Nokia did a refresh of their year-old E51 candybar business phone and announced the Nokia E52 today without much fanfare.
A lot was was improved from the previous model and the upgrades I think are well worth it.
2.4 inches screen (240x 320 pixels)
3G/HSDPA up to 10.2Mbps (HSUPA, 2Mbps)
WiFi 802.11 b/g
3.2MP fixed-focus camera with flash (2048×1536 pixels)
Front-facing camera for video calls
ARM 11 600MHz processor
Stereo FM with RDS
60MB internal memory (up 16GB on microSD)
GPS with A-GPS support and Nokia Maps 3.0
This phone is much thinner at 9.9mm (as slim as the Nokia 5310 while the E51 is 12mm) and still gets a 3.5mm audio jack. Has a 1500mAh battery that can last 8 hours on a phone call and 6 hours on 3G. What is most intruiging is that it’s powered by a 600MHz ARM 11 CPU, almost twice as fast as the latest Nokia 5800.
Suggested retail price – $326 (~Php15k) but could go down to the same price as the E51 (Php12-13k) when it first came out.
