Surprisingly enough, after taking its time with the Nokia N8, the Finns rush to launch the C7 model. Only 28 days after being announced, the handset is now shipping to its customers, according to Nokia Conversations. Unveiled at Nokia World, the handset is the second Symbian^3 model to reach retail, after the N8.

Nokia C7 matches most of the specs on the N8, aside from the 12MP camera and the HDMI port and of course it comes with a more decent price. Here’s a specs list of the device:

Dimensions: 117.3 x 56.8 x 10.5mm
Weight: 130 grams
Display: AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, 3.5 inches, 360 x 640 pixels
Memory: 8GB storage, 256MB RAM, 1GB ROM, microSD card slot (up to 32GB)
Connectivity: HSDPA, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0 with A2DP
Camera: 8MP, fixed focus, dual LED flash, 25 fps 720p video capture
OS: Symbian^3
CPU: ARM 11 680 MHz processor, 3D graphics accelerator
Battery: 1200 mAh, 9 h 30 min 2G talk time/ up to 5 h 3G talk time

Nokia C7 will retail for around 335 EUR, but this is the price without taxes, so it might even reach 400 EUR. Carrier subsidies will probably take the price tag down a notch.
