Not sure why Nokia is sticking to Symbian. They had all the chance in the world to make it an advanced operating system and they failed miserably.
They should just let it go and stick to manufacturing handsets.
But as usual, big corporations like to think they are “Mr. know it all” and they want to milk the revenue until the last drop. This will be the start of their demise. (I strongly believe already started a while back)
Anonymous, 15 Mar 2011so how can you replace the battery on E7 when it does run out of power?it will not run out of battery as easily as any android will....thats my point my friend...

Also, given how "busy" a business person is supposed to be, would it be convenient to be able to open the qwerty keyboard with a single hand? Can you do that on an E7 vs. that of Milestone 2?

Get a life.

Anonymous, 14 Mar 2011so exactly how much "business" this phone can do over so called "non-business&q... more"longer battery life" than any android phone !!!! which is first and farmost the importnt factor which ur so called super os androids cant provide !!! buisnessmen need a phone which can be used heavyily and yet to survive whole day without dying on to them in just few hours of heavy use...just the way androids does !!! buisnessmen cant keep an eye on their battery monitor while 'working' just the way a teenager can while 'playing' on their android toy phones !!!!

Exactly what are the "business features" that can ONLY be found on this E7 over other qwerty phones like Motorola Milestone 2/Pro/Cliq 2 or HTC Desire Z?
I simply hate the fact that even GSMArena is trying to make you believe that Symbian is dead, yeah, it's about to lose the top position of smartphone market share, but who cares? Even losing the top, it will still be ahead of iOS and Blackberry OS for example. Nokia have several updates for Symbian this year just like they have several devices to launch, so how can you say that Symbian is dead?
Just stop it, it's annoying already.
Anonymous, 03 Mar 2011Kudos to GSMArena for a great review. I do agree that it's not advisable to buy this device or... moreSymbian is dead really? Who said that? A biased website I guess? Nokia never said that would kill Symbian, instead, he said that Symbian is "here to stay" and it will have several updates this year just as several devices that will be released.
So stop believing everything that people are saying to you yeah?

please can sonebody tell me when this phone will be available in France????
Where I live the official price for E7 dropped from around US$690 to around US$615 in about 2 weeks at major chain stores. Smaller shops even offer another US$50 off...still almost nobody bought this phone.
In the major phone forum only ONE person said he bought the phone...only because somehow he got it for around US$520, but he sold it within a week for around US$425....
Meanwhile, the Motorola Milestone 2 was released officially around the same time where I live for around US$525. Ever since the phone was released, there has been new users started to discuss about the phone in the forum "everyday"....until a week ago...due to the fact the whole city is practically out of stock!
Irteza, 02 Mar 2011AnyOne notice on the qwerty keyboard "Y" key position is swapped with "Z" ... moreI come from Germany and I can tell you that this is the standard German keyboard layout. It also contains letters that are rarely used in other languages than German (Umlaute): Ä, Ö, Ü. If you do a quick Google Image search and compare the pictures here with the press photos (which show the English keyboard layout) you can see that a few interpunction characters were moved somewhat...
Apparently, unlike N8, E7 does not have the FM Transmitter feature. I suggest scrapping the info from the "Key Features" on Page 1.
who on earth will buy this crap symbian phone and that too for horrible 35k price
when we are flooded with android phones much cheaper why the hell nokia think they can sell E7 crap
[deleted post]The E71 met all these requirements (except maybe the lousy mail client). Still looking for a suitable replacement for my (now aging) E71.
