Nokia is planning to ditch its Symbian mobile phone operating system, but that hasn't stopped the Finnish company announcing the release of the Nokia E7, a Symbian-based smartphone with a full QWERTY keyboard.

Read our reviews of other top Nokia phones and check out our comprehensive preview of the Nokia E7.

The Nokia E7 is described by the company as "an all-in-one business smartphone" and will be sold through Optus and Vodafone in Australia. The E7 smartphone includes a 4in AMOLED touchscreen display, a full QWERTY keyboard, and an 8-megapixel, dual LED flash camera that doubles as a HD video recorder.

The Nokia E7 is marketed as a business 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 of PowerPoint, Word and Excel documents.

“The smartphone is now the primary business device for many Australians, but business users — like all consumers — don’t just want functionality. They expect flexibility, reliability and style. With the Nokia E7's touchscreen and slide-out QWERTY keyboard there's no need for compromise, and synchronisation with key corporate apps gives users access to critical business information," said Nokia Australia managing director, Chris Carr. "Nokia has always believed in creating a range of handsets that meet specific needs of different consumers — for the business user, the Nokia E7 gives new meaning to the mobile office."

Other features of the Nokia E7 include a brushed aluminium casing with a metallic finish, free voice guided navigation with the pre-installed Ovi Maps application, 16GB of internal memory, USB on-the-go connectivity (the same function utilised on Nokia's flagship N8 smartphone) and multi-party conference calling. 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 is available today from selected retailers and will be available from Optus and Vodafone this month with an RRP of $929.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
