We review one of Nokia's last Symbian flagships
Much has changed since we last looked at a Nokia phone: what was once the undisputed king of smartphones is now fighting to stay a major player after Apple and Google took over. With Windows Phone coming soon, then, devices like the X7 are attempts to bridge the gap and keep Symbian relevant in an era where big screens, gaming, and Twitter mean more than phone calls and e-mail. But is it a proper swan song for an outgoing platform, or a sign that Nokia needed to embrace Microsoft sooner? We'll answer that in our X7 review.
