On Wednesday, Nokia introduced its latest E series device, the Nokia E52--a voice-centric smartphone that claims 8 hours of talk time and 23 days of standby time.

In addition to the impressive battery life numbers, the E52 features noise-cancellation technology to bring you better call quality and also comes with a feature called Call Connect, which allows you to hook up your corporate phone system with your mobile phone.

While the extremely thin candy-bar-style handset doesn't feature a full QWERTY keyboard, it is e-mail capable with support for Nokia Messaging, Mail for Exchange, and Lotus Notes Traveller. Other highlights include HSPDA/HUSPA, Wi-Fi, A-GPS, and a 3.2-megapixel camera.

The E52 is expected to go on sale during the second half of the year for 245 Euros (around $325 U.S.). The smartphone will be available in metal gray or golden aluminum and will ship with a 1GB microSD card and a complimentary 60-day to File on Ovi.
