Well lookie what we have here. The leak of a promotional video containing two upcoming Nokia Eseries handsets, at the time labeled E72 and E75, has spawned some digging around a few of the common sources of Nokia info. Say hello to three new XML files that represent the coming of the E63-1, E63-2 and E63-3. Because of the timing of all this it is certainly logical, though not certain by any means, that the E63 is in fact the final label that will be slapped on what we referred to as the E72 earlier. Ok then. So if the E72 does in fact turn out to be the E63, here’s what we know about this puppy so far:
- 320 x 240 pixel display
- S60 Feature Pack 1 (OS 9.2; not FP2 love for Eseries apparently)
- GPRS / EDGE / UMTS
- Three variants, presumably with varying flavors of 3G (same as the E71)
- Basically an E71 with a thick candy shell
Beyond that, it looks like the E72 / E63 will see a much-needed boost in terms of camera resolution, possibly even by way of some Carl Zeiss love. From the video it also looks like the size of the space key has been reduced by about 50% to allow the “/” and “@” keys on the left side of the board to be spread out (possibly with volume controls on each key). On the right side, it looks like the control and character keys have been separated as well. Honestly, we would have preferred to keep the wider space key – good luck typing out that email quickly when every other “space” ends up being a “/”.
