CTIA: Nokia and Cingular

LOS ANGELES — On the heels of Verizon Wireless’ announcment that it is offering the highly anticipated Motorola Q, Cingular Wireless and Nokia said today that Cingular would be offering the Nokia E62, a sleek device built for wireless e-mail at a relatively low price.

The Nokia E62 device will be available exclusively from Cingular in the U.S. for about $150.

The device is about a half of an inch thick, and features a full keyboard and a sizable, high-resolution 16 million color screen.

Available e-mail platforms include Good Mobile Messaging, Cingular Xpress Mail, BlackBerry Connect, Mail for Exchange (direct push corporate e-mail from Microsoft Exchange), the Nokia push solution via Intellisync Mobile Suite and standard clients such as POP3, IMAP and SMTP.

Beyond e-mail, customers can view, edit and create documents, spreadsheets and presentations. They also can surf the Internet using the S60 browser developed by Nokia.

The Motorola Q was launched recently as a low-priced device that comes loaded with Windows Mobile 5.0. The trend is to be able to offer low-priced devices with a full keyboard more attractive to the broad consumer market, not just executives.
