Nokia E7 Smartphone Hands-On (PHOTOS): 'Wow' To 'Weird'

Nokia recently unveiled its new E7 smartphone, a phone the company claims is "the best business device Nokia, or anyone else, has ever produced," according to Engadget.

Boy Genius Report
outlines the features of the E7, which will be available in the fourth quarter of 2010 for 495 Euros (unsubsidized): "The E7 [...] packs a 4-inch, polarized, AMOLED display that has a 640 x360 resolution. The device has a peta-band WCDMA radio, quad-band GSM radio, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, and GPS. Aside from enough radios to cook a chicken, the E7 also features a full-QWERTY slide and tilt keyboard, 16 GB of mass storage, 8 megapixel camera with 720p video recording and dual-LED flash, HMDI connector, and 1200 mAh battery." The smartphone, one of three handsets announced by Nokia, will be running Nokia's Symbian^3 operating system (See pictures of the other two new phones, the Nokia C7 and Nokia C6, below.)
