NOKIA 6760 SURGE: FULL QWERTY SLIDE KEYBOARD FASTEST 3G NETWORK
It was leaked as Nokia Mako. Nokia has announced it today as Nokia Surge. It available from AT&T this July 19. The phone comes with a full slide-out QWERTY keyboard, Symbian S60 multi-tasking capabilities and also the capability to post messages, images, videos, and comments to web sites like Facebook on-the-go with the pre-installed JuiceCaster application. The phone comes with a 16M colors 2.4-inch display screen, built in Bluetooth, 2.5mm headphone jack, 2.0-megapixel camera, FM radio, a microSD card slot and supporting Quadband GSM network and HSDPA 2.6Mbps wireless data connection.

 check out the Nokia Surge, the nokia new smartphone for AT&T Wireless. In a twist,In fact, it’s actually Nokia’s third smartphone for AT&T in the past 12 months; the first two were the Nokia 6650 and the E71x. That’s significant because it signals a change in Nokia’s strategy; up until recently, Nokia’s diverse lineup of unlocked smartphones have barely made a dent in the U.S. marketplace due to their high upfront cost.
 
That said, Nokia is aiming the Surge at a younger demographic than the E71x. The big news is the Surge’s thin, squat form factor, as if it endured a few passes of a rolling pin. It’s made almost entirely of black gloss plastic and accumulates fingerprints like crazy. The handset measures 3.8 by 2.3 by 0.6 inches and weighs 4.4 ounces. But it felt lighter in the hand than I had expected.

A slide-out, horizontal QWERTY keyboard spans the width of the unit. In fact, the entire handset is oriented horizontally, down to the AT&T and Nokia logos and the asymmetrical front panel. As a result, it looks a little weird when holding it vertically. The keyboard’s squarish keys felt a bit cheap, but they offered a pleasant, clicky resistance despite their flat look. The slide mechanism itself was smooth but also felt a little chintzy.
 
The power button doubles as the End key, which is a departure from other Nokia handsets. The Surge’s five-way control pad was a little smaller and harder to press than I normally like, but I adjusted pretty quickly. Plenty of buttons adorn the unit’s sides, including a messaging shortcut key on the front for texting fiends. Given that most horizontal sliders only rotate the screen when you slide out the keyboard, the Surge’s responsive accelerometer was a nice touch. The QVGA screen was sharp and bright, but its 320-by-240-pixel resolution and simple menu graphics felt aged compared with an iPhone 3G or BlackBerry Bold.
 
As a proper AT&T device, the Surge features support for the TeleNav-powered AT&T Navigator. That’s a step up from Nokia’s confusing, proprietary GPS software, such as what came with the unlocked Nokia N78 last year. The Surge also features CV for streamed videos, and Nokia’s standard-issue Mini Map browser.
 
There are some minor nods to the younger target market, such as JuiceCaster support, some built-in games, and support for AT&T Video Share. But even as such, the Surge is a genuine Symbian Series 60 Third Edition smartphone. It can multitask, it includes Quickoffice for editing Word and Excel documents, it works with Mail for Exchange 2.9, and it can be used as a 3G modem for a laptop. 
 
The 2-megapixel camera lacks auto-focus or an LED flash, but it’s capable of recording smooth QVGA videos. The non-standard, 2.5mm headphone jack is a bummer. The battery is the same 1500 mAh pack that comes with the Nokia N97 and E71x, which should put talk time in the four-and-a-half hour range.

New Symbian S60 Handset Offers Social Style with a Low Price Smartphone Capabilities
 
Now you can carry your clique with you in your pocket. AT&T* and Nokia today announced the availability of the Nokia Surge, a socially supercharged smartphone powered by the nation’s fastest 3G network.  the Nokia Surge is an ideal device for active consumers who like to stay connected whether using IM, text or email, sending multimedia messages, AT&T Video Share, or updating and connecting via their favorite social networks.
 
a slim, stylish design and Symbian S60 multi-tasking capabilities, Nokia Surge is the ideal smartphone for today’s customer who is always in touch with their social circle. A recent survey commissioned by Nokia revealed that people are so hooked on staying in touch that they would rather give up coffee and sweets than live without their mobile for two weeks.
 
In addition to an impressive suite of messaging capabilities, the Nokia Surge offers a powerful browsing experience, including Flash support to view most sites in full HTML or watch YouTube videos. Nokia Surge allows users to post messages, images, videos, and comments to web sites like Facebook on-the-go with the pre-installed JuiceCaster application.
 
“Launching at $79.99 with a complete email solution, downloadable applications and full HTML browser with Flash support, Nokia Surge hits the sweet spot between a quick messaging phone and a smartphone because of its low-price and strong feature set.” said Michael Woodward, vice president, Mobile Phone Portfolio, AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets.
 
“Designed in the U.S., this socially charged smartphone comes in a sleek slide form factor that supports social networking and messaging – and all on an open platform,” said David Petts, vice president and general manager, AT&T Account, Nokia. “Together with AT&T, we’re excited to address the increasing demand for smartphones with a device that’s as attractive to the customer as it is to his or her wallet.”

The Nokia Surge offers multimedia and entertainment features, including:
 
* 2.0 megapixel camera – Customers can capture quality photos with color camera and 4X digital zoom
* AT&T Navigator – AT&T Navigator provides audible turn-by-turn directions, monitors traffic and alerts users when there is a slowdown or incident
* AT&T Mobile Music – Customers can listen and download their favorite music from Napster Mobile, eMusic Mobile, XM Radio and more over the air
* AT&T Video Share — The first-ever service in the U.S. that allows users to share live video over wireless devices while participating in a voice call
* JuiceCaster – Customers can share videos and pictures from their wireless device to the Web’s most popular sites including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Flickr
 
It’s not just AT&T subscribers who get to enjoy the “distinctive” aesthetic charms of Nokia’s latest QWERTY featurephone; the Nokia 6760 Slide, already known as the AT&T Nokia Surge, will be making its debut in Q3 2009 for European buyers.  While the general look of the 6760 Slide is unchanged, the camera has seen a welcome boost from 2- to 3.2-megapixels.
 
 Other features include a 2.4-inch QVGA LCD display, up to 8GB microSD card support (with a 2GB card in the box) and A-GPS, along with Nokia’s mapping app with 3D landmarks and terrain mapping.  We’re guessing that Nokia have fettled the 6760 Slide’s 3G to work on Euro networks, so as to make the most of its Exchange email support, Facebook, Twitter and MySpace integration.
 
Battery life is rated as up to five hours talktime or 500 hours standby, and it will be available in black initially with white and red versions showing up later on in the year (country dependent).  It’s expected to retail for €199 ($283) before subsidies and taxes.
