AT&T-branded E71x user manual now available on Nokia site; release imminent

We have to admit, we got a little worried when a couple of E71x handsets went up on eBay yesterday. As we mentioned, it certainly could have meant that the handset was scrapped and testers were ridding themselves of old stock. We kept our fingers crossed that it was a positive sign however; an indication that the handset would soon become available via AT&T. As it happens, a little mix up at Nokia is a very good sign that we may be just a few short days away from an official launch. The user manual for AT&T’s branded version of the E71 is now available on the Nokia USA site, dated tomorrow, and it’s chocked full of E71x images bearing the AT&T logo. There you have it S60 fans – if you’ve somehow managed to hold off on purchasing this sexy Eseries handset, a very attractive subsidized price is undoubtedly coming your way. Congrats are in order for Nokia as well as the placement of yet another S60 handset with AT&T is indeed a big deal. While the E71x certainly would have sold much better if it had found its way to AT&T a bit closer to the initial E71 release, a subsidized price between $99 – $149 or even less (speculation) should definitely help this puppy move.

Thanks, Justin!
