The Nokia C7 has started shipping to customers around the world. The second Nokia smartphone based on the new Symbian platform, the Nokia C7 follows hot on the heels of the company’s entertainment powerhouse, the Nokia N8. Officially announced less than one month ago, the Nokia C7 can be seen as a cheaper alternative to the N8.
The Nokia C7, is the company’s second smartphone based on the Symbian^3 operating system. Encased in a stainless steel casing, the sleek handset adorns a 3.5-inch full-touch AMOLED display which allows users to seamlessly surf the Web and more. Owners can update their Facebook, start tweeting and access to their e-mail accounts, including Ovi Mail, Yahoo! Mail and Windows Live Hotmail right through their homescreen.
The new smartphone features a 3.5 inch AMOLED ClearBack display with 360 x 640 pixels, HSPA, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, GPS, Ovi Maps with free navigation, social networking integration, 3.5mm headset jack, 8MP camera with 720p video recording, 1GB ROM, and 8GB of internal memory. Assisted GPS, and HSPA Cat9 wireless broadband theoretically capable of up to 10.2 Mbps per second. And, like so many other high-end Nokia devices, it’s being launched in Europe, with no word on when it might land in North America.
“The Nokia C7 is our second smartphone based on the new version of Symbian to hit the market,” Nokia smartphone chief Jo Harlow, in a statement. “Designed specifically with the style-conscious consumer in mind, the Nokia C7 also brings excellent social networking abilities, making it perfect for people who want to check-in and stay up to date.”
The phone runs the Symbian^3 platform, which features full HTML Web browsing, social networking integration for services like Facebook and Twitter, along with Flash Lite 4.0 and Nokia’s suite of Ovi applications: Maps, Store, Video, Photos, Messaging, Web TV, music, contact and calendar management, and more. The phone can also sync with MS Outlook. Nokia is pitching the N7 as a style-conscious social networking device.
The phone will be available in Europe for an estimates retail price of €335 before taxes and subsidies—that’s about US$465. Price and availability will, of course, vary from region to region and operator to operator.
