Nokia E7 versus Nokia N8
Nokia N8 Symbian 3 OS, AMOLED capacitive touchscreen 3.5 inches, 16 GB storage, microSD, ARM 11 680 MHz processor, 3D Graphics HW accelerator, Digital compass, Document viewer (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF), Video/photo editor, Flash Lite v4.0
The Nokia E7 and N8 are almost identical outside of the E7’s 4-inch display and slightly bigger chassis required to host it. There are a few other differences, though. For example, The 12.9mm-thin N8 has an FM transmitter and 2mm charging connector unlike the slightly thicker 13.6mm E7. The E7’s bigger display also trims back the reported talk time to 540 minutes (the N8 does 720 minutes). The N8 counters with the better camera and stereo mic, thanks to a big 1/1.83-inch 12 megapixel sensor and Xenon flash that require some extra girth on the backend. Oh, and no MicroSD slot on the E7, you get 16GB and that’s it.
