The Nokia E7 showed up on Amazon in all of its glory and with equally glorious price tag. You can have all the sweetness of full QWERTY and Symbian^3 for $679. The handset is still out of stock though, which means that you will have to wait for a while until you get to hold it (our guess would be several weeks).
Just how soon is several weeks, you might wonder. Information from the Nokia blog shows that the handset is expected to arrive on January 13th at a “major” distributor, which the resource did not name, but mentioned it was neither Amazon, nor Newegg. The mysterious distributor is receiving 2,000 blue and 2,000 silver-colored units and while the date looks official, it could still be changed by Nokia. Even if not, it would most probably be a couple of days more before the Nokia E7 is available to the public.
One interesting detail – the Nokia E7 is widely expected with a fixed focus camera, or “full focus” as Nokia calls the technology. The listing on Amazon, however, attributes an auto-focus module to the device. This most probably is a mistake, but could also mean that Nokia changed its mind at the last moment and went with auto-focus as per the wishes of many users. What camera would you rather see on the Nokia E7?
