Earlier today Nokia officially unveiled the Nokia E7 at Nokia World 2010, this smartphone features a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and runs Symbian^3, I must say it looks a lot more desirable than any Symbian-based QWERTY slider I have ever seen from Nokia.
Spec wise the E7 is impressive, it features a 4-inch touchscreen display which utilizes Nokia’s new ClearBlack Display technology, it also features an 8 megapixel camera capable of 720p HD video capture and 16GB of internal storage, sadly there is no memory card slot.
It looks as if this device will be going up against business devices such as the BlackBerry Torch 9800, you can create PowerPoint slides and connect to Exchange mail servers (can sync multiple calendars, notes and contacts from Outlook). Other software includes Adobe PDF reader, F-Secure Anti-theft, IBM Lotus Notes Traveler and Quickoffice dynamic premium.
In terms of design when it is closed it looks a lot like the Nokia N8, however it is slightly thicker at 13.6mm, the extra keyboard and larger display means that battery life does suffer a little as it offers 540 minutes of talk time from one charge, whereas the N8 offers 720 mins.
We have embedded a picture of the Nokia E7 towards the end of this post, if you want to see more check out Engadget’s photo gallery.
I’m sure over the next few days we will find out more about the E7, therefore we will keep you posted, for more details check out the source link below.
Do you think the Nokia E7 will be held back by Symbian^3?
