Nokia E61i and E65 in US
Nokia on Monday said that it has started shipping the E61i and E65 (pictured) to the US, marking the first time the E-series smartphones are easily available in the country. Both bring customized software for getting work done and also for synchronizing the phones when put on a company network; nevertheless, both also pack 2-megapixel cameras, music and video playback, and microSD for storage. Either phone can also use Wi-Fi for connecting to the Internet when built-in EDGE support (and WCDMA for some areas) is impractical, the company says.
Differing primarily by their choice of a wider but keyboard-equipped design (E61i) or a slimmer, narrower slider (E65), the handsets should be available in the US today as unlocked devices at several online and reseller outlets, including PC vendors such as Gateway and Dell. The street price is estimated at $400.
