Nokia Surge at ATT

AT&T began its week early by launching the Nokia Surge, a unique handset just for the US carrier. The device is designed like a typical QWERTY slider messaging phone but runs on Symbian S60 and gets access to the full roster of smartphone-class apps as a result. It's pitched as a social networking device and comes with a JuiceCaster app for posting both updates and media to Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and elsewhere.

Hardware itself is strictly low- to mid-range for smartphones to keep the price accessible, and centers on a 2-megapixel camera, 3G data and assisted GPS through the TeleNav-run AT&T Navigator service. A microSDHC slot provides the brunt of storage and recognizes cards up to 8GB.

Reflecting its focus, the Surge undercuts the more feature-rich iPhone 3G in price and will be available for $80 after rebate on a two-year plan when it ships on July 19th.
