There is no doubt that E7 gives all that it promises. However at a price tag of $645 in USA and Rs29,300 in India it is expensive. Android phones are currently ruling the market. Most of the people will incline to buy an Android instead of purchasing a Symbian based phone from Nokia.
Nokia E7 is a business class phone. Nokia plans to target the Business sector with E7. This is different from how they did for the Nokia N8. But the feature it promises makes it a must-have smartphone.
