It’s not a BlackBerry, but when you whip out this hot new business handheld in public, you know that’s going to be the common public perception. Starting this week, you’ll be able to waltz into Nokia flagship stores to get your hands on the Nokia E71.
The latest in a long line of QWERTY-packing smartphones, the Nokia E71 is a dual-band WCDMA (850/1900) phone with GPS, microSD memory expansion, Symbian OS 9.2, Series 60 v3.1 UI, HTML web browser, 3 megapixel camera, video calling, and your usual smattering of personal information management software.
From what we hear, the Nokia flagship store in Chicago already has their hands on the first shipment and has already started to contact customers on the waiting list. If you’re on the list, you might be expecting a call soon. Retail is $480.
