Last year, Nokia announced the E7 business phone at the Nokia World 2010 in London. This handset is powered by the Symbian^3 operating system and it comes with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. This handset was expected to launch in this month, but it was delayed for some unknown reasons. But we have a good news for the folks living in Finland and Sweden. The much awaited Nokia E7 communicator is finally up for pre-order in the Nokia’s home country, Finland and its neighboring country, Sweden.
Nokia E7 comes with a large 4 inch touchscreen display with 640 x 360 pixels resolution, Symbian^3 OS, 680 MHz processor, slide-out QWERTY keyboard, 8 megapixel camera with dual LED flash, HD (720p) video recording, 16v GB internal storage, 256 MB RAM, 1 GB ROM, MicroUSB 2.0, 3G Connectivity, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, A-GPS, FM Radio, Music Player, 3.5 mm headset jack, TV-out, up to 9 hours talktime, up to 18 days stand-by time and a 1200 mAh battery.
This handset will be available in 5 vibrant colors – Dark Grey, Silver White, Green, Blue and Orange. You can pre-order this handset for 599â‚¬ (approx. $800). If you are planning to pre-order this handset, head over to this page. Currently, Dark Grey and Silver White are the only colors available for pre-order. This handset will be soon available in other countries.
According to earlier rumors the iPhone 4 data plans will be $29.99 and Verizon will also provide mobile hotspot for the phone wherein you can connect up to 5 different devices to make use of your phone’s data plan.
However, if you are an AT&T user, you will have to break your existing contract and then sign a new 2 year contract with Verizon. Also, the AT&T iPhone 4 will not work on Verizon since it is a CDMA network.
Considering how fast Verizon LTE network is, this should see a huge shift of customers from AT&T to Verizon. The Verizon iPhone page is already up and can be visited here, but pre-orders won’t open up till February 3, 2010 for new customers. Existing Verizon customers can also get an iPhone 4 from reserved quantity before anyone else. Sign up link for the same is present in the above URL.
In the conference the release date was announced as May 17th 2011, and the contents of the Collector’s and Premium editions of the game, as well as some preorder details. One of these preorder details was that the game could be purchased from their sister project: GOG.com, the premiere DRM-free digital distribution service.
Although the preorder page at GOG is as of now showing a 404, the tentative details that emerged from their post are that it would feature a 10% discount as well as a free download of any one of the premiere RPGs in GOG’s catalog. The preorder will also entail instant access to some bonus contents of the game.
Also, it seems like you do not have to pay upfront for the preorder how that would work out is still in the dark because of the missing page.
For me, this is the sweetest deal imaginable and I’d jump as soon as I could. Hopefully the missing page will be reinstated soon!
Update: They have taken down the announcement page as well. Stay tuned for further updates!
