Already popular in Europe, Nokia is going to release a variant of its E6x series in the U.S.
Released only through Cingular, the E62 will bring many of the features offered by the Motorola Q to the GSM audience. However, unlike the Q, the E62 will use the Symbian OS with the S60 user interface, and it will therefore be more phone-centric.
This will be a slightly downgraded version of the Nokia E61. Unlike its predecessor, the upcoming model will lack Wi-Fi and WCDMA support. It will include EDGE and Bluetooth, though.
The E62 will measure about just about 0.5 inches thick, with a fully QWERTY keyboard (similar to BlackBerries and Treos) below its 320-by-240-pixel landscape-mode screen.
The E62 will be available starting September 29 from Cingular for $149.99 with contract.
