N8 or E7 ?

Please find below an interesting approach to differentiate between them :




Which one should I get and why? I cannot seem to make up my mind due to the fact that I owned the 9300i, the E90, E70, E72 , etc. As you can see I am an E-series type of guy but the E7 does not strike me as a pure communicator :(.

Beer Your history

indicates a desire for a physical keyboard.
The E7 is the obvious choice.
You just get a few more bells and whistles .. the lack of micro SD is made up by the Host controller .. but why oh why don't they include it in the box?

The N8 is a media creation device first and foremost. The E7 is a text communications device first and foremost.

bear this in mind .. you can connect the N8 to a bluetooth or a corded keyboard via the host controller.

E7 is not actually a typical nokia E series phone. Rather you can call it a (bigger N8+physical qwerty - some features + full quick office). So you can call it a hybrid of multimedia and business phone.

Thank you all for your answer. As it was stated, I am a sucker for physical keyboards. At the moment I can get the N8 for 430 euros, contract free. When the E7 hits the shelves it will usually be 150-200 euros more. This has been the trend with Nokia communicator devices. If this is not the case, and their prices are similar, price will not be the de facto criterion anymore.

Bump


I ordered the N8. It should arrive in 1, 2 weeks. I hope I did not make a mistake by going, yet again, Nokia. I am surrounded by iPhones and Android devices. Hope my blind fanboyism for Nokia won't cost me !


NOKIA! I want a new FW out by the time I get the N8. Better touch, better browser and better performance!!!
