Nokia launches new range of phones
26 Apr, 2010, 1810 hrs IST, PTI
NEW DELHI: Finnish mobile phone maker Nokia launched its range of qwerty devices, whose keypad is like that of a computer keyboard, starting at Rs 5,300.
It has also launched an improved version of Nokia Messaging with free push mail service.
Nokia Messaging aggregates multiple email accounts through one client. It can support and mobilise up to 10 email accounts such as gmail, Yahoo, rediffmail, sify and Indiatimes among others.
Nokia today launched three devices-- C3, priced at Rs 5,317.89 (Euro 90), C6-- a touch and full keyboard phone-- at Rs 13,000 (Euro 220), while E5 is priced at Rs 10,634 (Euro 180), a business-cum-entertainment device.
Nokia, which is the market leader in India has been facing competition from home grown mobile manufacturers in the low-end mobile segment.
Players like Micromax and Olive have already launched Qwerty keypad phones with a price tag of Rs 2,000.
However, when asked whether Nokia is responding to the competition with the new launch, the company's Executive Vice President Anssi Vanjoki said, "It is a strategic option for Nokia. With the new devices we are bringing mobile messaging and social networking into the hands of more people."
With the free push mail service, Nokia is also trying to tap the mobile e-mail users in India.
"People are looking at messaging services as an enhanced business tool. There are six million mail users on mobile in India. The number is expected to touch 130 million in 2014," Nokia India Managing Director and Vice President D Shivakumar said.
India is among the top five countries for the service and we are confident that with our decision to offer it free of cost, we will see a significant surge in adoption of email and messaging services in the country, he added.
The service will be available through all leading operators in the country and consumers will only have to pay the basic data download charges.
It has over three million active users in more than 100 countries today.

Anonymous, 24 Apr 2010i just want to know what the difference between dis phne nd da nokia E71 is. they luk identica... morewell, i can only name few differences for you between E63 and E71.. i have experienced using my friends E71 and my E63
1st of all is the WLAN connection. as what i've experienced in using both phones is that E63 has faster WLAN modem than the E71.. it can connect faster than the E71..
2nd, its camera.. same functions but its the E71's advantage this time with its 3.2 MP resolution vs. the E63's 2 MP. both has LED flashes.
3rd, is its weight and size.. E71 is more slimmer and lighter than the E63..
4th, the price.. its the advantage for E63 this time.. E63 is more cheaper about 25% than the E71..
5th, E63 has a 3.5 mm audio jack and E71 has 2.5 mm.. advantage for E63 since you can connect any audio jacks without using an adapter.. for short, its universal..
and lastly, E63 consumes less power than its brother E71..
both has same MHz worth of speed.. about 369 MHz, i think.. but all i can say that E63 is worth for its price.. with its faster internet connection through WiFi and you can use universal audio jacks to your phone.. that's all i can share dude. just go to there site for more info..
Anonymous, 24 Apr 2010i just want to know what the difference between dis phne nd da nokia E71 is. they luk identica... moreThe only difference between E71 and E63 is : E71 has metal body, a GPS, 3.5MP camera, its more heavy in weight, its price is more, and it sucks big time. Besides that everything is exactly the SAME. If u can live with a 2MP camera and won't get lost without a GPS, E63 is PERFECT.
