After unexplained delays, AT&T has officially launched the Nokia E71x smart device.
The Nokia E71x is nearly identical to the unlocked NAM E71 sold directly by Nokia save for AT&T branding and AT&T firmware which includes access to bespoke services such as Mail, Navigator, IM, XM, Music, CV, and mobiTV along with dual-band HSDPA, Wi-Fi radio, Bluetooth with stereo audio support, speakerphone, and 3.2 megapixel camera with flash along with a QVGA display, QWERTY keyboard, microSDHC slot, GPS support with voice control, and speakerphone.
It should be noted that this version does support Video Share, but does not feature a front-facing camera due to AT&T’s device requirements.
The device is now available for $299.99 with No Commitment or $149.99 after new 2 year agreement before an additional $50 mail-in rebate via prepaid Visa card, bringing the total to $99.99.
Update: Amazon is offering the E71x at a special $.01 price after instant rebates with free shipping for new customers and free activation credit until May 18th.
