Nokia X7 scheduled to arrive in India by June, with Symbian Anna onboard

Nokia has announced it will be launching the Nokia X7 sometime next month in India, within the second quarter of 2011. A 4-inch Symbian device similar to the Nokia N8 and E7, the X7 has the same 4-inch Nokia ClearBlack AMOLED display (16M colours and 640x360 pixels), but a more sharply angled look than its Symbian^3 predecessors. The Nokia X7 will be priced at around 380 Euros, roughly equal to Rs. 25,000.
The X7 as expected features the latest version of Symbian –Symbian Anna, which comes with numerous interface updates, a brand new browser, and many other performance improvements. Read more about the changes here. Powered by the same 680MHz ARM 11 processor and Broadcom BCM2727 GPU combination as the N8, the device has 256MB of RAM, 1GB of ROM, and will come with a 8GB microSD card pre-installed. It weighs a little more than the N8, at 146 grams, but is a little thinner, at 11.9 millimetres. It has the same 8MP camera as the E7. For detailed specs, refer to our previous coverage.
It has a 1200mAh battery that is rated to deliver up to 450 hours of standby time, up to 6.5 hours of talk time, and up to 50 hours of music play – not too shabby for an entertainment device. What do you think? Does it stand a chance in the market? Let me know in the comments section below:
