AT&T is reported to have made a few announcements in regard to what it is preparing for the CTIA phone show in Las Vegas, while also allowing us to have a glimpse at what its users should expect to become available for them in the following few months. Among the devices that the mobile phone carrier has officially announced to soon come to its lineup we can count the Nokia E71x and the Samsung Propel Pro.
As many of you might already know, the Nokia E71x was expected to come to the carrier's lineup quite a while ago, yet it saw a series of delays that pushed it back longer than anticipated. The latest rumors on the matter suggested that the operator could launch the handset as soon as April 1, yet the Nokia E71x was delayed once again
, this time for around eight weeks, it appears.
Following the news, AT&T now seems to let us know than the handset is getting ready for launch, though it doesn't say exactly when. For what it's worth, this would be one of the first modern Nokia
smartphones to be heading towards the carrier's lineup, and it is expected to feature an all-black color scheme, as well as support for the operator's services such as AT&T Navigator with GPS, leaving aside the Nokia Maps.
The Nokia E71x
meant to reach AT&T at a certain point in the future should include a 3.2-megapixel photo snapper, as well as 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity. According to Electronista, AT&T should launch the handset in the following weeks, with an expected price tag of $100 with a two-year contract agreement and a rebate.
Samsung Propel Pro is yet another mobile phone that was reported a while ago to come to AT&T's lineup, and now more details on it seem to have surfaced into the wild. According to the above mentioned news site, the upgraded version of the Propel
messager should become available on the carrier's airwaves as soon as April 14.
The ready-to-come Samsung Propel Pro
should feature Windows Mobile 6.1, a chrome-trimmed shell with a new joystick-like control pad. Other specs of the device include a 3-megapixel camera, along with Wi-Fi connectivity and 3G support. There is also compatibility with AT&T's typical mapping, music and video services, while the price of the handset should be $150 upon the signing of a two-year contract agreement with the carrier.
