This phone is announced in september 2010. Knowing nokia this phone will be released in july 2011.
By then you already have dual core processors, android 3.0, superamoled on ALL phones and tons of other features on the phone. The e7 is already outdated when it was announced in september 2010. How would it look in 2011?

Since 2005 I've used N91 and N80. After that i upgraded to N95, then I went with E71x, then E71-2. After that I've went with N900 while one of my family member got N97. Most devices of Symbian are slow when performing simple functions as web browsing. N97 on wifi loads webpages with lots of images noticeably slower than iphone on same website and same wifi connection. Symbian isn't out dated because it can't do things androids can't because if theres something that you can't do on symbian but theres a demand for it, there will be applications programmed. Its outdated because theres no future for it. Symbian is losing amount of developers quick, and its just not able to keep up. Even if you haven't noticed, Symbian-guru.com even quit symbian/nokia. When someone who was a hard core advocate like Symbian-guru feels theres no hope for symbian thats gotta be telling you something.
ShameOnNokia, 30 Sep 2010but theres where I fail to see your logic. You say nokia has seen the demands of their custome... moreWhen you look at it on a dark side. You can assume that nokia has purchased a bunch of arm11 processors long ago and they are just disposing all of it. But as i have said before, i don't care. I used symbian all my life, and i haven't encountered any problem.
Somehow, i'm quite lost why you are insisting that symbian can't do much like android. Can you name some? I never used android, though i admit i'm interested in this OS.
And for your suggestion... No. It would not serve my interest.
Anonymous, 29 Sep 2010Did you know that symbian OS is a power efficient operating system than android and iOS? Yes, ... moreYes, because symbian is made long time ago, when only arm11 processors are popular.
b4d, 30 Sep 2010it has a new nokia type called, clear-black amoled display,not just amoled... which is better ... moreThis is truly one thing Nokia has gotten right. ClearBlack is amoled technology, however its power output is much closer to traditional LCD than LED displays. Meaning it can provide better color than most regular LED screens.
dont ever buy new nokia phones...they are just craps....if u r gonna buy a new nokia phone than u have a choice of E71 and E72....no phone is better than those phones....
it has a new nokia type called, clear-black amoled display,not just amoled... which is better compared to the superamoled of the samsung one.
this is to shame on nokia, your a non-hetero. nokia, if not, was probably the first to ever be considered a smart phone. i was downloading music, movies, pics, all multitaskking, like 6 years ago, now wverybody is tryin to put all that in one phone.
nokia is the shiiiiiiiznit
hayato, 29 Sep 2010I'm just saying that symbian isn't presenting natively the features you have said symbian has ... morebut theres where I fail to see your logic. You say nokia has seen the demands of their customer and has began to follow suit such as natively incorporating things like threaded sms. However I still see that they are failing to meet the demands of their customers. If they did, we wouldn't see the problems with many customers complaining about hardware lacking, or why they fail to compete. Symbian as an OS might have a large market share, however that is because Symbian can be found on the cheapest handsets, not because its a good OS. The samsung wave with BADA is seriously a let down. Its just Samsung trying to copy iOS and android. Even from the videos of Symbian^3 i can see that Nokia is seriously trying to copy android. Their contact management, and sms looks exactly like android, which is a shame because nokia was innovative at one point. If you don't like my views on Nokia that is fine, I'm just here to express my opinion on an open site. You are free to go over to HTC section too and you can always post why you feel HTC handsets are inferior to Nokia.
hayato, 29 Sep 2010I'm just saying that symbian isn't presenting natively the features you have said symbian has ... moreThe first smartphone was called Simon, it was designed by IBM in 1992...
(not Nokia. Nokia copy this technology and few years later made own)
...and shown as a concept product that year at COMDEX, the computer industry trade show held in Las Vegas, Nevada.
i just ordered a htc wildfire, i don´t know why i did this, may be because i can not afford an n8 or an e7, but i belive nokia still does the best phones!
Anonymous, 29 Sep 2010The E7 is not the new communicator...
The new communicator will not be launched until next... moreAlthough I also refuse to believe this is a Communicator successor, Nokia did call it that on social networks when introducing E7.
Unfortunately Nokia has taken a wrong path with smartphones and they remind me of Samsung 5 years ago - mass producing fancy phones without any sense of innovation and respect for 'serious' users. I've been using Nokia since 1999 and I'm sorry to say that E72 will be the last Nokia phone I'll ever buy.
Symbian had great potential back in the days (it was designed to be fast and light) before it was ruined by Nokia's crappy GUI on S60v2/3 phones and earned a "slow OS" tag. Even if it's open source now and Nokia launched Qt which should make it faster it's too late for it. The number of developers for Symbian is dropping (with reason), and I don't understand why after all that talk about Meego (Meamo) E7 gets (beside undeserved E series classification) Symbian instead of it.
Sorry Nokia but overpriced crappy hardware in combination with OS that is doomed is not something on what I want to spend over 5 benjamins.
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.
simple user, 29 Sep 2010impressive design and specs, unfortunatly resolution (so small on big 4") makes me doubt ... moreIf you are concerned about text readability, I don't think that 360x640 on a 4" screen will be an issue. Text is quite readable on my 3.5" screen with the same resolution.
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.
Anonymous, 29 Sep 2010still having a problem the processor better on 1ghz not 680 mhz and the other thing the batter... moreDid you know that symbian OS is a power efficient operating system than android and iOS? 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.
