The E6 is Nokias latest business offer and it has just landed in our office. Its the companys first smartphone running the new Symbian Anna OS out of the box. The E6 is a touch phone with a QWERTY keyboard and it even has a higher pixel density than the iPhones Retina display.
It was a while since weve seen a high-end Nokia messenger. We are not trying to dismiss the previous E-series achievements, theyve just became too conventional. Lucky for us the E6 brings a few interesting innovations to freshen up the lineup. It was about time!

The E6 is Nokias first handset with VGA resolution and also Nokias first QWERTY bar with a touchscreen. Its pixel density is even higher than the Apples Retina display. The E6 doesnt stop here though it packs the same camera module as most of its Symabian^3 siblings an 8 megapixel fixed-focus sensor capable of HD video recording. Add the new Symbian^3 update Anna and we might have a potent business or messaging phone if not else.
