Nokia E7 Review from All About Symbian

| February 8, 2011 | 17 Replies

The mighty Rafe Blandford of All About Symbian has reviewed the Nokia E7 is meticulous detail.

This Part 1 review alone covers the following major topics:

  1. Introduction
  2. In the box
  3. Design
  4. Keyboard
  5. Around the phone
  6. Size
  7. Part of a family, differences from the N8, design constraints
  8. Symbian^3 software
  9. Ovi Services
  10. Enterprise capabilities
  11. Multimedia capabilities
  12. Initial concluding thoughts

History of the communicator. Wow, that brick. And that was not even the first range of colour communicators

Some hardware highlights (Rafe reviews more on software in his review)

  • Refreshingly different form factor – looks like an oversized N8 when closed – a good thing meaning very solid when closed.
  • Tilt-Hinge a refinement over what was to debut on the N97 – revealing a keyboard that surprises and provokes amazement
  • Pleasing new statement on the hinge: Prototype E7 units were rather stiff (in opening), but the retail unit reviewed here is much improved, evidence that design optimisation work continues even after a device has been announced.
  • I would judge the E7 as having the best QWERTY keyboard that Nokia have put on a mobile device.
  • one of the best screens on the market – (CBD greatness over competitors Confirmed by GSMArena, not just Symbian related sources)

Cheers to everyone who sent this in. I can’t find the exact comment where the link was posted, but hat tip to you.
