Is the Nokia C7 coming to T-Mobile USA as the Tiger?

Is the Nokia C7 coming to T-Mobile USA as the Tiger?I had a chance to play with the Nokia C7 for a bit last fall at Nokia World and found it to be a very good device. It reminds me of the E71 as an all touchscreen device, in terms of overall feel and quality. According to Engadget the C7 user manual hit the FCC with support for T-Mobile AWS. Remember, these new Symbian^3 devices are the world’s only penta-band GSM devices so they work with 3G on T-Mobile and AT&T. Thus, you should be able to buy this, get it unlocked, and use it with AT&T as well if that is your desire.

T-Mobile has done a fairly good job of supporting Nokia with the Nuron and most recently the Nokia E73 Mode. The C7 is a very popular smartphone due to its power and price so having this on T-Mobile should be good for both Nokia and T-Mobile. If my wife did not have the Nokia N8, then I would likely pick up a C7 for her since she likes the battery life, call quality, and reliability of the Symbian platform.

I would love to have a Nokia E7, but it is priced way too high (even for my tastes). However, I may just consider picking up a Nokia C7 if it is priced right.

Uncertainty of Nokia (no road maps published on S^3 development) mean I won’t purchase an S^3 device until I see releases of software updates which provide significant additional functionality. Nokia and Microsoft have failed to deliver on a lot of fronts. If it comes to T-mobile, I may walk in and have a look, but will likely take a wait and see.

Dell has the nokia n8 for 330 I might pick that up unlocked and then get the “Tiger” for my wife. Do you know if it will require a smartphone data plan? or any data plan for that matter? Id love to be able to buy it without adding data.

Ha Ali the the C7 is rumored to replace the Nuron on some web sites. If it does hopefully it will keep the same requirements as the Nuron, which is $10 data plan. You can buy the the Nuron without a data plan to, but I am hoping it will replace the prepaid model.

I have a C7. It’s a very good device! With the last firmware update OTA into the PR1.1 the performance and reliability growths enormous. If you think to by a device fpr your wife and you… do it :-).
And the best service at all… OVI maps. With the update to 3.06 one of the best versions.
