Nokia X7, E6

The latest handsets from the Finnish manufacturer featuring the new ‘Anna’ version of Symbian are being shipped.

The handsets that are under discussion – the business oriented model E6 and the multimedia-focused version X7 would be under sale in Europe, Eurasia and Asia-Pacific countries. While these would be the areas of sale for both the versions, E6 would also be available in the Middle East and Africa. This version has a similar look and feel to the earlier successful models E71 and E72 and adds a touch screen.

Both these models use a revamped Symbian browser – version 7.3. The best part of this version is that it does away with the bottom row of icons and hence there is more room for browsing the pages. These models also include split-screen text input and modified Ovi Maps.

The handsets are augmented with 8 mega pixel camera. And in the case of E6 model, it offers a direct access to Mail for Exchange, Microsoft Share Point and Microsoft Communicator Mobile. The presence of Microsoft Apps further symbolizes the bond between Microsoft and Nokia.

It has to be noted that in February, Nokia emphasized its commitment to the bond with Microsoft by proposing a phase out of Symbian. This would mean that these Symbian-based handsets would remain on sale only for the next couple of years. However, there would still be support and updates on this operating system and will support until 2016.
