Amazon Opens Nokia E6 Pre-Orders For Summer Delivery

It’s not much fun being a Nokia fan in the US. Sure, you see a few of its smartphones picked up by carriers, like the C7 / Astound, but they’re the exceptions that prove the rule. One of the company’s latest Symbian-powered handsets, the E6, just started shipping at the end of May, but only to markets in Europe, Eurasia, Asia/Pacific, the Middle East and Africa; Antarctica aside, pretty much everywhere but the Americas. Soon even those smartphone users will get a chance to pick up an E6, since Amazon has opened pre-orders for the device, with plans to start delivering them in the next month or two.

An E6 on Amazon will set you back $446, which isn’t too bad for a brand-new unsubsidized smartphone. Sure, the screen’s a little small at 2.46 inches, but its high pixel density lets it pull of VGA resolution. The big draw for the E6 is the newly-updated Symbian Anna operating system, currently available only on the E6 and the X7. Though it will be available as an upgrade to other recently-released Nokias in the future, if you want the improved browser speed and other enhancements it offers, you’ll need to pick up one of those two smartphones.

The E6 supports both AT&T and T-Mobile 3G bands, so you shouldn’t have any trouble getting service for the phone once it arrives this summer.
