Nokia X7 gaming phone turns up in hands-on video

Footage shows handset playing Need For Speed

Remember the Nokia N-Gage? Nokia’s first stab at a gaming handset – back in the humble days before dedicated app stores – was a bizarrely ill-conceived monster of a handset that required you to hold it side on to talk. Hopefully the X7, which has turned up in pics and video today, will be a different beast.

The device seems to be running an updated version of Symbian^3, with an 8-Megapixel camera and 4-inch display in a body fairly similar to the Nokia N8. What is different, however, is the speaker grills, of which there are no less than four. And they look beefy at that.

This points to the X7 being pitched as a full-on multimedia device – a plight aided by the footage of Need for Speed running pretty smoothly onscreen. Check out the video below to see for yourself:
