Nokia Announces Three New Symbian^3 Phones: C6, C7, E7

Nokia World 2010 just wrapped up, and Nokia’s got some new models to show for it: the C6, C7, and E7. Here’s the rundown on each.

Quick Preview: Nokia 8800 Gold Arte

Following in the footsteps of the Sapphire Arte and Carbon Arte, the Gold Arte brings 18 carats of the stuff along with “premium quality leather.” No pleather here! Unfortunately, everything else – OLED screen, 3G, “tap for time”, 3.2 megapixel camera – is exactly the same as the previous iterations, and continues Nokia’s philosophy of [...]

Preview: Nokia 2605 Mirage Phone (Mega Budget CDMA)

The Nokia 2605 Mirage is slightly better than the recently announced 2608. Unfortunately, it’s still headed for Verizon’s bargain bins.

Preview: Nokia 2608 Phone (CDMA-ified 3555)

Continuing Nokia’s time-honored tradition of releasing dumbphones aimed at the CDMA market, the Nokia 2608, at first glance, actually looks like a slick phone. It’s very similar to the 3555, complete with the seamless back, although the keypad more closely resembles a Nokia N90 than anything. And it looks extremely thick.

Preview: Nokia N97 Phone (First Touch-Screen Nseries Phone)

Well, this is a rarity. For the first time in a long time, Nokia launched a surprise announcement with the latest Nseries handset, the N97. Already the first Nseries touch-screen phone, the N97 also packs in a slide-out/tilt-able QWERTY keyboard (can someone say arc slider?) and the usual badass Nseries features.

Preview: Nokia 6260 Slide

The original 6260 was a flip and the first S60 phone that I ever owned. The new 6260 is a slider and an S40 device. Where did it all go wrong? To be honest, the two phones have very little in common. The latest 6260 slide looks a lot like the 6220 Classic and 6210 [...]

Preview: Nokia E63 Phone (E71 Clone)

Today Nokia dropped an E-bomb on the world with the (completely random) announcement of the E63 smartphone. Essentially it’s a budget E71, with the exception of a couple nice features aimed towards the consumer market. Since it’s an Eseries device, it still retains business-y features such as the ability to switch work/personal modes. More details [...]

Preview: Nokia 5130 XpressMusic, Nokia 7100 Supernova

Geez. Six new Nokia models in one day, with one common theme: they’re all budget phones. The two best of the worst include new phones from the XpressMusic (fondly called the XpressPlastic series on this blog until this year) and Supernova series (a strictly middle-of-the-road collection of handsets). Inside: a look at the Nokia 5130 [...]

Preview: Nokia 5800 XpressMusic

The Tube is here. Nokia’s first full touch-screen cell phone was announced today at Nokia Remix in London/Singapore, along with a crapload of accessories, and, of course, the Comes With Music service. There’s nothing too surprising here – the 5800 XpressMusic was long rumored to be a mid-range music phone, and it certainly delivers in [...]

First Impressions: Nokia E66 Phone

A shiny new Nokia E66 arrived at my door today, and I spent a couple of hours transferring stuff from my old phone, changing settings, and just generally messing around with it. Here’s my initial impressions of the business-oriented slider:

First Impressions: Nokia 5610 XpressMusic

After a brief stint with the sort-of-low-end 5310 XpressMusic phone, I’m now looking at its successor – the Nokia 5610 XpressMusic. The two devices share the same red-on-black color scheme, but the 5610 is definitely the beefier (in more ways than one), more functional brother. So I’ve had it for only a couple of days, [...]
