Nokia has been trying hard to gain a strong foothold in the fast evolving smartphone market, and they are putting their money on the success of their latest mobile operating system, Symbian Anna.

The new offering comes with a high pixel density display, a capacitive touch screen and to top it all, a QWERTY keyboard. Here’s a look at the specs

Nokia E6 Price in India: 17,999/-

Looking at the specs you might not be immediately impressed, but the screen on this device is said to have higher pixel density than even Apple’s iPhone. An interesting feature considering the battery is humongous for a phone that is expected to be used only for business purposes and not for rich multimedia experience. After all the screen size is a disappointing 2.46 inches.

This phone will mainly appeal to the business user with its QWERTY keyboard and long battery life. It even comes bundled with some great software like the Nokia messenger, and integration with Microsoft’s business apps suite. All an all a fairly good device for a slightly high price.

What’s your take? Do you want to give E6 a try or go for Android alternatives from Samsung and HTCs of the world?
