Nokia E55 unboxing video

The Nokia E55 is another new handset to enter Nokia’s E-series range and a good looking device it is too! Possibly one of the thinnest handsets that I’ve seen for a while and certainly one of the small to have a compact QWERTY keyboard.


The Nokia E55


The E55, at first glance, looks a little like a regular candy-bar style Nokia handset but then upon further inspection you’ll notice the 20-key compact QWERTY keyboard and the generous QVGA screen which make for a good combination on a messaging device.

Emma is reviewing the E55 at the moment so please be sure to direct any specific questions to her by responding to this post on the forum. In the mean time have a look at the unboxing video below to see what the E55 has to offer.

HTC Leo arriving on O2


If you needed another reason to frown upon the state of the North American wireless industry, allow us to go ahead and turn your attention to Exhibit A here. What you’re looking at is some promotional material backing up earlier rumors that the HD2 / Leo is en route to O2 in the UK, but what’s especially upsetting (though not terribly surprising) is the knowledge that customers will be able to scoop up HTC’s new ultra-high-end WinMo beast for zilch on an O2 1200 tariff — a plan that runs something like £45 (about $72) a month. Oh, and that’s on an 18-month contract, not 24. Meanwhile, we’ll be lucky to ever see the Leo land in its natural, original, HTC-approved state on a carrier at any price in the US, but hey, at least we’ve still got some more Touch Pro2 launches to look forward to, right?
