Nokia announces 3 new Series 40 phones for the mass market
Nokia makes more handsets that I could ever keep track of and today they announced three new classic models. The Nokia 6700 classic, 6303 classic, and 2700 class are compact, reasonably priced handsets. All three devices run the Series 40 operating system. I’ll be getting the new Nokia Supernova to review for T-Mobile and look forward to trying out Series 40 since I hear it has come quite a ways and really is a powerful implementation of the Symbian operating system.
The 6700 classic is the successor to the 6300 and has a full metal keypad area, 5 megapixel camera with LED flash, FM radio, accelerometer, GPS receiver and Nokia Maps. The 6300 is a 3G device with support for HSPA. It has an estimated retail price of EUR 235.
The 6303 has a 3.2 megapixel camera with dual LED flash, FM radio, 2.2 inch display, GPS receiver and Nokia Maps, and 3.5mm headset jack. It has an estimated retail price of EUR 135.
The 2700 has a 2 megapixel camera, FM radio, 3.5mm headset jack, and Bluetooth radio. The 2700 has an estimated retail price of EUR 65.
All three new devices are scheduled to ship in the second quarter of 2009.
