Video: Nokia E7 unboxing from unboxings.com

| April 17, 2011 | 6 Replies

If there’s an unboxing to be done, there’s unboxings.com with

Today he unboxes the Nokia E7.  As typical of all unboxings and tours of the Nokia E7, hardware is much loved (I agree, all except the EDoF, not autofocus as video says) though software not so much.( Hopefully it will change in the summer/fall when the new updates arrive. But then there will always be (like with every OS) the eternal anti-Symbian who would hate it for the simple fact that it’s Symbian without ever having used it. Like wise, this happens for other camps too.

The responses are more disheartening when it’s ex users expressing disappointment, and still to this day I cannot defend against it as we are still in wait for portrait QWERTY and an actual decent web browsing experience (and various other niggles and flaws that I’m more familiar with, simply because I have used Nokia Symbian since the very first handset).

It’s comments like below that I hope I won’t be seeing this time next year (not just with the new batch of Symbian handsets that I hear are quite good and hopefully with the all new revamped UI, but also with MeeGo phone and Windows Phone from Nokia). It has always been the case, even with Maemo that software never matched hardware (and in N900’s case, it was excellent software inside, it was just much too fat – according to reviewers.)

Warning, comment stream is of course from the inane land of YouTube comments. Feel the ‘might’ of iOS fanboys and fandroids bash Nokia/Symbian. The demo of Symbian wasn’t even that bad (unlike many that are down right scathing).

Is it my firefox or did the start up hands stutter when he turned the E7 on? 06:54. Man, Symbian really needs transitions/animations to act as illusions for load times. It just looks like it’s freezing every time the screen is still doing nothing. I’ve mentioned it before that my N8 might open Ovi maps faster (than my Samsung with Bing maps), but it appears slower because it just stares at you.
