Nokia 6600i slide
The number 6600 has ranked high with Nokia. We all remember the days, back in 2003, the curvy form of the Nokia 6600, which was the company's top-of-the-line Series 60 business phone.
It's since been recycled in the form of a new Series 40 device, the Nokia 6600 slide phone, which has just been announced.
The company claims that it's its ''smallest 5 megapixel slider to date''. Build quality is high as the quad-band 3G phone, which comes in black or silver colour schemes, offers brushed steel covers and chrome center key.
The screen is a 2.2-inch, 240 x 320 pixel, display with 16 million colours, while the 5 megapixel rear-mounted camera is backed with a double LED flash, autofocus and eight times zoom, and can handle video recording at up to 15 frames per second at 640 x 480 resolution.
The 6600i slide comes with GPS and Nokia Maps software for location-based services. The phone will also ship with a 1GB microSD card, which can be expanded up to 16GB, while you can listen to the FM radio thanks to bundled the Nokia WH-203 stereo headset.
The Nokia 6600i slide has an estimated retail price of 200 euros (excluding taxes and subsidies) and it is expected to start shipping in the third quarter of 2009.
Nokia E 52 Smartphone
Heavy talker, but light e-mailer? This new business phone from Nokia will be perfect, then.
They've just announced another smartphone in its E-series, the E52. The main feather in the E52's cap is the extra long-life battery, which should last users eight hours when talking on a single charge.
Weighing 98g, the E52 is one of the smallest E-series phones Nokia's launched, measuring 116 x 49 x 9.9 mm. HSDPA internet and a 3.2-megapixel camera have all been crammed on, as has A-GPS and – as a first – also boasts an inbuilt compass ( a La Android G1).
This one, though, is for the business users who aren't serious about emailing (there's no qwerty keyboard, sorry folks), the Nokia E52 will be launched in the second half of this year for around 245 Euros.
The new Nokia 6700 handset is set to hit the UK this month.
This is the successor to the much respected 6300, mixing simple, eye-catching styling with one or two high-end features. If that sounds like your kind of phone, you can pick it up in a matter of weeks in the UK.
19th June is the expected date of the UK launch, with a price of £269 for the sim-free version, which will be available from Nokia's flagship store on London's Regent Street or online from Nokia. If you don't happen to be in the capital, other operators will be offering the mid-range handset a week later, no doubt free with the right contract.
For your outlay, you get a handset with a slim profile, understated metallic looks and a few interesting selling points within, including a 5-megapixel camera, A-GPS with Nokia Maps, high-speed HSDPA data access, a 2.2-inch QVGA screen, up to 8GB of storage and two microphones for audio clarity. To top off the list is the lovely all-metal keypad.
It's certainly no iPhone beater, but if you want a phone primarily for calling, the Nokia 6700 does it well and does it with style.
