We know that more than a few of you have stuck with Nokia and Symbian for one reason: they’ve consistently made the most incredible hardware around in the portrait-QWERTY-no-touchscreen form factor around. The new Nokia E6 continues that fine tradition but brings something that we’re sure every single E71 and E72 user has been coveting: massively increased screen resolution. Packing in a 640 x 480 set of pixels into a 2.46″ screen makes for some pretty intense pixel density. Moving around the phone:
- 115.5 x 59 x 10.5 mm
- a 1500 mAh battery good for 7 and a half hours of talk time
- 680MHz processor
- FM Radio
- 8mp Camera with 720p video and a with front-facing camera too
- 8gb microSD included
The E7 runs Symbian Anna, which brings a new icon set and improved browser to the platform along with Microsoft Communicator for you business types.
Along with the Nokia X7 and Nokia E6, Nokia has announced the latest version of Symbian, “Symbian Anna.” Formerly PR2. It’s coming on those two new devices, but will also be made available as an upgrade to the Nokia N8, C7, C6-01, and E7 “in the coming months”
Anna features an updated icon set, an improved browser with faster performance and some UI enhancements, and (finally!) a proper portrait keyboard. Microsoft Communicator Mobile is also on board for IM, as are update Ovi apps.
Nokia has announced the Nokia X7, a Symbian-powered slate-style phone with a few new features to tout courtesy of a new version of Symbian they’re calling Anna: a proper portrait QWERTY keyboard and improved browser chief among them. This being Nokia, it’s no surprise that the new features take a backseat to the incredible hardware.
- 119.7 x 62.8 x 11.9 mm

Nokia would like you to know that they expect this to be an “entertainment-focused” device and so they’re preloading it with Galaxy on Fire HD and Asphalt 5 HD.
