The successor to the Nokia E90 was recently introduced by Nokia last March 24, 2011 at the Makati Shangri-La.
Dubbed as Nokia’s best all-in-one business smartphone, the Nokia E7 is packed with features, which suit business executives that want to have a normal yet productive life even during holidays.
The overall design of the said phone is quite similar to the Nokia N8, plus a full qwerty physical keyboard. The sliding mechanism of the screen to reveal the carefully designed full qwerty keyboard is similar to Nokia N97 and N97 mini.
Its minimalist design makes it more appealing for the sly “workaholics” and its robust built gives the impression that it’s created to last for many ages. And yes, it’s Nokia first phone features a screen with exceptional damage resistance – thanks to its Gorilla Glass.
The Nokia E7 will be available in Dark Grey and Silver White at Nokia Stores nationwide. It has an SRP of P32,000.
