Nokia E7 smartphone (preview)

Nokia's E7 business phone is constructed of anodised aluminium and features a 4in, capacitive AMOLED touchscreen.

Nokia's E7 smartphone is a throwback to the days of the Nokia Communicator, a device that was marketed as a mini computer and was one of the first smartphones to feature a full QWERTY keyboard.

The Nokia E7 has a 4in, capacitive AMOLED touchscreen with a 640x360 pixel resolution, along with a full, physical QWERTY keyboard and angled slider. The Nokia E7 also has an anodised aluminium enclosure that looks similar in style to the upcoming flagship N8 smartphone.

The Nokia E7 is positioned as a business or corporate device and Nokia has touted "real multitasking" as one of its key features. The E7 supports e-mail through Microsoft Exchange Server and ships with the full Office suite that allows the editing and reading of PowerPoint, Word and Excel documents.

Other features of the Nokia E7 smartphone include an 8-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash, 720p HD video recording and 16GB of internal memory, along with a microSD card slot that will accept cards up to 32GB in size. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS connectivity are all included, while an HDMI-out port allows you to connect the E7 to a large screen television to display videos and photos.

The Nokia E7 will also ship with Nokia's Ovi Maps application which provides free full turn-by-turn navigation for the lifetime of the device.

The Nokia E7 is not expected to launch in Australia until early 2011. Pricing is yet to be announced.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
