Nokia has expanded its business device portfolio with an addition to its high-end smartphone range, the Nokia 9300i. The new models incorporates WLAN connectivity with a full keyboard, 65,536-color screen, support for a broad range of enterprise email solutions and an attachment viewer.
With the addition of WLAN connectivity, the Nokia 9300i plans to provide a reliable and cost-effective data connection for downloading large files or email with attachments. The smartphone comes with 80 MB of memory capacity (expandable up to 2GB with an optional MMC card).
"Nokia continues to offer more choices for individuals looking for fully featured smartphones built specifically for business use," said Niklas Savander, senior vice president of Nokia's business device unit for the Enterprise Solutions business group. "Our business customers want continuity as well as a constant stream of improvements in our products. The Nokia 9300i delivers just that as it combines WLAN and other features with a suite of powerful applications and email solutions."
The Nokia 9300i smartphone supports E-GPRS (EDGE) and WLAN 802.11g, five party conference calling via an integrated speakerphone and multiple email clients (with attachments), including BlackBerry Connect, Nokia Business Center, IBM WebSphere, Oracle Collaboration Suite, Seven Always-On Mail and Visto Mobile. The Nokia 9300i smartphone also integrates infrared and Bluetooth capabilities, giving users two different ways to wirelessly synchronize their devices to a desktop PC or laptop, as well as exchange data with other mobile devices.
Planned availability for the Nokia 9300i smartphone is Q1 2006. Nokia will offer one tri-band version of the Nokia 9300i optimized for mobile networks in Europe and Asia (900/1800/1900 MHz) and capable of operating in compatible GSM networks in the Americas.
