GSM network has picked up a couple goodies that we thought our friends north of the border might be interested to hear about. First up, Fido gets the Nokia E62
, bringing some QWERTY S60 action to the carrier's stable, something Cingular customers have been enjoying for a while now
-- and like its American counterpart, Fido gets the dumbed-down version sans UMTS rather than the original E61
. Next up is the Z710i
from Sony Ericsson, a decent midrange clamshell rocking a 2 megapixel cam and a rather portly exterior monochrome display. Look for both in stores now; the E62 will run you $200 CDN (about $170) on a three (yes, three
) year contract, while the Z710i will go for $75 (about $64) on the same brutally lengthy agreement -- thank goodness for early upgrades.
[Thanks, Francis P.]Update:
Yep, it seems the Z610i has been kicking around for a little while up there (which is more we can say for any American carrier).
