We heard a rumor back in November that the Nokia E7 smartphone would be delayed until January 2011, and now according to Engadget, Nokia has now confirmed that the E7 wont launch until early 2011, instead of the December launch date that Nokia specified when the E7 was announced.
The delay is apparently due to a ‘minor durability issue’ which has been discovered in the Nokia e7 hardware, although there are no specifics on exactly what the problem is.
The Nokia E7 features a 4 inch touchscreen display, plus a full slide out QWERTY keyboard and runs Symbian 3, there is also an eight megapixel camera, which is capable of recording HD video in 720p, and this new smartphone features a battery that will give users up to 18 days of standby time and 9 hours of talk time.
Other specifications on the E7 include 16GB of built in storage, Dolby Digital Plus surround sound, HDMI out, and a range of social networking features and customizable home screens.
As soon as we get some more information on the actual launch date of the Nokia E7 we will let you guys know.
