Nokia E50

From Legacy Portable Computing Wiki
Nokia E50 Metal Black

The Nokia E50 (type RM-170, codenamed Siperia) is an affordable business-class Symbian smartphone announced in May 2006 and released in September of the same year.

It is compact and has a metal build and being the cheapest model of the Eseries lineup and one of the cheapest Symbian OS smartphones Nokia has ever offered at the time, it doesn't support 3G networks.

The E50 was designed for people who want one phone for both business and leisure use. Its features include preinstalled business applications and a 1.3 megapixel camera, though Nokia also offered a non-camera variant of the E50.

Variants

  • E50-2 (RM-171): A variant of E50 with camera omitted.
  • E50 Metal Black: Black color variant, released in December 2006 with limited availability. Has the same type designation and features as the standard E50-1.
