After months on leaks, live images, official demoes, and even a review(!) the Nokia E66 and the E71 will finally be officially announced today, the 16th of June, at a business event in London. To my knowledge Rafe and Steve from AAS will be there and so will be Ben Smith from SMS Text News. So keep an eye on these sites for the latest. I can’t wait, just about 5 hours to go. I want the E71 – badly!
After months of anticipation, waiting, leaks, live pictures and even a review the E66 and E71 Demonstrations have finally gone live on the Nokia website. We’r not sure this is an ‘official launch’ or whether these demonstrations will be taken down as mistake, there are still no press releases or press photos too. But for what its worth Demos for both the E66 and E71 are up.
If this is actually the way Nokia are going to announce these phones, its a pity and they couldn’t have picked a worse time. Its iPhone week and hate it or love it you can’t ignore it, but this will surely mean that these two wonderful devices will not get their fair share of publicity. Whether or not will there be a glitzy launch or these phones just arrive unannounced remains to be seen, for now all we can do is check them out online. (via: Pasco)
These pictures are apparently from a convention held by an Italian operator TIM for dealers. After the FCC sighting yesterday and now this, the official announcement can’t be far!
It appears as if the sim free E71 will retail for 449 Euros and the E66 for 429 Euros. (That’s exorbitant! But may be its just the initial price for that region, I wish I could read Italian!))
As far as specifications go, S60 3rd FP1, 3.2M camera AF (with an LED flash) and GPS have been confirmed for both of them as well. E71 and E66 come with 1500mAh BP-4L and 1000mAh BL-4U batteries respectively. Nokia where is the official announcement? I love both these phones!
We heard about the Liam and Dora a while back and it finally looks like they will be a reality soon. Infact, as soon as tomorrow if the buzz floating around the blogosphere is to be believed. Meanwhile feast yourself on the lovely looking devices, the E66 looks slick!
The E71 on the other hand will have a 3.2 megapixel auto-focus camera, GPS navigation, built-in WiFi and HSDPA network support and all of this in a 112 x 57 x 10 mm body. 10mm – Wow! Jump below for pictures.
