The Nokia E7 has been delayed until early 2011, missing its December release window. Nokia had been insisting the E7 was on track for retail availability before the end of the year as recently as last month, but unspecified issues have forced the company to postpone that. “To ensure the best possible user experience on the E7 we have decided to begin shipping it in early 2011″ a Nokia spokesperson told Reuters.
Announced at Nokia World 2010 back in September, the E7 has a full QWERTY keyboard and a 4-inch touchscreen, and was described by the company as the spiritual successor to the original Nokia Communicator. I am waiting to hear back from Nokia, hopefully with some more details as to the E7′s untimely release.
