Admittedly, we had our fair share of panic attacks at Engadget HQ when news spread that Nokia might restrict sales
of its E70-2 (a standard-issue E70
with GSM 850 in place of UMTS 2100) to its two American flagship stores in New York and Chicago. Thankfully, those fears have all been laid to rest on news that sales have begun directly off Nokia's US website, offering the trick, S60 3rd Edition QWERTY candybar for a stiff $450 unlocked. Oh, and if you decide to take the plunge, rest easy -- the firmware bungle
has been cleared up.
