Nokia today announces the availability of Nokia Eseries business devices in the U.S. through a variety of channels, allowing both business and individual users to obtain enterprise-grade dual-mode devices – including the new Nokia E61i and Nokia E65 – in this market.
Nokia is addressing the market demand from both businesses and individual users through complementary sales channels including IT, operator, and retail/e-tail. Business customers can now purchase fleets of Nokia Eseries devices through the IT channel, the preferred and trusted channel of businesses. Nokia supplies the devices to the IT channel through distribution agreements with Brightpoint and Ingram Micro. All approved value-added resellers (VARs) in the Nokia for Business Channel Program are authorized to resell the devices to their business customers. Today there are more than 140 approved VARs in this program in the U.S., and Nokia continues to enlist and train new participants.
For individual business users – or simply “busy” users – Nokia Eseries devices are available through a number of online retailers, including Dell.com, Gateway, Inc. and Mobileplanet.com. Devices are supplied to the retail channels through distribution agreements with Brightpoint and Ingram Micro.
Nokia E61i and Nokia E65 are expected to retail for approximately $400, but actual price will vary by outlet.
Additional information about Nokia E61i, Nokia E65 and the entire portfolio of Nokia Eseries devices is available at Nokia for Business
