A Closer Look at the New Nokia E7

Nokias latest assault on the smart phone world comes in the shape of the e mail friendly E7, a stylish looking phone that couples traditional smartphone functionality with the advantages that a physical slide out keypad offers.

There are plenty of media features on show with the Nokia E7 to keep the whole spectrum of users happy. Regardless of what area you are using, the phones high capacity 16GB of internal storage offers ample room for a wide array of files, and should you find yourself needing extra, the microSD card slot offers potential for up to a further 32GB. The E7 features an impressive camera facility that snaps images in a high resolution of 8 million pixels. There is an impressive face recognition software package on board so when taking photographs, the camera focuses on the faces within a scene. A dual LED flash improves the quality of photos taken in less than ideal lighting conditions. Video capture is equally, if not more impressive thank to the unit recording in the hallowed HD format. This means the camera records at a staggering 720P quality. An extra bonus is found in the form of the HDMI port, making linking this phone to a home television an easy affair. Music wise, the E7 handles a wide array of audio file formats, with all of the usual suspects present including MP3 and eAAC+. A 3.5mm headphone jack ensures that you can choose from a wide range of headphones for you to listen to your music through.

Thanks to its minimal styling, the Nokia E7 is an undeniably great looking phone. The 4″ AMOLED screen occupies much of the fascia, leaving just a single Home button located beneath it. The E7 offers a well constructed Qwerty keypad, which is activated via a very well designed slider mechanism. When the phone is held in landscape mode, the keyboard slides downwards from behind. When fully activated, the screen is left at a slight angle, making setting the phone down onto a desk or table very practical in order to compose message. The handset benefits from offering a revamped Symbian v3.0 operating system. This offers a range of improvements to users including a redesigned homescreen layout which is colourful and functional. This is fully customisable and enables you to add a range of widgets. The Ovi Store is heavily integrated into the interface, making downloading of applications a quick and simple affair. The Nokia E7 offers users a host of features that will excite phone fans everywhere. Despite being a messaging device, the media features are superb and the processor ensures the phone zips along at super fast speeds.

The Nokia E7 is coming soon and the Nokia N8 is available now.
