NTT Docomo cancels Nokia E71 handset launch in Japan

NTT Docomo has cancelled its planned launch of the docomo PRO series Nokia E71 handset due to Nokia’s decision to terminate sales of all Japan-specific handsets through Japanese operators.

NTT Docomo had previously announced on November 5 its plan to release Nokia’s thin smartphone with QWERTY keyboard sometime between February and March 2009.
