The writing was on the wall following Nokia's official withdrawal from Japan
, and sure enough, NTT DoCoMo has now officially nixed plans to bring the E71
to market early next year. In a product lineup flush with wide VGA displays, giant cameras, and happiness generators, we suspect the QVGA QWERTY set won't be sorely missed by most over there -- and hey, that just means more E71s for the rest of us. Anyone need a second or a third?
