Get Fit for Business with the Two New Nokia UMTS Smartphones that Vodafone is Launching PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 18 May 2006

The Nokia E60 and the Nokia E61 are the two new smartphones on the shelves at the Vodafone shops. They are specifically tailored to the needs of professional users. Both of the new models use Vodafone's high-speed UMTS network which is already available in 1800 German towns and cities. The Nokia E60 is an extremely compact business model with a classic design, and the Nokia E61 is a mobile mail machine with a qwerty keyboard. Both smartphones support automatic e-mail reception, the BlackBerry standard and Windows Mobile E-Mail by Microsoft. Neither have an integrated digital camera, reflecting the preferences and specific needs of many business users.

The Nokia E60 and E61 are the two new, multitalented UMTS phones that Vodafone has added to its range. Their extensive functions and ease of operation make them perfect for mobile working. The E61 actually has a complete keyboard underneath its large display for convenient e-mail writing and text processing. The compact E60 has no additional keyboard and it appeals to users who prefer a more classic phone design. Both smartphones have an internal dynamic memory of up to 75 megabytes which can be extended, if required, by the use of additional memory cards.

The E60 is a triband phone and the E61 has quadband technology. Both of the smartphones are equipped for use in Europe and overseas. Thanks to their integrated W-LAN function, the phones can be used at hotspots in hotels or airport lounges for internet or company intranet access. Calls can be made to other mobile or stationary phones via USB cable, infrared interface or Bluetooth technology. The Nokia PC Suite is used for the stationary synchronisation of addresses and appointments with the PC. Both models are also suitable for push e-mail and Blackberry-based synchronisation services, as well as Microsoft's Windows Mobile E-Mail. Apart from a Vodafone customer contract, all you have to do to use these services is to book the Vodafone BlackBerry Services option.

The new Vodafone mobiles support business users in their work and they also have many additional practical functions. These include an integrated hands-free function, alarm clock function and vibrating alert. Thanks to the 'memo' function, these two all-round phones can also be used as dictating machines. Different time zones can be programmed into the world time clock and displayed as required. There is also a voice command function to open the menus. The Nokia E60 supports voice dialling for numbers in the phone's directory.

Both of the new Vodafone mobiles are available now. In conjunction with a Vodafone customer contract and the Vodafone 100 tariff with 24-month minimum term and a one-off connection fee of EUR 25, the Nokia E60 costs EUR 169.50. If an additional data tariff option is booked, e.g. Vodafone-Volume L with 24-month minimum term and a monthly flatrate of EUR 9.86, it only costs EUR 119.50. The Nokia E61 with keyboard is available with a Vodafone customer contract in the Vodafone 100 tariff for EUR 159.50 and it costs EUR 109.50 if an additional data tariff is booked. The data tariff options are only available to customers with a Vodafone BusinessData data card that has a 24-month minimum term, a one-off connection fee of EUR 24.95 and a monthly basic charge of EUR 4.64. The monthly minimum data card volume of EUR 5.80 can be deducted from the monthly free data volume that comes with the additionally booked data tariff option. The Vodafone Volume L data tariff option comes with a free monthly data volume of 30 MB for national data packages in the German Vodafone network. The customer also pays EUR 1.86 /MB for national data packages in the German Vodafone network.
