Nokia E7 Video Review
      #40306 - 03/29/11 02:54 PM

Though Nokia has announced they'll be making Windows phones that we'll see sometime in 2012, they've still got a few high end Symbian tricks up their sleeve. Their latest flagship Symbian 3 phone is the E7, the keyboarded companion to the Nokia N8.

The E7 runs Symbian^3 on a 680MHz ARM11 CPU. It has a 4", 640 x 360 AMOLED display that's very sharp and colorful, and pentaband 3G HSDPA. That means this unlocked GSM world phone will work not only on GSM/EDGE but 3G on most all the world's carriers including AT&T and T-Mobile here in the US. The Nokia is available for pre-order unlocked with no contract for $679 direct from

The hardware is simply marvelous: the metal body, perfectly machined edges, pleasing curves and materials are best in class. The OS and user interface, not so much. A few years ago, Symbian ^3 would have looked and felt accessible though not brilliant, and now it's just too outclassed by iOS, Android and webOS.

On the upside, call quality is the usual Nokia excellence, the 8 megapixel camera takes super shots even if it is a little outclassed by the N8's 12MP shooter, and the keyboard is a joy to type on. The hinge is beautifully designed with no unwanted play.

Here's Nokia E7 video review:
