Nokia E7 To Land In The UK This Week?

Nokia has confirmed that its E7 smartphone will arrive in stores in selected markets this weeks with availability expanded to several other markets within weeks.

The device, which is the heir to the popular Communicator range, comes with a tilting 4-inch ClearBlack display, one which is as bright and crisp as AMOLED screens.

Nokia says that it has partnered with Microsoft and IBM to support their business applications (including Exchange, Outlook, Office Communicator Mobile and Lotus Notes we suspect) and includes support for Intranet access via a VPN.

There's also a QWERTY keyboard, one without a dedicated line of number keys, but that shouldn't deter you from the phone's capabilities.

Other features include an ARM-based processor, an ancient ARM11 series, an eight megapixel camera with dual LED flash, HDMI connectivity, 16GB onboard flash, USB-on-the Go capability and compatibility with Ovi Store apps.

The E7 was launched back in September 2010 and is set to land in the UK in March 2011, nearly six months later; Vodafone has already confirmed that it will sell the Symbian^3 phone and Expansys has it on preorder for £495.
