Could this be the smartphone to really turn Nokia's fortunes? The Nokia E7 is now available for pre-order, though you won't actually get your hands on the device until next month. The handset sports both a tilting four-inch capacitive touch-screen and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard making it something of a hybrid. Though the handset runs on the much maligned Symbian operating system, it does thankfully run on the updated and much improved Symbian^3 first seen on the Nokia N8.
Other highlights include HDMI connectivity, an eight-megapixel camera complete with high definition video and dual LED flash, 16GB of onboard flash memory and live feeds direct to the homescreen from both Facebook and Twitter. There will also be free walk and drive navigation in 80 countries via Ovi Maps, while the Ovi store will allow you to pimp your phone up with apps such as Angry Birds and Skype.
The Nokia E7 is available for preorder SIM-free from the Nokia Online Shop now for £499. From April it will also be available from The Carphone Warehouse, Phones4u, Three, Vodafone and O2.
