Seems like Nokia realised that many users are not clear on the direction and the app availability for email, social network and messaging on Nokia devices.

That’s why the company launches a new portal that features all the messaging options and ambitions.

The portal is divided into 3 main sections: Email, Instant Messaging and Social Networking.

Each section tells users what they can do on their phone in messaging and how it helps them to communicate better.

Once the user has selected the device, the graphic changes to match messaging options for the selected model.

Here’s a video overview of Nokia Messaging.

I was at the Nokia E75 Bloggers Email Night yesterday at Saffron, Solaris Mont Kiara. At the event they previewed and shared with us some info on Nokia’s moves in email and messaging.

One of the speakers were Mr. Bambos Kaisharis, Marketing Manager for Nokia Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei. He engaged us with questions about emails, how emails have evolved and explained why we should funnel all our emails into one medium etc…

He also explains why the E75 is the perfect device for messaging and email as it not only spots a full qwerty keyboard, but also a full fledged Nokia Messaging software that pushes our personal and corporate emails into the device so that we can check them wherever we are.

We then got the chance to play with the E75 and tried setting up the email accounts on the device.

Mr. Glenn Cha, product manager for Nokia Malaysia explains more on how the messaging system works on the device while showing us real life implementations of the service.
