Nokia will release its E71 and E66 business phones, along with the new N96, in the next three months, according to an interview with the senior executive vice president of Nokia Markets, Anssi Vanjoki.

In an interview with Reuters, he says: "We will in the third quarter bring to the market the N96 we have launched and a group of E-series multimedia computers that will be sure to have a strong stamp on where this market is going."
