Nokia's N75 phone has finally arrived at AT&T's online website for $200 with a 2-year contract.
But surprisingly, shortly after the new phone was offered on sale, AT&T removed it.
The new phones had not actually arrived in the distribution center. In a statement, Nokia said that the phone's
arrival at AT&T was imminent.
The Nokia N75 phones were initially expected to be available in the fourth quarter of 2006.
The new mobile device offers UMTS speeds for multimedia downloads, a 2-megapixel camera, quad-band access for
international use, an HTML Web browser, Bluetooth and other popular features.
In a statement on April 21, Nokia said that the phone's delay was due to operator testing.
Nokia's CEO Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo said in a statement "we are investing heavily in upgrading our U.S.
position by simply tailoring products to the U.S. operators."
He added "here, AT&T definitely is the most important target for Nokia."
