Nokia Outs Plush E52 With Outstanding Battery Life

There are sequels which do their best to avoid the obvious numerical jump: A Few Dollars More, Another 48 Hours, then there's Nokia's way of doing it...

The 'E52' is - surprise, surprise - the successor to the ageing but impressive E51. It piles on the practicality too taking design cues from the swanky E71, measuring just 116 x 49 x 9.9mm and weighing 98g plus throwing in niceties like HSDPA, WiFi and aGPS.

Other tasty elements include support for Windows Live, Yahoo! instant messaging, Facebook, YouTube, and MySpace plus Ovi, an FM tuner, Bluetooth with A2DP and a 3.5mm headphone jack. There's a microSD expansion slot and full html web browser in there as well with built in flash support though the 2.4in QVGA display and 3.2MP camera are more perfunctory.

Perhaps the most surprising aspect to the E52 however is something rather more practical: battery life. Nokia quotes a huge eight hours of talk time from a single charge or up to 28 days on standby. Yes, the usual caveats will have attained these figures such as WiFi, Bluetooth and 3G all off - but it's still incredibly impressive.

The Nokia E52 will ship in Q2 and given that ends in July don't expect to wait long to have one in your mitts. A few more tasty morsels like this, plus a promising second touchscreen handset and maybe 90 per cent profit crashes will be a thing of the past...

Although its difficult to see from the picture above but an improvement on the d pad is much needed. Im typing this on an e51 now and its an uncomfortable experience and often leaves the tip of my thumb sore.

Slightly off topic here... can anyone recommend a good phone for internet browsing?

To Williamn:

Like it or not, Iphone is a superior phone for internet browsing (in terms of user-friendliness). Don't flame me as I am not an Apple fanboy lol

HTC Dream aka G1, it's not that expensive, and boy is it joy to explore the web on this phone.


I have E51 and i like it's d-pad very much, it clicks lightly and whole d-pad fits under my thumb.

Randy: but dont you find the edges of the pad rather sharp to the touch?

No, they are barely lifted above the rest of the keyboard, and they are quite smooth. Are we talking about this silver square pad placed in the center?

I've just checked other E51's we have in stock (i work in T-mobile) and you're right the new keyboards have a bit raised and sharper edges on the d-pad. But can they be annoying? Not for me.

randy: over even a moderate length of use it can be

the bottom back edge can be quite sharp and piercing to the side of your little finger

that said my standards are quite high after having used the legendary 6310i for over 5 years before this
