Nokia 6780 AT&T in July
First spotted just over a month ago, the Nokia 6790 Surge got a one-month delay in its launch date at wireless provider AT&T. While an exact date is not announced, sources believe the phone, which used to go by the codename Mako, will appear sometime in mid-July. Some preliminary specs of the sliding QWERTY handset include a 2.4-inch, 240x320 display, and quad-band GSM and dual-band HSDPA support. The Surge is also one of a handful of mid-range Nokia phones equipped with the smartphone-grade Symbian S60 operating system.
Also expected are a 2-megapixel camera, assisted GPS functionality, Bluetooth 2.0, and 128MB of on-board memory that is supplanted by a microSD expansion slot. A 2.5mm headset jack lets users connect wired headphones or headsets. Pricing, however, remains unknown. [via BGR]
