Email-focused launch for those recycling mobile phones

The E72 is available now

The "highly-anticipated" nature of the Nokia E72 could convince some to recycle mobile phones for the cash to buy one.

According to the Finish manufacturer, the handset is equipped with a number of facilities that make it ideal for both professional and casual users.

It was noted that the Nokia E72 hits stores this week alongside a new study that reveals just how much the general public relies on email services - something the new handset is designed to focus on.

Company vice-president Ukko Lappalainen said: "The research shows that people are spending an average of five full days per year - equivalent to a full work week - responding to emails."

It was noted 46 per cent would rather communicate in this way than make a voice call or send a text when important information is involved.

The Nokia E72 features a full qwerty keyboard, desktop-style email and chat services, Ovi Maps, A-GPS navigation and a five-megapixel camera.

Older models in the same series include the E71.
