Nokia’s upcoming business flagship smartphone, the E7, will be available to pick up on 3 from April, it has been confirmed.
3 posted on its official Twitter account: “We're going to range the #Nokia E7 :) Check out our coming soon page... http://ow.ly/47Uws.”
The E7 was unveiled at the Nokia World expo last year as a spiritual successor to the Nokia N900 Communicator, the handset that originally confirmed Nokia as the go-to brand for business-focussed smarties. It was expected to arrive to market in January, but has been continually delayed for unknown reasons. However, we caught up with Nokia recently to find out that the E7 is still alive and well and is being readied for launch next month.
Standout features of the phone include a capacious four-inch AMOLED touchscreen on a slide-out hinge mechanism and a full QWERTY keyboard inside for typing out fast emails and documents on the move. An eight-megapixel camera with dual LED flash and HD recording capabilities, plus 16GB of storage is also onboard.
Like the N8, the E7 runs on the Symbian3 operating system and comes preloaded with an array of apps and services such as a unified email client for multiple protocols, Mail for Exchange, QuickOffice dynamic premium, Adobe Reader, Ovi Maps with free GPS navigation and many more available to download from the Ovi Store.
There’s also gamut of connectivity options such as Wi-Fi 802.11 (b/g/n), Bluetooth 3.0, HDMI output and a microUSB port with USB on-the-go support that allows the handset to be used as a plug-and-play flash drive.
The Nokia E7 is due to go on sale next month. Although pricing details are still unconfirmed, you’ll know as soon we do.
