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.
