Remember the Nokia E71x we scooped like soft serve back in November? You know, the AT&T-branded version of what is arguably the sexiest Finnish handset to ever have been assembled. Well guess what folks, the E71x can now be yours! That’s the good news, unfortunately the bad news is that AT&T has nothing to do with it – oh, and only one person will be able to get his or her grubby little mitts on this rare specimen. That’s right people, the E71x is getting a healthy dose of eBay treatment and now is your chance to get this slim QWERTY before anyone else does. Actually, the fact that it’s up on eBay right now most likely means that we’re very close to an official release, or the handset was scrapped and testers no longer have any use for it. We’re hoping the former is the case of course as the E71x would be an awesome addition to any carrier lineup and S60 needs all of the US carrier love it can get. The seller’s location is listed as Grand Prairie, TX which is just a stone’s throw from Nokia’s offices in Irving. We’ll give you three guesses as to where the seller got it. The auction ends in just over three and a half hours and the current bid is $275… Who’s up for a swoop-fest?
