As Nokia announces the availability of the new Nokia E71 in the UK, 3, the mobile phone operator, has announced that it will be carrying a white version for those not impressed by grey.

The Nokia E71 will actually be available on a number of network operators including Vodafone, 3 and Orange however 3 will be the only place you'll be able to the white version.

The operator, hoping to lure you away from Vodafone and Orange, is also offering unlimited email for the phone for £2.50 and the promise that it will work with any email service out there.

The Nokia E71 is the world’s thinnest device with a full QWERTY keyboard and allows you to switch between two customisable "Home Screen" views at the touch of a button, allowing easy transfer from work life to personal life to access personal emails and entertainment options.

It will offer HSDPA, Wi-Fi, digital camera and the usual array of Ovi software from Nokia.
