    Nokia E7 review: Open for business------Courtesy

    Business as usual for the Eseries is a cliché – thank you very much. But the kind that makes the world feel right. The Nokia E7 could’ve been just another Eseries phone. Oh well, that wasn’t meant to be. The latest is implicitly the greatest but, in the case of the E7, the latest may simply be the last.
    Symbian is just about to be knocked off the top-spot as the market-leading smartphone platform. Worse yet, while loyal users are still sitting on a fence about replacing their E71/E72s Nokia is deciding whether to euthanize Symbian. Question marks have been hanging over the platform’s approach to touchscreen since day one. And now it’s got WP7 at its very doorstep. It’s the worst of times for the Nokia E7. But it’s up to it to show that the Eseries are still open for business.

    Key features

    Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support
    Penta-band 3G with 10.2 Mbps HSDPA and 2 Mbps HSUPA
    Anodized aluminum unibody
    4" 16M-color ClearBlack AMOLED capacitive touchscreen of 640 x 360 pixel resolution
    Scratch resistant Gorilla glass display
    8 megapixel fixed-focus camera with LED flash
    720p video recording @ 25fps
    Symbian^3 OS
    680 MHz ARM 11 CPU and 256 MB RAM
    Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
    microHDMI port 720p TV-out functionality
    GPS receiver with A-GPS support and free lifetime voice-guided navigation
    Digital compass
    16GB of on-board storage
    Active noise cancellation with a dedicated mic
    DivX and XviD video support
    Built-in accelerometer and proximity sensor
    Standard 3.5 mm audio jack
    Stereo FM Radio with RDS, FM transmitter
    microUSB port with USB On-the-go
    Flash and Java support for the web browser
    Stereo Bluetooth 3.0
    Good quality audio
    Smart and voice dialing
    Office document editor preinstalled

    Main disadvantages

    Symbian^3 is still behind Android and iOS usability standards
    Ovi store content is inferior to Android market and App Store
    Fixed-focus on an 8 megapixel camera is just wrong
    Camera interface is decidedly outdated
    Battery is not user-replaceable
    No microSD card slot

    Now, Nokia reconfirmed their commitment to Symbian in the short-term, but that doesn’t mean much. If the platform is to be scrapped, users will learn it the hard way when regular updates stop coming in. Occasional bug-fixes is the best they can hope to get. And good software support is among of the main reasons why people still choose Nokia.

    However, how much short-term can stretch depends on the success of the current Symbian^3 devices. So if the Nokia E7 does at least as well on the market as the N8, it might as well buy the platform a few extra years.
