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).

$30 "data plan" = messaging + data unlimited??

That's what it looks like from my experience. It might just be required for the rebate (as in, only if you want to receive the rebate get that), which if it's what I'm thinking, that seems like a great deal!

I did play with a customer's phone (his son worked for Nokia) and the keyboard was pretty decent for the size. Not bad, Nokia.
Just 30 for internet NOT text....20 dollors more for txt.

$70 a month minimum without text..... WOW!

A smartphone for people not smart enough to know it. Face it, 9 out of 10 AT&T customers will never add another app to this phone and if you told them they had a S60 phone in their hand they would say, "No, its a Nokia". They will never know AT&T made Nokia leave out the wi-fi, cripple the GPS and only give them a puny 2mp. camera. I would bet they made them leave out the podcasting app too, (might use a little too much of AT&T's data).
So with text package your looking at $75 a month or $1,800 over 2 years. Thats a lot of money for this phone.
yea exactly what I was saying below you lol.
And who do you use? Eh?
...
Won't cost me 75/month-already have family text plan (30/month for 4 phones), line is 10 month. That would be 17.50 + 30=47.50. And tkboxer-why do you assume 9 out of 10 ATT customers are stupid?
...
if you buy the phone, wait for the rebate then call 611 and change the IMEI number to a 'regular' phone, you can tell them to add the 30 unlimited everything and just use it with this phone. no one will know!
i have done this with windows mobile and ...

The $30 PDA plan is for Business capable phones - ie, Exchange/Blackberry/Visto/etc mail capable. This has every indication of being a consumer device like the 6650 or the N75 of old.

I might be wrong, of course, but AT&T's press releases have bee...

$30 Data Plan???

Its nice but not that nice. Rather have the iPhone for a $30 data plan for $20 more for the phone.

Lacks Wifi.

Although, It's actually a decent looking device, spec-wise.

It looks nice..

but did AT&T wireless really need another Nokia smartphone? They really need to have one similar to this as a standard device to compete with the Samsung Impression and the LG Xenon in my personal opinion.
