T-Mobile has followed through on a promised April 6th release of its Astound -- a Symbian^3 device from Nokia -- adding yet another option to the carrier's venerable lineup of smartphones. We've already broken this one down in recent months, but in case you've been forced under a rock here lately, a recap awaits: the device features a 3.5-inch AMOLED display, an impressive 8 megapixel shooter with dual-LED flash, and a front-facing camera for Qik video chatting. The re-branded C7 also serves up your data connection by way of USB tethering and WiFi (though sadly, not at 4G speed). It's altogether likely to be one of Nokia's last homegrown creations to grace the 'polka dot' network, and at $79.99 after rebate, the Astound appears to be a fitting swan song, indeed.
