Because these days, the only real smartphones left are the REAL smartphones, and so Nokia announced the availability of the Cybertronic-looking X7 in the Philippine market. Available in dark metal and light metal, the mean-looking X7 is the second Nokia smartphone to ship with the Symbian Anna software update.
“The large display on the Nokia X7 is perfect for internet browsing, playing games and viewing video content,” said Mike Smith, Device Portfolio Manager, Nokia Philippines. “Not only have we preloaded the Nokia X7 with the popular gamesAsphalt 5 HD and Galaxy on Fire HD, but our customers can now enjoy a whole bunch of other software improvements through Symbian Anna.

The display is covered with Gorilla Glass, one which we always expect first from a smartphone that promises all the good things about gaming and entertainment.And it's build is also "optimized" with a stainless steel shell, weighing in at 146g and measuring 119.7 x 62.8 x 11.9mm.
The Nokia X7 offers quad band GSM and support for multiple 3G networks, with support for GPRS and EDGE and can handle HSDPA at up to 10.2 Mbps and HSUPA at up to 2.0 Mbps.
Also with WiFi 802.11 b/g/n , the latest version of Bluetooth 3.0 with A2DP support, a Micro USB port, and offers USB OTG that "transforms" the device into a USB stick, allowing simple transfer of files between devices.

The Sam Witwicky in us is crying out to get a Nokia X7, A.S.A.P. Then we can do battle, right away!

Editor's note: Nokia has added some bonus features in the X7, notably the built-in GPS receiver and digital compass. Then came the claim that the X7's 1300 mAh Lithium Ion battery is capable of music playback for up to 50 hours from one single charge, a standby of up to 450 hours and a talktime of up to 6 and a half hours. The Techlab purchased a Nokia X7 two weeks ago, and we say, once we got hold of this contraption, we quickly felt all set and ready to roll out!
