Nokia has delayed the launch of its full keyboard based smartphone, the E7 until early next year, missing the key end of year selling season when it was expected to have been available. The E7 was announced in September along with two other handsets and was slated to start shipping before the end of the year.
Nokia spokesman, Doug Dawson said: "To ensure the best possible user experience on the E7 we have decided to begin shipping it in early 2011." He didn't elaborate on what the problem was that had caused the delay.
Nokia's E7 smartphone comes with a four-inch touch screen and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, will sell at an estimated retail price of around EUR 495, excluding taxes and subsidies.
Nokia also had slight delays when it launched its flagship N8 handset.
