BlackBerry-friendly Nokia E62 smartphone destined for Cingular

We first unearthed the specs around the elusive Nokia E62 smartphone way back in March, but now a few more deets have revealed themselves. Yes, it seems that the hot handset is destined for a Cingular dealer near you some time this summer, although they’re still not telling us how much it will cost, nor are they confirming a definite availability date.

For our Canadian readers, the rumour mill is telling us that the cell phone maker is chatting it up with Rogers about a possible launch there as well.

The good people at Nokia heard our plea and added Wi-Fi and USB support to the E62 smartphone, as well as reminding us that it will be compatible with BlackBerry thanks to the “BlackBerry Connect” software. Other key features include GPRS/EDGE for data, Bluetooth 1.2 for your wireless needs, and QuickOffice for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. As expected, the E62 will run on Symbian 9.1 and S60 3.0, and will stick with the dual-band GSM (850/1900) dance.
