It’s a little past Q2, but that’s okay, because according to Russ, the 6682 is available directly from Nokia USA. It definitely has the early adopter tax applied to it, weighing in at about 600 bucks.
I’m hoping that Cingular (or more likely) Let’s Talk or another reseller has it in stock so I can pick one up on contract (and hopefully at least take a couple hundred bucks off the list price). I really wish that I was in the position to drop $600 on this phone that I’ve been waiting for since it was announced, but that’s just not in the cards. Too much talk and not enough action on my part I guess. I am hoping to pick it up as soon as I can on contract, so I should be somewhere behind the affluent early adopters but before the masses.
Thanks for getting this one out the door Nokia, I look forward to snagging one.
I just re-read this post and I realized that it comes across a bit cranky. Sorry about that, yesterday was a long day.
According to the specs and what I’ve heard the 6682 is an awesome little phone. When I snagged my 3650 (again, after Russ but before most of the American blogosphere picked up on how much it rocked) list price was probaly close to if not at $600. Lucky for me it had been out just long enough to be free after rebates through Amazon.
Oh, 6682, you will be mine soon enough…
