Nokia X7 Release Delighted Symbian Mobile Casinos and 3D Gaming Fans
Apr 13, 2011
The Nokia X7 Smartphone is a powerful tool that any gamer would love to own unless you knew that the company will soon stop supporting them.
Nokia breathed some life back into what weeks ago seemed like a slowly dying brand by unexpectedly releasing the Nokia X7 smartphone powered by the newest update of the Symbian OS called ‘Anna’.
Yesterday’s London release surprised mobile casino analysts and gave a spark of hope to the millions of Symbian fans, that the Microsoft deal is not as well rooted as they previously thought.
The Nokia X7 mobile is a turbocharged powerhouse encased in a smooth and very attractive stainless steel outer layer appealing to both the sight and touch. The Symbian powered X7 was specifically designed for the ‘processor and graphic intense entertainment’ apps and mobile casino games.
The smartphone uses a state-of-the-art AMOLED 4-inch full-touch-screen with 16 million colors, a 640×360 pixel resolution, and is protected by the scratch and break resistant Gorilla glass.
An 8GB memory card expandable to 32GB, as well as 320MB of internal ROM, will easily handle even the most demanding memory consuming apps and casino games for a long time to come. The Nokia X7 powerful graphics processor integrates with OpenGL 2.0 along with the onboard Accelerator to allowing the smartphone to display smooth 3D graphics from Nokia Mobile Gambling Establishments.
The X7 Li-Ion battery has 6.5 hours of GSM talk time or 4.5 hours of WCDMA talk time. The smartphone also comes with an 8MP Dual LED flash camera, a Pentaband 2G/3G network, WiFi, Bluetooth 3, USB, Stereo, GPS and all weighing under 146grams.
The Nokia X7 is powered by the Symbian^3 Anna (PR2) Operating System which is essentially the same as the current version except for minor cosmetic changes (now icons with rounded corners!), better Ovi maps, a browser that promises to be three times faster than the last and finally a better designed UI which allegedly responds quicker to ‘fluid gesture movements’, whatever those may be.
The X7 Nokia Smartphone will become available retail sometime around early to mid June of this year at the cost of $630 (€380) not including taxes, fees, extras.
