#CTIA09: Nokia E71x for AT&T in the Flesh
This week AT&T came out with the announcement that 6 different phones are ready to be welcomed into the loving arms of the GSM giant’s already potent lineup of phones, and many of these phones have been on display at CTIA 2009.
One of those six featured phones is the Nokia E71x, the latest Symbian device on AT&T attempted by Nokia. At an announced price point of $99 with contract, this smartphone is certainly worth a look.
So what do we see in this particular device? First off, I was very enamored by the total size. For everything that’s packed in the phone, it is quite thin and narrow. The design genius, I feel, was in the keyboard. For such a small phone the keyboard should be crammed and difficult to use — but that wasn’t the case for me when I used it. Indeed, typing felt rather comfortable.
The E71x will offer WiFi, Mail for Exchange, 3 MP camera, and GPS. It is almost identical to the original E71 that can already be purchased in Nokia stores, except with an all-black housing and, of course, the AT&T touch.
Have a look-see at some pics of the device. More pics/videos to come on the E71x soon.
