The Nokia E7 handset, which comes with a tilting four-inch ClearBlack display and full qwerty keyboard, could result in an influx of people wanting to trade in mobiles.
It is due to arrive in stores in select markets this week (February 7th) and it is likely consumers will be keen to road-test the eight megapixel camera, the built-in VPN and the USB-On-The-Go function for themselves.
But that’s not all the device can do – according to the manufacturer, it offers drive or walk navigation in a total of 80 countries, with a version of Ovi Maps providing information regarding real-time traffic, subways, trains, trams, parking, speed limits, petrol stations and safety alerts.
Business users may also be taken by the handset, as it offers direct and secure access to email, contacts and calendars through Microsoft Exchange servers.
However, according to Techradar, the Google Nexus S – the first cell with the Android 2.3 operating system – is to be stocked by Vodafone soon, which could be the device people opt to trade in mobile phones for.
