Nokia Launches the Nokia E63

by Clinton Jeff

Nokia launched the Nokia E63 today. Its basically a plastic/rubberized version of the highly successful E71 without built in GPS, and the addition of a 3.5mm audio jack. Also there's  2 Megapixel Camera (instead of the 3 MP on the E71), with no AutoFocus this time. There is a single LED Flash unit though. Yay. The E63 is also pre-configured to work with the Files on Ovi service.

Here's a bit from the press release on S60.com :

Nokia E63 joins the successful Nokia E71 to form a compelling QWERTY messaging device range

Espoo, Finland - Nokia today announced the latest addition to its Eseries range, the Nokia E63, designed for people who need to manage their business and personal lives equally well. Building on the success of the Nokia E71, the company's flagship messaging device, the Nokia E63 brings the QWERTY keyboard form factor to a broader audience at a great price. The Nokia E63 is expected to begin shipping in the coming weeks for an estimated retail price of EUR 199, before taxes and subsidies.

The Nokia E63 is a new proposition for Eseries - a messaging device where people will be just as involved in their social network as they are in their business network

Whilst appealing to a new group of consumers with a design that feels great in the hand and has two new colors, the Nokia E63 is still very much a member of the Eseries family. Petersen continues, "People use Eseries to access their corporate mail, review their calendar and work in their business network, so the Nokia E63 still includes Wi-Fi connectivity, easy access to Mail for Exchange and dedicated key access to contacts, calendar and email."

The Nokia E63 also has the ability to switch modes with a single key press, switching from a view of corporate mail, appointments and intranet data, to a personal mode with a picture of friends, personal email and shortcuts to favorite hobby blogs or websites. Petersen adds, "The amazing response we have seen to the Nokia E71, which has very quickly become the best selling model in its category, let us know that we are heading in the right direction. People want a rich experience when using messaging, social networks and the Internet. With the Nokia E63 you can enjoy the web, update your status and work meaningfully with multiple email accounts."

The Nokia E63 also includes Files on Ovi, a service where people can get remote access to their PC files even when their computer is offline. Anyone buying the handset will have access to 1GB of online file storage for free.

The Nokia E63 will be available in ruby red or ultramarine blue with a range of multimedia features. Record and view images and videos with the digital camera and bright landscape display, listen to music downloaded from the Nokia Music Store, or a number of other sources, via the standard 3,5 mm audio jack or customize the device through the thousands of applications available for download.

You can check out more about the E63 over on the Official Nokia E63 product page. Its expected to sell in the coming weeks at EUR 199 or about $250 before taxes. No word on a NAM unit yet though but there's probably one coming eventually.

The phone resembles Nokia cheaper phones available in India and many other developing countries...

Look at the 1200 and phones in the 2 series also... the design elements of the E63 are similar to them...

I'm a little disappointed by that...
