Summary: If you've been paying attention to our coverage of the Nokia E7, you'll remember that I complained at length about the slipperiness of the unibody main shell of the device: it was prone to dropping, especially when opening the E7, plus the device tended to skate away from me on the desk when I was...

All About Symbian
3 March 2011
Summary: In this, part five of our in-depth E7 review, I’ll continue to look at the productivity and enterprise features of the E7. Given that the E7 isn’t even available to buy in many areas yet, we are of course reviewing a product release (PR) 1.0 device.
Summary: In our continuing Nokia E7-00 review, Rafe has already given you his opinion on the E7 hardware . Following on, Steve has taken you through the image capture and multimeda capabilities of the E7.
Conclusion: It’s a heavy beast, clearly intended for business users. And as mobile offices go it’s a terrific tool, with a fine keyboard, excellent screen, more than capable camera and a feast of software goodies for work and fun.
Pros: Top notch build quality, excellent screen and QWERTY keyboard, 8 megapixel camera with HD video recording, HDMI output

Summary: The Nokia E7 is a thoroughly decent phone. It has more than enough going on inside it to more than satisfy the needs of the vast majority of consumers. It’s got lots of storage, a well integrated apps store, decent camera and video facility, an intuitive new OS and it lets you view web pages in...
Pros: Good display, Symbian^3 performs well, HDMI port, 8-megapixel camera, QWERTY keyboard, decent browser, unified email, 720p HD video recording,
Cons: Not quite as 'snappy' as the Nokia N8, Qwerty keyboard latch takes a while to get used to,
