Nokia E7 Goes On Preorder At Online Retailer

Nokia's apparent heir to the N900, the E7, will go on sale on the 10th of January 2011 according to a webpage that has been posted on UK online retailer Expansys.

The phone, which is basically a Nokia N8 with a keyboard, has been listed with a price of £585 (opens in new tab), significantly higher than the £330 that that N8 currently commands at Tesco or the £340 that Play.com charges for the technically superior Nokia N900 (opens in new tab).

The E7 was launched on the 14th of September during the Nokia World conference in London and called it the ultimate business smartphone.

It comes with a rather interesting chiclet type keyboard with a 4-inch display with a resolution of 640x360 pixels, a 8-megapixel camera with HD recording capabilities, two LED flashes and a 680MHz ARM11 SoC.

Like the N8, it has 256MB RAM and 16GB onboard memory and, in addition, comes with a HDMI connector plus USB on-the-go functionality. As noted before, it come with Symbian^3 and a 1200mAh battery that will allow a talktime of nine hours.
