Nokia E7 Now Available For Pre-Order

After what has seemed to be forever, the Nokia E7 is currently available for pre-order in the Nokia USA store. Of course you’ll have to wait until the beginning of April until devices start shipping, that is if you choose to ignore some of the previous issues Nokia has had with getting devices in the hands of pre-ordering consumers before those who simply purchase on the day of availability. For $679.00 USD you’ll be getting the latest E-series device which packs a 4CBD — the largest screen on a Nokia device, as well as the usual slew of options for connectivity including WLAN (802.11b/g/n), Bluetooth 3.0 and penta-band 3G. Unlike many previous Nokia devices, the E7 has a limited 16GB of storage, that is, there is no microSD slot. Both the N8 and E7 support USB-on-the-Go which allows you to use an adapter to connect regular sizes USB thumb drives to your phone. The standard affair 8MP camera is on board, but again Nokia continues the trend of slightly limiting the device by opting for an Extended Depth of Field lens which does not support macro mode or focusing. Of course, like all recent Nokia devices, the E7 ships with Symbian^3 and has full support for Exchange, Office file editing and free lifetime navigation with Ovi Maps.The E7 is the latest Nokia device to feature a full sized QWERTY keyboard hidden behind a hinge that positions the screen at an optimal viewing angle. Constructed from anodised aluminum and gorilla glass, the E7 features a built-in 1200mAH battery that is not user-replaceable as well as a mini HDMI (Type C) port, a microUSB port and a camera capable of capturing HD video. Nokia says they will be supporting Symbian with firmware updates and the E7 is sure to continue with the trend. If you’re an avid Symbian user and appreciate having a full QWERTY keyboard, perhaps the Nokia E7 is right for you.
