New Nokia is 'slim and text-focused'

Texting is the popular choice for many

Nokia claims one of its latest phones is not only ideal for messaging, it is also the slimmest of its type.

The Finnish manufacturer says the E71x is a model that is "the slimmest smartphone on the market" and is highly-anticipated by those who want a handset primarily focussed on text and email.

It is noted the handset also answers an issue highlighted by a survey conducted on its behalf by Braun Research - which showed one in two respondents preferred to communicate in this way rather than make a voice call.

Nokia spokesman David Petts commented: "The trend for messaging, whether email, IM, texting or social networking, is stronger than ever - we are seeing a real shift in the way people prefer to communicate."

The E71x is equipped with a full qwerty keyboard, 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity, a 3.2-megapixel camera with auto-focus technology and an integrated media player.

Nokia's original E71 is also available now and comes in black, grey and white.
