Nokia announces 6700 Slide and 7230 devices

While much of my focus here lately has been on the Nokia N900, Nokia continues to release some great devices that appeal to the masses. Today Nokia announced the Nokia 6700 Slide and Nokia 7230. The 7230 is a Series 40 device and the 6700 Slide is a S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 2 powered device. Both have a similar slider form factor where the keypad is present below the display. They support 3G outside the US and there is no word on whether or not they will appear here.

Nokia 6700 Slide

The 6700 Slide is the more appealing device for me since it runs the S60 OS and is more high end than the 7230. It will be available in six colors (pink, red, blue, aluminum, lime, and purple) and the casing is aluminum so it has an iPod nano look to it. While it is a mid-tier device it comes with a 5 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics and dual LED flash, 2.2 inch QVGA display, microSD card slot, and FM radio. Unfortunately, it has a 2.5mm headset jack so it can’t really be marketed as a music player. It does not have WiFi, but does have Bluetooth and looks to be a solid phone to be sold for around EUR 160.

Nokia 7230

The Nokia 7230 is a lower end Series 40 device priced at EUR 100. The 7230 has a 3.2 megapixel camera, 2.4 inch display and 3G support (outside the US).

Part of the reason Nokia leads the world by such a significant margin is that they do continue to appeal across the broad spectrum of users across the globe since not everyone wants or needs a full blown smartphone.

These two new Nokias looks great, cool design and personality… which is an impressive improvment from this brand. What if the N900 cool look that cool ? I wish it would…

Also… touch screen versions would have been great…

I just bought Nokia’s 6700s.. its a heavily loaded phone.. but Wi-Fi in such a loaded phone was a must.. all is really great in this phone except that the chat application already installed in the phone doesnt work at all.. neither the phone allows/supports any chat application like yahoo mobile or ebuddy.. Other than these two drawbacks, its a great phone, good speakers, camera undoubtedly superb, gprs works really well.. If anyone can help me in getting the chat option work in the phone, i will be obliged :)
