Nokia E7 shows up on Amazon with glorious price tag

The Nokia E7 showed up on Amazon in all of its glory and with equally glorious price tag. You canhave all the sweetness of full QWERTY and Symbian^3 for $679. Thehandset is still out of stock though, which means that you will haveto wait for a while until you get to hold it (our guess would beseveral weeks).



Just how soon is several weeks, youmight wonder. Information from the Nokia blog shows that the handsetis expected to arrive on January 13th at a “major”distributor, which the resource did not name, but mentioned it wasneither Amazon, nor Newegg. The mysterious distributor is receiving2,000 blue and 2,000 silver-colored units and while the date looksofficial, it could still be changed by Nokia. Even if not, it wouldmost probably be a couple of days more before the Nokia E7 isavailable to the public.



One interesting detail the Nokia E7 is widely expected with a fixed focus camera, or “fullfocus” as Nokia calls the technology. The listing on Amazon,however, attributes an auto-focus module to the device. This mostprobably is a mistake, but could also mean that Nokia changed itsmind at the last moment and went with auto-focus as per the wishes ofmany users. What camera would you rather see on the Nokia E7?

Uhm, a few days ago? It was there on the 5th of December, might have been there before then... But thanks for posting anyway. What do you think the price will settle down to?http://twitter.com/#!/skome/status/11489222665965568

Only a total asshole would pay this much for this phone. So many better phones on the market for way cheaper.

Hi, Dinesh here from Nokia Communications. We have not announced any shipping or in-store arrival dates for the Nokia E7, other than the fact that it is expected to begin shipping in early 2011. Naturally, the exact timing of when this smartphone is available in shops will vary from market to market.

i think its obvious that given the option, especially for a phone costing almost $700, one would always choose an auto focus camera. Also the iphone (slimmest smart phone in the world aparently) has a auto focus camera so the "keeping it slim" excuse is kaput....
