The Nokia E7 highlights list continue with an 8MP capturing camera with dual-LED flash, 720p video capture, and 16GB of built-in storage. Unfortunately though, it turned out that the promising shooter is lacking autofocus, which takes some of the fun out.

There's HDMI port with Dolby Digital Plus surround sound support. The Nokia E7 weighs a hefty 176 grams - but that's becautilize it's made of anodized aluminum.

The Nokia E7 display uses the recent ClearBlack technology, which promises darker blacks, better sunlight legibility and lower power usage. The E7 is expected to cost around 495 euro (637 USD) before taxes and subsidies.

Having already spdiscontinue some time with the E7 we can easily agree with the description of Anssi Vanjoki - this thing is BIG. But luckily those bits about its remarkable build quality and sleek design turned out true, too.

By the way, here's a hands-on video of the Nokia E7 that we shot at the event.

The Nokia E7 is certainly not easy to handle if you have smaller hands but it certainly is remarkable to see at. The keyboard feels very comfortable as one would expect from a device that claims to succeed the omnipresent Nokia E90 communicator. Just how can the successor sport a resolution lower than its predecessor is a whole different question, which we can't respond at this point.

The resolution aside, the Nokia E7 Clear Black display does see pretty good. Its viewing angles are comparable, although not quite as fine as the ones on the iPhone 4. The typically high for AMOrganic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) classy screen contrast makes everything go live on the classy screen and the display doesn't seem to have too many reflections, which recommends that it will be easily visible under direct sunlight.

Finally, a quick thought about the user interface. It does seem to do everything they promised at the announcement - fix most Symbian^1 flaws, but retain the same structure. Now depending on how you see at it that second part could either be fine news or poor news but we would rather stay positive at this stage.

After all Symbian is still the most popular smartphone platform out there so people are quite used to it. And that means they will be able to find their way around the Symbian^3 Operating System (OS) quite easily too.
