AT&T's Nokia E71X set to launch next week


Some 8 months after the launch of the Nokia E71, the AT&T-branded E71x (which made its unauthorized internet debut four months ago) is finally set to hit the shelves next Tuesday.

According to BGR, AT&T locations from coast to coast began receiving boxes full of’em sometime in the past few days. Whispers from the inside are pinning the handset at $199 bucks after rebate, which seems a bit steep considering unlocked and unbranded versions can be found for just $100 bucks more online (though the E71x is purportedly running S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 2, while the E71 is stuck at Feature Pack 1 – for now.) Anybody out there going to be banging down AT&T’s doors come Tuesday morning?
