I think it's ridiculous for Nokia to price the E7 like a flagship device which it simply isn't. It's barely competitive with the first Milestone which was released more than a year ago let alone the Milestone 2 or the Desire Z. The E7 is behind on CPU, RAM, resolution, lacks auto-focus and runs a dead-end OS. If this is Nokia's best phone for 2011 they are in serious trouble.
Does anyone know when this phone will be release in the USA. I am sick and tired of waiting for this phone. If I should purchase on eBay, will the warranty be valid in the USA.
That said, I am seriously considering moving on since Nokia cannot get their act together. Is there a comparable phone out there that has At&t 3G frequency.... preferably with a keyboard. Believe me.... now I see why Nokia is losing market share. Show us the phone in September 2010 and it is still not widely available in March 2011.... 6 months later... that's a darn shame.
I feel Flexman's pain.
To extend his question:
What is the best phone to get at the moment. I know I know, best changes per usage and what you need out of a phone. What I am asking is which phone is the most future proof that the battery does not drain right away?
Iphone 5th gen?
I know the Iphone is not our yet, but what would the N95 people go with at the moment? N95 being the best hardware and performance of any phone out there?

I would say the Atrix is the best phone at the moment and likely to remain so after the iPhone 5. It sets the standard for hardware specs for the industry and from the reviews, the experience matches the specs
Highlights of the specs include:
540 x 960 pixels resolution, 4 inch screen
1930 mAh battery
Tegra 2 chipset with dual-core processors
16GB storage + microSD
No other smartphone packs this combination of specs. The camera isn't as good as the N8 obviously but appears on par with other high-end smartphones.
If Nokia wants to stay competitive it needs a phone which matches the Atrix and adds an N8-level camera. If that could be combined with a substantial update of WP7, it could be a very interesting flagship phone for this year. I am not holding my breath.
I would love Nokia to make a comeback but realistically we will probably get another "transition year" of floundering.
I had Atrix for a week & returned it for Inspire. Atrix specs are good but I see it no better than any typical 1GHz CPU with 512MB RAM. It had horrible screen, looks washed out, small fonts, random reboots & average battery life even with a 1930mAH battery.
However, I am throughly impressed with Inspire, even with a 1230mAH battery, it is lasing 15+ hrs easily for me!! I am loving the sense UI..
I don't own the Atrix but I have read a fair number of reviews and comments, and most of them have been very positive. Perhaps you got a bad unit.
i've seen nothing but bad reviews of people complaining about the atrix. even here on hofo, in the android forum, a thread title "underwhelmed with the atrix". granted that is anecdotal. and i played with the atric twice now and i was indifferent, neither bad nor exceptionally blow away.
but in the XDA forums, people are returning the atrix in droves and getting the inspire instead. lots of unhappy people.

MY HOFO FEEDBACK
all help given is free, and as is. I'd hate for someone to try and sue me for a mobile bill
Something that continues to annoy me with all of the very powerful Android devices, even the newest dual core Tegra, is a visible hitching and jerkiness when zooming in and out of Web pages that are a little heavy. This is in comparison to a single core iPhone 4.
I don't think the Atrix shows well when compared to the N8, for example. I have no idea what it is, but the N8 seems to do things the Atrix does, but at a much reduced price and with much less powerful specifications. I thought I'd have an N8 as my everyday device by now, but it seems to me there continue to be operability issues with some Exchange servers, and I dislike that the browser won't redraw with enlarged fonts showing on one page without having to scroll.
It's not for me, I don't think. But the N8 is really a very nice device, especially if you're into taking high quality pictures and video with a pocketable device. Great spy phone, I guess. :-)
again, i think i will pass on e7.
it has been quite some time where release should have been and it keeps on getting pushed back, which certainly leads to consumer frustration
furthermore, coming from nokia n900(which is my favorite handset, ever) i am more excited for nokia n950 whch is said to feature the top of the line hardware and a OS which is on par
i may pass on the e7 but i am saying this now when it is unavailable
