E71 appears on Nokia site in both red and black

While S60 fans here in the US anxiously await the arrival of AT&T’s E71x, provided they haven’t already bought and sold their E71 months ago, Nokia is getting ready to push out the color refresh we caught wind of last month. The E71 page on Nokia’s site now includes a fresh Flash banner front and center that proudly showcases the new red / silver and black color choices. The online shop still limits purchase options to silver or white, though we imagine that will soon change once stock is received. Lack of any indication on Nokia’s US site leads us to believe the new colors will apply to the European variant only, but you never know. While the red / silver version is a tad too, umm, spicy for our taste, the black version definitely has some appeal. AT&T seems to agree, as its E71x looks to have opted for the darker garb. Hopefully we see some movement from AT&T soon because new details on the E71x’s arrival has been scarce since the user manual made a brief appearance on Nokia’s site earlier this month.

Thanks, Justin!

Black and silver / red versions of E71 caught on camera

Black and silver / red versions of E71 caught on camera

Well lookie here. Taking a page out of its own N95 book, Nokia appears to be mixing things up a bit by issuing some color refreshes for the E71. In comparing this to the N95, we mean users should get ready for things to get confusing. There’s no question the E71 is one of the sexiest and most desirable handsets to come out of Finland to date and as was the case with the uber-successful N95, Nokia looks to be going a bit overboard in terms of milking it for all it’s worth. In fact, our favorite Finns have gone above and beyond the call of duty this time. Two new color variants of the E71 made it into the wild recently at Nokia World and considering the E63 is basically an E71-lite (no HSDPA, no GPS, no volume keys / dedicated power button, 2 megapixel camera, plastic body, slightly modified keyboard), we’re now looking at no fewer than 12 different versions of the same phone:

  • Silver E71-1
  • Silver E71-2
  • Silver E71-3
  • Silver / Red E71 (unknown number of variants)
  • Black E71 (unknown number of variants)
  • Black E71x
  • Red E63-1
  • Red E63-2
  • Red E63-3
  • Blue E63-1
  • Blue E63-2
  • Blue E63-3

Did we miss anything? Hit the jump for a shot of the black E71.

BlackBerry Curve Sunset Pushed Back to Next Monday

BlackBerry Curve Sunset Pushed Back to Next Monday

In keeping with the theme of delays, it looks like the sunset-colored BlackBerry Curve we told you about earlier this month has been pushed back a week. Why? We have no idea but lately it seems like “delay” and “BlackBerry” are becoming synonymous. Software delays, hardware delays; is the strength of the CAD compared to the USD so shocking that RIM employees are all taking some time off to vacation south of the border? Of course a matter of a week is hardly the end of the world and besides, it’s just a red Curve. While BlackBerry fans anxiously await new devices we just don’t think a sunset Curve is going to be quite enough to tide anyone over. After all, reports are swirling right now with regards the BlackBerry Bold having been delayed yet again to a September release with many carriers. Wait a minute, didn’t we tell you that almost two weeks ago? Oh well, some may have missed the memo. Hey at least the Thunder hasn’t been delayed… Yet.
