The new device is bundled with the latest version of Nokia Messaging, an email service that enables users to manage multiple mailboxes with a single interface.
The email application provides access to work emails when based on Microsoft Exchange, and personal emails, such as Gmail, Yahoo Mail, Hotmail, Ovi Mail and many more. It also supports instant messaging on all popular chat platforms such as Gtalk, Yahoo and Ovi Chat. The application provides for sorting and searching emails as well as accessing Microsoft Office documents. It allows emails to be delivered to the device automatically without having to check for new emails constantly.
According to a Nokia statement, Nokia Messaging has more than one million users worldwide and it is present in more than 50 countries. The application is supported by more than 30 Nokia devices available in the world market.
Through Nokia Messaging, a person can set up an email account directly. To enable this application, a user needs to select 'Set up Email' option on the home page and then enter email address and password to log into the account. Nokia messaging aggregates all consumer and business email accounts through one client that can support multiple accounts. The user can have up to 10 personal email accounts and one business account for both Mail for Exchange and IBM Lotus Traveler.
Vineet Taneja,marketing director, Nokia India, said on the sidelines of a press conference, "Corporates are the first who are going to adopt this, next is SMEs (small and medium enterprises) and professionals. People looking for a great phone as well as a great email solution are those who will adopt this phone."
On promotional plans for E72, Taneja told Telecom Yatra, "There are three legs to our plans. Firstly, a very big digital plan. Secondly, we have a large database of people using E71, so they are going to be a target group. Lastly we will push it with the corporates."
The Nokia E72, priced at Rs 22,989, will be available in the Indian market starting today.
