So why, then? Well, because there’s an E5 unveiled by the Bluetooth SIG, with a different model number (RM-634). Its geographic availability is said to include Australia, North America, and South America.
Moreover, the E5’s official data sheet (PDF) says there’s a version of the smartphone with 850 / 1900 3G bands – making it perfect for AT&T, or Canada’s top carriers. So I’d say there’s a considerable chance for this new Symbian smartphone to hit North America sometime soon.
Announced at the same time with he C3 and the C6, Nokia E5 is a handset with a QVGA display, full QWERTY keyboard, Wi-Fi, HSDPA/HSUPA, A-GPS, Ovi Maps with free navigation, 3.5mm headset jack, 5MP camera with LED flash, 250MB of internal memory, and a 2GB card in the box. Not bad at all for a device that will cost about €180 ($220) unlocked.
