It shouldn't come as much of a surprise that the E62
was namechecked in the slew of Cingular material we got today, but we also managed to land some additional information not
from Boy Genius. Looks like the E62 is set to drop on Cingy on or around September/October if not earlier (we hear business accounts could get their units in June/July), and will set you back
$299 without a contract, or as little as
$199 with a two year. Still a pretty hefty cost for the castrated non-UMTS, non-WiFi verion of the E61
, but it'll still be ready and willing to take on just about any push email solution under the sun, and considering what it's up against in the US market, this guy still ain't half bad.Update:
our source on the prices sent us some new information, which has the E62 weighing in at $299 without a contract and $199 with a two year -- a totally compelling development which would have Cingular and Nokia taking dead aim at Verizon and Motorola's Q. Guess we'll have to wait this one out.
