In a nutshell, the E75 is the handset world’s email workhorse and has a simple three-step set-up process for your email accounts.

The E75 will come in three colours: black, tan and red, and has a consumer-friendly curved design, but also has the advantage of both a regular keypad and a full slide-out QWERTY keyboard.

The Nokia E75 is expected to ship at an estimated retail price of €375 before taxes and subsidies.
