Data Select gets Nokia X7 exclusive


Distributor to begin exclusively offering Nokia smartphone with latest version of Symbian OS from July 7

Data Select has secured exclusive rights to distribute the Nokia X7 smartphone (pictured) in the UK.

The device will be available from July 7 from Data Select, and the firm’s account managers are already able to take pre-orders.

The new Nokia device features a stainless steel casing, toughened glass screen, two speakers and a 4-inch AMOLED display.

The X7 is only the second Nokia handset to run Symbian Anna, the latest version of Nokia’s soon-to-be-replaced operating system.

Anna incorporates a number of new features, including a portrait qwerty touch keyboard and a “richer” maps service.

Nokia claims the new OS is also three times faster for web browsing, and Data Select said that new cross-app integration such as the ability to launch a route planner from postcodes contained in emails will increase productivity.
