Nokia E7 delayed until early 2011
According to Reuters, the Nokia E7 has been delayed until early 2011 "to ensure the best possible user experience on the E7". As the N8 was also delayed, E7's delay does not surprise much, but it surely does not help Nokia regain its market position... There's no news about the Meego based N9, either.
