At the Symbian Exchange & Exposition in Amsterdam, ZDNet UK got a chance to play with Nokia's E7, a business-friendly device that the manufacturer is planning to release in the UK soon.
The handset closely resembles the Nokia N8, and like that phone it runs Symbian^3. However, it also has a QWERTY keyboard, which makes it a better emailing device than the more consumer-focused N8.
Nokia confirmed on Wednesday, through a post on Twitter, that the E7 will go on sale in December.

The E7's 4in. AMOLED screen slides up thanks to a rather large hinge that props it up at a comfortable angle when you're typing.
The 16:9 capacitive touchscreen has a resolution of 640 by 360 pixels. Overall, the E7 measures 62.4mm wide by 123.7mm deep by 13.6 mm thick and weighs 176g.
The E7 has an HDMI connection that allows you to view content on a high-definition TV set.
