Nokia and T-Mobile are proving to be quite a pair when it comes to delivering smartphones at an affordable price. First, there was the Nokia Nuron and now there's the Nokia E73 Mode.

The E73 Mode is a QWERTY messaging smartphone (Nokia's thinnest to date) that will be available starting June 16 for just $69.99 with a two-year contract and after a mail-in rebate. Nokia is calling the smartphone a "work and life solution" and for the price, you get a nice range of features.

This includes the full gamut of wireless options, Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync support, a full HTML Web browser with Flash support, and a 5-megapixel camera. In addition, the E73 Mode offers free voice-guided navigation via Ovi Maps and comes preloaded with the Ovi Store. Like the Nuron, you'll be able to bill any app purchases to your monthly T-Mobile bill or credit card.

We've already requested a review unit, so be sure to check back soon for our verdict, but so far, it sounds like a great deal to us!
