Finnish telecom giant Nokia has launched two new email-capable handsets for business users and vowed to defend its position as the world's leading mobile phone maker.
Nokia said the E71 and E66 were pre-loaded with Microsoft's popular email programme and would cater to business professionals who want easy and instant access to their messages.
"With the E series, we want to serve people who are passionate about their work," said Chris Carr, Nokia's vice president for regional sales, at a launch in Singapore late Monday.
The two phones would be available in July and support email accounts from key Internet service providers such Yahoo! and Google's Gmail, the firm said.
