The Nokia E7-00, also known as Nokia E7, is a business-oriented QWERTY smartphone by Nokia from the Nokia Eseries.[5] It was announced at Nokia World in September 2010 together with the Nokia C6-01 and Nokia C7[5][6][7][8] and started shipping in February 2011. It is the second phone after the Nokia N8 to be running the Symbian^3 operating system.

When compared with the Nokia N8,[9] it has fixed mass storage of 16GB without a memory card slot, no FM transmitter and a less advanced camera, with Extended Depth of Field, instead of autofocus as in the N8 and the E90.[3] Like the Nokia N8, it comes with an HDMI-out connector and a non-user-replaceable battery that is smaller than the E90's.[10]

It has the same keyboard spring mechanism as the Nokia N97 mini, but has like the N8 an anodized aluminium casing. All this is different from the bulkier and heavier E90.[3]

Compared to the Nokia N97 mini and E90, the E7-00 has a multitouch capacitive touchscreen. Unlike the N8, N97 mini, and the E90, the E7-00 has an Active-matrix OLED (AMOLED) ClearBlack technology with a slightly lower resolution than the E90.[3] Vlasta Berka, general manager of Nokia Singapore, Malaysia and Brunei, talked about the trend of users who are using their smartphones for business.[11]

The Parliament of Finland bought 200 E7s in spring 2011; by late April 2012, over 50 of these phones had been serviced under warranty.[12]

The E7's battery is not user-removable,[13][14] although unofficial online tutorials on how to replace the battery exist.[15]
