AT&T Breaks the E71x, then delays it.

Over the weekend there was a lot of excitement over the fact that this was going to be the week that AT&T would finally start selling Nokia’s masterpiece, the E71x, but alas the news was too good to be true. With today being the scheduled release date, and no E71x in sight qwerty loving S60 fans across the country had their dreams smashed. According to BGR the trouble comes from a bug in the email or exchange synching software. I find this pretty hard to believe, I have been using an unlocked E71 with exchange since Thanksgiving (late November for those of you outside the U.S.) and have never had a problem with synching at all, and on top of that Nokia has sold millions of these phones around the world for nearly a year. If there was a problem with something as vital as email synch, I’m sure someone besides the guys at AT&T would have spotted it by now. While I am disappointed that my fellow countrymen will be denied such a great phone for an extra few weeks, this really questions what AT&T did to this great phone that would break it.
