XML profiles of two rumored Nokia handsets have been spotted online, for the Nokia E7 – tipped to be the N8-style QWERTY phone leaked a few months back – and the Nokia C6-01. Both run Symbian^3 with a 640 x 360 display, WiFi and Bluetooth, with the C6-01 expected to have an 8-megapixel camera.
According to a leaked UK carrier roadmap – which seems to have been pretty accurate so far – the E7 is set to arrive in November, a few months after Nokia World 2010 in mid-September. There’s no similar date information for the C6-01, but judging by the Nokia Netherlands leak, it’s probably even closer to market.
The E7 is expected to be the same device as has been referred to previously as the N8-02, with some resemblance to the leaked Nokia N9 (running MeeGo) but more akin to the N8 with improved text entry abilities. Nokia has already confirmed that, after the N8, they will no longer be using Symbian^3 on Nseries handsets.
