CTIA 2009: Live Report

Nokia E71x (AT&T)

Here it is - the much-anticipated and not that elusive Nokia smart phone, the E71x. The handset is an AT&T variety of the standard E71, only slightly modified. It has a darket color to begin with plus the camera for video conversations is now missing. AT&T has left its mark as well, since you are to find all the standard goodies of the carrier here.

It’s not that it isn’t nice, but we just aren’t too excited over the E71x’s timing, maybe because of its rather untimely market appearance (has not happened yet). It is smart, it is thin, but there is nothing really special about it. As we have come to think of it, it´s far more exciting to watch on the leaked photos than in reality, really.

Nokia 1661 (T-Mobile)

In a nutshell – the Nokia 1661 is a entry level candy-bar phone with a small display and a standard numeric keypad. First, what is the  most conservative form-factor that comes to mind? Second, take its unusually small display, given the today’s standards, then throw a traditional numeric keypad into the deal and what you get is called the Nokia 1661. If you think this isn’t enough for the average user – Nokia doesn’t. And who needs a camera anyway?!

Now seriously, ultra-low-end handsets do need to be available in the catalogue of every manufacturer. The 1661 is exactly this kind of device.

Yeah, come on Big Red, show us something new besides your "new" app store and The Hub. I'm looking for some new phones.
