It was nearly six months ago that Nokia announced the Nokia E7. It was late last month that Nokia started taking pre-orders for the E7 in Finland and Sweden. Today, the company has started shipping the first batch of E7 to all those people who pre-ordered the handset.
The Nokia E7 is the un-official successor to the Communicator series from the Finnish giant. The E7 sports a 4CBD (ClearBlack Display) with a resolution of 360×640. The handset is powered by an ARM11 680MHz processor along with a Broadcom graphics chip. The back of the handset sports an 8MP camera with dual-LED flash. The phone packs 256MB of RAM and 16GB of on-board storage memory along with a microSD card slot.
The handset sports the usual Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth along with a mini-HDMI port. Even though the Nokia E7 is aimed at business users, it is clearly visible that the handset not lack in the multimedia department. Like the N8, the E7 is made up of anodized aluminum as well and features USB OTG (On-The-Go) as well.
As of now, the E7 is available only at selected retail stores and should be available worldwide by Feb 16 for a whopping â‚¬599. Hopefully, the price of the device will go down after a month or so.
