AT&T's Nokia E71x already available for 1¢

It looks like we’re not the only ones excited to see a desirable Symbian handset finally land on AT&T. Amazon.com is so excited in fact, it’s basically giving the phone away. AT&T’s slender new smartphone isn’t even a day old and it can already be had for the low, low price of 1¢. Seriously, just a penny — with free activation and free shipping! Of course the deal requires a 2-year contract but for Symbian fans, two years should be perfect. If the amount of time it took the company to launch the E71x is any indication, AT&T should just be releasing the N97 by the time your new contract is up. Those of you who have been begging for the E71x ever since we first scooped it back in November have probably already pulled the trigger at AT&T’s $99 price point, but no worries. $100 is hardly a tall order for the thinnest QWERTY smartphone in the world — plus FP2 bragging rights over your unlocked E71-carrying friends.

Thanks, Balki Bartokomous!

E71x still coming soon to AT&T, FP2 confirmed

E71x still coming soon to AT&T, FP2 confirmed

It looks like US Nokia fans are in for a little treat once the E71x finally makes it to market via AT&T. Sure, it seems like ages since the E71 was first released and that’s because, well, it has been ages. One of the biggest complaints with the E71 however, looks to be resolved. Despite the fact that the release timing of the E71 could certainly have made it a Feature Pack 2 (FP2) candidate, Nokia opted for S60 3rd Edition FP1 instead. For the E71x however, newly-found screenshots show the FP2 Device Manager. That’s right people, no more battling with Access Points – and maybe even OTA firmware updates! Despite the fact that Nokia has pulled the E71x user manual from its site since we scooped its little faux pas last week, we still expect Nokia’s sexy little QWERTY to be announced by AT&T very soon.

Video: Hands on with the Nokia N78

There are some handsets that are born crowd splitters, no question. For some people it’s love at first sight and others won’t even bat an eye. Nokia’s first Feature Pack 2 device to come to market, the N78, is just that. It’s sleek, thin and different with smooth lines and and a nice form factor. At the same time it’s a quirky handset with an atypical keypad and a back cover with an odd pattern. Specs-wise, it has plenty of juice; 3.2 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics and autofocus, internal GPS and OEM geotagging, integrated FM transmitter, and so on. Are specs enough incentive for the user to work through it’s oddities though? We’ll let you be the judge. Enjoy the 16 minutes of N78 walkthrough-love and then let us know what you think.
