Nokia announces the Astound (C7) for T-Mobile
posted by Ken N. / Mar 21, 2011, 6:05 PM
The Astound for T-Mobile shares the Symbian^3 operating system, 8 megapixel camera, dual-LED flash, 720p video recording, 3.5-inch AMOLED with 640x360 resolution, an FM radio, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, and 8GB of internal memory.
There are, however, some noteworthy additions to the earlier C7 design. Most notably, there is a portrait QWERTY keypad, Swype text entry, split-screen text input, and free turn-by-turn navigation from Ovi Maps.
As earlier rumors suggested, the Astound will be available on April 6, for the price of $79.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate.

I have used this phone and find it to be one heck of a phone. When it is in the store you will find it fast and capable. The hard thing for most users will be the lack of heavy application development for Symbian. It is a wonderful size and the display looks really clean.

i urge people who dont like this phone to go ahead, when it hits the stores, mingle with it for 15,20,30 min and then jump to conclusions... i personally can tell u few things... Symbian OS did most of the things todays os'es do way back in 2004... Thats why it is still the king of the world... wooooooorrrrrddddd....

Who on Earth would upgrade to this phone??? It is on a operating system that the manufacture is no longer going to support and already it has been pubilically stated that if the AT&T - T-Mobile purchase goes through, AT&T will require all former T-Mobile 3G phone users to get a new phone. Why upgrade to a new phone now???
