Nokia announces E7, C7 and C6-01 Symbian^3 smartphones
Nokia World is in progress - they just announced three new Symbian phones. Meet the Nokia E7, C7 and C6. They are joining Nokia N8 to the Symbian^3 party with 720p video recording of their own along with generous use of steel and aluminum.
Starting with the Nokia E7, it's got a tilting 4" AMOLED touchscreen with nHD resolution and a four row slide-out QWERTY keyboard. It's got high-end connectivity - 10.2Mbps HSDPA, 2Mbps HSUPA, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, A-GPS and Cell-ID positioning along with USB On-The-Go.
The Nokia E7 highlights list continue with an 8MP camera with dual-LED flash, 720p video capture, and 16GB of built-in storage. There's HDMI port with Dolby Digital Plus surround sound support. The Nokia E7 weighs a hefty 176 grams - but that's because it's made of anodized aluminum.
The Nokia E7 display uses the new ClearBlack technology, which promises darker blacks, better sunlight legibility and lower power usage. The E7 is expected to cost around 495 euro (637 USD) before taxes and subsidies.
Here are some live photos of the Nokia E7. For more, check out our live coverage for our hands-on impressions of the E7.
Next, we're moving on to the Nokia C7 - this stainless steel beauty is just 10.5 mm thin. It too has an 8MP fixed-focus camera with dual-LED flash and 720p video, and the same excellent connectivity features as the E7, except the HDMI - it relies on the more traditional composite video-out instead.
The Nokia C7 has a 3.5" AMOLED screen with nHD resolution and 8GB of built-in memory. But unlike the E7, the C7 memory is expandable through the microSD card slot. The Nokia C7 is expected to cost 335 euro (430 US dollars).
Finally, the Nokia C6-01 (as opposed to the C6-00) is shorter than the C7 - 103.8mm vs. 117.3 mm. The screen size has been reduced - 3.2" AMOLED touchscreen with nHD resolution using the same ClearBlack technology as the E7.
The Nokia C6-01 boasts the same camera and connectivity features as the C7 (sans TV-out) and its 8GB built-in memory is extended by a 2GB microSD card in the box. It too has a stainless steel body though it's quite a bit thicker than the C7 - 13.9 mm.
The Nokia C6-01 is the cheapest of the bunch, it is expected to cost 260 euro (334 USD). The trio comes with free voice-guided GPS navigation (of course) and are expected to start shipping some time in Q4.
And before we go - a piece of bad news. Nokia won't be announcing MeeGo devices during this event.
