Nokia 6555 at ATT
Confirming a recent FCC leak, wireless carrier AT&T today became the first North American provider to pick up the Nokia 6555. True to expectations, the phone runs on the US company's HSDPA network at 3G speeds; a CV button immediately switches the device into AT&T's video streaming services, and a committed MEdiaNet key accesses constantly updated Internet news feeds. The carrier-specific phone also taps into MP3 and WMA subscription services from eMusic and Napster as well as live audio streaming across the Internet from XM Satellite Radio.
Hardware is identical to the phone just announced last month, with a signature seamless body that eliminates the uncomfortable feel at the hinge, a 16 million color LCD richer than most displays, and a 1.3-megapixel camera. Storage is capped at up to 2GB with a microSD card. AT&T sells the phone beginning today at a price of $50 with a two-year service plan and a $50 rebate.
