T-Mobile brings Nokia C7 Astound to US, a Symbian smart phone offering by Finnish Cellular giant Nokia. Nokia C 7 Astound is an interesting move, and it is apparently one of the few last Symbian gadgets by Nokia Corporation. Nokia has established a good reputation with their Nokia N8 camera phone which Nokia claims is the best camera phone of the world right now, Nokia has definitely injected some of their N8 expertise into C7.
Wi-Fi quality is expected to be good, but I don't have real user stories related to it yet. I hope we'll get a good deal of reviews soon. Maybe this phone will be a choice for people annoyed poor battery life of high end smart phones.
The capacitive touch is pretty good than previous Nokia offerings, but still AMOLED display is not comparable to many Samsung Super AMOLED based devices.

Price of Nokia C7 on T-Mobile USA is yet to be decided, its not listed on T-Mobile web site on time of this writing. But Amazon is selling unlocked Nokia C7 in $209.
What is the Price of Nokia C7 in Pakistan?
Price of Nokia C7 in Pakistan is 29000 rupees at the moment. This price of Nokia C 7 was quoted on a phone call, maybe if we go to market by ourselves we could get a deal around 27000/27500/28000. This was the price of brand new Nokia C-7 with one year warranty.
Price of unlocked Nokia C7 Astound was $389 on time of this writing, which makes me think if you're spending $389 on a Symbian phone then why not get a better HTC Windows Phone 7 or Motorola Android phone by adding just $100 and spending a total sum of $499? Its nothing that would create thrill in market, its just another smart phone. So just wait for couple of months, and let the prices come down.
Apparently Nokia's somehow pulling itself together with models like Nokia E5, Nokia C3-00, Nokia X2-01, Nokia C6 which is pretty interesting though.
