Finnish mobile firm Nokia is to launch a couple of news E-series handsets.

The new phones, the E55 and E75, announced at the Mobile World Congress
in Barcelona, are claimed to be the most compact and thinnest
smartphones available.

Both are said to offer standby times of a month and keypad-wise, the
devices emulate the Blackberry with two letters per key in a compact
QWERTY-style keyboard.

The E55 sports one-click access to commonly used programs and will also
feature Nokia Maps, A-GPS and N-Gage gaming capabilities.

It will also come with a 3.2-megapixel camera.

"When we launched the Nokia E71 last year, we really set a new standard
for just how compact a full QWERTY device could be," said Kai Oistamo, Executive Vice President at Nokia.
"We have continued on this theme and have come back with the world’s
most compact messaging device, the Nokia E55."

The Nokia E75 is expected to ship in March for around £360. The Nokia E55 is expected to
ship in the second quarter for around £260.
