The Nokia E62 features include:

  • 320×240 screen with 16 million colors
  • QWERTY keyboard with backlighting
  • Several email solutions, including Good Mobile Messaging, Cingular Xpress Mail, BlackBerry Connect, Mail for Exchange and regular POP/IMAP/SMTP
  • Quadband GSM plus EDGE
  • miniSD slot
  • S60 version 3 (Symbian 9)

Cingular will exclusively begin shipping the E62 on September 29th. Perhaps the most surprising news is price, as low as $149.99. This puts it in direct competition with the Motorola Q and significantly under the Treo's price point.
