At the Nokia E72 launch party it was announced that the device was going to be released by TELUS on July 11th… however it seems that the date was pushed up as it’s now available. As we stated earlier it’s got some good price points to it:

3-year contract: $99.99
2-year contract: $249.99
1-year contract: $299.99
No contract is $349.99

Specs of the E72 are that it has a 2.4 inch display with a resolution of 240 x 320, full QWERTY keyboard, has a 600 mhz processor, 3.5 mm headset jack, 5 megapixel camera with a front-camera for video calling, auto-focus and flash, built-in GPS, WiFi.

Also, here’s a quick overview of the E72:

    the irony of smartphones is they’re used by really dumb people. thats the rule. phones like this one are perhaps the exception. anyone engaged in genuine daily business will always prefer a b.berry or nokia over touchscreen gadgets. lets face it, those devices are only bought so that others know u can afford one.

    Can someone tell me how difficult it would be to debrand a Telus phone and use it on the Rogers network? I really want an E72.

  • xaueious

    More ‘smartphones’ for the dumb.

  • EraqEE

    Seems like a pretty solid phone, though I didn’t like the keyboard of the E71 so I hope this one is better!

  • Sid

    @Jordan, for Nokia phones, it’s not very difficult at all. It was pretty quick and simple to unbrand my Rogers E71 so that I could get the firmware updates. All the instructions you need can be found in

    Nokia biz phones are under-rated, but isn’t the 3-yr price a little high? This will make bb and even iphone a better buy.

  • Jim

    Now if we can find the roll out date for Saskatchewan and Manitoba’s HSPA network.
    I would hate to buy a new phone only to have the network switch over the next day.
