Nokia’s latest smartphone, the business oriented E7, has started shipping around the world today. Of course, “around the world” doesn’t encompass us in the UK just yet. Boo.
The handset was originally announced at Nokia World last September, almost five months ago, but UK consumers will have to wait longer still. There’s no official release date for us, but the Nokia E7 is expected to go for around £420.
The Nokia E7 boasts a 4in AMOLED touch display (the largest on any of the new Symbian range), an 8MP camera with dual-LED flash, HD video capture, 16GB of on-board memory and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.
For business types, there’s secure access to email, contacts, calendar and tasks with Microsoft Exchange server, and Microsoft Communicator Mobile.
Colour-wise it’s the same dealio as the Nokia N8, namely dark grey, silver-white, blue, green and orange.
The Nokia E7 will be available on Vodafone when it does finally shows face over here.
