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.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

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