Nokia X7 Review

Nokia-X7 When I was asked to review the X7 I was quite excited to see the changes that the latest update to the Symbian operating system brought to the table. My first smartphone was a Nokia and I had pretty much every new flagship device up to and including the N95. I’ve since moved on to be a confirmed iOS user with the occasional use of the systems (even WebOS!) but I have ignored Nokia’s devices since the 5800 showed how, in my opinion, not to do a touch interface.

Nokia’s X7 was launched at the same times as the new version of its Symbian mobile platform, Anna. Together with the E6, the X7 is shipping with Anna preloaded. Many Nokia and Symbian fans out there will love this smartphone as it has a fair crack at finally delivering a usable touch based interface.

Is the X7 an alternative and does Symbian Anna have what it takes to compete with Android, Windows Phone or iOS?
