We've already had one alert telling us that Nokia's curvy C7 has started shipping, and praised the Finnish company for managing to get the Symbian^3 smartphone off the stage and out of the door in under 28 days. We're not sure where exactly Nokia's trucks were headed, however, since a new announcement says the C7 won't arrive on UK carriers until November 1st.
The C7 is up for preorder today from Nokia's online store, priced at £389 SIM-free or free on a £25 per month agreement. If you order through Nokia, you'll also get it a little earlier: from October 25th, in fact, or next Monday.
Until then, you'll have to make do with our unboxing and hands-on with the C7; our review is coming up soon.
