Nokia E71 for Rogers

Rogers Wireless today became the first North American carrier to officially pick up the Nokia E71. The full QWERTY smartphone should take advantage of the Canadian provider's HSPA network and should be the thinnest smartphone available through the carrier. It should also carry the other features of the high-end device, including its 3.2-megapixel camera, GPS and Wi-Fi. Storage is handled mostly through microSDHC cards.

The Symbian S60 device will be one of Rogers' few non-Windows Mobile alternatives for Exchange data and has the unique addition of separate personal and work home screens that keep their content separate from each other.

Pricing, release dates and Rogers-specific features aren't available for the custom adaptation of Nokia's handset, though the Rogers version of the N95 8GB added VISION support for two-way video calling and custom access to Rogers' media store. The carrier also heavily subsidized the earlier device and is likely to do the same for the E71, which otherwise costs about $500 in the US as an unlocked model.
