Gallery: Nokia E7 blue – How external slots should work.

One of the things I DIDN’t like about the Nokia N8 was that fiddly SIM and memory card door. Perhaps with time you get used to how to open it, and yes it is quite secure and flush with the device – but it is a little bit of a pain to open. The SIM you may open less unless you’re frequently swapping between devices, but memory card you may be popping out for card reader transfers.

Anyway, on the Nokia E7, you’ll notice a different implementation. One it does NOT have a memory card slot. But if it did, I would like to see something similar to the SIM tray where it effortly slides out WHILST being secure. Perhaps in future make it so it isn’t somehow completely detachable from the device as I can sort of forsee this disappearing and getting lost foro some people.

It is understandable that space is a contraint, but when you compromise so much that you affect functionality (i.e. making card doors so hard to open people don’t use it) then you’ve sort of failed in the design, no?

As well as that, here’s another Nokia E7 gallery. This time, a blue one without that tether stuck to the back.

      Though I would’ve preferred a MicroSDHC slot…I like the USB OTG even more. As for having a spare MSDHC for backups…this is more convenient but can be addressed with OTA backups (OVI) or via PC or even via USB OTG. Not the biggest feature to miss. Actually, for me I miss the AF camera so that I can OCR my business cards or read a barcode. As well, a missing FM transmitter is a no go. For me, the N8 is the better phone all around, if you can live without a physical QWERTY and “only” 3.5 inch screen. Yes, for both in my case.

        N8 qwerty with a slide up hardware keyboard would be perfect for me. Something similar to the Palm Pre.

    Hey Jay,

    Earlier when at Nokia world, you had asked us, if we wanted some questions to be answered and you would try to get the answers. Many of us suggested you many questions.
    Did you get answers to any? Are you going to post them in a separate post soon?

      Hey Hary,

      Some questions I have replied to – some I am waiting answers.

      I’ll try to get a post on that soon before the workload at uni mountains up. If I haven’t done so in a week, just remind me. Too many things juggling in air right now. 🙂

    Is it true?

      Symbian^3 uses RAM paging, so yes. Probably one of the reasons why the N8/E7/C7/C6 handle true multi-tasking really well with only 256MB of RAM.

    A hard to open SIM card door is making the phone more secure in case of a thief.

    it’s is actually a feature. i guess Nokia sees it’s user doesn’t not change SIM card very much.

    Not sure on the hot tray feature. When I travel overseas, my second/home sim is kept on the battery and then I place the battery cover. Perfect for not losing my sim.
    Now…some adjustments are needed 😉

    wow, I think that is a useful thing to be. And it should be more tight than loose 🙂 beauty anyway. I´m sure it was hard to design since space is truly limited.

    Compare Nokia N8 Vs Nokia C7 Vs Nokia E7

    at http://www.techmazter.com/2010/11/nokia-n8-vs-nokia-c7-vs-nokia-e7.html

    If you are going to buy a fully loaded Nokia Smart Phone with the latest technologies, we will help you to compare these Smart Phones including the Price. If you buy any of these phones without knowing the features of the device, it may make regret in you. If we buy Nokia Smart Phones among them without any comparison between them, sometimes by giving a little amount more, you will get the most technology in the device.
    Here we consider Nokia N8, Nokia C7 and Nokia E7 models which are available around Rs. 20000 INR. Nokia N8 is more power full by its 12MP Camera with HD recording in the most ever clarity in camera given by Nokia. If you do not consider the few thousands more from C7 and E7, then it’s better for you. You can get the extreme in this device.
    If you are looking for a bigger screen size then Nokia E7 may be your choice it has 4 inch wide display which is too large enough to handle, but the other two handsets are easy to handle and have wide display of 3.5 inches (not wider than Nokia E7). Nokia E7 is a business Smart Phone where as Nokia N8 is fully enabled for entertainment. You get a 4 inches wide display at low cost among these Smart Phones.
    But if you are on the stand to buy neither an entertainment phone nor a business phone then Nokia C7 will be a good device. Both Nokia N8 and Nokia C7 are available in Indian Markets. The price and detailed comparison are given below. The three phones are powerful devices made from Nokia with a wide range of features. All the three phones have almost all features but some features are unique.
