Nokia has fulfilled the promise he made just after announcing it will use Windows Phone 7 on their High-end phones, giving away a brand new Nokia E7 to all developers forum members, myself included . I got mine a few days ago directly from Finland. Just when I had my Nexus S. And you do not want us to leave Symbian platform away from right now . The phone I was pleasantly surprised, both the big screen and finish are exceptional, all metal. Yes, it does weigh a bit, but the first impression is great.
As I said above (and here you call me geek), I'm a Nokia-Fan for a long time. The Nexus has reinforced my idea that Nokia phones are much easier to use for the general public without compromising on performance, my sisters would cost much adapt to Android, while Nokia remains the essence of a normal phone but with more things and touch.
Here it is compared to the Nexus S, you see has nothing to envy, quite the opposite. The only downside is that the screen is not as sensitive as the Nexus, but yes, I have to say that the E7 still has the original protective plastic, so performance is still adequate even to play Angry Birds.
But not everything would be wonderful. In the few days that we have at home we used to tinkering a bit and play and have been hung and rebooted several times. We'll see when my partner uses it usually scares me. I hope to launch an update soon as the phone seems just great.
The interface have given a facelift interesting, improved widgets and system management on the desktop, virtual desktops have added moving laterally (to Android), in short, a hybrid between what was Nokia and modern stuff .
If to this we add the Ovi Maps system, simply outstanding and restrained battery consumption we have a device to take into account, is that here lies for me one of the great advantages of Symbian, Bluetooth, GPS and data have activated phone to several days. On Android, for a few hours. That's the big difference.
