Nokia E7 To Be Revealed At Nokia World 2010

Sounds like the Nokia E7 will finally be getting an official unveiling at this year's annual Nokia World shindig, held this year in foggy London.

Reuters reports that the manufacturer will be introducing expectant phone fans to the Nokia N8 - the first handset to debut running the new Symbian ^3 software - as well as the E7 with MacBook Pro-inspired looks and confirmed to be sporting 'a large touchscreen and full keyboard'.

Despite losing ground in the smartphone market to Samsung and Apple, financial firm Morgan Stanley have recently double-upgraded their valuation of the Finnish phone maker due to a higher-than-expected consumer interest in the N8, as well as a competitive yet profitable price point for the device. 

Whilst I'm not going to bet the farm on the N8 and E7, it could be a sign of both a change in Nokia's fortunes and a renewed vigour for Symbian as an appealing and intuitive platform for luxury handsets.

"As the N8 starts shipping and other devices are unveiled, Nokia will be hoping that it can lay the foundation stones for its recovery given the onslaught of competitive products currently hitting the market," said Ben Wood, director of research at CCS Insight.

"It has made some big commitments on fixing Symbian and its first flagship product using the refreshed Symbian operating system. Failure is not an option," Wood continued.

Those looking for a closer look at the Nokia N8's features and functions ahead of next week's Nokia World can take a look at the final manual, available for download here as a PDF file.
