Nokia has announced the forthcoming launch of the E52, a business-focused handset with a massive 23-days standby time.
According to Nokia, the mobile phone will appear during the second half of the year and will feature a 2.4-inch display and a host of other winning features, such as Nokia Maps, advanced e-mail functions and HSDPA support.
As well as offering lengthy battery life when in standby mode, Nokia claims that buyers of the E52 can expect up to eight hours of talk time, meaning that they can “sit on single call for an eight hour business day without plugging in the charger".
UK price points or carriers have yet to be confirmed, but it is expected that the mobile phone will be available through a range of networks.
The E52 is the successor to the highly successful E51, which combines a classic candybar handset form factor with support for most leading corporate and personal e-mail applications.
Other forthcoming mobile phone launches planned by Nokia this year include the successor to the N96, dubbed the N97, which is due to arrive in July.
