Well, I'll be darned, look who finally showed up on Cingular/AT&T's doorstep: the Nokia N75. After months and months (and months) of waiting, the music-centric, 3G-loving N75 appeared on the carrier's Web site today and with very little fanfare might we add. This is just a bit curious seeing as how much hype and interest the smart phone got prelaunch, and also a bit peculiar since it seems the N75's product page is now gone from the Cingular Web site. We know it wasn't just wishful thinking on our part, because we were able to grab a screenshot of the page, and several other sources, including the Boy Genius Report and Phone Scoop, reported on the announcement as well. Hmm, did someone at Cingular/AT&T just get a little trigger happy? Come on, you're killing us here!
We're not sure what's going on, but we're trying to get some official details from the carrier. In the meantime, here are some details on Nokia N75 that we grabbed during its brief, shining moment in the spotlight:
- High-speed data access over UMTS network, but no HSDPA support; works with Cingular Video and Cingular Music
- 2-megapixel camera with up to 10x zoom and video recording
- Supports Windows Media DRM and is compatible with Napster and Yahoo Music
- Dual speakers for 3D surround sound
- Speakerphone, voice dialing, and voice commands
- Integrated Bluetooth
- Runs S60 platform on the Symbian operating system
The Nokia N75 was listed for $199.99 with a two-year contract. Out of curiosity, is anyone seeing the N75 on the Cingular Web site? Let us know.
