The Nokia E7 is soon to be released. Its popularity looks assured thanks to key features which include an eight mega-pixel camera, AMOLED capacitive touchscreen and comprehensive multimedia compatibility.
The appearance of the handset is initially similar to that of the Nokia N8 which was recently released and is proven successful thus far. However on closer inspection you will notice a full QWERTY keyboard which slides out from beneath the screen and offers an efficient and practical means of entering text. This makes a great phone for those who send a lot of text messages or emails, as well as those who like to regularly update their status on social networking sites.
The handset measures 123.7x 62.4x 13.6 mm and weighs in a severe 176 g. Despite being a pocket friendly handset, it still boasts a large 4 inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen which operates at a pixel resolution of 360x 640 and can display up to a whopping 16 million colours. This makes a great phone for viewing movies and photos as well as gaming and surfing the web. The screen comes with a number of notable specifications which include handwriting recognition, touch sensitive controls and both proximity and accelerometer sensors.
A generous 16 GB of internal storage is provided as standard within the Nokia E7 alongside 1 GB ROM and 256 MB RAM. With such a generous level of internal storage, the need for expandable memory is essentially eliminated which is why Nokia has decided not to include a microSD slot has a many other Smartphones do. On the rare occasion that users may require further storage, they can always utilise their USB memory stick with a compatible on-the-go cable.
In order to browse the web, the Nokia E7 utilises 3G coverage via an HSDPA connection which provides impressive speeds of up to 10.2 Mbps alongside HSUPA at 2 Mbps. A faster connection can be achieved however, thanks to Wi-Fi connectivity which takes advantage of local Wireless Networks and routers be they in domestic or commercial locations. EDGE and GPRS in class 32 versions keeps the Nokia E7 connected to the appropriate cellular networks when on the move.
One of the most notable features of this handset has to be the 8 mega pixel digital camera. Thanks to its high operating pixel resolution, the resulting images are of superb quality. Fixed focus, dual-LED flash and face recognition are all included to simplify the task of taking great pictures, whilst the addition of geo-tagging means users can keep tabs on where they took off their photos. Of course, the camera can also shoot video and this is in 720p HD quality.
Boasting the same Symbian 3 operating-system as the Nokia N8 and C7, the Nokia E7 is likely to appeal to many types of mobile phone user ranging from the business person up to the social networker. The manufacturer plans to release the handset in a number of different colour variants meaning it will also appeal to the style conscious user.
