Smartfans have been given their closest look yet at the Nokia X7 in a comprehensive video walkthrough courtesy of 3, raising expectations the handset will make its debut at tomorrow’s Nokia press call.

As well as confirming the X7's spec sheet (think: eight megapixel snapper, four-inch display and HD video recording), the clip focuses principally on the new iteration of Symbian powering the phone.
According to 3’s gadget guru, the new take on Nokia’s proprietary OS makes accessing your home screen and apps a lot faster. It’s also reportedly home to a new browser that’s “three times faster than the old Symbian browser”.
Nokia’s April 12th event has been billed a glimpse at the future of Symbian, as the beleaguered phone-maker looks to reignite interest in the platform amid mass migration of smartphone buyers to Apple’s iOS and Android.
Perceived problems with Symbian as it stands are that’s it’s unduly fiddly, awkward and insufficiently user-friendly. And frankly, it's hard not to concur.
