So we also got the chance to check out the Nokia E6 yesterday, the successor of the Nokia E72 but now comes with the more improved Symbian Anna. The least I can say is that it’s an impressive combo.
The Nokia E6 inherits the same form factor as the popular E71 and E72 but this time, it also comes with a touch screen which makes some aspects of navigation easier and more intuitive.
The specs aren’t that much except for a few improvements over the E72 like a bigger megapixel camera, internal storage, HD video recording and graphics hardware accelerator. At first look, the unit looks like one of those BB phones, only slimmer with a more rounder corners and a bit heavier due to the metallic construction.
Nokia E6 specs:
2.46″ touch display @ 640Ã—480 pixels
8GB internal storage
256 MB RAM, 1GB ROM
up to 32GB microSD

The most interesting feature is the new and improved Symbian Anna. The OS is spiffy, very responsive and cleaned up compared to the previous Symbian variants. Even the UI is more intuitive with widgets you can customize along 3 home screens.
The Nokia E6 could be out before the end of the 3rd quarter (definitely not this June) and will have a retail price int he vicinity of the E72 SRP.
