It's somewhat hard to believe that Nokia's E72 smartphone actuallylaunched way back in June, and trust us, a lot has happened in themobile world since then. Even Nokia itself has shown off a newsmartphone OS (Maemo 5), but the tried and true Symbian S60 is poweringthis one. The E72 is a slim, broad candybar-styled smartphone with afull QWERTY keyboard that's always out in the open. According to Nokia,the wait to snag one has finally ended--if anyone was still waitingaround for it, that is.

This phone builds on the similar E71, maintaining the same basic formfactor but adding new functionality such as desktop-like email and chatexperiences. Morevoer, the latest version of Ovi Maps with A-GPSnavigation andcompass, an optical navi key and 5 megapixel camera are all packed intothe phone. You'll also find push consumer email service, NokiaMessaging, and now for the firsttime people can set up instant messaging (IM) directly from thehomescreen, accessing communities such as Windows Live(TM) Messenger,Yahoo! Messenger, Google Talk and Ovi Chat. Just like chatting via thedesktop, people can respond to friends and colleagues across multiplecommunities in real-time.

Amazon has the phone listed at $469 without a contract, though Nokia'sofficial announcement doesn't mention a specific price point.

Nokia makes good stuff.

I just can't see my big hands working those tiny little keys though.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
