Nokia E6, X7 hit retail stores

The much anticipated Symbian Anna smartphones, the Nokia E6 and the Nokia X7, are reported to have hit stores in the UK and US. Being the first devices to ship with Symbian Anna is saying something.

We do not have official word from Nokia West Africa as to when the duo will hit stores in Nigeria, but it can’t be that far off in the near future.

Nokia E6 X7

Birds of the Same Feather?
Here at MobilityNigeria, Dayo is a fan of the X7. On the other hand, the E6 is looks like what the doctor ordered for me. In my opinion, the E6’s battery life and hardware QWERTY in a candybar form make it a must-have smart device.

My N8 and E7 both last me a full day of usage. I am excited about having a smartphone whose battery has the prospect to last at least 48 hours on a full charge.

  1. Yomi, it appears I’m as interested as you. I wish to try my hands on a candybar QWERTY phone.

    However you did no put the pricing of the two phones in the US & UK in your article. It’d be good to know so that we can extrapate how much it’d likely cost in Nigeria and thus start saving towards it.

    The battery life -yes

    If I will be permitted to go ‘off-topic’, please…

    This hardware keyboard thing. Have been frustrated on a number of occasions with the Symbian Swype text input system.

    I believe it trumps the hardware keyboard – most of the time.

    The frustration results from the fact that Swype AUTOMATICALLY adds EVEY new word you type nto its dictionary – errors and all. That is not very smart.

    I would want to see a situation (as we have in Dasur SlideIt) where you you have the discretion as to WHEN to store a particular word on the dictionary.

    It will then be – to me – the ultimate input system , for both ‘intuitive spellers’, as well as ‘touch-typists’

    End of rant!

    Continual improvement! Stay as the best!

  5. E6 all the way.
    Am sure we will be getting it soon.

    And there is news that N8 will get Symbian Ann in coming weeks.
