Thank goodness for the cellphone-addicts at Mobile-Review; it it wasn’t for them, we wouldn’t have the pleasure of blurry pre-announcement phones to make us think twice about that upgrade that an hour ago seemed inevitable.  Latest to slip out is what looks like the Nokia E62i – upgrade, obviously, to the E62 – complete with redesigned control-pad and extra buttons, a rear-mounted camera and, perhaps, a little less bulk around the belly.  It’s a cruel smartphone world out there, with models like the Samsung BlackJack making it seem like you have to be slim to be sexy.
