Today Nokia announced the Surge, a QWERTY-equipped sideways slider that will be available from AT&T starting July 19. It has quad-band GSM/EDGE, 850/1900 WCDMA/HSDPA, and Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP and FM radios on board. According to Nokia, the Surge is aimed at users of social networks and it offers most forms of messaging, including AT&T's Video Share service and the ability to post to social networks via the JuiceCaster application. The Surge has 3G, GPS, a 2 megapixel camera, and a Flash-enabled web browser. The Surge runs S60 3rd Edition. It will cost $80 after rebate with new agreement (which requires a $40 voice plan and $30 data plan).
