Nokia announced today the arrival of the highly anticipated Nokia E7 in Singapore, adding on another star to Nokia’s portfolio of business smartphones.
Nokia’s business mobility strategy has rapidly evolved and broken new ground in recent years, anticipating the consumerisation of IT and the diverse needs of the business user. This is accomplished by developing solutions via partnerships with industry leaders, and working closely with leading operators in go-to-market tactics. This provides the Nokia user with peace of mind knowing that the solutions are fully tested, certified and delivered.
Fully committed to this vision of true business mobility, Nokia’s smartphone portfolio comprises best-in-class business-optimised smartphones (Nokia Eseries), and other smartphones for business users such as select Nokia Nseries smartphones. This is a step ahead in anticipating the growing needs of the business user who requires seamless business data access, interactive communication and engaging content, all at the same time.
The Nokia Eseries was designed to be powerful mobile offices, providing industry leading productivity solutions for professionals. With Mail for Exchange, Microsoft Communicator Mobile and support for intranet and extranet portals built on Microsoft Share Point Server, these solutions offer professionals direct, secure and real-time access to corporate systems. Nokia Eseries also offers business grade security solutions for secure corporate connectivity.
Nokia business smartphones also give users a full multimedia experience, including a rich music player, a powerful camera for image and video capturing, mobile web browsing, access to a large selection of applications and content from global and local developers and content publishers via the Ovi Store, and Ovi Maps - probably the world’s best mobile navigation experience, powered by Navteq.
Nokia business smartphones (Eseries) are seeing spectacular growth – in the first half of 2010, Nokia Eseries business smartphones shipped over 12 million, representing a year-on-year growth of over 50% in Nokia Eseries shipments.
All of Nokia’s key differentiating factors and business mobility resources have been channelled into the Nokia E7. Equipped with a stunning 4-inch ClearBlack™ display and a powerful suite of business tools, the Nokia E7 is the key to having a successful day, in or out of the office.
The sleek device sports a tilting AMOLED ClearBlack™ display for improved visibility both indoors and out. The full QWERTY keyboard and capacitive touchscreen offers the ease of touch-and-type, while excellent email connectivity and security, mobile office tools and USB support capability ensure business needs are never compromised. With HD-quality video and image capture, integrated social networks and HDMI connectivity, the Nokia E7 is the perfect marriage of business and social.
“The needs of the business user are more complex. That’s the reason why it was key to address all of the varying factors in one compelling device. We are confident that the Nokia E7 will be an indispensable business smartphone,” said Vlasta Berka, General Manager for Nokia Singapore, Malaysia and Brunei. “The Nokia E7 was created around the theme of success. With all the tools you could have in a smartphone to facilitate this progress, this is the ultimate business smartphone.”
