Other features include GPS, Wi-Fi, A2DP, microSD support, and built-in instant messaging and a more robust email client. It will come in a tri-band HSDPA 850/1900/2100 variant for North American markets. It is expected to hit the street by the end of the third quarter for $489.

It runs S60 5th Edition and has a 2.9-inch screen, 3.2 megapixel camera with autofocus and flash, proximity sensor, accelerometer, and support for 16GB microSD cards. It has A2DP and Wi-Fi, but is limited to EDGE data. It should be available during the third quarter.
