When Nokia first announced the N75, it was clear this slim S60 smartphone was intended to be released in North America. However, that announcement was in September of last year, and some began to wonder if this device would ever hit the market.
The long wait is finally over: AT&T (formerly Cingular) is now offering the N75.
The base price is $400, but that goes down to $250 if the purchaser signs up for a two-year contract. An additional $50 mail-in rebate is also available.

An Overview of the Nokia N75
This 3G smartphone uses a clamshell design that’s 3.74 inches by 2.5 inches by 0.80 inches when closed. Opening it up reveals its 2.4-inch, 320-by-240-pixel screen and number pad.
The N75 has a heavy emphasis on music, and includes buttons on its exterior for controlling its audio player. It also has a 1.36-inch color display on the outside for displaying information on song files, which can be in any of the following formats: MP3, M4A, AAC, eAAC+ and WMA.
To hold audio files, it has 40 MB of internal storage, which can be expanded with an optional microSD card.
As another music option, the N75 includes a stereo FM radio, allowing users to listen to radio stations through regular or Bluetooth headphones. The integrated 3D stereo speakers are another option.
This smartphone has a built-in 2-megapixel camera which offers both JPEG/EXIF image and MPEG-4 video capture.
The Nokia N75 has been designed to work on 3G (WCDMA 850/1900 MHz), EDGE, and GSM (850/900/1800/1900 MHz) networks.
