The handset obviously takes the N8 base, but uses a cheaper body
(plastic rather than anodized aluminum) and cuts down a few features .
The major cut is the camera - 8MP and LED flash vs. the 12MP camera
with xenon flash on the N8.
HDMI is also gone and the internal memory has been halved to 8GB.
The rest of it is the same - 3.5" nHD AMOLED, 680MHz CPU, 256MB RAM,
1200mAh Li-Ion battery and of course Symbian^3. The Nokia C7 also
supports the latest local wireless connectivity - Wi-Fi b/g/n and
Bluetooth 3.0 (which hit 10Mbit/s during testing).
Eldar Murtazin estimates that
the Nokia C7 will be available in mid-October or November for 350 euro
(based on the announced 370 euro price of the N8 with actual prices of
around 450 euro for pre-order).
