We were on the ground in sunny Orlando all week for CTIA Wireless 2011, the largest cell phone event in North America. Check out the news, liveblogs, and hands-on reports with new phones and more.
The action started Monday night, with the show wrapping up on Thursday, March 24.
The Astound is a C7-00, make no mistake about it. It even says C7 on the front. However Nokia has been busy tweaking the software since we last played with a C7, so read on to see what think of this rare Symbian phone for T-Mobile USA.
Nokia today announced the Astound for T-Mobile, a new name for the C7-00. The phone is largely identical to the C7-00 for the rest of the world, and will even say C7 on the phone itself, but will come with a slightly updated version of Symbian^3 that's faster, and has some pre-loaded software including Slacker radio and Swype predictive text entry, which works in both portrait and landscape modes. The phone sports an 8-megapixel main camera, 1.3-megapixel front camera with Qik for video chat, large nHD capacitive touch screen, and support for Wi-Fi calling. It will be available April 6 for $80 with two-year contract.
