Nokia E71x

A couple of days before CTIA 2009, AT&T announced that it will offer the Nokia E71x for a very affordable $99.99 with a two-year contract. The exact release date was not announced, but both companies say it will be in the "coming weeks."

Similar to the Nokia E71

The E71x is very similar to the unlocked version of the Nokia E71. Design-wise, the main difference is that the E71x comes in black rather than a gray.

AT&T apps

The smartphone also supports several AT&T services, such as AT&T Navigator and AT&T Music. Other features of the Symbian smartphone include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth connectivity, HSDPA support, and a 3.2-megapixel camera.

QWERTY keyboard

Overall, the Nokia E71x's QWERTY keyboard is pretty easy to use. The buttons are fairly large with nice, tactile feedback. Given the slim form factor, the layout of the keyboard is slightly cramped so users with larger thumbs might run into some problems.

Backside

On the back of the smartphone, you'll find the 3.2-megapixel camera. It can also record video and has a number of other advanced features, such as autofocus, an LED flash, exposure compensation, and digital zoom.
