[ Music ] ^M00:00:06 >> Hi, I'm Bonnie Cha, Senior Editor at CNET.com. And we are here in Barcelona at GSMA 2009 and we're taking a first look at the Nokia E75 and the Nokia E55 which were announced today. These are Nokia's new E-series phones, which are kind of more business-centric. The E75 has this nice cell phone design, but also slides up to have a full QWERTY keyboard, so obviously very messaging-centric. You know they tout it as kind of a desktop-like experience. This should be out in the second quarter globally. They haven't really announced the US availability date, but we're assured it should be coming. It also supports U.S. 3G band. And the Nokia E55 is more of phone-centric, very, very thin. It's Nokia's thinnest E-series device, also has a huge battery in the back and has up to 28 days of standby time. So, it's pretty huge. Availability is Q2, so I'm looking forward to checking these devices out. I'm Bonnie Cha and this has been your First Look at the Nokia E75 and the Nokia E55. ^M00:01:07 [ Music ]
