Nokia E5 heading to Orange

New QWERTY mailer 'coming soon' says network

Three months on from announcement, E5 looks like it's good to go.

The Nokia E5 is on its way to Orange. The network has just stuck up a new page on its official store, showing off the QWERTY mail machine, saying it’s ‘coming soon’.

Free on contract, the Nokia E5 is the successor to the much-loved and super-powerful E71 and E72. As well as packing in a full physical keyboard, it also rocks a 2.4-inch screen, HSDPA, Wi-Fi, DLNA and GPS with Nokia’s ace, free Ovi Maps.

The battery life is, as ever with the E-series, a stonker, lasting up to 20 whole days on standby. You’ll be able to snaffle it on PAYG too, just in case you don’t fancy tying yourself down for a couple of years.
