AT&T confirms E71x coming in April or May, only $99.99

OK we can now move the Nokia E71x device out of the rumor mill category and put it into the confirmed device category. According to Sascha Segan AT&T announced 6 new devices coming to their network soon, including the E71x. The E71x will have 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS capabilities so it doesn’t look like AT&T took out anything. It should be available in late April or early May for $149.99 $99.99 with a two-year contract and $50 rebate. (not sure about rebates).

I hope to get one to review for a bit since I am still very curious about the firmware version and if the camera performance has improved. At this price, I am most likely going to see if I am eligible for the upgrade (I bought a HTC Fuze back in the Fall) and pick myself up one of these. The E71 is fantastic and will look great in all black.

Some sources are claiming a price of $99. I don’t see a front facing camera, assuming that it was removed to reduce costs, but the press release says the phone supports AT&T’s 2-way video conferencing. I would have bought this if it was available last January, but I’m hoping that whoever paid to develope the AT&T’s version of this firmware will want to get more bang for their buck by porting it to the E75 too!

about that Fuze… how rickety is the sliding keyboard on that thing? i’m trying to decide what way to upgrade past my old 8525, but am rather skeptical of the Fuze hardware.

and yes, i’m very interested in the upcoming E71x. i dunno if i ever want another phone that lacks a flashlight on it.
