The FCC today approved the Nokia N75, an S60 smartphone for Cingular with external music controls and multimedia capabilities. The manual confirms that the N75 can download music from Plays For Sure sites when connected to a computer using Windows Media Player 10. However the manual also reveals that users will be able to download music directly to their phone over the air. The software allows subscribers to choose a music store and enter a username and password for that site, hinting it may work with more than one store. The manual also reveals that Cingular will sell music videos in addition to audio. The N75 is a clamshell with quad-band GSM / EDGE as well as dual band UMTS (3G). It features a QVGA screen, Bluetooth, 2 Megapixel camera and MicroSD card slot.

Nokia build quality
6682 was a good example of a 'higher end' phone I thought could have had tighter build tolerances.
I enjoy Nokia's and hope N75 is a solid phone.

Does anyone else have an issue with the build quality of some Nokia's as of the past couple of years? Specifically the plastics used.
