Nokia slims down already thin Nokia E71
Nokia is on a mission here – they want to prove to the world that there is no such thing as being too thin, as with the case of the Nokia E71x, taking over the mantle of the E71 as the thinnest QWERTY smartphone in the world. This model was announced at CTIA Wireless 2009, and will be delivered to folks living across the US who will subscribe to AT&T in the coming weeks. Similar in design and feel to the highly touted E71, the E71x is set to bring the brand to greater heights, and if this model could also weed out whatever niggling weaknesses the already strong E71 has, we could have a very strong contender for smartphone of the year despite it being only April, and that too, will depend on how well the Palm Pre does when it rolls out sometime in the middle of this year alongside the rumored whisperings of an updated iPhone.
According to Mark Louison, President, Nokia Inc., “The E71x is a lean, mean multimedia machine for busy people who want Internet-on-the-go capabilities in the palm of their hands. Together with our carrier and industry partners in North America, Nokia continues to enhance the consumer mobile experience through a growing range of QWERTY music, messaging and feature rich devices.”
Available in a black steel color, the Nokia E71x will be an exclusive to AT&T and houses a wide range of multimedia and messaging capabilities that will certainly get smartphone fans drooling. You will be able to enjoy a large, high-resolution display with a full QWERTY keyboard to handle all your communications and emails in a jiffy. Not only that, you can also use Mail for Exchange and keep in touch with friends and family in real time, thanks to push email capabilities. In addition, the E71x will also play nice with thousands of Internet service providers such as Gmail, Yahoo! mail and Hotmail. Other features include high-speed 3G connectivity, Wi-Fi, a built-in MP3 player and a 3.2 megapixel auto-focus camera. No idea on how much this will cost when it arrives though.
