First it got small; now, it's getting chic. Nokia's most diminutive smartphone, the E50
candybar, is being re-released in fabulous "Metal Black" (read: black) toward the tail end of this quickly waning year. As a refresher, the business-oriented E50 does quad-band GSM plus EDGE, a 320 x 240 display, 1.3 megapixel cam, and microSD expansion all sitting atop S60 3rd Edition. Sadly, it looks like the Metal Black version will only be seeing a limited release in "select markets," but we reckon importers wouldn't last very long in this business if they couldn't figure out how to get a few stateside.
