Nokia Astound Unboxing

Nokia may be throwing most of their eggs into the Windows Phone 7 basket, but they're pushing Symbian until the end.  Aaron does an unboxing of the Nokia Astound, which is essentially a carrier-branded version of the Nokia C7-00 shown off at Nokia World last fall.  It offers a 3.5-inch display, 8-megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording capabilities, front-facing shooter with Qik pre-installed, Bluetooth 3.0, and Symbian^3.  It lands at T-Mobile on April 6th for $79.99.

It's nice to see Nokia picking up carrier partnerships (they need every one they can get), but Symbian is clearly on its last leg.  Is it a viable option given T-Mobile's Android-heavy lineup?
