About a month back I showed you guys the differences between the Nokia E71x vs. the unlocked E71. While I'm sure I didn't get everything, the main points were covered. Well thanks to Timi Cantisano (not yet announced E71 fanatic writer) we now know the E71x is officially available from AT&T.
After whats seems like months of leaked pictures, specs, rumors and even someone being able to buy a prototype of the device off of CraigsList! the Nokia E71x has appeared on the ATT Website and is available for purchase. Finally ATT customers will be able to experience a quality mobile device made by Nokia. The Nokia E71x is set at a price of $99.99 after $50 dollar mail-in rebate (with 2 year activation). An amazing price for a great phone. Those looking to buy the device out right will also be glad to know that it will retail for $299.99.
