During the Nokia World 2010, the Finnish giant announced the biiiiggg’ Nokia E7. The E7 sports a huge 4-inch screen with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Many people consider it to be the successor to the last Communicator’ E90. When Nokia announced the handset, the company said that the device will hit the retail stores before the year end.
However, now All About Phones is reporting that Nokia has delayed its highly anticipated handset to early 2011.
Apparently, the reason for the delay is a minor durability issuewith the E7 hardware. However, due to the delay the E7 will be missing the holiday shopping season now I am pretty sure the sales of the handsets are going to take a hit.
Also, next year we will be seeing the launch of some awesome Android devices with NVidia Tegra 2 processors. I seriously wonder how the E7 will be able to compete with them next year.
