Nokia E52: Mobile Warrior


If you’ve got a hectic lifestyle your going to need a phone that can keep up, businesses and road warriors could do worse than take a close look at the recently released Nokia E52. A phone that takes the notion of staying in contact and up to date very seriously indeed.

Underneath those chiselled looks beats the heart of a mobile power house, the specs make impressive reading. Features include QVGA display, 3.2-megapixel camera, A-GPS, HSDPA/ HSUPA, WLAN, UPNP, DLNA, Bluetooth 2.0 EDR, 3.5mm audio jack, microsd card, noise cancellation and the latest 600mhz cpu.

The goodies list is to long to mention here but the standout features are 8 hrs talk time and 28 hrs standby, remote lock/wipe over-the-air, the 10.2 Mbps download and 2 Mbps upload is enough for to keep even the most modern network busy for years to come and if your the travelling type who needs to tether your phone to a laptop, you wont find a better phone to stay connected at high speed at this price and the 6hrs of continuous 3G use is unheard of previously.

Running the very latest S60 3rd Edition with a browser that’s said to render pages faster than the iPhone 3GS, the latest Nokia’s absolutely fly compared to even their most recent cousins. Messaging is catered for with full Ovi access, Instant Messaging and Nokia Messaging, a html email client that’s a breeze to setup, just give it your email address, password and the E52 will do the rest, pushing emails to your phone as they arrive. In a meeting when the phone rings? no problem, just flip over the phone to silence it. Nice.

A-GPS plus a compass, which comes preloaded with Nokia Maps application is a boon, although the 2.4″ screen is not really well suited to use as an in-car satnav. Google Maps is the real use for GPS here, giving all the location based services you will ever need.

When it comes time to relax, the E52 is no slouch here either, the 3.5mm audio jack or Bluetooth Stereo allow you to make the most of the built in media player, FM radio with RDS and a podcasting client with a huge selection of podcasts to choose from. A 1GB memory card is included to get you going, a bigger card would’ve been nice to see, but memory is cheap these days and 32GB card will slot in nicely.

Available now for £229 unlocked and free on contract, this phone is ideal for those who dont need a qwerty keyboard and just want a device that can keep up with their hectic lifestyle with a minimum of fuss.
