Read our comprehensive Nokia C7 review.

The Nokia C7 boasts a 3.5in AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, and also utilises a ClearBlack Display (CBD) -- the same screen found on the Nokia C6-01. Nokia claims the CBD offers a above-average contrast and has a polarising filter that cuts out the reflections that interfere with legibility. The company also states that the CBD will offer much better performance for use in direct sunlight, and that it is also more power efficient.

The CBD will compete with the "Super AMOLED" display used on the Samsung Galaxy S and the IPS "retina" display seen on the Apple iPhone 4, but its resolution of 640x360 is lower than both of these competitors.

The Nokia C7's features include an 8-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash, 720p HD video recording and 8GB of internal memory, along with a microSD card slot that will accept cards up to 32GB in size. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS connectivity are all included. The Nokia C7 will also ship with Nokia's Ovi Maps application which provides free full turn-by-turn navigation for the lifetime of the device.

The Nokia C7 is not expected to launch in Australia until early 2011. Pricing is yet to be announced.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
