Not a big surprise but Nokia confirmed today that the Nokia E63 is headed to the United States (and hopefully Canada as well) in the coming weeks.
“Consumers have stated loud and clear that there is a demand for devices with a QWERTY form factor that are optimized for the United States,” said Alessandro Lamanna, Vice President of Sales, Retail, Nokia Americas.
The Nokia E63 NAM will run the Symbian OS 9.2 with S60 3.1 Edition and will come with quad-band (850/900/1800/1900MHz) GSM/GPRS/EDGE and dual-band (850/1900MHz) UMTS/HSDPA connectivity, a 2.36-inch QVGA display, 110 MB internal dynamic memory, a QWERTY thumb keyboard, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, a 2MP camera, microSDHC (up to 8GB) memory card slot, a 3.5mm stereo headset jack, and a 1500mAh battery.
