Nokia announced today the launch of three new mobile phones, the Nokia 6700 classic, the Nokia 6303 classic and the Nokia 2700 classic. The new handsets include the same design formula that allowed the Finnish manufacturer to become a leading developer of mobile phones, and they include the functionality one would expect in today's hectic times, complemented by premium designs, as well as competitive prices.
First in line comes Nokia 6700, delivering smooth surfaces, rich materials and precisely-crafted parts, as well as a full metal keymat. The handset includes a 5-megapixel camera, along with GPS navigation with Nokia Maps and high-speed data access capabilities. The phone is expected to come to the market at a price tag of EUR 235, before taxes and subsidies.
The Nokia 6700 classic is the follower of the company's Nokia 6300
, one of the most successful handsets the maker has ever released. As Soren Petersen, senior vice president, Nokia, said, “The Nokia 6300 raised the bar in terms of design and premium materials when it arrived in 2006 and topped all sales records for a mid-range mobile phone. The Nokia 6700 moves that bar even higher with a beautiful, slim design and perfectly balanced practicality.” He also added that “Our new arrival shares the same 'DNA' as its predecessor and we believe that it will be one of our best selling devices in 2009.”
The second new device unveiled by Nokia is the 6303 classic, a great option for those who can see the value in Nokia 6300. The handset sports a 3.2-megapixel camera, a large 2.2-inch screen, support for Nokia Maps, as well as a lot of other features and capabilities. The device comes with a 3.5-mm audio jack meant to enhance the music listening experience. Users will be able to carry with them thousands of favorite songs, while the battery performance will allow them to enjoy a large number of tracks. The phone will hit the market at an estimated retail price of EUR 135, before taxes and subsidies.
The third in line is the Nokia 2700 classic, one of the most affordable well-featured handsets, sporting a price tag of only EUR 65 before taxes and subsidies. The device includes a memory card slot that supports up to 2GB of storage, an integrated digital music player and a 2.0-megapixel camera.
“These features mean people can save, access and share files in hundreds of formats via Nokia's online service, Share on Ovi, or a number of other websites. The rich features and simple interface mean that in many cases, the Nokia 2700 classic will provide its owner's first Internet experience,” stated Petersen. The new handsets should start shipping in the second quarter of the year.
