Remember the Nokia 6282
, a Series 40 slider that -- once upon a time, anyway -- was supposed to be Nokia's first 3G device for North America? Of course, one thing led to another
, and before you know it, here we are in mid-2007 just now
celebrating Finland's finest adding UMTS to a device for these shores. Crazy how time flies, isn't it? A sharp-eyed tipster picked up an accessory pack from his friendly local AT&T shop and noticed this little gem, a fine-print mention of that long lost 6282. Is it even remotely possible that the carrier has plans to resurrect the phone? We think not -- the accessory pack has probably been sitting around since olden times when naive middle managers at Cingular believed such a promising device (for its day) would ever see the light of day. Of course, stranger things have happened, but we're not getting our hopes up here.
