TC, 29 Sep 2010Buy HTC Desire Z, it is a much better phone especially if you want to edit text and Office Doc... moreI don't think so. But remember, nokia e7 (and all Eseries devices) supports most Microsoft applications than HTC desire. This is made possible through the collaboration of microsoft corporation with nokia last year. For that reason, we can say that nokia is now bringing the microsoft innovations to its business devices not just the microsoft office softwares but also other MS products as well.

What will affect text readability will be the font used. Even on this resolution, I think that you can find a font that is readable enough on a 4" screen.
[deleted post]You are partially right but let's see if they can gain their glory back to the smartphone race. Nokia is not totally a loser phone maker. Their hardwares are proven superb and high quality than its rivalries, but they sucks when it comes to software innovations. I like their efforts as of the second half of this year that they gradually improve the symbian os. It is now a very good contender for iOS and android (i guess). Nokia must have a complete departure from the outdated symbian OS for their future symbian^4 and ^5.
Anonymous, 29 Sep 2010Did you know that symbian OS is a power efficient operating system than android and iOS? Yes, ... moreThat's BS, Symbian is slow and sluggish, and no, there's no 1.5GHz Android phone. And the 1GHz ones are much faster than any Symbian device out there.

Yes, you read it right! Symbian is exclusively run by ARM 11 processor that is proven to save more power. Its 680mHz processor is more than enough to run the phone smoothly plus the addition of the latest Graphic Processor that accelerates the performance of the device. Android users are currently suffering from low battery performance because their devices run 1Ghz to 1.5Ghz of CPU that kills the battery for a short period of time.
phone_warrior, 29 Sep 2010they should have made e7 a solid "bar type" phone. moving mechanism sucks after year... moreYes, you're right! Time will come that the sliding mechanism of this phone will loose. I hope that nokia will make another symbian^3 device with candy bar in form like the nokia e5,e63 and e71. I hope that it will be an Eseries incorporating with the Touch and Type design and will have 3 inches display + QWERTY keyboard. That's a perfect phone for me. Honestly, i like the design of this phone. The appeal is unique and futuristic. Good job nokia.
still having a problem the processor better on 1ghz not 680 mhz and the other thing the battery willget more lasting with li-po bl-4c.like e71 or n97(for batery only hehehe)

The new communicator will not be launched until next year...

impressive design and specs, unfortunatly resolution (so small on big 4") makes me doubt about text readability. And that is suposed to be main purpose of that device. I might change my mind when i have some hands-on experience.
This phone looks cool, i've seen the review in youtube and it was not that bad afterall. I think I'm going to buy this phone if the it's not overprice, because my Samsung i780 suddenly stopped working.
Bye2 nokia..all brandnew nokia just the same ..nothing more like n97 the hanging one
they should have made e7 a solid "bar type" phone. moving mechanism sucks after years of used.slide phones tends to break data cables (ribbons) of the phone
hayato, 29 Sep 2010Galaxy S is not set for international release. Unlike wave. It has something to do with the... morebig error, galaxy s has 4 digits too, i9000, i think it's not on numbering then :D
Ive had several nokias, 6230 6120 classic 6110 navigator, E66 E71 5800 xm N78 N79 N97 and now im sitting with a N97 mini which i like alot and a E52, ive never really had any major problems with the phones, just minor things, guess we all dont have the same luck, i see everyone is comparing the Cpu speed, the ram, memory, OS, screen size screen materials camera of the N8 E7 C7 etc, we can talk talk and talk and criticise and say this and that but we have to experience the device for ourselves before we can make a proper judgement, but whens all said and done i think these new nokias will be awesome, 680mhz processor with a graphics accelerator, 256mb ram, Symbian 3 operating system and a host of other improvements should really make a big difference and it should be enough, and im sure these devices wont dissapoint like the N97 did before the software updates, once the latest software updates were done on these phones they werent bad at all and the applications were decent enough, although they will improve and bring out much more new applications with these devices, ive played around with blackberry 9700 bold, HTC desire, I Phone 3GS, they nice phones but they dont really offer that much over what nokia has in MY opinion, and im sure with these new devices and future ones the tables will be turned! NOKIA RULEZ!
hayato, 29 Sep 2010I'm just saying that symbian isn't presenting natively the features you have said symbian has ... moreAnd you are forgetting about usb otg. Nokia didn't copy that.
Also, if nokia's software fail to impress someone like you. Why not gave it's hardware possibilities some thought.
I heard that nokia is planning to put a smell detecting hardware(?) on the mic. The thing is still on research though.
Some might think it's ridiculous, but as nokia itself says, they are a phone manufacturing firm aimed at connecting people, they made long lasting hardwares at its best. They're certainly not a software company. But with stephen elop as the new ceo, things might change.
ShameOnNokia, 28 Sep 2010going by your logic, then so can android, ios, windows mobile 7, webOS(now owned by HP), BB OS... moreI'm just saying that symbian isn't presenting natively the features you have said symbian has copied. Because they can't see its relevance. Like the conversational view of sms. They gave the responsibility of doing so to the developers. But since the public is now demanding of those things to be injected on the Ui, because of the trend made by apple, they follow suit.
Copying can't be avoided these days (The first smartphone is made by nokia btw) Yes nokia copied too. But it's not like they are denying it.
If they are the best or not, the hell i care. As long as it does what it supposed to do, i'm still going to buy the phone i like(not necessarily nokia, i like samsung wave too). And as far as my history of using nokia is concerned, i never experienced any problems like most western people are complaining. (Asians get their nokias from china-based factory btw) And from there, you'll see why i always try to understand nokia's logic on processors, screens, and rams I never had problems with nokia. (i never had n97)
At the end of the day, it's people's individual preferences that counts.
Jos, 29 Sep 2010And this device, it doesnt hav that E-series feel it looks more like a n8 mini pro!How can it be a " Nokia N8 mini pro? " There is nothing mini about the E7, dimentions or specs. It will be better if they called it N8 pro OR N8 Messanger. Its really more of an N-series device, even the body is like an N8! If it has a stainless steel body, then it will be a real E-seires device. Right now, the colors available don't look to business orientated to me. I think its a sahme Nokia called it the successor to the E90 Communicator. THat was a legendary device, and about 3 year later they have down-graded. Tisk tisk tisk.
