Nokia delays shipping E7 until “early 2011”

The Nokia E7 is expected to come to Canada – early rumours are that possibly Rogers or Bell will be released this device sometime in the Spring. However, news today couldn’t be going over well for their new Canadian-born CEO Stephen Elop.

The flagship slider was supposed to be available this month… but now a Nokia spokesperson has confirmed that “to ensure the best possible user experience on the E7 we have decided to begin shipping it in early 2011”. So this will probably start shipping in the January/February/March time frame and hopefully the Canadian date is still on track. Apparently it has something to do with a “minor durability issue” of the E7 hardware.
