PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless As I'm working on a long and detailed article about Psion and Symbian (similar in setup to the Palm article), I need to dive into a number of devices that I have never personally owned. One of the devices that was atop my list was what I think is the ultimate Symbian device: the Nokia E7 - the last of the long line of Communicators, released in early 2011. While more detailed information about it will find its way into the Psion/Symbian article, I figured it'd be interesting to give a few first impressions.

Let's not forget the fact that Symbian has proper USB-OTG support. Mice, external drives, keyboards, all over regular USB - no proprietary connectors involved.

In fact, just today I found out that the E7 supports, over USB... My Griffin iMic, an external USB soundcard.



Admittedly, so does android (on some devices, with the right kernel, and if the moon is waning gibbous) - though given the age difference, that's not saying much. ;)
