The Nokia E70 is a candybar/fold keyboard type smartphone from the Eseries range, announced in October 2005 and released in May 2006. There are two models of this phone, the E70-1 for the world market with tri-band (900, 1800, 1900MHz) GSM and UMTS, and the E70-2 for the Americas with just tri-band (850, 1800, 1900MHz) GSM. Both models use the S60 platform on top of Symbian OS version 9.1.
The E70 is the successor to the 6822/6820 and the 6800 before that.

The Nokia E70 is aimed at the high-end professional market. The colour screen has a 352x416 pixel (totalling 146,432 pixels) resolution and is capable of GSM, 3G, WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity.
It should be noted, that despite the advanced features of this phone, there is a few missing features as well. The SIP VoIP functionality will currently not work through a firewall or most router configurations. Nokia has made a statement that they are working on implementing STUN (planned for 2006), TURN and ICE (planned 2007).
It may also come as a surprise, that the advanced Bluetooth capabilities of the phone, capable of connecting to up to six devices simultaneously, lacks A2DP support.
