "chassis 1" format - the tightly spec-constrained handsets we've seen so-far - and, according to Mobile-review, dived straight into developing "chassis 2" prototypes which will allow Nokia greater flexibility in the design and components it can use. The initial four designs reportedly consist of X7 and N8 variants running Windows Phone, along with a QWERTY touchscreen candybar device similar to the E6 and a "cheap" all-touch device for the entry-level price point.

Nokia E6 hands-on [Video]

Nokia E6 hands-on [Video]

Nokia has set itself quite the challenge with the E6, taking on the legacy of much-loved QWERTY smartphones like the E71 and E72. First impressions, though, are very positive. The 326ppi touchscreen is pixel-dense and responsive, neatly positioned to be stabbed with a thumb when holding the E6 in one hand. Meanwhile the physical keyboard delivers all the tactile feedback you'd hope for.

Nokia E6-00 leaks in full: Video, Specs, More

Nokia E6-00 leaks in full: Video, Specs, More

We've been gradually building a picture of the Nokia E6-00 over the past few months, but the unannounced Symbian smartphone has just seen its biggest leak to-date. A prototype has apparently found its way to the NokioTeca forums and been thoroughly snapped, tested and detailed. On the confirmed list, a VGA resolution capacitive touchscreen, paired with a physical keyboard, and an 8-megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording.

Nokia E6-00 leaks: Refreshed Symbian on QWERTY/touch candybar

Nokia E6-00 leaks: Refreshed Symbian on QWERTY/touch candybar

Nokia's E6-00 smartphone has leaked, the apparent successor to the Nokia E72. The QWERTY device runs Symbian^3, but unlike its predecessors has a touchscreen display for easier use. It will also run the updated version of Symbian, complete with four homescreens - rather than the three panes we've seen on the N8, C7 and E7 - and more flexible widgets.

Otherwise we're expecting a 640 x 480 screen - higher than Nokia's usual nHD 640 x 360 panels - together with WCDMA/HSPA and WiFi connectivity, Bluetooth 2.0, and GSM/GPRS/EDGE. There's also talk of an 8-megapixel autofocus camera complete with an LED flash, but we're yet to see the rear of the E6-00 to know for sure.
