Nokia E62 available on Cingular

Cingular just posted the Nokia E62 on its web site. It lacks Wifi like the E61 – but is still has a landscape QVGA, QWERTY, S60 3rd Edition action that made the original famous — and as expected, it’s gone live for a very reasonable $150 on contract Read on for the specs.
Besides the lack of 802.11, the E62 gives up the E61’s UMTS 2100 support, but Cingular’s guessing its average buyer isn’t going to mind.
