well all are talking about android these days. I like this operating system in htc legend, my friend's. Its a great operating system. But i want to buy a great phone.. Not just a great os. Nokia built quality is superb and trust worthy. Major android handset makers are samsung htc and motorolla. In these samsung makes the worst quality. Htc Lacks after sales and moto also has the same problem. Infact samsung is switching over to its own os bada. Which may indicate that android has limited life time. Now if we talk about applications than if new application is launched in android than same will come on symbian also within a month, Nokia is now really serious about its application development. When you are buying a phone than see the phone also not just os. I like android but cant bet on htc and motorolla. Samsung is worst. Nokia e7 hardware is just great. 16gb memory is disappointing but comparing it with other phones than its ok. It has 680 processor but also has 3d chip and i love this design . Its a beauty. Its a great deal. Not a bet.
Stuntman, 30 Sep 2010I think Nokia is quite a long ways away from filing bankruptcy. Still they have to make an ef... moreactually the E7 has either an oled display or a amoled display so, even with 360*640 pixels it is very clear
Ibrahim, 30 Sep 2010Why the hell didnt Nokia put a memory card slot on this phone...??? Its just stupid of them i ... morebecause the e7 has usb on the go and you can plug in a 32 or 64 gb usb drive whenever u want to simple

Still they have to make an effort to head it off. If they do not, it will happen eventually. The good news for Nokia is that they do have some time as they are such a big company and are still making huge profits. The bad news is those profits are eroding away to other companies.
I don't see an E7 as a device for users to do photoshopping. It seems to be targetted to business users where the primary use is to check email, messages and calling. For this, the 360x640 resolution should be adequate and the CBD would be a benefit as it provides good readability if you are outside and on the go. A larger screen for this use would be more important than resolution.
As for viewing images, I would expect that higher resolution screens would be better. I haven't used a phone with a higher resolution than my N97. So far, I'm pretty satisfied with my N97 when surfing a web page with images or looking at pictures or videos. Maybe if I regularly used a phone with higher resolution I would not be able to go to a lower resolution.
In any case, I see the main selling point of the E7 is the qwerty and 4" CBD display. Another phone that is more likely in direct competition with the E7 (at least for me) is the HTC Desire Z. The Desire Z also has a qwerty, but with a smaller screen, but higher resolution. These are the two phones that seem to be front runners to be my next phone.
I do agree that Nokia is behind when it comes to developers. It is really sad that there is no native Twitter app for Symbian. The Gravity app is actually a great app for viewing Twitter, but I would have expected a native Twitter app like they have for Facebook.
Nokia is trying to encourage more developers to develop apps for Nokia phones. With Qt, they try to ensure that any work developers do on Symbian will be compatible with Meego. Even though Symbian may be on the way out, if there is an easy transition to Meego, then any apps developers build for the current Symbian phones can be used for the next generation of Meego phones.
It is still going to be an uphill battle for Nokia. Apple's iOS has been well establishd, Android is gaining great momentum and Windows Phone is about to be released with a lot of hype and interest so far.
TC, 29 Sep 2010Buy HTC Desire Z, it is a much better phone especially if you want to edit text and Office Doc... moreHell NO!
Android piece of shit with 3 line keyboard is for you. I want a FULL keyboard, a la 9210i !
Here is a couple of screenshot comparisons between the Nokia ClearBlack AMOLED and the Samsung SuperAMOLED. http://www.mobiset.ru/news/text/?id=14097
I'd say the ClearBlack AMOLED seems to be the winner..? I don't know about sharpness (or pixel density) since it's too hard to say exactly where the photographing camera has it's focus, but at least the colors on the Nokia screens seem to be more "true to life". And I like it!
Ibrahim, 30 Sep 2010Why the hell didnt Nokia put a memory card slot on this phone...??? Its just stupid of them i ... moreit is unlikely the user would need more mem since it already has a 16gb internal mem. so if u say nokia is stupid, many other phone companies are stupid including apple's iPhone which is a huge success. Before u bash a phone pls use ur common sense like wad is shown in the posting rules 'use common sense'
Anonymous, 30 Sep 2010n8 is much better than e7... Carl zeise optics. and much morewht about samsung galaxy i9000, or is thr any mobile in blackberry or HTC.

However I see it as them doing one last ditch effort to keep from filing bankruptcy. Yes I've read about their joint venture with ATT to pay 10M as a prize for winning developers. Bioseen is pretty much useless. Unless you're going to look for new species in your back yard, pretty much any biologist trying to discover new species will have way better equipments such as cameras with powerful sensors DSLRs. I don't know about you, but i know of very few professionals that want to be doing photoshop on a 4" screen with low resolutions. This is just me, but i feel nokia is too late to the party. They've had a monopoly on the smart phone market for so long that they've gotten lazy. If they were active from the beginning and marketed their OS and tried to lure real developers in they wouldn't be in the mind that they are now. Nokia doesn't have the global recognition that google has, so their venture into a app market failed. Apple has had itunes for the longest time so that attributed to their success with their app store.
pobradovic, 29 Sep 2010Although I also refuse to believe this is a Communicator successor, Nokia did call it that on ... moreDevelopers for symbian are few, yes. But nokia is doing a great effort in encouraging developers to make apps for symbian. Have you heard their project with at&t?
Some of the ideas are really promising. Like:
bioseen- an app that helps environmentalist with new species sightings.
- there is also an app that converts words taken on camera to an editable doc.
- a mobile photoshop
- a sound editor
- an app for emergency geo tagged photo.
And let's not forget the already available ones:
- fx studio
- video editor
- web tv
- plus many more great apps for symbian^1 compatible with ^3 too (eg. X-plore, ttpod, vhome, coreplayer.)
symbian has many useful apps, the difference, is that unlike in apple, you only have few choices under 1 category, which means, no more pile of repeated apps. I don't think if it's a good thing or bad for you.
