Nokia E6 can be pre-ordered at Amazon for $446, shipping in “one to two months”
Here’s one for you Symbian fan in the US of A. Or you, Nokia fanboy living in Uncle Sam’s backyard. The Symbian Anna-running, QWERTY+touchscreen touting Nokia E6 (or E6-00, to be precise) is now up for pre-order stateside.
Amazon is the ingenious retailer who didn’t want to disappoint the aforementioned fans, and has listed the Nokia E6 for a cool $446. That, of course, will get you an unlocked, unbranded, SIM-free device that hasn’t been tinkered with by a carrier in any way, shape, or form. Some like them that way.
The Nokia E6 will work on both AT&T and T-Mobile, and you’ll be able to use all their connectivity options (GSM, EDGE, 3G, “4G”) since the E6, like all recent Symbian smartphones, comes with a pentaband 3G radio that makes it pretty much the definition of a world phone. Of course, like with any GSM-based phone, you won’t be able to use the E6 on Sprint or Verizon.
Amazon says that it will start shipping the E6 in “1 to 2 months”, which is uncharacteristically vague, but there you have it. If you’re dying to get your grubby mitts on the E6, then run to Amazon now, place your order, then patiently start waiting. A month, two – who cares, when you’ll be able to play with Symbian Anna?
