Nokia E75 set to debut at GSMA 2009?

Photos of the Nokia E75 smartphone are starting to surface on the Web with speculation that the device may officially be announced at GSMA Mobile World Congress 2009.

Nokia has yet to announce its Nokia E75 smartphone, but there's mounting evidence that the device will soon become an official member of the family, perhaps at GSMA Mobile World Congress in February.

CNET Asia first reported on some leaked video (which has now been taken down) of the Symbian handset, as well as the Nokia E72, back in September 2008, but on Friday, the buzz kicked up again after the Swedish site Daily Mobile posted some pretty legitimate-looking photos of the E75.

The Nokia E75 looks to be similar in design to the HTC S743 in that it has a compact candy bar shape with an alphanumeric keypad on the front, but then slides open to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard. (The pictured model is apparently a German version of the phone, hence the QWERTZ format.) Specs are pretty light at this point, but some reported features include a 2.4-inch screen, a 3.2-megapixel camera, integrated Wi-Fi, and HSDPA support.

The popular belief is that Nokia will announce the Nokia E75 at the Mobile World Congress 2009, which kicks off February 16 in Barcelona, Spain. Both Kent German and I will be there again this year to cover the show so we'll certainly report on any news as it occurs.
