Nokia 701 Symbian Belle
Nokia has introduced three smartphones, the Nokia 600, 700 and 701, which the Finnish mobile manufacturer said are respectively the loudest, smallest and brightest handsets it has ever made.
The devices were unveiled on Wednesday alongside an update to the Symbian operating system, called Belle, which brings support for near-field communication (NFC) functionality, a new notifications system and home screens that can be customised by the user.
"Each of these three new Nokia smartphones not only add new designs, features and performance to our smartphone range, they each represent a very distinct set of unique priorities," said Colin Giles, vice president of sales at Nokia, at a launch event. "We will use Symbian to introduce competitive products that offer more choice at affordable prices to people all over the world."
The Nokia 700 — the company's smallest smartphone — measures 110 by 50.7 by 9.7mm (shown above). It has a 1GHz processor, a 3.2-inch Amoled display, a five-megapixel camera, 2GB of internal memory and support for microSD cards up to 32GB.
In addition, the company said the 700 has been designed making "extensive use of eco-friendly materials and features to minimise battery consumption". The smartphone is scheduled for release in the third quarter and will cost around €270 (£238).
